We have received the most wonderful gifts from our patients over the years. One of our patients made a plaque for our office that we wanted to share. We have this beautiful plaque displayed on our credenza across from the reception desk. Thank you and we are truly honored!
The inscription on the plaque says:
Dear Dr. Sternberg
Words alone cannot reveal,
The gratitude that we feel,
There is so much we would like to say,
More than words can possibly convey.
It is indeed providence that you came along,
With compassion and care amongst the throng,
For you do not just melt in the crowd,
You take an entirely different route.
A route that is paved with charity and compassion,
A wonderful and sensitive approach your fashion.
Professionalism,expertise and selflessness combined
A doctor of such caliber is hard to find.
There is no word, no sentence,and no rhyme,
To thank you for giving so much of your precious time,
Working around your schedule to suit our need,
Charity of such level is rare indeed.
And for never making us feel like we are at the receiving end,
That's charity and sensitivity,oh what a blend.
We cannot stop thanking G-d every single day,
For sending someone as special as you our way.
For donating through Donated Dental, with such a sensitive touch,
We thank you so very much.
May God open his coffers and share with grace,
And enable you to be the ultimate giver in every place.
With heartfelt appreciation and utmost gratitude,
Hamaspik of Rockland County
I want to introduce you to Anni Perkowski, one of our resident hygienists. Anni embodies the dental hygienist we employ here at the Westchester Center for Periodontal and Implant Excellence. Anni has a multitde of skills we are proud to offer our patients:
That's not all! Anni is very involved in community service. She is a volunteer coach with the Rockland County Department of Health for the fall prevention and exercise initiative for older adults. She also has volunteered with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey performing preventative oral health screenings. And last but not least, once yearly, she teaches home care at the NJ Special Olympics and Give Kids A Smile!
I want to introduce you to Rebecca, affectionately know as 'Becca.' Becca has a courageous story to share about encountering extreme poverty among children in the country of Guyana.
Guyana is a small country on the northern coast of South America bordered by Venezuela and Suriname. Guyana is an agricultural country with only 1/5 of the land usable primarily along the coast. The rest is dense forest. According to Unicef, the Gross national Income is about $1400 per person per year.
Imagine living on that! However enrollment in elementary education is quite substantial, English is their primary language.
There are about 7000 AIDS orphans in Guyana, with the total orphan population around 33,000. Guyana's total population is around 702, 000 with children under the age of 15 at 109,000.
Charitable organizations focus on construction and maintenance of medical and dental clinics, primary and secondary education and child welfare.
