STRONGLY OPPOSE
 

I strongly oppose the proposed change in the NOIRA to remove the definition of a specialist.  Virginia’s  public depends on you to oversee dentistry in our state.  It would be a disservice to them and a reduction in our standards of care to not recognize our dental specialties.  Years of post-doctoral education in a field of specialty is essential to the ongoing dental care of our patients.
