We vow to do no harm. Please consider this oath that we all take as dentists and think of how this change could adversely affect your own family and loved ones when they are seeking out care.

It is our duty as a profession to ensure that patients are as informed as possible when it comes to their care. Making it more difficult for a patient to understand the qualifications of their provider is not something that should even be up for discussion.
