How else can our practice help you to meet your goals?   
  • Vizilite Plus Cancer Screening - In addition to a traditional screening, the ViziLite Plus exam can help your dentist or hygienist identify abnormal tissue, that might develop into oral cancer.
  • Digital X-Rays - We have modernized our dental X-Rays so that they are now available for review in a digital computer format.  Imagine how Digital X-Rays help the dentist to clearly determine the condition inside your mouth while archiving valuable records in a HIPPA compliant database for instant access. 
  • Computerized Operatories - Please ask your hygienist or Dr. Strum, and we will gladly show you educational online videos to update your knowledge and familiarize you with procedures done in the office.  Patient education assists Dr. Strum in helping the patient to acquire the facts necessary to complete a Treatment Plan unique to your situation.  Understand the process of maintaining your optimum dental health and obtaining the finest cosmetic dentistry available today.  Watch as we chart your mouth using the latest dental equipment in our office. 
  • Value Added Coupons - The office regularly offers special coupons for cosmetic procedures such as teeth bleaching and other enhancements usually not covered by insurance plans.  If you would like to improve your smile and have no insurance to cover a procedure, we may have a special coupon to reduce your cost.  Ask us about our seasonal special coupons and check the counter upon arrival.  Coupons are inserted in the newsletter which can also be accessed on the website.
  • Patient Referral Rewards- The office routinely posts thank-yous to patients who recommend our office to their family and friends.  We also send welcome letters to our new patients.  The goal is to create an office where our patients will want to return again and again.  In a small way, we try to make our thanks even more concrete by offering rewards to patients.  Sometimes we surprise you with a little appreciation gift on your way out. Now and then, we mail out certificates to patients whose efforts in promoting the practice result in extra business in the office.  These certificates help patients to reduce their costs for those little added extras that everyone wants but sometimes cannot afford.  Ask the front desk receptionists about how to receive a referral certificate and how it works during your next visit.

MORE ABOUT US 
                                                                                                  

Dr. Strum's favorite saying is to "Save Your Teeth" by prevention first and intervention next. Our job is to review your dental health and medical history, listen to you carefully for clues, questions and concerns, ask skilled questions, offer information, provide assessment, deliver quality treatment, review and revise your treatment plan as needed, remind you of your next scheduled appointments, and see to it that you are given options for improving and optimizing your oral health.

We enjoy keeping you abreast of the latest information related to healthy dental hygiene. To keep you smiling, we have instituted a Quality Control Survey to ensure that each patient is assured of a pleasant, courteous, safe, up-to-date treatment experience in the office.

This month, look for your name on the Referrals Recognition Board as you sign in for your next dental check-up, hygiene, crown and bridge, bleaching, DENTAL IMPLANT, back-to-school or TMJ wellness visit. It is our way of saying "thank you" for your vote of confidence and for recognizing that our patients ARE the vital force behind the practice!

We know that visiting the dentist, opening your mouth and saying "AAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!" is not always your favorite activity. With that in mind, we will inspire you with patient education, dental advice, an occasional joke and even some hand holding if you need it!

Look for our updates on patient care and progress in the dental field by visiting our site often.


Please feel free to ask us your questions and to make suggestions. We want Dr. Strum's office to be your family's choice to meet all of your dental needs!

 
Dental Tip:

Are You Anxious?  Call Your Dentist Now!

Some people are anxious about the dentist and they do not call for an appointment.  But some people are just anxious!

Here are two reasons why you should make an appointment with Dr. Strum.
(Don't be anxious!):

  1. Anxiety raises your risk of canker sores
  2. Antianxiety meds may leave you vunerable to tooth and gum infections
