Binghamton Area Dentist Is Making Hospital Masks for Local Hospitals
In the fight against the Coronavirus many medical supplies are running low. Two of the most scarce supplies include ventilators, which a lot of companies across United States are starting to mass-produce to help the fight, and the other is the N95 hospital masks.
One local dentist is jumping in to help. According to Spectrum News, Dr. Sonny Spera and the Progressive Dental Group have been using 3D printers to create N95 capacity masks to be distributed to hospitals here in the Binghamton area.
According to the report, Progressive Dental worked with Binghamton University's biomedical department to make sure that their N95 masks function properly. These masks can be cleaned and reused which should help during the COVID-19 crisis.
Spectrum news is reporting that 12 of the N95 Masks were already produced by Progressive Dental with more on the way.
According to the Progressive Dental website, there are five locations near Binghamton including; Front Street in Binghamton, Hooper Road in Endwell, Route 11 in Kirkwood, South Broad Street in Norwich, and on Public Avenue in Montrose Pennsylvania.
