Choosing A Dentist Checklist 2017-07-28T07:40:11+00:00

Choosing a dentist is a big decision that can last a lifetime if it is done correctly.  It is hard to know exactly what questions to ask or what you need to know to make that decision.  At Keith Shrum Dentistry we have created a checklist to help you do just that.  It is called our “Choosing A Dentist Checklist”.  This checklist will help you to compare any dental office before you make that first appointment.

You should be able to work your dental appointment around your schedule, not theirs. We are open when you need us, including early mornings and evenings.

Your dentist should use the latest technology and techniques to ensure your visit is as pain free as possible.

They should be able to bill your insurance company directly & offer payment plans for amounts not covered by insurance.

They should have alternate financing options. Keith Shrum Dentistry has several different interest free payment plans to make it easier for you to get your dental work done when you need it.

You shouldn’t have to make an appointment or go in for a consultation just to find out how they handle different procedures.
At Keith Shrum Dentistry we have numerous pamphlets, handbooks, reports and brochures so you know exactly how Dr. Shrum will approach looking after your oral health.

You shouldn’t have to pay for parking for the privilege of going to get your dental work done.
Keith Shrum Dentistry is in a shopping mall with more than enough parking all year long.

At Keith Shrum Dentistry we have a Same Day Emergency service policy. We will do everything we can to fit you in today if you are in an emergency situation.

If a convenient location is important, do you want to drive all over the city to get your dental work completed?
Many dentists will refer out for procedures like root canals or dentures. At Keith Shrum Dentistry we can do pretty much all the dental work that most people require.

Some of your time will be spent with staff other than the dentist.
Keith Shrum Dentistry is not a large factory type office so you will not be passed around to several different people. Our support staff will get to know you and make your visit as comfortable as possible.
