Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the proposed changes to the "specialty laws." I fully support the American Association of Orthodontists letter to the Board of Dentisry, in which the AAO expressed its strong opposition to the changes. Allowing those who have not gone on to pursue speciality training to advertise as specialists is reckless and short sided.
This is not about protecting our territory as specialists, but instead it is about public safety. I have read through the comments about those in favor of the changes, but I still cannot grasp how the removal of or changes to the speciality law and subsequent lowering of standards would help the general public.
Thank you for your time.
