STRONGLY OPPOSED
 

Allowing this will endanger the public because they will not understand the level of education their provider has. They will not be allowed to make an informed decision because they will not understand the misinformation unless digging deeper. Dentistry unfortunately has providers whose ethics are suspect and this only opens the door to more of that. As someone who has spent years and thousands of dollars learning a specialty this devalues our work. Please do not change the law.
