Oppose Six Links Survival Ruling

Dentists are already trained in Basic Life Support. Also for those of us who administer oral sedation, we are also required to have ACLS. The Six Links for Survival will just duplicate that which we already do. This will ultimately cost the patient more as the costs will be passed on. I am, as I am sure most all dentists are, already doing a great deal to insure the safety of our patients. We, as a profession, do more than other specialities. Put an end to the continual regulations that interfere with patient care and drives up the cost of healthcare.
