Previously, Governor Greg Abbott made available 300,000 N95 respirators for TDA to distribute to Texas dentists. Now, Governor Abbott made an additional emergency shipment of 300,000 available. Shipments of the N95 respirators will be in allotments of 20 per package/order. This is a result of the way the manufacturer, BYD, packaged the N95 respirators for the State of Texas.

All Texas dentists may begin ordering at 8:00 a.m. central time on Thursday, June 25, 2020. There is a nominal fee of $20.60 to cover costs associated with processing, handling, and shipping plus credit card fees. The total fee charged will not surpass the fees assumed.

Please be patient with the ordering process as demand will likely be high. On Monday, June 29, those who have already placed an order, will be eligible to place a second order.

Important Note: If you do not have an immediate need for respirators, please refrain from placing an order. For example, retired dentists and dentists holding a faculty license who do not deliver care in private practice.

TDA is grateful for the exceptional support from Governor Greg Abbott, his Strike Force Team to Open Texas, and the Texas Division of Emergency Management. The partnership between the TDA and these state leaders makes this effort—and many more—possible.
