opposition to proposed additional training for dental assistants

I support the VDA President's letter opposing the proposed legislation for additional training for dental assistants. It has been covered by the CDC and OSHA guidlines and dentistry has done a fantastic job following these guidelines. More legislation would be redundant and an additional cost to dental offices when costs have gone up already during this COVID crises.
