Against Six Links petition

 It's my feeling that the "Six Links of Survival as a condition of continuing licensure" would be an unnecessary burden to place on a dental practice.  We take courses in dental emergencies and emergencies in a dental practice.  Dentists are required to have BLS (CPR) training and some opt for ACLS.  I have been a strong believer and was using gloves & masks, autoclavable handpieces, water line treatment, and AED's   before being required by law. 


Please consider the cost benefit before developing regulations  in a situation where the system is working.
