The Hippocratic oath says “Do No Harm”. A health care provider can’t truly do that if they never are in the presence of the patient. Practicing dentistry is a privilege that we all worked hard and trained extensively for years, and continue to do so in order to provide our patients the best care. We are all held responsible for our actions and the care of our patients by the state board of dentistry. We must correct this flaunting and circumvention of our rules and laws.
I am in 100% support of enforcing our current laws and strengthening the regulations which will allow enforcement of said laws.
