NOIRA regarding additional training for infection control

I am opposed to the proposed regulations to require additional infection control for dental assistants. The current state laws already require dentist to provide and be responsible for proper infection control training of our staff. In our offices, we provide both CDC and OSHA training on an annual basis. We also have members of our team that are "compliance monitors" to make sure proper procedures and protocols are being followed at all times.
Additional training beyond what is already required would be a burden to our practice and be redundant.
