We are pleased to announce that Midway Dental’s KN95 masks are now EUA approved. Under the guidance of the FDA, the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) is tasked with evaluating products that may be able to quickly and effectively address a need during a health emergency.
All products submitted for EUA approval must provide a summary of the scientific evidence to support its safety and effectiveness.
IDS recognized early on that its members needed additional guidance and support during the COVID-19 pandemic. In collaboration with their partners, including Midway Dental, IDS worked tirelessly to secure the supplies and other resources dental practices needed as they resumed patient care.
As the PPE supply chain continues to be a challenge to navigate, IDS sought ways to simplify its process. Due to the urgent need for these items, IDS and Midway Dental launched a new, easy to use ordering site dedicated to PPE orders. To fulfill these orders as quickly as possible, they have been proactively working with their current suppliers and exploring other new, innovative ways to secure PPE to support the needs of their members.
Additionally, to help practices determine the amount of PPE needed, IDS created a PPE calculator, which takes into consideration a practice’s anticipated patient and staff volume.
Along with assisting practices in obtaining PPE and other supplies, IDS has implemented several other helpful tools and resources for dentists to use during this unprecedented time. This includes a COVID-19 Task Force, which is used to communicate important information and updates to members through a weekly eblast and is shared on our social media channels, including Facebook and LinkedIn. Information shared includes safety protocols and recommendations, financial support such as loan forgiveness and payroll protection information, as well as updated billing and charting best practices.
IDS began offering COVID-19 support services in March and remain committed to working with its members to implement a personalized recovery plan that takes into consideration the needs of their individual practice.
