FORWARD SCIENCE REVEALS PPE LINEUP TO SUPPORT DENTAL PROVIDERS RETURNING TO WORK
(Houston, TX) (May 2020) Forward Science, a Houston based and locally operated MedTech company, is launching a line of personal protective equipment (PPE) after the successful launch of hand sanitizer and surface disinfectant earlier this year. This product lineup is designed to meet the needs of dental professionals re-opening during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In response to the events surrounding COVID-19, the Forward Science team has pivoted to launch a line of PPE to meet the need of healthcare professionals, particularly in the dental space. Forward Science’s product lineup typically includes medical devices and pharmaceutical products focused on oral healthcare. Creating innovative products and quality resources for the dental space has been the top priority at Forward Science since their inception in 2012. Forward Science’s typical partners, dentists, hygienists and dental assistants are commonly ranked as some of the most at-risk professionals for contracting COVID-19, so the Forward Science team knew utilizing their FDA regulated facility to supply a PPE line was essential in protecting workers across the oral healthcare industry.
“Early on, when the need for sanitizers arose, we paused manufacturing on our current products and immediately began providing hand sanitizer and surface cleaner for our community and healthcare workers,” said Robert Whitman, CEO of Forward Science. “Now that dental offices, particularly our ID For Life members, are beginning to re-open their dental practices, it is our job to continue providing resources for the dental community by stepping up to offer proper PPE for these offices. As numerous other businesses have also stepped up to fill this void, we operate out of an FDA registered facility with experience in the dental healthcare space which ensures that our PPE products will have exceptional quality and provide the best standard of care for our partner clinicians on the front line.”
Forward Science’s PPE line will including masks, touchless infrared thermometers, gloves, disposable gowns, hand sanitizer and surface disinfectant. Alongside the line, communication resources, social media content and signage will be offered to interested offices, as well as ID For Life members. These resources will improve the dental practice’s communication with patients during an unprecedented time. “Dental care is a critical part of our healthcare system, but it's becoming an increasingly dangerous job,” says Forward Science’s Director of Training and Education, Ellen Myers. “We want to be sure clinicians have every resource to ensure they, as well as their patients, remain safe and healthy.”
