    Dental Waterline Maintenance in the Orthodontic Practice

    Dental Waterline Maintenance in the Orthodontic Practice

    With the October 31 CDC Health Advisory Alert to the dental community on dental waterlines, orthodontic practices where reminded of the importance of best practices when it comes to dental waterline maintenance. While the alert concerned outbreaks of non-tuberculosis mycobacteria infections related to dental waterlines in pediatric dental clinics., it rightly is a wake up call to make sure your orthodontic practice is doing the right thing to protect patients and staff.

    To learn more about best practices when it comes to maintenance and testing of dental waterlines, Orthodontic Products Chief Editor Alison Werner spoke to Kellie Thimmes and Mike Rust from ProEdge Dental Water Labs. Thimmes is a senior consultant and education specialist at the company, while Rust is a regional sales manager. Both have extensive experience working with dental and orthodontic practices to help them maintain safe dental waterlines.

    In this episode, they talk about why orthodontic practices should pay attention to the CDC alert, the need for more awareness on the issue of dental waterline safety in general, and the risks to the patient, the practice, and the doctor’s license if dental waterlines are not maintained properly. As Thimmes and Rust point out, often, inspectors come to the practice to investigate a complaint unrelated to waterlines; but, once there, they’ll ask to see the practice’s latest water test results. And if those aren’t in order, the practice could have fines levied against it, while the doctor could face actions against their license.

    They then take a deep dive on best practices for maintaining dental waterlines in the orthodontic practice and explain that while this is about protecting the health and safety of the patient and practice staff, it is also about ensuring equipment, such as handpieces, aren’t needlessly damaged. Rust and Thimmes explain what it means to have a compliant dental unit waterline, needed documentation, and the three main steps to dental unit waterline maintenance: shocking, treating, and testing. They breakdown how often you should be testing, testing options, and what to use to treat your waterlines between testings. And if your practice fails a waterline test, Rust and Thimmes say don’t panic. Address the problem and reach out to the experts if you need help. OP

    AAO-Wharton & Mastering the Business of Orthodontics

    AAO-Wharton & Mastering the Business of Orthodontics

    The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) announced last month that beginning in 2023 it will open its AAO-Wharton Mastering the Business of Orthodontics (MBO) program to office managers employed by AAO member practices. The online program, launched in 2021, was created to give AAO member orthodontists formal business training to help them succeed as entrepreneurs and small business owners. Recognizing that office managers are often key to a practice’s success, the AAO is now offering the same training to office managers.

    As AAO President Normal J. Nagel, DDS, recently stated, office managers are often to “whom many practice owners entrust significant management and leadership duties.”

    The AAO-Wharton program is taught asynchronously by faculty from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania who have teamed up with expert orthodontists and orthodontic practice consultants.

    To learn more about the program in general and the inclusion of office managers, Orthodontic Products Chief Editor Alison Werner spoke to Anil J. Idiculla, DMD, a graduate of one of the first cohorts and now one of the AAO instructors with the program, and Renee Doyle, DDS, MS, an orthodontist in private practice in Illinois, who completed the program this fall.

    Idiculla not only talks about his experience as a student but also breaks down the 8-week MBO cohort program and what attendees, both orthodontists and office managers, can expect. Meanwhile, Doyle shares where she was as a small business owner before starting the program and how the program has changed her approach. She also explains why she thinks the program is ideal for office managers.

    Both AAO member doctors and their office managers can now enroll for the next program cohort, which will begin January 11, 2023. The program includes access to AAO Business Coaches who will support attendees throughout the course and will lead peer-to-peer discussions.

    Those who complete the program will earn a Wharton certificate and 18 units of CE. OP

The in-person interview, conducted at the 108th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, delves into all things enterprise imaging and why cloud-native solutions are especially beneficial.

    Particularly, Byers shares the impetus behind Change Healthcare’s introduction of Stratus Cloud PACS and the cybersecurity implications of the launch. After all, Byers maintains, hospital chief information officers lie awake at night wondering when—not if—they’re going to get hacked.
