The proposed new regulations requiring additional infection control training for dental assistants creates an unnecessary hurdle to becoming a dental assistant, especially in a COVID-19 world. Dental employers have always been responsible for this training and adhering to OSHA and CDC guidelines. We have done an exceptional job at this type of training and have had no issues with transmission. We do not need additional regulation with red tape making it more difficult to hire and maintain employees.
