Dental Unit Waterlines: Dental Unit Water Line Fact Sheet #coronavirus, #mers-cov, #novel, #middle #east

#

The oral health professions have traditionally assumed responsibility for assessing and improving the quality of healthcare provided to patients. For example, today oral health workers routinely wear disposable gloves masks, protective garments, and eyewear, and sterilize instruments – all generally initiated since baby boomers first started visiting the dental offices.

Similarly, oral health staff members throughout the country should be familiar with the issue of dental unit waterline contamination and be prepared to discuss the issue with their patients. Following is the “What. Where. When. Why and How”

What – Dental unit waterline contamination consists of slime-producing bacteria, fungi and protozoans. These microorganisms colonize and replicate on the interior surfaces of waterline tubing, inevitably resulting in adherent heterogeneous microbial accumulations termed “biofilms.”

Where – Microbial biofilms are ubiquitous in nature and can be found virtually anywhere there is moisture and a suitable solid substrate for attachment. In dentistry, biofilms form on the walls of small-bore plastic tubing in dental units which deliver coolant water for high-speed dental hand-pieces, air-water syringes, and ultrasonic scalers.

When – Water coming into buildings from city water supplies or wells is not sterile and contains a number of waterborne bacteria and trace amounts of nutrients that may support the growth of bacteria. Inevitably, some bacteria attach to, and accumulate on, the inside of the lines forming a biofilm. Once formed, biofilms serve as a reservoir significantly amplifying the numbers of free-floating microorganisms in the water exiting the waterlines.

Why – The biofilm “issue” is important to understand. The presence in dental unit waterlines of clinically proven human pathogens including Pseudomonas, Legionella, and nontuberculosis Mycobacterium species supports the dental industry’s objective of improving water quality. This objective specifies the development and validation of standard protocols for the maintenance and monitoring of water delivered to patients during nonsurgical dental procedures equivalent to an existing quality assurance standard utilized in hemodialysis units.

How – The American Dental Association (ADA) has published a statement on dental unit waterlines that challenges the industry to produce systems that can reduce the level of bacteria used in dental treatment water to 200CFU/ml or fewer by the year 2000. There are several commercially available options for improving dental unit water quality including independent water reservoirs, chemical treatment regimens, daily draining and air purging regimens, and point of use filters. Preliminary data suggest that some combination of these strategies will be necessary to control biofilm formation and achieve the desired level of water quality. To date, however, there are insufficient data to establish the effectiveness of all available methods as used in the dental office. It is important to ensure that any sterile water system or device marketed to improve dental water quality has received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance. Research is currently underway to validate other proposed water treatment methods and water quality monitoring indicators.

In the interim, there are many steps oral health practitioners can take to improve the quality of dental unit water. However, please note that practitioners should always consult with manufacturer of their dental units before initiating any waterline treatment protocol.

1. Follow current OSAP, ADA, and CDC recommendations to flush lines for several minutes each morning. Flush handpieces with air/water for 20 to 30 seconds between patient appointments. Installing sterilized handpieces and sterile or disposable syringe tips after flushing will reduce cross-contamination.

2. Always obtain and follow the dental unit manufacturer’s recommendations for treating dental unit waterlines. Implementing protocols not recommended by the unit manufacturer could cause equipment damage and void warranties.

3. If recommended by the dental unit manufacturer, install and maintain antiretraction valves to prevent oral fluids from being drawn into dental waterlines.

4. Avoid heating dental unit water. While it was common to heat water to increase patient comfort, warming the water may amplify biofilm formation and select organisms pre-adapted to growth in a human host.

5. Consider using a separate water reservoir system to eliminate the inflow of municipal water into the dental unit. In addition to having better control over the quality of the source water used in patient care, it would eliminate interruptions in dental care when “boil-water” notices are issued by local health authorities. Contact the manufacturer of the dental unit for a compatible system and treatment protocols before undertaking this step.

6. Use sterile solutions for all surgical irrigations. Additionally, ensure that only heat-sterilized/sterile-disposable bulb syringes or sterile water delivery devices are employed to deliver the sterile water.

7. Educate and train oral healthcare workers on effective treatment measures to ensure compliance and minimize risks to equipment and personnel.

8. Monitor scientific and technological developments in this area to identify improved technical approaches as they become available.

9. Cooperate with the oral healthcare industry to develop and validate standard protocols for maintaining and monitoring dental unit waterlines.

10. Because insufficient data currently exist to establish the effectiveness of all available methods as used in the dental office, it is important to ensure that any sterile water system or device marketed to improve dental water quality has been cleared for market by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

11. Some mention should be made about staff compliance with whatever treatment approach is chosen by the practice. Their input as to the choice and maintenance is crucial for any success achieved.

Staff compliance with whatever water treatment approach is chosen by the dental practice is very important. Staff input as to the choice and maintenance is crucial for any success achieved.

Staff also may consider utilizing a “Message to Patients.”

Which RN program (full-time) to choose in the East Bay area

Quote from turbohound

I’m an East Bay local also looking into RN programs. I’m looking at your list as well as Ohlone and Modesto. Chabot has expanded their program to allow for ten more students at the Las Positas campus. Also, the south bay programs are accessible via the ACE train. I’m volunteering at Valleycare to get a feel for nursing. Any idea what the wages are like?

Hi Lizz and turbohound !

Thanks for your messages.

You mention Ohlone college, which I visited. It’s a beautiful campus, but a little far away for me. I don’t know Modesto. Chabot college I heard is a very good college. I don’t know what the wages are like unfortunately, but you may want to post a new thread asking that question.

I’ve just been admitted to San Francisco State University, so I’ve decided that’s where I’m going to go. I’m excited! I was not sure whether to get a BSN or an ADN, because I’m already 46; but I think SFSU is a very attractive place, although a little far away. CAL-State Hayward is closer to my home, but they’re only going to give their answers in mid-June or July, and students at my colleges (Peralta) mentioned that SFSU is a very neat place and that this is what I should choose.

I was thinking earlier that CAL-State Hayward might be better, because they have a higher passing rate at the NCLEX exam, but someone told me that the reason is that they require their students to have an exam at their university first, before trying the Board State exam. I think CAL-State Hayward is a very good university nevertheless. Contra Costa College seems to be pretty high on the list of success at NCLEX exam too. They did not admit me, because they had some prerequisites I did not meet like two courses in physical education and child development. I was admitted at Merritt college, but heard that their present ADN program is too tough. A student told me that only 17 students are now left in the second year of their ADN program.

Thanks for responding

I got my MBA at Hayward, so I don’t want to do another long program. I’m looking at ADN programs due to my age (38). That’s so cool that you’ve been accepted. I’m so jealous. Maybe I’ll see you at Valleycare in Livermore sometime.

An MBA, that’s pretty good! If I had one, I think I would go for the nurse practitioner program directly, which is two years like the ADN program. Because you already have a masters degree, I am afraid that SFSU or CAL-State Hayward (?) would not let you apply for another masters degree in nursing. You could always ask if you thought that was a good idea for you. You could apply to Samuel Merritt though. They are expensive, but I was told they’re a very good school, and Kaiser and West Catholic Hospital (I’m not sure what the name is) would reimburse students for their loans.

If you’re unsure, you could apply for both ADN and Master programs (have you thought of physician’s assistant at Stanford/Foothill college, and Samuel Merritt). It’s also a 2 years program.

I forgot to mention in my previous e-mail that Chabot college (ADN program) selects students through a lottery at the end of April (need to apply in January).

All the best to you in your endeavors!

An MBA is not a Master’s degree in nursing, so you would be able to get an MSN. They are not related to each other in any way. Hope that this helps.

Quote from chad75

sorry about resurecting this old thread but i’m considering moving to the sf area, i am an lpn wanting to fastrack. are there long waiting list for the various fastrack or just general asn/adn programs in sf?

the next rn adn program that starts the soonest for which you could apply is at the city college in san francisco. www.ccsf.edu/
you have to go there on the first day that you are allowed to apply (sometimes in august) – you could go now and get all the info. their 2 year program starts in january 2005. you most likely won’t be able to get any info by phone or to register for nursing by mail either.

for other adn programs, i heard that college of marin is good www.marin .cc.ca.us/
. as well as chabot college in hayward chabot web.clpccd.cc.ca.us/
chabot does a lottery however to select qualified applicants, and they rejected me, because i was not a in-district resident (i think they made a mistake); but they accepted someone else who leaves in alameda.

and contra costa college in san pablo www.contracosta .cc.ca.us

from all the things i heard, and their results at the nclex exams, i do not recommend merritt college in oakland (not to confuse with samuel merritt in oakland, which is a good program).

these may not be the fastest program in your situation, because you say you’re already an lpn; so i don’t know what programs are available in your situation. i believe that for bachelor degrees in nursing, there are faster programs for lpn, so it may be worth it to apply to bachelor programs.

samuel merritt in oakland www.samuelmerritt .edu may still accept applications for the fall 2004, and may have a special program for lpn, i don’t know. samuel merritt is associated with holy names college in oakland, or st mary’s college in moraga where you’d have to take some general education classes (you don’t have to be catholic.) they’re expensive, but good, and i heard that several employers, incl. kaiser and a hospital with a catholic name (catholic west or something like that) offer to reimburse education loans when they hire.

you may also want to check what kind of programs ucsf in san francisco has for lpns at nurseweb.ucsf .edu they’re also expensive, but apparently very good.

the other bachelor in nursing programs that i know are at san francisco state university, where i have been accepted. www.sfsu.edu
and csu hayward www.csuhayward.edu (there is a pre-entrance nln exam to take).

when you apply, make sure to fill out two applications one for the school, and one for the nursing program.

if anyone studied nursing at hayward university or san francisco state university, i’d be interested to know if they liked it or not, and why.

for more info on nursing programs in california, you can go to:
