Inaccurate promotion of specialty status is deceiving and harmful to the public
Allowing dentists to promote themselves as having specialty training when they have not completed rigorous, multiyear, full-time didactic and clinical training in that specialty area will deceive the public and could prove harmful to public safety. The Board must protect the public and a decision to allow dentists to promote specialty recognition without adequate specialty training will jeopardize public safety.
