The dental boards sole duty Is protection of the public. I do not believe it serves the public to be unaware of the training of the person doing invasive medical procedures to their own body. It is a sacred trust we hold and we must not do anything to diminish that trust. Disclosing the type of provider you are is critically important as someone informed can then make a better choice. We do informed consent for a reason.
