Wisconsin dentists have been donating essential personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals and urgent care facilities treating patients with COVID-19.

The Wisconsin Dental Association donated 20,000 masks, 25,000 pairs of gloves and 1,700 gowns. The PPE was to be used during its Mission of Mercy charitable clinic which had to be canceled due to the pandemic.

A separate drive collected 4,000 masks, 11,250 pairs of gloves, and disinfectant for Madison-area hospitals and urgent care facilities. Those totals do not include dentists who brought their donations directly to the facilities.

Other local dental societies and offices in Wisconsin hosted their own drives as well. The Greater Milwaukee Dental Association collected PPE  from its members and also donated supplies the association had saved from its Give Kids A Smile events, totaling 11,900 masks, 169 boxes of gloves, 140 gowns, 24 face shields and 19 tubs of disinfectant.
