B) Dental Professionals
Applicants pledge that they are licensed in their geographic area to provide dental services. They are expected to offer suggestions for treatment on a general level only and may offer a in-office consultation (fees may vary). A diagnosis is not possible without an actual examination and therefore you need to use care in your responses. Attempt to offer several alternatives if possible and simply ignore any posted questions that do not appear to be appropriate. Further terms may be detailed for members and may change without notice. The website is not responsible for any losses/damages/problems associated with participating in this program.
