Infection control training and certification for assistants
 

To require additional training and certification for dental assistants would be unnecessary and redundant.  The Infection control protocols are dictated by OSHA and CDC requirements and guidelines.  This additional requirement would place a unneeded and additional burden on dental practices which have demonstrated exceptional compliance with current standards.  This is another layer of regulation which is already covered in current standards.  I do not feel this is necessary.

Respectfully, 

Tom Olivero DDS
