P028 Management of Legionella in Dental Practices During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Whilst water systems may not seem to be high on the priority list during the COVID-19 pandemic it is important for the health and safety of patients and staff, that water systems within dental practices, including dental unit water lines and associated equipment are managed safely. Where dental settings have been closed or had reduced use over the past few months because of COVID-19 it is important that water systems are managed so they do not pose a risk of infection. This recorded webinar will provide dental care providers guidance on keeping their water systems and dental unit water lines safe to reduce the risk to staff, patients and visitors.
