     37-4-322. When publishing professional cards not unprofessional conduct. (1) It is not considered unprofessional for a dentist to place in any newspaper or publication, subject to the limitations stated in this section, a card bearing the dentist's name only, together with the dentist's degree or the word "dentist" and giving office location, hours, and telephone numbers. If the dentist limits the dentist's practice to a specialty, the dentist may announce it or the dentist may announce an absence from or a return to practice in the same manner.
     (2) A dentist may publish a list of fees, but the listing must include full and complete information stating if the published fee is minimum, maximum, or usual and whether or not any additional charges may be made for the services published. All announcements or publications must be done in a professional manner that will in no way coerce or confuse the public.
