**UPDATE** 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.  Until the Board revises said rules and the revisions become effective, a dentist may advertise as a specialist if he/she has completed an accredited program in a specialty currently recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA) or is a diplomate of a national certifying board of a specialty currently recognized by the ADA or is a diplomate of a certifying board of a specialty currently recognized by the American Board of Dental Specialties (ABDS).  It is anticipated that the Board will vote to amend said rules in the near future.
