WSDA is excited to announce that we have secured 340,000 NIOSH-approved N95 masks and 560,000 surgical masks for Washington dentists.
WSDA — along with assistance from the ADA and Delta Dental of Washington — has continued to work on securing critical PPE for dentists. WSDA is excited to announce that we have secured 340,000 NIOSH-approved N95 masks and 560,000 surgical masks from the Washington State Emergency Management Division to be shipped directly to dentists by The Dentists Supply Company (TDSC).
What you need to know:
- One free PPE kit is available to each actively practicing licensed Washington dentist. The kit contains:
- Mask orders will be fulfilled and shipped directly to dentists by TDSC. The masks themselves are being offered at no cost, but there will be a $10 shipping and handling cost.
- You must place an order through TDSC to receive your masks. To ensure the masks are being distributed only to licensed dentists within the state (regardless of WSDA membership status), dentists will need to have a FREE TDSC.com account and upload proof of licensure to place an order.

- For fastest processing time, please place a separate order for any other products you may need.
