Peace of mind that water from DUWL meets ADA and CDC quality standards
Improved infection controlled practices
There are over 3,200,000 dental unit water lines in the United States.
Microbial counts can reach ≥ 200,000 colony-forming units (CFU)/mL within 5 days after installation of new dental unit waterlines.
68% of all dentist offices have contaminated lines.
How's your Waterline Health?
Biofilm buildup, which hosts dangerous bacteria is a certainty in your dental unit waterlines. The ADA states, “The only way to know that a dental unit waterline cleaning regimen is effective is to test the water coming out of the unit.”
Comply with ADA Guidelines
The goal of ≤500 CFU/mL for dental treatment water has been recommended by both the American Dental Association (ADA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for nonsurgical dental procedures
Comply with CDC Guidelines
Infection caused by waterborne organisms from contaminated water sources and the subsequent burden of disease is not merely a problem for developing countries; it also poses a significant threat in countries with established water treatment procedures and infrastructures, especially for healthcare facilities treating immunocompromised or critically ill patients.
