Primary Dental Care Practices

Dental Practices have a duty of care in ensuring that the water supply, storage and distribution services should comply with the best practice guidance given in HTM04-01 and ACoP L8.

Along with protecting staff and patients from potentially harmful bacteria in water systems, most Dental Practices have to think about reprocessing expensive equipment in line with HTM01-05 Decontamination in Primary Dental Care Practices.

For Dental Practices…
  • All systems must have a Risk Assessment.
  • All premises must have a written Water Management Scheme.
  • The registered manager must ensure that all recommendations and remedials of the Written Scheme and Risk Assessment are implemented
  • Water lines must be fitted with anti-retraction valves in accordance with EU regulations
  • It is mandatory to control legionella within the dental water system
