Opposed Regulation for Six Links of Survival in Virginia

     I strongly oppose a regulation requiring 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. The Dental Schools and Speciality Residencies are responsible for teaching medical emergencies in the dental offices. The Board should not be dictated by an individual organizaton in setting standards for the quality of care in Virginia. Many excellent courses are given on Medical Emergencies in the Dental Offices(Dr. Stanley Malamed) so that dentists can receive excellent education and training on medical emergencies.
