Dental Unit Waterline

Bacterial infections associated with dental procedures are an unfortunate reality in today’s society. Every couple months a story comes out about a patient becoming sick or experiencing a life-threatening infection related to a dental appointment.

These episodes are all centered around unsanitary waterlines and contaminated water within the dental units. Contaminated water has caused the CDC to set strict guidelines and standards for how to clean and maintain dental waterlines much like the standards used for drinking water.

Our office is proud to say that we exceed the standards set by the CDC for water safety by implementing The Sterisil Straw V2 in all of our dental units. For more information on water safety please visit the websites below.
