Crashing the Biofilm Party: Understanding Dental Unit Waterline Safety
Learn the why, the how, and the what of dental unit waterline compliance. From testing to daily maintenance, this on-demand webinar course will give you the information to keep your patients and dental team members safe.
Dental unit waterlines are in the news and on OSHA inspection checklists. But the process of testing and treating waterlines is often misunderstood or even forgotten about. Science shows us that many of the aerosols in our operatories come directly from the biofilm growth in our dental unit waterlines. Just like the biofilm in the mouth, biofilm in waterlines can be stubborn to remove.
How can you keep your patients and dental team members safe? Learn the why, the how, and the what of dental unit waterline compliance. From testing to daily maintenance, this webinar-based course will turn you into a waterline warrior and motivate you to go back to the operatory and crash the biofilm party!
This on-demand webinar allows you to learn about dental unit waterlines at your own pace and on your own schedule during your six-month access period.
