TDA Distributing N95s to Texas Dentists — How to Order

Last month, due to TDA’s advocacy to safely reopen dental practices on May 1, Governor Greg Abbott made available 300,000 N95 respirators, which TDA distributed to Texas dentists. Now, Governor Abbott has made an additional emergency shipment of 300,000 available. This is an extraordinary benefit to TDA members and the dental patients they safely care for.Shipments of the N95 respirators will be in allotments of 20 per package/order. This is a result of the way the manufacturer, BYD, packaged the N95 respirators for the State of Texas. 

TDA members are eligible to order one box of 20 N95 respirators while supplies last. TDA members may begin ordering immediately on Monday, June 22, 2020. There will be a nominal fee of $20.60 to cover costs associated with processing, handling, and shipping plus credit card fees. The total fee charged will not surpass the fees assumed. Non-member dentists may begin ordering at 8:00 a.m. central time on Thursday, June 25, 2020. Please be patient with the ordering process as demand will likely be high. On Monday, June 29, those who have already placed an order, will be eligible to place a second order.

Important Note: If you do not have an immediate need for respirators, please refrain from placing an order. For example, retired dentists and dentists holding a faculty license who do not deliver care in private practice.
