Very Strongly Oppose

I am in disbelief that there are people who believe that the changes that have been suggested to specialty advertising feel that this in any way furthers or improves the quality or standard of care for Virginia patients. People we see on a daily basis are already misled and confused by the division and meaning of dental specialties. Further dilution of the term "specialty" in our advertising is harmful, and if passed there WILL be cases where the public's lack of knowledge about our educational processes and experience will be taken advantage of, risking injury as a result.
