Question:
How do I know if the water from my dental unit meets the standard for drinking water as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention?

Answer:
The quality of water delivered by dental units will not meet the standard without regular maintenance. An appropriate waterline cleaning regimen should be implemented. The only way to know that a dental unit waterline cleaning regimen is effective is to test the water coming out of the unit. Dental unit water testing products and services are used to monitor the dental unit water quality. Visit ADA.org for information on dental unit waterline cleaning and maintenance.
