STRONGLY OPPOSED
 

As an endodontist, I spent two years in advanced specialty training learning how to treat complicated cases and manage emergencies, and studying the research to back my clinical decisions.  This bill will allow anyone to claim they specialize in ‘root canals’ which is a true disservice to our patients who won’t know the difference in the quality of care they are receiving.  This is deceitful to the public and seems criminal...especially to those of us who put the time in training for 2-3 years beyond dental school.
