With their chairs empty for now, Nanaimo dentists decided they have plenty of equipment they can spare in a crisis.

Dentists in the Nanaimo area donated 4,000 masks – including 800 N95 masks – as well as 25,000 disposable gloves and other needed items to health-care workers in the region this week.

Nanaimo Division of Family Practice is co-ordinating the collection of personal protective equipment locally and Beccy Robson, project manager, met Dr. Robert Wolanski, president of Nanaimo District Dental Society, at his office at Lakeside Dental Clinic on Monday to pick up the materials.
