Session Description: Suction lines are essential in dentistry. When the vacuum pump goes down or suction lines get clogged an operatory or the whole office is shut down. Since the SARS CoV 2 pandemic suction lines are being used for more than just the management of saliva and water, we are depending on them to decrease aerosols as well.  High evacuation suction is being used in all the ops now and putting a drain on vacuum pumps and suction lines.  There\'s little information out there about how to properly maintain suction lines for maximum efficiency but more importantly patient and team safety.  This course will look at what\'s lurking in our suction lines as well as how to properly use and maintain them for safety and maximum suck.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the importance of proper suction line use and maintenance
2. Define the necessary steps to properly use and maintain suction equipment
3. Identify common errors in suction line use and maintenance and how to correct them
4. Discuss products on the market that are effective for maintaining a healthy suction line protocol
