8/20/2021 – RDH Thought Leaders – Waterlines and Suction with Amanda Hill



Learning Your Lines: Maintaining your dental unit water and suction lines for optimal safety

Speaker: Amanda Hill, RDH

There are lines coming in and out of our operatories, but do we understand how to care for them for maximum efficiency, effectiveness and safety?  Dental Unit Waterlines (DUWLs) are in the news and on OSHA inspection checklists. Science shows us that many of the aerosols we are producing come directly from the DUWLs. And our suction lines are getting a workout like never before helping us to control the aerosols to keep us safe.  In this dynamic presentation attendees will learn the why, how and what of dental water and suction lines.  This course will turn you into a Line Leader where you can head back into your op and Know Your Lines!!!


  • Understand the importance of clean dental unit waterlines
  • Define the steps needed to “pass the waterline test”–shock, test, treat, maintain
  • Formulate an effective protocol to maximize your suction lines
  • Discuss Products on the Market to set you up for success
