What’s in your dental water?
Bacteria in dental unit waterlines is a serious problem. If your dental water does not meet the ADA guidelines and CDC recommendations for infection prevention & control, your patients are at risk. If left unaddressed, colonizing bacteria can grow to be biofilm and can result in unsafe and odor producing water.
Water quality monitoring is a critical part of any treatment plan. The CDC and ADA recommends that...
"Coolant water used in non-surgical dental procedures meet EPA regulatory standards for drinking water, which is less than or equal to 500 colony forming units of heterotrophic bacteria per milliliter of water."
Protecting dental patients and clinicians can only be assured by obtaining certified microbiological test results that proves safe & compliant dental water.
