PPE Equipment

Good morning, and welcome to the Monday Morning Minute. I’m Fitz, and I’m here at a Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.® Headquarters in Buffalo, New York. Dr. Shatkin and I were talking, and we feel that it’s important to let everyone know what Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.® Is doing with PPE equipment in this time. So what we’ve done, we have purchased a mask making machine because we want to have N 95 masks that are manufactured in the United States and in Buffalo more specifically.

So we’re going to be manufacturing the N 95 mask. The machine is on its way, and we will be producing these very, very shortly. We hope to have production going by mid to late June. So please call our sales reps today and put your preorders in. It’s going to be a wonderful mask, and we’re very, very excited about it.

So we’ve been selling the KN 95 masks for about a month and a half to two months now. And the reason that we brought these into the country is because we wanted our dentist to use something to put over their face and when they went to see patients. So these masks are coming down in price. We were selling them for $8. Now they were down to six, and now we’re selling them for $4.75 a piece.

So if you need the KN 95 mask, they work real well. And if you wanted to put a level one or a level two or three mask over this for extra assurance, you most certainly can. Their ear loops, they have a nice nose strap on it that holds it down, but it’s a very good mask. It’s a five ply mask, and the reason they call it can 95 is because that’s the type of mask that they use in China, and this is coming from China, oddly enough. So the prices come down to $4.75.

If you need any, they come in a box of 20 call today, and we will get them for you. Another product that we’re very, very excited about here at Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.®, and it is selling extremely well for us in the dental offices is the Austin Air HealthMate Plus. The HealthMate Plus is made about 15 minutes from where I’m standing right now in Buffalo, and we’re extremely excited about that. We tried many different air purification companies to find a unit to sell, and every single one of these said we wanted to see it for a month or so. We called Austin Eric.

They have these available to all of our doctors. If you order it today, it will ship in two days, and it has a medical grade HEPA filter that does not need to be changed for five years. No maintenance on this machine. You set it in in your the corner of one of your rooms, and it does a wonderful job purifying the air. It removes 99.7% of all particles larger than zero three microns, and 95% of all particles larger than zero one microns.

The COVID virus is zero twelveteen microns. So this machine can eliminate that. And it’s very, very good to have. I mean, we don’t like to talk square footage because the dental offices are set up so differently, but it’s about 500 to 700 sqft that it’ll cover. We’ve had one running in Dr.

Shatkin’s office and across the street at Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.® It does such a wonderful job clarifying the air and making it easier to breathe. I was talking to Dr. Petrosky during the week. He told me that he saw sunlight coming through his window in southern New Jersey at the dental office.

And he has purchased three of these well, actually now four. But he purchased four of the HealthMate Plus machines and the exact same spot where he would see dust particles flying through the air on a bright, sunny day through the office window. Absolutely nothing. And we’re very, very impressed with Austin air. If you need to clear the air in your dental office, which we highly recommend at this point, we sell it for $715.

It comes in four different colors. It comes in white, sandstone, black and midnight blue. So if you’re interested in air purification, call us today at 1884 Shatkin and we will get you all set up. Lastly, I’d like to talk to you about the Shatkin EOS System, the external oral suction machine that we will be distributing in late June. The price of this machine is 1995, but it’s a great way to eliminate droplets and aerosols that are created in the dental office.

It sits about six inches from the patient’s face and vacuum sucks all the aerosols into this machine down into the medical grade HEPA filter in an attempt to keep your office as pure as possible. Hence the name of our new company at Check in First Pure Environments. This EOS is a very good fit. So if you need more information on how the EOS system works, please call us today at 1884 Shatkin and speak with either Kevin, Charles, Nick or myself.

We would also like to extend a thank you to all the participants, all the attendees that came to our webinar last Friday. It was absolutely awesome. We had over 250 doctors and students from all over the country attend our webinar. And I’ll tell you, we had a wonderful, wonderful meeting. I hope it was very educational for everyone.
