| FAQ - Dental Unit Waterlines - Archived Through 2012
Does OSAP have information as to which products have been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and accepted by the American Dental Association (ADA) for waterline treatment/management?
OSAP has a great deal of information on dental unit waterlines in its online Issue Focus on Dental Unit Waterlines, which includes a summary list of commercially available products for waterline treatment.
The ADA Seal of Acceptance program has an online database of ADA-accepted products.
New chemical products with germicidal claims no longer require FDA clearance to market. The Environmental Protection Agency now has responsibility for these products and is developing requirements for the registration process.
