First and foremost, we want to thank each and every one of you. Your commitment makes all the difference during the current pandemic. Managing added family responsibilities, navigating uncertain economic times, returning to work, whether it is your familiar home office, a new home office, or a temporary assignment, suddenly becomes different and uncharted, leading to feelings of stress or anxiousness.
We want to reassure you, our San Diego Dental Personnel Service Team commitment, is to provide you with the most informed and safest employment referrals. This is our highest priority. San Diego Dental Personnel Service shares a unique and special responsibility with our temporary work force and their families. We advocate for your individual safety, your coworkers and that of your patients. We verify PPE, screenings and procedures for each and every office. We are committed to keeping you, the front line workers, safe.
Together, we will share positivity and successes.
Together, we are a safer dental community providing essential services.
Together, we are stronger and a part of the solution.
Here at SDDPS, we never stopped making employment referrals. Patients still had toothaches, accidents happened and surgeries were still necessary. Many regular staff members were unable to provide assistance to their home offices. We thank our dedicated and committed front line workers for stepping up and providing necessary emergency services.
The pandemic has posed unprecedented personal and professional challenges in addition to unique ethical questions. We recognize these difficulties and are adapting, along with you, to this new and evolving normal. We hold tight to our values and ethics during this crises, always striving to exceed expectations.
Every day I am inspired and encouraged by our dental community. Your devotion to working safely and stopping the spread of the virus is key to moving forward. As many local dental offices are safely resuming routine and elective procedures, we would like to remind you, the San Diego Dental Personnel Service Team dedication is steadfast and consistent.
We will get through this.
Safely and Together.
