FEEL SECURE KNOWING YOUR WATER IS SAFE
Too Many Offices Are at Risk
The majority of dental practices do not test their waterlines regularly like the ADA & CDC recommend. Another 1/3 of those who do test still fail to meet the 500 CFU/mL guideline. Why? Microbials don’t give up easily, and finding the right solution for each office can be tricky because some products simply don’t work very well.
- Passed Tests (<500 CFU/ml)
- Failed Tests (>500 CFU/ml)
That’s too many patients exposed – which is why ProEdge tests not only provide you accurate results so you know where you stand, but our free consultations with water experts will help you find the right solution and achieve safe water if you do not pass your water test.
COMPLIANCE WITH CDC GUIDELINES
The CDC recommends dental practices ensure the use of water that meets environmental protection agency regulatory standards for drinking water (≤500 colony forming units (CFU)/mL of heterotrophic water bacteria) for non-surgical dental treatment output water.
Both the CDC & ADA recommend regular testing as the only way to know your water meets those requirements.
The Standard of Care:
All Dental settings should:
- Use water that meets the 500CFU/mL standard for routine procedures
- Treat Dental Unit Water Lines (using distilled or untreated water is insufficient)
- Monitor frequently per manufacturer’s recommendations
- Use sterile water or saline for surgery
The ADA guidelines state: “Clinical monitoring of water quality ensure[s] that procedures are correctly performed. Dentists should consult with the manufacturer of their dental unit or water delivery system to determine the recommended frequency of monitoring.”
