Use of Specialty Titles: The AVMA Principles of Veterinary Medical Ethics state: It is unethical for veterinarians to identify themselves as or in any way imply that they are members of an AVMA recognized specialty organization until such time as such certification has been awarded. AVDC has adopted the Guidelines for Use of Specialty Titles, prepared by the American Board of Veterinary Specialties of the American Veterinary Medical Association.

By signing the AVDC Training Program Registration form, an individual submitting an application for registration of a training program acknowledges that s/he may not use the terms ‘board eligible’, ‘board qualified’, ‘veterinary dental specialist’ or ‘veterinary dentist’, and may not make or imply any connection with AVDC until such time as the individual passes the AVDC examination and is awarded the AVDC Diploma.

The registration of an AVDC training program of an individual who is not in compliance with the policy stated above may be terminated by AVDC, in which case the individual will not be permitted to complete the AVDC credentials and/or the examination procedures, and, when appropriate, the circumstances may be reported by AVDC to the individual’s State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners.
