11. On consultation with the ADA Council on Dental Practice Dr. Don Collins, it

appears that the "standard of care" is decided in the courts on a county by county basis by testimony of expert witnesses in response to medical malpractice lawsuits. The profession has resisted efforts to develop set standards for itself. In my opinion, this is a potentially dangerous system by which to run health care for the public. It allows backward practitioners to continue to practice on humans for extended periods of time.

In addition, since the "standard of care" varies from county to county, to attempt to control treatment outcomes and costs is impossible.
