I'm finding all kinds of problems with the dental community, most of which starts with state dental boards. They are not there to keep the public safe, they exist to protect incompetent dentists and wall street corporations.
In most states the Executive Director is NOT a dentist, nor ever has been. Most are appointed by bureaucratic state administrations; a friend of a friend recommended them to the governor and so forth. However those "friends" are lobbyist! After appointment, they are seldom removed from office.
New "board members" are elected, but those member only meet once a month, sometimes less and do the business recommended by the Executive Director, who is there to draw a paycheck and little more. People are mislead into believing dental boards administer testing for new graduates to measure their competence, that is NOT the case any longer.
