My vote is a resounding "YES", I am in favor of this petition.

I am in favor of the petition to amend regulations to require Virginia dentists to be trained and equipped to manage medical emergencies consistent with the Six Links of Survival as a condition of initial or continuing licensure.  I believe that the level of safety and emergency preparedness can never be too high.

In regard to all of those in opposition of the petition (a majority of whom are dentists), I ask you, "why  wouldn't you want to have the highest level of knowledge and awareness of safety and emergency preparedness for yourself and every member of your staff in order to protect the lives of your patients at any cost?  Wouldn't you want the same for yourself and your loved-ones?"
