Pa. dentist cited for unsanitary tools
YORK, Pa. - June 4, 2013 (WPVI) -- The Pennsylvania Health Department wants patients of a York County dentist to be tested for several dangerous infections.
The department says Dr. Jacqueline Marcin "did not follow appropriate procedures to properly clean, disinfect or sterilize devices at her York dental office, located at 1820 E. Market St. "
Her license was suspended April 29th, 5 days after an unannounced visit to her office.
There haven't been any infections reported, but patients are being urged to get tested for HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C if they were treated directly be Dr. Marcin. That includes fillings, tooth removals, denture fittings, and other procedures.
Those who got routine cleanings or checkups by other staff members aren't included in the testing advisory.
A special, toll-free hotline has been set up by the Department of Health for this investigation. Dr. Marcin's patients can call 1-855-265-4613 for more information.
