Opposed to this new requirement
 

This proposed certification places an undue burden on rural practices, where employees may have to travel long distances to receive training.  Dental office employees are already required to receive annual training in OSHA and infection control.  Also, dental assistants entering the workforce will feel compelled to seek training at their own expense, to be considered for employment.
