Biofilm is everywhere including the tubes connecting instrumentation such as high-speed handpieces, air/water syringes and ultrasonic scalers with a water supply and more. We don’t want to expose older, immunocompromised or any patient to unnecessary risk. Water of optimal microbiologic quality is possible when dental unit waterlines are maintained regularly. Strict adherence to maintenance protocols is necessary; simply treating waterlines may not be sufficient to ensure water quality.
Upon completion of this evidence-based clinical CE webinar, the participant will:
• Know the CDC and EPA standards for dental unit waterline systems.
• Identify a process that fits the needs and is compatible with the practice dental units.
• Create a protocol that includes regular monitoring.
• Determine if the methods being utilized are successful
