The Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) is a growing community of clinicians, educators, researchers, and industry representatives who advocate for safe and infection-free delivery of oral healthcare.
Shocking your waterlines enables continuous treatment products to work most effectively. Shock at least every 90 days for best results.
Continuous waterline treatments are specially formulated to inhibit re-growth of bacteria. Follow each products instruction carefully to ensure proper use.
Testing and monitoring of your waterline safety is the only way to ensure that you are meeting the EPA standard for safety. Test at least quarterly/every 90 days.
