I am opposed to additional certification in infection control for Dental Assistants. Dental offices adhering to OSHA and CDC guidelines train all of their staff (hygienists, dental assistants and administrative staff) on a regular basis how to protect themselves and their patients. This certification process would be a costly and unnecessary. I have not heard of any problems in dental offices with the current training requirements.
