    The drought suffered by many parts of the UK in 1995, brought home that it is not always possible to rely on there being a constant supply of safe water. Had cuts been necessary dental practices in the affected areas would either have had to cease working or install clean water systems to protect patients from the risks of water-borne infections. Dentists should consider taking action to safeguard their ability to provide dental care during periods when their mains water supply is compromised.
