Deceiving the public by deregulation of dental specialty advertising. Strongly opposed.

The Virginia State Board of Dentistry should be able to protect the public from harm by not allowing a dentist to mislead their patients into believing that they can perform dental procedures with the same education, skills and qualifications as a specialist who has had the proper advance dental education training accredited by CODA. I strongly support the American Association of Endodontist firm stance of opposing deregulation of dental specialty advertising.
