STRONGLY OPPOSE
 

Dear Virginia Board of Dentistry,

The attempt to deregulate the specialty of orthodontics, allowing general dentists to implement orthodontic procedures in our patients is poorly thought.

As specialists we take years of education, clinical practice and seminars to understand the implications of our treatment. I have seen the damage done when our treatment outcomes are not well understood or executed.

Please respect our education and the imperative need to keep providing exceptional care to our patients.

Thank you,

Dr. Calkins.
