Strongly Oppose Advertising Changes

As a pediatric dentist I strongly oppose any changes to the current advertising legislation in the VA Board if Dentistry. I do not feel the General public is not educated enough to understand the difference of a general dentist saying they do specialty dentistry services. I feel that it would be detriment to the health and well-being of many children if this change in amendments occurred.
