Members of the Board,
I am a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist with over 33 years in the profession practicing with four other Board Certified Pediatric Dentists. Each of us spent two or more years in specialty training plus passing the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry's multi-part examinations. We did this to provide the very best care for our patients.
Allowing dentists who have not met the educational requirements of the Commission of Dental Accreditation to call themselves specialists deceives the public and could lead to patient harm by unscrupulous practitioners.
Thanks you for your time.
