WARNING: The ADA&C is believed to have ties to a former lab-sponsored cosmetic dentistry training program which was considered by many experts to be promoting overly aggressive aesthetic treatment. After showering the owner with awards, some of the ADA&C council may have felt the rampant over-treatment (which may have been called 'practice creep' of gp's thinking they were prosthodontists by a former president) needed to be stopped but warning the public would have harmed the reputation of the profession so the council approached the problem a different way with very selective prosecution and extreme changes to the advertising guidelines. The failure to warn the public of a known risk may be a breach of trust and the Health Minister has been asked to consider an investigation. This critical topic that demonstrates hypocrisy at the upper levels is explained in the video below titled 'Harmful Training'.
Please note dentists who have simply attended the training program mentioned are not considered to be unethical as each clinician needs to be judged as an individual. There is evidence that the ADA&C chose to use a known attendee as an example even though the dentist appeared to provide several recommendations for less aggressive treatment that were ignored by the patient. At the same time the ADA&C chose to punish a dentist who spoke out against 'veneerial disease' (while the ADA&C also published an internal document with the same concerns titled 'I Have Had Enough' which they refuse to acknowledge in writing).

"The OLD ADA&C created a MONSTER...so who needs to fix this? The latest report from the Competition Bureau suggests the NEW ADA&C needs to take responsibility for their own violations and neglect. Now with a brain-damaged child in Edmonton (we warned the Health Minister this exact thing could happen and she ignored the memo) the choice of a lawyer complaint director and fixation on 'advertising dangers' (eye roll) is now shocking the public with true health risks neglected by the organization. Isn't it time to ban the open bar at the council after-meetings where the 'magic happens'?"
CURRENT POLL RESULTS: Complaints Director is rated 'POOR' by 79.22% of dentists surveyed (see below). Should good dentists be treated like criminals and concerned patients wait a year to have simple concerns addressed? Hint: Try a Real Dentist again.

"The ADA&C has a divide and conquer strategy, which in elementary school was called bullying. They take ONE dentist and destroy him/her and then write up their version of events. Truth is immaterial. Keeping dentists scared hides their lack of understanding of real world dentistry. They are sticking around simply to feed off of us...we need people who will HELP us be our best, HELP resolve misunderstandings. Too many dentists have suffered already. It's time to end the insanity. The courts will never stand for the college rules that have been rammed down
our throats in a Old Boy's controlled system."
