The Kathleen Nordman Dental Quality Award’s First Recipient is Dr. Antonella Maietta

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!

Vision to Learn Van Provides Free Vision Screening and Eyeglasses to Zufall Pediatric Patients

Just in time for back-to-school, the Vision to Learn Vision Van visited Zufall Health to provide free vision screening and free eyeglasses to Zufall pediatric patients aged 4 to 18. During the two-day event, 71 youngsters had their vision checked and 48 of them will receive glasses in about a week. For many families served by Zufall, affording eye care and glasses is financially out of reach. Nationally, more than 2 million children do not have the glasses they need to see the blackboard, participate in class, or read a book. Giving our patients the gift of sight and a chance to do better in school was made possible by the support of the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved and Vision to Learn.
