We have 10 children, so bringing all of them at once is too much for me to handle, though they are perfectly capable of doing that. I will schedule five of us at a time and we'll bring five kids in. My kids fight over who gets to go first, and they all want their turn. They come in and the dentists all treat them like they are special kings and queens, and they all look forward to their appointments.
I've had children that have had fillings. I've had children that have had braces. I've had a daughter that has had to have a crown. I've had a kid that has expanders, and Dr. Krischke and Van Buskirk can handle all of that. I don't have to go anywhere special. I don't have to go to an additional orthodontist or anything like that. They do all of it here, and it's great that my kids are comfortable here with all the people.
In general, I think it's a great practice across the board. I don't know that they do anything out of the ordinary, but what they do is special in the way they address their patients. They treat us like people and they're not condescending at all. They make sure we understand what they're doing, and they'll even explain to my kids what they're doing as they do each step. I try to persuade my children to shadow Dr. Krischke and become the next dentist like he is, but they love coming here and so do we. They treat us like family, and we can't say enough good things about them. I would recommend them to anyone.

I think the definition of a family dental practice is treating the whole family. I also think it means that you have to treat the people like family. So, you're going to want to see them back. You're going to want to see them regularly. You're going to want to get to know them. You're going to want to get to know what their problems are so that when they call we can pretty much tell you what's going on right away. And that means from the kids all the way up through the mom and dad and the grandparents. We want to see everybody.
We understand that coming to the dentist can be a scary proposition, especially in children. So, we try to make it as comfortable as we can from the very beginning. We try to put ourselves into the position of that scared child, and talk to them, and find out what they're feeling, and try to put to rest some of those fears. Make them comfortable, make that treatment something that they're not going to be scared of anymore.
So, if you would like to become part of our dental family, we welcome everybody. We would love to see you come on in and give us a try.
