We started this week with positive news from California and the CDA outlining steps to re-open the state and our dental offices. While there is still a ways to go, this information sheds a light on what we can all to do help the process.
Many of us have applied for the PPP and EIDL loans as well as other funding. As a Society, we think it would be helpful to find out how many have applied and who received funding. All of the information is confidential, we are simply looking to find out how the Federal funds have been distributed. Here is a link to a survey where you can answer a few short questions: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Y3759WM
While we all have a little extra time on our hands, please consider getting more involved with WLADS. Later in the year, we will hold our annual elections. The current list of officers and committees can be found here. If you would like to learn more about potential openings or are interested in joining the board of directors or a committee, please let us know.
Know that your WLADS board and staff are doing their best to provide you with information via e-blasts and social media posts as well as links to pertinent sites and webinars to help you during this period. If you have questions or need anything, please let us know.
Flatten the curve and just know that we will all get through this together.
