Please consider this from a different angle....

Would you be comfortable going to a physician's office where the only emergency procedures/equipment available was CPR? Just because you aren't expecting an emergency doesn't mean one won't happen. Children react to things very differently than adults. CPR is a good start, but it is not the final answer. I consider dentists medical professionals, and I find it abhorrent that any medical professional would balk at emergency preparedness training. Please, make emergency training for dental professionals mandatory!
