Personal protective equipment (PPE) is vital to help guard doctors, nurses, emergency responders and other medical professionals against the transmission of infection. Hospitals and clinics nationwide are experiencing a shortage of PPE due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Delta Dental of Oklahoma has donated our Foundation’s inventory of PPE, typically used to conduct oral wellness screenings. Our colleagues in the Foundation gathered more than 100 impermeable gowns, 1,500 face masks, and more than 15,000 nitrile gloves and delivered them to DDOK client, OU Medicine.
Thank you to our Foundation team for organizing this delivery of valuable supplies!
