SPECIALTY RULES TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED

SPECIALTY RULES TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED

Please be advised that the Ohio State Dental Board passed a motion at the March 7th, 2018 meeting to temporarily suspend the enforcement of the Board’s specialty designation (4715-5-04) and advertising (4715-13-05) rules until such time that the Board has amended said rules.  Please note that not any dentist may claim to be a specialist and advertise as such.  The only dentists that may advertise as specialists are diplomates of a national certifying board of a specialty recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA) or a diplomate of a certifying board currently recognized by the American Board of Dental Specialties (ABDS) until the Board revises said rules and the revisions become effective.  To further clarify, a general dentist who is not currently a diplomate of any of the aforementioned certifying boards recognized by the ADA or ABDS is not permitted to advertise as a specialist
