I've been lurking on these dental forums for a while now and the perception I am getting (again help me see the light if I am wrong) is that it is almost "A ok" for general dentists to encroach on the specialists scope of practice, but the moment a specialist want to practice some general dentistry (which they went through) by not falsely advertising then everyone gets upset and it's frowned upon...? I mean at least the specialist (you would argue maybe rusty) went through the education as a general dentist rather than taking CE courses (not very practical training I assume) to gain some kind of "specialization." Idk, I am not trying to offend any practicing professional but it just seems unfair that you would do things to people of your same profession that you would not want them to do to you. I know a man's/woman's gotta eat and has other mouths to feed...so please help me correct my confusion if there is one, may be apple to oranges, but to me it seems like one sacrificed 4-6yrs doing extra training so they should rightfully have the edge. If not then maybe general dentists shouldn't encroach in their scope.....no?
