Strongly Oppose

I strongly oppose these changes being considered and I am very disheartened to see that this topic has somehow found its way into the category of "debatable." These unwanted changes put the general population at risk, leaving them ill-informed about the educational background of their potential dental provider. That's not fair to anyone involved. These proposed changes are trying to solve a specific problem in a very generalized way, which will easily lead to disastrous consequences for dentistry and the population as a whole.
