Oppose
 

I strongly oppose this proposition. While it important to acknowledge when one has received additional and supplementary training within the different disciplines of dentistry, the specific term specialist or specialized should strictly connote and disnguish those with credentials from accredited residency programs. This is an important term for the patients/public to best understand the level of training, expertise, and practice focus of the provider.
