Do You Have Other Plans?
If you are not able to volunteer at the Mission of Mercy in July, you can still help!
We anticipate a shortage of local anesthetic due to changes requiring a DEA number for anesthetic purchases. This keeps the dental supply companies from donating as in previous years.
Our specific need is for Lidocaine, Bupivacaine/Marcaine, Articaine/Septocaine and Carbocaine/Mepivicaine, but we will accept other local anesthetics too. (Please don’t dontate anesthetics with past expiration dates.)
The ISDS Foundation is collecting boxes of anesthetic at the upcoming Capital Conference (Wednesday, April 18) at the Wyndham City Centre in Springfield. If you plan to attend, bring a box or two with you, and drop them off at the ISDS Foundation Table in the Exhibit Area.
If you want to donate, but won’t be at the Capital Conference, please contact Sarah Jensen. She can make arrangements with you for a pick-up of the anesthetic.
Thank you for your help and support of the 2018 Mission of Mercy!
