Safe Water Lines: What It Takes to Be CDC-Compliant & How to Protect Your Practice
Guidance from the CDC states that dental unit waterlines require routine maintenance and regular testing to ensure compliance with the EPA standard for water quality ≤500 CFU/mL and safe patient care. New research shows that while waterline safety has become a centerpiece in dental infection control in recent years, the majority of practices are still not compliant, even after implementing a protocol.
Join Kellie Thimmes, dental water quality consultant and educator, and her team, including Mike Rust, Senior Regional Sales Manager and Kelley Birschbach, Vice President of Marketing & Sales with ProEdge, for:
– Evidence-based protocols for efficient and cost-effective waterline maintenance, treatment, and testing
– A review of the challenges related to biofilm development
– A primer on federal and state guidelines related to waterline maintenance
Ensure that you follow best practice for infection control training so you can protect your patients while operating at maximum efficiency.
