Helen is an extremely friendly hygienist, thorough, and able to answer all relevant questions. Dentists are great at explaining conditions and options going forward
My dentist and hygienist are great! They are talented and caring people. Plus the Membership is fantastic if you don't have dental coverage.
My experiences with my dentist office is always professional But friendly. All of the staff were very kind and patient with me. The office is always clean and inviting. The service I have received has been met with the upmost professionalism. The service is second to none. If you are looking for a dentist I would fully recommend Dr. Krischke for all of your dental needs. Signed happy customer.
Been coming here for years and they do fantastic work. Dr. Krischke is the best. :-)
Shelly was amazing with my 2.5 year old. She calmed her down and was able to do a full cleaning!! I also love everyone at the office. Everyone is so kind and caring for myself and my 3 girls. Ann and Helen cleaned my other girls and they were very pleased. To enter and see Nickolas smiling face everything is just wonderful!!
I've been seeing Dr. Van Buskirk for years, even after moving out of the area, I came back to have my dental work .He is an exceptional dentist with a friendly and professional staff . I am grateful for Dr. Mark and staff.
Dr. Krischke is professional, personable, and compassionate. He explains in clear detail what concerns or issues he sees and what procedures or care are needed to correct them. The office staff is friendly and welcoming. When procedures are necessary they will help you prioritize and plan out the order to complete your work. They also have an amazing subscription program to help with routine dental care if you don’t have insurance to help you.
Always pleasant and on time. The staff are wonderful
Great service. COVID-ready. Had teeth cleaned by the fabulous Helen. She does a great job. Actually referred 2 other people yesterday asking who did my teeth. Been going to this DDS office 40+ years.highly recommend them.
Everyone knows what their job involves and does it very well.
I just want to say that I was completely satisfied with my visit with Dr. Van Buskirk. All of his staff new what they were doing and everybody was social distancingKeep up the good work you are professionals.
Mark is a great Dentist. I hope he doesn’t plan to retire soon!!!
Dr. Krischke is so incredibly gentle and understanding of people’s fear of dentists and pain. I would highly recommend this office!!
I had the misfortune of breaking a tooth yesterday and was close to my dentist’s office when it happened. So, I stopped in to see if they could fit me in and they did! Truly amazing! Walked out of there with a temporary crown and will have the permanent crown in little over a week. They were awesome!
My son had his 1st visit this week. Extremely happy with the whole staff!!!
I always have a good experience here. Helen is a fantastic hygienist and Dr. Mark is first rate! They are on time and really provided great assistance with payment options.
Love the staff! So friendly & helpful. Would recommend to anybody!
Never had a bad experience and I’ve been coming longer the I can remember. I drive about an hour and have no interest in finding another dentist and hygienist. Their great folks!
Provided excellent service.
Great staff and doctors.
Made time for me even when appointment was mixed up. Made me feel comfortable and all staff extremely kind and compassionate. Dr Van Buskirk was always aware and able to manage pain during my visit. Felt 90% better in less than 24 hours of my visit.
Helena is the best hygienist ❤ I drive 40 minutes just to come here.

Been going for almost 20 years staff is awesome.
My husband and I have been patients for many many years. Friendly and excellent staff always . They make going to the dentist very comfortable and confident
Kind, friendly, knowledgable, and of course a very efficient staff. I made the right choice when I decided to pick a new dentist! Doctors Van Buskirk and Krischke are definitely Crown Point’s finest!
I loved my experience here. I had to get a filling and was nervous since i have not been to the dentist in year. But the staff and the Dentist made everything so easy to handle. They were all so nice and professional. I felt zero pain from shot to drill and fill and i was absolutely impressed. I would and do recommend this place to anyone who needs a filling or just a relaxed environment if going to the dentist makes you nervous.
So very grateful to find Dr Mark and his whole staff. They were very thorough,explained everything and very kind. Definitely would recommend this office.
This was my second time there. First time was for a dental emergency and they got me in quickly and did a great job taking care of me. This time, I had my teeth cleaned by Ann! I let her know that my teeth were sensitive and she was very gentle and very concerned about my comfort. We also had some great conversations. Dr. Mike was great as well!! Everyone is extremely friendly and that is so refreshing. I highly recommend them!!!
The best dental facility to go to. They take that fear of the dentist right out. Great staff highly recommend to anyone in the area. My 5 and 9 year look forward to going to the dentist every time.
Best dental experience! Staff is wonderful place! The office is great and up to date. Will never go anywhere else!
Very good staff and marks great to 😁
The staff is always so friendly and helpful. I can get an appointment that works with my schedule. The hygienist is gentle and makes sure I am comfortable. Dr. VanBuskirk is warm and always does great work
Extremely friendly dentist and staff. Excellent dental hygenist. I will definitely be back!
I've been going to Dr. Krischke for the past 6 years and have always had a great experience. I love that they have tvs in their rooms so you can watch a show while getting a cleaning. Also, my 5 year old likes to go there because Ann is a great dental hygenist and has toys to keep my daughter entertained ( she loves to brush the stuffed animals' teeth which keeps her occupied during my appts). The receptionists are always kind and helpful before and after the appts for billing, if I owe anything. I've never have to wait long-I'm always seen very close to or earlier than my appt time. Overall, I would highly recommend them and look forward to going there for the years to come.
I have been a patient for three years and I have always had a great experience with the staff. Thank you. Betty Jo.
I had a wonderful professional experience at this dental office! Anne was very thorough in her work and gentle at that! Dr. Krischke took the time to do a thorough exam as well as explain everything to me!
Always a great experience with Dr. Mark and his staff. Very efficient and polite. New facility is modern and easy to find. Thanks for years of wonderful service
I love Dr Mark and Helen, and the whole staff, I been going there for years and recommend them to everyone. Amazing people and great work always. I can’t say enough about them🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
I highly recommend Dr. Krischke for all dental work. His work speaks for itself and I have never been in pain, no matter what procedure I have had done. Dr Krischke takes great pride in his work and his patients. He is personable and takes the time to listen to every concern or question you might have. The new office is absolutely beautiful and accessible for everyone. It’s very comforting to know that you are in the hands of an impeccable dentist, staff, and state of the art equipment for all your dental needs. Best in the region! Thank you for always taking my anxiety away and putting a smile on my face when I leave!
Always a great experience from the time I step inside the office till I walk out the door!!! Love going to the dentist!!!
Everyone is very pleasant. Painless dentistry!
Outstanding customer service. Very professional and courteous. Would recommend.
Wonderful dental office!!! Helen is a great hygienist— the BEST!! And the rest of the staff from the office, to assistants, to Dr. Krischke are all very helpful and professional to work with. Highly recommend them if you need a new dentist!! 😊
By far the best Dentist in the midwest from the front desk to Mark himself. If you’re one of those people that dread the dentist visits, trust me.. you’ll feel extremely comfortable here! Can’t wait to see their new location!
Great experience. In and out for a fantastic cleaning with xrays in 45 minutes.
It's been a great place to go for dental work. I haven't had any reason to complain. They have always done a great job on my teeth. I'm in the process of getting an implant. They are taking great care to make sure it is done right. They have always treated me with respect. The ladies have great personalities for dealing with people. Mix in a little humor and it can help ease the pain. So I smile when I leave their office. 😁
Great, great place!!! . Within an hour of calling, as a new patient, I had an appointment on a Saturday. The staff couldn’t have been nicer. Very caring and comforting. They treated me as if I had been going there for years! Pulled my tooth with no pain afterwards at all!! Amazing!
Dr Mark & his team are the best..They always work to get me in and out with my busy schedule..Love watching my HGTV while in for a cleaning!
This dentist is amazing !!! The staff truly cares, they know what they are doing, & have passion for what they do. You truly leave this dentist with a genuine smile.
I was told about this dentist and he successfully did his job and I am so happy to leave with a brighter smile 😃
The entire staff is exceptional, creating an experience that is probably unsurpassed in their entire service area. They make smiles brighter!
Friendly staff who get to know you! Great service and they do wonderful work. I love my dental hygienist and Dentist!
The ABSOLUTE best service and staff! The first time I walked in, I felt like FAMILY and that speaks for itself!
Amazing everyone was really nice!
Excellent staff,Very professional. Had 2 root canals done didn't feel a thing. Would definitely reccomend to others.

Friendly, professional , excellent personal service and good communication. I really look forward to my time in the office.
Been coming here for years. Never had a bad experience. Very nice and polite staff. Always giving me info on what I can do better in keeping my teeth in good shape. I’ve moved away and still come here because of the great care I receive!!
I have been going to this office for probably 25 years now. I would never go anywhere else! Awesome service.
I have been a client for 24 years. Dr Mark is the best as well as Helen the hygienist.
Helen & Dr VanBuskirk are awesome! They are worth the 2 hour drive to get there.
Best dentist, hygienist and staff you can find! I highly recommend every one of them! Call today!
The Dentists, Hygienist and Assistants are very knowledgeable and very pleasant No one likes to go to the dentist but this group makes the experience much easier.
Dr. Mark and team are top notch. Our family has been going to Dr. Mark for years and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Dr. Mark is the only dentist we’ve found who can give pain free shots for dental work! Lol We would highly recommend him and his team, without hesitation.
My crown came off and I got in the same day. I’ve been a patient for over 20 years. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
Very neat and clean facility. The staff is very friendly and take pride in their work and patience and taking the time to talk with you while cleaning your teeth and making sure everything is OK. Overall it’s a great experience when you arrive and when you leave because of the friendliness and the care everyone takes to make sure everything is done properly and you understand what has been done and what is going to be done on your next visit ! Mark is excellent in his work in dentistry making sure everything is good and explains the procedure as it goes along kudos to him and all of his staff always a pleasure to have my mouth numbed and teeth fixed 🤤
Always friendly, efficient, knowledgeable service. I've been a patient for years and it just keeps getting better!
Such an amazing staff of caring and compassionate individuals!
Been a patient for over 15 years. Professional, knowledgeable, friendly staff. Would highly recommend them.
I have been hunting for a great dentist for years. I love this place! Great atmosphere, kind staff and talented and caring dentists! I had a veneer placed over an old crown. It looks beautiful and 100% natural! Pricing is very fair!!! 😀 I recommend this place 100%!
As always, my dental issue was handled with professionalism and kindness by Dr. Krischke and his staff. Most importantly, I felt no pain.
Dr Krishke is seriously one of the BEST dentists I've ever had So thorough, so kind. He's only a tad more expensive than My last dentist but I'm not upset about it because I know the work is getting DONE! I had a root canal and seriously the lidocaine injection was one of the easiest, most painless infections ever. So impressed. He just makes things easy for me and I'm so blessed to have found him
Hadn't been to the dentist in years, absolutely love dr van buskirk!! I need a lot of work done, and he's chugging right along, I can finally almost smile again! Not super expensive either!
I had a broken front tooth - Dr. Krischke was able to mend it and it looks great and still holding. So thankful.
Dr. Mark and his staff are the best! No pain dentistry at it's finest...before I knew it the procedure was over and on my way!
Wonderful dentist office & Helen the hygienist is AWESOME! Everyone is so kind & friendly there. Highly recommended!!! �
I have never been to better place. Ann cracks me up every time I am there and she does does great job on my teeth. Dr. Mike has a great bed side manner. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Had to get a Tooth pulled very back molar horribly shattered he saw me that day got me on an antibiotic offered me an appointment 3 days later and pulled it I DID NOT FEEL NOT ONE SHOT!!! He is phenomenal today is day 2 since it was pulled I have not taken any pain meds!!! He completely eased my dentist anxiety and the staff was extremely polite and helpful!! There is no possible way they could have made this a better experience!! Also only cost me $50 TOTAL!!
If you get anxiety from going to the dentist... go here!!! I am terrified of dentists, have been my whole life. I went in a few months ago ( an emergency procedure) to see Dr. Krishke for the first time and he is so calming! I have had numerous procedures done in the past few months and have not felt any pain whatsoever. I am no longer fearful of dentists. I would highly recommend this dental office!!
Dr. Van Buskirk is always in a good mood when I go to get my teeth cleaned, or to get cavities filled. He is also extremely gentle when drilling and giving shots. I am never really nervous when I go to the dentist because I know that I am in very good hands.
Friendly and welcoming staff. My family and I have all be satisfied patients for years!
I have been more than satisfied with the care I have received since 1995. Dr. Mark and Dr. Krischke have taken care of my teeth from drilling to filling and even straightening them using Invisalign. Ann has done a great job of cleaning my teeth. It is an office with friendly accommodating staff.
Great work. You can tell they take pride in their work. Been going there for years.
Dr. Mark has been my dentist since I was 18...(over 25 years) and Im so lucky to have him do such quality work on my teeth and my families teeth. His staff is also amazing. They have all become what I consider close friends. Thank You Mark!!!
No words can describe HOW amazing Dr. Mark and his entire staff of assistants and hygienists are! Nicolina and Rose NEVER have a bad attitude at the desk and always do the BEST to work with everyone's schedule! I've been there almost every week since November and can honestly say I love the dentist now! Two extractions and a root canal without any PAIN! Dr. Mark is the BEST!
Best dentists and staff around. Dr. Mark helped me after an accident, and also found issues from other dentist that needed to be redone. Thanks guys!
Ann is a great hygienist. She's really dedicated and has a great sense of humor
Dr Mark Van Buskirk and his staff are top notch. Each and every time I go into the dentist it's always been a excellent experience. The staff is always courteous and the office is beautiful. Each chair has a television.. and the office is beautiful.
I have always had major anxiety with dentists. Dr. Van Buskirk is the first dentist I have seen regularly and the first dentist I don't have panic attacks in the waiting room with ! He listened to my concerns and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and relaxed. The wait is never long and the staff is great !
Ann, my dental hygienist, is awesome! She's thorough, friendly, and thoughtful. She always does an excellent job cleaning my teeth.
Wonderful staff all around! Professional and attentive - always are willing to listen and work with my family with any concerns, treatment plans, etc. I love my hygienist - Helena - always a pleasure coming in for a cleaning!
Great office. The staff is always nice and accommodating and Ann is the best!
My grandmother refered me to Dr. Mark Van Buskirk. He is a fantastic dentist for sure but my favorite part about going to the office is seeing Ann Jackson. She cleans my teeth and always makes me laugh. She does such a great job and makes the visit fun not your typical 6 month cleaning that u dread going to. Thank you for that Ann!!!
I was never happy with the services provided to me by a dentist until I found this dental practice. Everyone is super nice, and Ann has an awesome sense of humor.
The staff as well as both Dentists are phenomenal. They treat you like family and always aim to please. Ann has been my hygienist for years and is highly skilled. Her work speaks for itself. I recommend both dentists and Ann to anyone who wants superior dental work with a caring touch!
Our family has been going to the office for over 5 years, love the doctors and the staff. Very good about working with our busy schedule and we have always had a great experience! One of our family just had braces, and that as well went perfectly smooth. Anna is wonderful and always a joy, very patient and knowledgeable. Rose is always a please to talk to when calling or coming into the office.
Love the friendly staff at VB&K! Always very willing to work with my time schedule and keep my families teeth in great shape. I am particular about my teeth because they are very sensitive. Ann Jackson is awesome and does a great job! I like the fact that I can always schedule my appointment with the same people. They become friends. My husband introduced me this office and he has been coming here since 1990. Can't say enough nice things about them all!
We have been coming to Van Buskirk & Krischke's office for several years now. With our daughter having braces, we are frequent fliers! The staff is always kind & helpful. Dr. Krischke is very patient and easy going. Our hygienist, Ann is great! She puts our daughter at ease and has fun with the visit. The office is always clean and the waiting room has more of a home feeling than that of a clinic.
Best dentist in NWI! Very professional staff. My hygienists Ann is the best around. You have no fears when you're in the hands of these kind and professional people at Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS!
I wish I could give more stars! I've had the pleasure to work with both dentists and they are both very thorough and wonderful. I absolutely LOVE my hygienist, Ann! She is so sweet and funny, making the cleaning enjoyable! 😊 I never want anyone else cleaning my teeth!
I have sensitive teeth and Ann waa so gentle while cleaning my teeth. They also have a great referral program. Highly recommend
Dr. Krischke is very caring and professional. The staff has always been very courteous. All my life I've hated having dental work but have never minded going to this office. My hygienist, Ann, is the best! She does such a wonderful job!
Can't beat the level of professionalism and friendliness you'll find here! It's simply unlike other dentist offices...you have to come in yourself to see what makes it so different!
Best dentist appointments I have ever had with the best dentist, Dr. Mark Van Buskirk, I have ever seen! Just had a small filling filled with no shots, DONE in ten minutes flat!!!!
Best Dentist in town, in state, maybe even the world!
I have always had the worst fear of going to the dentist until I found Dr Mark. I have been going to him for over 18 years and now take my young children to him. They have no fear going to see him. He is patient, kind and has taken excellent care of our family. I recommend him to family and friends without hesitation. The whole staff is awesome and they are great with kids too!
I can't say enough about the entire staff! I am a new patient and had my teeth cleaned and some dental work done just recently. I am SO glad I found Dr. Krischke. Helen is a fantastic hygienist as well!!! The ENTIRE staff is great, Toni, Annette, and the front desk gals too!! Dr. Krischke also does my daughter's orthodontic work. Pricing is very reasonable as well! Can't say enough positive things! HIGHLY recommend!!
I took my 13 year old son to have his teeth cleaned today. He said it was the best dentist visit he has ever had. He loved how friendly everyone was and that made him feel at ease. The staff here is extremely helpful and super friendly. 5 plus stars!
Best dental services in NW Indiana! Dentist, Hygienist and office staff, super nice and very professional! ! ;)
Dr. Mark Van Buskirk is the best dentist in the world!!!!
I never thought a trip to the dentist would be construed as enjoyable but that is exactly what it is. I always enjoy the excellent staff and great work everyone does from coming in to leaving after my cleaning. Until he retires whenever that may be he will always be mine and my wifes dentist.
Love the office staff, the hygienists and, of course, Dr. Van Buskirk and Dr. Krischke too. Always friendly and on time. I never feel nervous there.
Been here twice as recommended by a co-worker. They have a great referral program! Staff is friendly upon check in, and there usually is not much of a wait. Dr Van Buskirk is very nice but the gem of the office is the hygienist, Helen --she is wonderful!! She made me very comfortable, was very knowledgeable, and overall just a pleasure to work with -my teeth look and feel great!
Nobody wants to go to the dentist. But Dr. Mark has been caring for our families dental needs for over twenty years. They have provided us with everything from cleanings, fills, crowns, and bridges. Oh yeah, the ever feared extraction too. Which I just had Thursday, virtually painless I might add;-) The entire staff treats you like family, all the latest technology, and wonderful with youngsters. If you live in the Crown Point area, and might be looking for a great family dentist keep their number handy. This is not an add for them, but a thank you. So many people take the time to shout about bad experiences, but never take the time to say thanks for a great job. Well this is my way of saying thank you, and informing my friends of someone special in his feared profession. Thanks Mark and the whole team!
