DISAGREE STRONGLY/MISLEADING
 

Although a dentist may be capable of doing any specialty procedure well, it is extreemly misleading to the public to allow that dentist to advertise as a specialist. The ADA has always had requirements for specialists in order to protect the public and changing that would be wrong.
