June 6, 2013—The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) is advising all current and former patients of a York County dentist they might be at risk for infection after an investigation discovered the dental facility did not follow appropriate infection control procedures. DOH is recommending Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV testing for current or former patients who had dental procedures performed by Dr. Jacqueline A. Marcin, located at 1820 E. Market St. in York. Concerned patients of Dr. Marcin should contact their primary care provider for access to these tests.
Family First Health offers free walk-in HIV testing for patients and non-patients alike. Hepatitis B and C tests are offered to current Family First Health patients only.
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 or can visit the DOH website.
