I support this petition! What is the harm in EXTRA preparedness?

I can't believe my eyes as I'm reading these comments. Especially the watchdog comment. What a coward! At least the other dentists left their names. Obviously the training that is currently in place is insufficient. Otherwise, we would not be reading news of patients dying while in a dental chair. 

Its a good idea in any profession to receive period training to keep up on the latest techniques and refresh important information. In any medical profession, it should be mandatory! 

Admittedly, most dentists probably are prepared (and obviously those dentists are all posting here against the petition), but without some sort of training mandate, how do we identify those who are not prepared?
