Opposition to Proposal

The newly proposed regulation for additional training is redundant and has no purpose. Infection control training is already accounted for extensively with the current CDC and OSHA guidelines which require such training on an annual basis; furthermore, these existing guidelines have proven to be successful as demonstrated by the fact that the State of Virginia has, as I currently understand it, reported no cases of infection contraction due to pathogen exposure in a dental office.
