Additional Info on recent changes in definitions by the NC Board of Dentistry

In response to recent ADA actions regarding dental specialties and specialists, the North Carolina Board of Dentistry revised their advertising regulations. There does not appear to be a mecahnism to attach those changes here but they are very detailed and do appear to be designed to inform the public more completely about the educational qualifications of providers related to the services they purport to be experts in or to which services they have limited their practice. I recommend that the Virginia BOD evaluate actions by the NC board and see how something like that might fit for Virginia.
