Opposed to the Six Links Proposal

I am opposed to the proposal to increase emergency medical training of dentists based on the six links on survival guide.  At present all dentists are required to be certified in basic life support.  Dentists who provide sedation are already required to have ACLS training.  I believe that any additional training would be redundant and serve no other purpose but provide income for the training companies who are lobbying to have this change passed.  I believe that emergency situations in dental offices are adequately treated with the training that we already have in place and any additional training would not be necessary.   Please use common sense when considering this proposal and vote to no.
