Dear Members of the Virginia Board of Dentistry,
As a former member of the Virginia Board of Dentistry, former Chair of Old Dominion University, School of Dental Hygiene, member of the VDHA and a semi retired clinician with over 40 years of practice, I support the requirement of the DA I to complete training in Infection Prevention and Control. This training is readily accessible as a continuing education course provided by any of the many educational sponsors listed in the Regulations.
This is the very least that can be required for the Board to ensure the public and entire dental team are protected.
Thank you for the opportunity to be heard as a supporter of training regulations for the DA I.
Margaret L. Green, RDH, MS
