    I be l ieve that the cl inical p rac t i ce of dent is t ry is served wel l by general dent ists and the recogn ized special t ies. No need has been ~dentified for addi t ional special areas of p rachce - - recogn ized or non-recognized. The proposal appears to cen ter on pract i t ioners a t temphng to ach ieve "a spec ia l ty s ta tus" w~thout satisfy- ing the demands of a formal educahona l program, the responsibd~ty of pat ient care or a requ i rement for l imitahon of p rac t ice to that special disciphne.

    These are my ob jechons to the CDE proposal . AAE m e m b e r s should also study the issue and make their thoughts known to the ADA Counci l on Dental Educat ion before a f inal resolut ion is p resented to the House of Delegates.
