Dental Water Technology

Have you ever wondered about the water we are using during your dental appointment? Your oral health and protection are important to us. That’s why we purify our dental unit water with DentaPure®.

Dental researchers and microbiologists have confirmed that dental unit waterlines can be contaminated with unacceptable levels of bacteria. By using DentaPure® water treatment cartridges on each of our dental units, you can be sure that the water we are using is safe. This advanced water treatment technology was originally developed for NASA and successfully used for over 20 years to ensure that water consumed in space was free of bacteria, viruses and other harmful organisms.
It truly is Rocket Science!

How Does it Work?

DentaPure is a cartridge that is attached to the waterlines in the dental unit. As water passes through the cartridge it releases a small amount of the germicide, iodine, into the water. The iodine kills all the harmful bacteria that are in the dental unit waterlines, delivering safe water to you during your dental procedure. The elemental iodine in DentaPure contains no allergenic proteins and is a naturally occurring element in our bodies; it is safe for everyone. You may notice a slight medicine taste during your procedure; not everyone can taste it, but if you do, know that it is DentaPure working to treat the water being used during your procedure.

With so much awareness on the environment we thought it important to share with you that DentaPure is completely safe for the environment, there are no caustic chemicals or hazardous waste associated with the use of DentaPure. Made in the USA, the depleted cartridge may be recycled.
