Bulbs may seem insignificant in the scheme of things but you realize how important they are when a bulb goes out and you have an operatory that is out of commission. Bulbs are used in your operating lights, for your fiber optic handpieces, in x-ray viewers, your curing lights, and a host of other dental equipment. Suddenly, they don’t seem so insignificant.
Here are a few tips for your practice, so you will always be able to “see the light!"
If you are having difficulty figuring out which bulb you need to replace, referring to these codes on the old bulb will assist you in finding the correct match for the bulb you need. American Dental includes the ANSI code in our catalog and in our online product descriptions. We can also cross-reference bulbs using the ANSI code.
As always, feel free to contact us at 1-800-331-7993 with any questions regarding bulbs or you can even hit us up on our live chat system by clicking on the "Live Chat" icon at the top of the page and we will be more than happy to help.

Water is a crucial resource to dentistry. As March comes to an end and World Water Day (March 22nd) has been celebrated, we wanted to give you some dental practice tips for maintaing your self-contained water systems, as well as introduce you to a product to assist in making sure your water is clean for your patients.
We are now offering the whole DentaPure line to customers. Some of these products have an in-line filter that connects into your water bottles. They will safely & continuously release iodine into your water lines to help provide clean, safe dental water and eliminate using waterline cleaners or other chemicals in your waterlines. The ADA helps explain more about maintaining your dental unit waterlines further here.
If you need help installing a self-contained water system, we created a video back in Practice Tips #55 to assist you in this set-up.
The DentaPure cartridges (#49-300 & #49-301) are designed to be used only in water bottle systems. Make sure to store them at room temperature, out of the sunlight, & do not use heated water as it will promote the growth of bacteria. Wear gloves & safety glasses when installing.
Before beginning the installation and to obtain maximum bacterial reduction, dental unit waterlines should be cleaned with an approved cleaner before installation (#30-627 or #49-21).
Keep in mind these guidelines:
