Oppose Additional Dental Assistant Training Requirements
 

As a dental practice owner and full-time clinician, I am very concerned all my staff maintain high infection control standards.   New staff receive initial training and all staff receive periodic and annual refresher training based on OSHA and CDC Guidelines.  I agree with the position of the VDA that implementing an additional layer of requirements would be redundant and hence, I am in opposition.

Respectfully, 

Michael L. Hutchings, DDS
