Our goal is to make sure the public is protected while in the dental office. Every dental office has an emergency kit, oxygen and a trained doctor and staff. Doctors are required to take continuing education in order to renew their license. The concerns of the public are legitimate. However, the current rules and regulations governing the dental profession adequately protect the public.
Let’s not let knee jerk reaction to current events govern our profession. Our current Rules and Regulations, if followed by the dentist, are sufficient to protect the public.
