Complimentary PPE Still Available for Pick-up
The leadership of ACDS has procured a limited supply of PPE items from Alameda County including masks, face shields, gowns and gloves. Hand sanitizer is very limited and will be provided on a first come basis.
ACDS has made arrangements to offer one more day of distribution specifically for those dentists who did not pick-up a supply kit last week. Supply kits are available to ACDS members and non-member dentists practicing in the Alameda, Emeryville, Piedmont and Oakland areas.
The distribution day will be Tuesday, June 23 from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm only.
