What Our Patients Are Saying
Dr. Krischke is so incredibly gentle and understanding of people’s fear of dentists and pain. I would highly recommend this office!!
I had the misfortune of breaking a tooth yesterday and was close to my dentist’s office when it happened. So, I stopped in to see if they could fit me in and they did! Truly amazing! Walked out of there with a temporary crown and will have the permanent crown in little over a week. They were awesome!
My son had his 1st visit this week. Extremely happy with the whole staff!!!
I always have a good experience here. Helen is a fantastic hygienist and Dr. Mark is first rate! They are on time and really provided great assistance with payment options.
Love the staff! So friendly & helpful. Would recommend to anybody!

I think some of the best qualities of this practice are that one, our location is very accessible to everybody, from handicap to easy in and out to welcoming as soon as you walk in. Our staff is helpful, they're friendly, they're going to do whatever they can to accommodate you, and when you get back to the hygienists or the doctors we're going to do the same. We're going to listen to each and every individual patient. We're going to see what their problem is and decide how we can take care of it.
You can expect quality care. You can expect convenience in scheduling, and quality doctors. A staff that cares about you as a person. They're so personable on a regular basis. There is oftentimes when I come back and they hug me, even though they're not the person that I'm working with that day. I just can't recommend them enough. They are incredible people.
At Van Buskirk and Krischke, their dental office and staff and their professional services meet all of your needs, whether it's just to get a cleaning. I wish I had met him maybe 15 years ago, and I wouldn't have had so many problems, and I could have had my teeth straightened and a better smile. But I look at it this way, it's better now than never.
The level of care that I have received here is nothing short of outstanding. They have every attention to detail. They ask you questions during the procedure to make sure everything is just right. They follow up with you. Just total quality care. If you want a place that treats you like family, that gives you good quality care, and is actually just outstanding in every sense of the word, this is where you need to come.
At VB&K you can expect to be treated like part of our dental family. We're going to take care of you from start to finish. We're going to make sure that your experience is up to standards and welcoming, that you're going to want to come back and then refer us to anyone else you know.
