Opposed to recognition of dental specialties other than those standardized and recognized by the ADA
The American Dental Association has recognized the current specialties in dentistry and set guidelines for one to achieve the title of specialist. Each recognized specialty sets the standards to achieve Board Certification in that recognized specialty. As dentists, it's false advertising to label yourself as a specialist when you know the governing body of dentistry does not recognize you as such. This attempted ammendment goes in direct violation of the standards set by the ADA.
