Dental unit waterlines have been shown to harbor a variety of microorganisms, and the COVID-19 pandemic has made waterline safety a centerpiece of interim guidance from a variety of organizations. Guidance from the CDC, ADA, and ADHA states that dental unit waterlines should be shocked and tested. Today, only half of practices are shocking, only 10% are testing, and beyond that, over 30% of treated waterlines fail their tests.
Join Amanda Hill, RDH and Dr. Gary Severance for a review of dental unit waterline safety, current guidelines related to waterline cleanliness, and tools and products available that support cleaning and testing waterlines.
