Vietnamese: Chúng tôi sẽ thực hiện các bước cần thiết để cung cấp dịch vụ hỗ trợ ngôn ngữ miễn phí cho những người giao tiếp bằng những ngôn ngữ mà chúng tôi có thể nghe thấy tại phòng khám của mình và cho những người không có đủ trình độ tiếng Anh để thảo luận về dịch vụ chăm sóc nha khoa mà chúng tôi đang cung cấp. Albanian: Do të marrim hapa të arsyeshëm për të ofruar shërbime falas për asistencë gjuhësore për njerëzit që flasin gjuhë që ka të ngjarë të dëgjojmë në punën tone dhe që nuk flasin anglisht aq mire sa të flasin me ne për kujdesin dentar që ofrojmë.

Polish: Będziemy podejmować stosowne kroki, by zapewnić bezpłatne usługi wsparcia językowego dla ludzi, którzy rozmawiają językami, które my chcielibyśmy słyszeć w naszym gabinecie i dla tych, którzy nie mówią po angielsku na tyle dobrze, aby rozmawiać z nami o opiece stomatologicznej, którą zapewniamy.

German: Wir werden angemessene Schritte unternehmen, um denen eine gebührenfreie Sprachunterstützung zu bieten, die Sprachen sprechen, die wir möglicherweise in unserer Praxis hören, die aber kein Englisch sprechen, das gut genug ist, um mit uns über die Zahnpflege zu sprechen, die wir anbieten.

Serbo-Croatian: Предузећемо разумне кораке да обезбедимо бесплатну преводилачку помоћ за особе које говоре језике са којима се током рада чешће сусрећемо, а који не говоре енглески довољно добро да би могли да разговарају са нама о стоматолошкој услузи коју пружамо.

Tagalog: Gagawin namin ang mga makatwirang hakbang para maibigay namin ng walang bayad ang mga tulong na serbisyo sa wika para sa mga taong nagsasalita ng mga wikang karaniwan naming naririnig sa aming pagsasagawa at sa mga hindi bihasa sa pagsasalita ng Ingles na sasangguni sa amin tungkol sa pangangalaga ng ngipin na ibinibigay namin.
