Oppose duplicate regulation

All dentists in our state are required to have CPR training.  The board has just recently reviewed all the safety regulations in response to the increase in sedation dentistry. We do not need duplicate regulations for dentists that do not sedate patients. The foundation seeking these changes have weak evidence to support the need for these changes that would place a time and expense burden on dentists that are a very low risk population.  Do they have any evidence of death resulting from local anesthesia only? Please do not agree to a regulation change that we do not need.
