Support the petition!

I urge the Virginia Dental Board to pass regulations to make it mandatory for all dentists in VA to take Medical Emergency Preparedness Continuing Education Classes in order to renew their license.  Dentists should have every possible training to help prevent any type of emergency that can occur during a dental procedure.  I am not comfortable taking my child to a dentist who doesn't feel it's necessary to have more training.  You can NEVER be too prepared for an emergency - just ask the grieving families of the many many children who have died at the dentist as a result of under-prepared dental offices.
