We like to think we're involved in the community. We try to sponsor as many of the high school, elementary programs in the area. We've sponsored the team sports at the high school. We've sponsored team sports at all the other elementary level and middle school levels. Every February for Dental Health Month, we go out to the schools and teach the kids how to brush. Why we should brush. What happens if we don't and I think last year we probably saw about 700 different students at probably four or five different schools. In addition to that, we just are always constantly just trying to be involved in and support the community. When the community hears Van Buskirk and Krischke, I want them to think that, ‘Hey, that's ... I can go there. I know those guys. I've heard about them. They're good. They're gonna treat me right. They're gonna treat me fair. And once I get there, I'm gonna want to stay there because I'm comfortable being there.’
Dr. Mark Van Buskirk has been practicing dentistry in Crown Point, IN since 1982. The Hammond, IN native has lived in northwest Indiana his whole life, other than attending dental school at Indiana University in the central part of the state. So it’s no wonder that he enjoys supporting his local community.
One way he does so is by sponsoring an annual classic car show at the Lake County Fair. Dr. Van Buskirk also provides dentistry services for drivers at the US41 Motorplex in nearby Morocco, IN. He and Dr. Michael Krischke also visit local schools to educate children about oral health during National Children’s Dental Health Month, sponsor events at local high schools, and attend community health fairs.
