Providing clean, safe dental water is critical to implementing and maintaining effective infection control protocols. Challenges of basic equipment design and tubing contribute to the development of biofilm in dental unit waterlines. This CE webinar will include compliance with current guidelines related to microbiological water standards and protocol recommendations for best treatment of DUWL protocols to ensure patient and clinician safety.
Upon completion of this CE webinar, the participants will be able to • Describe the causes of biofilm contamination of DUWLs • List the microorganisms found in DUWL output water and how they relate to potential transmission • Review the significant clinical studies related to DUWL • Discuss various treatment s to achieve dental unit waterline quality that will meet CDC/ADA recommendations
