The third annual “Smiles for Our Heroes” veterans dental event took place on November 2-3, 2019 at Zufall Health in Dover, NJ. A partnership between Zufall Health, Delta Dental of New Jersey, Delta Dental of New Jersey Foundation and the New Jersey Dental Association, the two-day event accommodated 220 service appointments. Low-income veterans and their families received free cleanings and x-rays, extractions, fillings, and even dentures. Watch the video.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Antonella Maietta is the first recipient of Zufall Health’s Kathleen Nordman Dental Quality Award. This award is given to a Zufall dental provider in recognition of exemplary quality of care and patient engagement. “I experienced that family feel from my earliest days at Zufall”, said Dr. Maietta. “The camaraderie I have with my coworkers is comforting and fortifying. I appreciate how hardworking, empathetic, and responsible everyone is and I am proud to be a part of that family. That they should feel the same about me and would want me to receive this award is touching and profoundly meaningful to me especially since I could not do my job nearly as effectively without them.”
Dr. Maietta has been a valuable member of the dental team starting her career at Zufall in our Flemington Healthy Smile Center and on the mobile unit. Her dedication to mobile dentistry and the van program has helped contribute to the great success of the Delta Dental Mobile. Like many Zufall dental providers, she has forged a special bond with her patients which contributes to their high satisfaction. Congratulations, Dr. Maietta!
