IN FAVOR of this proposal

I am strongly in favor of this proposal for added training in the dental offices across the state and the nation as a whole. I understand the cost to the professionals and their offices but in light of a death occuring during a procedure I believe it is a cost that needs to occur none the less. I also understand that all dental offices are not the same, some trained more that others, sone do more procedures that others...but as a concerned parent and citizen I think the training should be across the profession not by the office for the fact people can change places of employment at any given time and should be trained for the new office upon arrival, not 6 weeks later when it might be too late.

I also find it quite wierd that 99% of the dentists are opposed and site CPR training in place already as the reason, yet kids are dying in offices year after year...somehow this does not add up. To say 2 out of 1,000,000 is ok is ABSURD. Even 1 out of 1,000,000,000 is absoultely too many. I think those who are saying that it is ok have never been a parent before.

Pass this now before it is too late
