Paul Lauter: Why Do Dentists Need to be Licensed?

In response to the ALEC-inspired legislation to allow uncertified, unlicensed people to teach, Paul Lauter–Emeritus Distinguished Professor of English at Trinity College–poses a simple question:

Why not?

Why do doctors need to be licensed? Why do lawyers have to pass the bar exam? Why do airplane pilots need a license? Why do drivers need a license?
