Sowingo, the largest cloud-based dental eCommerce and inventory management company in Canada, has partnered with the Ontario Dental Association (ODA) to offer its registered members N95 3M™ AURA™ masks at no cost provided by the Ontario Government.

The Ontario Government made a five-year commitment to purchase a significant annual quantity of domestically-produced NIOSH-certified N95 3M™ AURA™ Healthcare Particulate Respirator and Surgical Mask 1870+ model from a new 3M production line in Brockville, Ontario. With a surge in the need for N95 respirators, this supply will support Ontario public service and Ontario Healthcare sector employees.

“We are excited to offer our innovative technology and services to the Ontario Government and dental associations across Ontario to help stop the spread of COVID-19,” said Dr. Paul Bhatti, CEO, and founder of Sowingo. “Every day, dental practices across the country use Sowingo to purchase essential dental products and with our years of experience in the eCommerce sector, we fully expect the ordering process to be seamless.”

Sowingo’s mission is to transform healthcare offices by offering dental professionals simple and easy tools to purchase and manage inventory supplies. To access the free government-supplied N95 masks, ODA members must first register with Sowingo using their office information and association member number. Once an account has been created, members will be able to order masks on an ongoing basis.

“As a practicing dental surgeon, I’ve witnessed firsthand how the limited supply of N95 masks has affected the profession’s ability to keep its employees and patients protected,” said Dr. Bhatti. “With Ontario’s long-term commitment and Sowingo’s partnership with the ODA, we have the opportunity to connect practitioners to government-sponsored programs so that dental professionals can continue to provide safe oral health care to their communities.”
