When someone walks in the door that hasn't been here before, the first thing they're going to see is our front desk staff and they're going to be smiling and they're going to ask you the right questions and explain to you what you need to get healthy. In the operatory, when you come and sit down with me, I'm going to explain it too, but they can explain the importance of X-rays in order to prevent dental decay and other things. It's important to mention that we do, on every patient when they come for prophylaxis, which is a cleaning, we do an oral cancer screen, which is very important. When you do an oral cancer screen, you take a piece of gauze, you grab someone's tongue and tug on it, look underneath, look at the sides, look at the sides of their mouth. You palpate their lymph nodes, and all those things, and you'd be surprised how many people come in here and I do that, and they don't know what I'm doing. But I always say, 'This is a test you really want to pass is the oral cancer screen.' If you have cavities, if you have teeth that need to be pulled, those are problems that we can surmount, but the test that you really want to pass is that oral cancer screen we do on every patient. You can be confident when you come here that we are providing the standard of care. The standard of care is something that's written down that says this is what you need to do in order to treat your patients right, is to provide these services. And sometimes, some of those services get skipped, but not here. I mean, we are very conscious of what the standard of care is and the problem is that sometimes patients come in and they don't want the standard of care, they want something that's a little less, and I have to explain to them that we can't do it that way.

Highest recommendation to Dr. Van Buskirk & everyone at Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS Dental. As we come to the close of 2017, many of us reflect on the blessings we have received this year. How grateful I am that I can cite my experience with Dr. Van Buskirk and his entire staff as among my blessings. From my very first visit (many years ago) at the office, I was always made to feel welcome and comfortable, both by the friendly competence of the staff and the pleasant environment of the office itself. I have been a patient of Dr. Van Buskirk and Helen, as my hygienist, for many years. Helen is the most professional, kindest, and knowledgeable of any I’ve ever seen. The highest recommendations to Dr. Mark, Helen, and the entire staff.
