Speciality ad regulation a must!
 

We must protect the patients.  Advertising as a specialist without the credentials is poor protection for the public that knows no difference.  The ADA is clear concerning speciality training and the board should be make sure that the dentist who call themselves specialists are trained in that specialty.
