FERGUS FALLS, Minnesota--DentaPure has announced that, as of April 27, its products are United States Environmental Protection Agency registered antimicrobial waterline purifiers.
DentaPure models DP-365, DP-90, DP-1, and the Waterwise Purifier are now fully compliant USFDA accepted and USEPA registered waterline antimicrobial products for systems using bottled water as well as those using normal municipal water connections.
The DentaPure DP-365 and DentaPure DP-90 are the only municipal continuous use dental waterline antimicrobials registered with the USEPA.
The introduction of the DentaPure DP-365 and DP-90 as EPA registered antimicrobials allows dentists using the predominant type of water delivery system in the United States to provide water meeting CDC water quality recommendations without the need for bottles, cleaners, and testing programs, which are costly and highly labor intensive.
Barry Hammarback, president and CEO of MRLB International, Inc. said, "The registration of the DentaPure DP-365 and DentaPure DP-90 gives those dentists who don't want to be involved in the complicated use of bottled water systems an excellent alternative. On an institutional scale, at 300 operatories, the DentaPure DP-365 antimicrobial water system has been demonstrated to save more than $250,000 per year for the institution."
Cost savings result from eliminating the need to incur capital expenditures for changes to systems, such as adding bottles, as well as from eliminating labor and monitoring requirements needed to maintain high quality dental unit water.
Ongoing registration is expected for all of the states, including California, within the next three months. The DentaPure line of antimicrobial dental water unit devices is available through dental dealers. Special rates and packaging are available for government installations, schools, and institutions.
