This should not even be opened up for consideration.  Quality of care needs to be tightened up. If anything a reverse logic is needed.

Removing the limits as proposed in this amendment  allows non specialists (regardless of practice setting) to push the envelope to levels for which they are unqualified.  Why?   What are you hoping to achieve?  Screw the public?  Water down CODA based dental education?  Is there some corporate ulterior motive here? 

I most strongly oppose this amendment and it is my hope that the VDA will screw its head back on correctly.
