AAID Hails Florida Court Verdict Allowing Advertising of Bona Fide Dental Credentials
Date:4/8/2009

CHICAGO, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- A Florida judge has ruled that a state law restricting how dentists can advertise credentials issued by bona fide professional organizations is unconstitutional and violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the US Constitution. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) said today the verdict is a victory for consumers evaluating the qualifications and experience of dentists who perform implant procedures and for practitioners entitled to promote their credentials to the public.

"We are very pleased with this decision recognizing the rights of dentists with bona fide credentials to advertise them to the public without negative disclaimers and offer consumers valid information from which they can evaluate qualifications of dentists in their communities," said AAID President Beverly Dunn, DDS. "Also, the decision noted that AAID and other dental organizations provide substantial training that enhances proficiency and competency and benefits consumers as well."

At issue was a Florida statute preventing advertising of membership in or credentials earned from any dental organization not recognized by the Florida Board of Dentistry (FDB). Florida's dental board only recognizes specialty credentials issued by the American Dental Association (ADA). Therefore, implant dentists who wanted to advertise their AAID credentials had to include an onerous disclaimer that implant dentistry is not a recognized specialty of ADA or the FDB and that AAID is not a recognized specialty accrediting organization. The case stemmed from multiple challenges to the constitutionality of the Florida statute by dentists with credentials from AAID, the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Circuit Court Judge Frank E. Sheffield ruled in favor of the plaintiffs on April 3.

"The Court found that these advertising restrictions were unconstitutional on
