Additional Source for PPE

We know that many of you are struggling to get the recommended PPE, particularly N95/KN95 masks.  The Idaho Office of Emergency Management recommends ordering masks from Pure Vita co.

We have a dedicated order process with Pure Vita Co. Time for submitting orders is very limited, if interested place your order ASAP. Pure Vita is an Idaho based company and have been serving the health care market for many years.  They are contracted with the State of Idaho and are a verified source. Masks are  produced in China and shipped to the US, have certificate of authenticity and are tested for compliance both before shipment and upon arrival in the US. Dentists orders will be bundled in with the order that the Idaho Office of Emergency Management and have confirmed the below pricing.

For NIOSH style KN95 Masks (full face seal) Pure Vita is working on an option to bundle us into the next order. They are collecting the information in their system to facilitate this process. When you are placing an order please be sure to include the number of NIOSH KN95 masks you would like. For those who only want the NIOSH style please complete the ordering process so the data is captured. You will not be billed for them until the production and shipping logistics are confirmed, at which point you will be contacted. 

Pure Vita will bill and ship to individual offices. Estimated time to deliver is 25 days from the time the order is placed. Prices excluding applicable taxes are:                

  • Disposable Level 2 - $0.62 per mask
  • Disposable Level 3  - $0.78 per mask
  • KN95 - $3.60 per mask
  • NIOSH KN95 - $6+per mask (subject to fluctuation)

Steps to place your office specific order and process payment:

  • Click this link:
  • It will take you to the ISDA Order form on the Pure Vita billing system.  They will collect your final order quantity, billing information and payment. 
  • Orders will need to be placed in increments of 200 for the Level 2 and Level 3 masks, and 50 for the KN95 mask.  This allows Pure Vita to ship for free within Idaho. 
  • At the very bottom of the order form is information re: the NIOSH style KN95 masks.  Please read it and enter your estimated need.

Please remember, we do recommend you maintain your relationship with your primary supply company, and see this as a stop gap measure during these times of critical supply constraints. We trust this process facilitates getting you the PPE that is critical to maintaining your practice, and comfort in knowing that we are working with a vendor that is supplying the State of Idaho Office of Emergency Management. 

 As always, feel free to let us know if you have questions or concerns. 208-343-7543

Annual Session 2020 Cancellation

The ISDA has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Session. While we had a strong line up of speakers and a lot of interest prior to mid-March, we are not able to hold the session on our scheduled dates in June due to state mandates on size of gatherings, nor do we anticipate that practices will have the financial capability to lose an additional two days of education this summer for the dentists and their teams.

For those who had already registered:

  • Your fees were refunded in April.
  • Sun Valley resort has refunded any deposits and cancelled any room reservations. Please feel free to call the resort directly if you did not hear from them 1-800-786-8259

Still working to get the required 30 hours of CE credit prior to September 30?

  • The Board of Dentistry does not limit the amount of online CE that can be taken to fulfill the requirement
  • Idaho rules governing CE can be found here (see pages 4-5)  
  • ADA has a rich portfolio of free CE.  There are many new classes that address critical knowledge related to treating patients in light of COVID-19, as well as other great topics! Here
  • Most Local components will resume their meetings in September – most offer education which generally carries 1 hour of CE credit.

Please let us know if you have any questions 208-343-7543
