BURST Oral Care Offers Support to Dental Professionals Facing Unique Difficulty With COVID-19
- BURST announces $20k support to Direct Relief and waiving of joining fee for ambassador community
- It also announces $5m profit-share has been paid out to-date to their ambassador community of over 25,000 dental professionals
The American Dental Association (ADA) has recommended that dentists nationwide postpone elective procedures for the next three weeks, which has led to an increased number of dental professionals out of work, or working less. BURST, an oral care subscription company, is assisting these dental professionals whose offices have either closed temporarily, or remain open but then put them at risk through close contact, potential contamination of saliva, and shortage of protective equipment during the current COVID-19 Pandemic.
The closures and reduced hours affect not only hygienists but also hourly employees at these practices, leaving a vast majority out of work, or on reduced hours. Data from the ADA suggests there are over 350,000 working dental professionals in the USA.
BURST works extremely closely with the dental community, and today announces they are waiving the $20 fee for dental professionals to join the BURST Ambassador program. The program allows working dental professionals to gain additional income through working with BURST as an ambassador, even from home, by recommending BURST products and collaborating with BURST on product innovations. BURST can reveal that as of today, a total of $5 million has been distributed to-date to over 25,000 dental professionals.
BURST has also declared they are donating a portion of sales, up to $20k, to the Direct Relief organisation in light of COVID-19. Direct Relief supports public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses in the U.S., China and globally by providing personal protective equipment and essential medical items to health workers responding to COVID-19. In the US, they’re delivering protective masks – along with exam gloves and isolation gowns – to health care organizations in areas with confirmed COVID-19 cases.
