You should have received an email from the VDA/ADA inviting dentists in Virginia to request an allotment of 25 KN95 masks by 3M. The email subject was:
“Limited PPE Courtesy of ADA and VDA”
The ADA and VDA received these masks from FEMA at no charge and therefore will be providing inventory to Virginia dentists for a fee of $26.50 that covers processing, shipping, handling and credit card fees only.
It’s important to note: Requests will be processed in the order they are received from each group of prioritized states.
Once a dentist completes their online request and pays the fee, they will receive a confirmation email and can expect to receive their allotment within 10 business days. If inventory is not available when a dentist completes the request, they will be placed on a “waiting list” (back order) and informed of such. ADA will then send their back ordered allotment if and when ADA receives more product from FEMA. If additional inventory is not received, the $26.50 fee will be reversed on their credit card.
Please note: Images in this posting are for illustration purposes only and are not representative of the PPE allotment you will receive.
If you did not receive this email and are a dentist in Virginia, please use the link below to submit your online request.
SUBMIT YOUR REQUEST
If you have any inquiries or concerns with logging in, please email the ADA Member Service Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Virginia is one of the first priority states to receive this PPE, in part because of the need masks identified through the Health Policy Institute surveys. Please continue to fill out those surveys as well as the ongoing survey on returning to work conducted by the VCU School of Dentistry so that the VDA and ADA can continue to effectively advocate on your behalf.
