Important Announcement for ISDS Members Only!
The Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS) has coordinated with our endorsed partner, IndepenDENT Dental Solutions (IDS), and Midway Dental, to develop a PPE program exclusively for ISDS members. The program helps reduce the cost of a variety of PPE items, eliminate your risk of back-orders and stock outs, as well as securing high demand items like disinfectant wipes and gloves—all from a trusted, fully-vetted source. PPE items available through the program include:
- Disinfectant Wipes
- Face Shields
- Isolation Gowns (including a limited time promotion for a FREE extraoral suction unit)
- Masks (KN95, N95, Level 1, 2, and 3 Masks)
- Gloves (via the bulk-buy program)
Because of the high-demand, rising costs and limited availability of gloves, ISDS members can participate in a bulk-buy program. The program enables dentists to secure gloves now to ensure you will have what you need in the coming months.
Orders will be accepted between 11/18-12/11/2020, and the nitrile gloves are sold in boxes of 100.The price per box will be between $10-15 each, and the final price will depend on the total volume of gloves purchased by the group. We will be placing one large order, so it is important to keep in mind that it may take to 8-10 weeks to receive your order.
PLEASE NOTE THAT BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF THIS PROGRAM, NEITHER ISDS NOR INDEPENDENT DENTAL SOLUTIONS CAN GUARANTEE A SPECIFIC BRAND. REST ASSURED, YOU WILL BE GETTING THE BEST PRODUCT THAT CAN BE OBTAINED.
Due to the unpredictable nature of the PPE supply chain for the remainder of this year and into 2021, we strongly recommend practices order and maintain a PPE inventory that will sustain your practice for a minimum of 2-3 months. To learn more about the PPE program and place an order please visit:
The Illinois State Dental Society remains committed to helping your practice navigate the challenges that have been brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. For additional information on the COVID-19 pandemic, please visit ISDS.org.
