Board of Dentistry,
I am writing in opposition to requirements that dental assistants receive separeate training and certification regarding infection control. The additional training would be redundant and unnecessary as it is already included in OSHA and CDC guidelines.
In addition to my knowledge the state of Virginia has not had any reported cases of infection contraction due to exposure in a dental office.
Thank you for your consideration.
