THANK YOU FOR YOUR REFERRALS!
More than 60% of all the new patients to our practice come to us through patient referrals. Thank you! We as a staff are proud in what we do, and will continue to do our best to provide painless, high end, technical and timely dentistry, in a very caring, hand-holding atmosphere. We are your neighbors and friends and always attempt to treat you that way. No question you have is insignificant. We attempt not only to earn your trust, but just as, importantly maintain your trust. That is our pledge to you!
Of the remaining new patients to our practice in 2017, 23% came to us because of our convenient location and ample parking. Surprisingly, the final 1% of our new patients came to us primarily because of our office's 40 panel , 14 KW Solar paneling that provides electricity to our office.
NEW PATIENTS AND DENTAL INSURANCE
As most patients already know, dental insurance is eroding yearly. Infact it is one of the first benefits that many businesses cut altogether. Those insurances that do exist often only pay 50% or less of higher end procedures such as crowns and implants. In our practice, 65% of all new patients in 2017 had no dental insurance at all.
To provide the experienced service that only a well-trained and caring staff can provide, we as a practice DO accept, process and maximize most dental insurances. What we are not is a "fully participating" practice. As dental insurance continually erodes in the services they provide, we find our "accepting" models is a much better way to serve our patients with the technical treatment, care and trust that our patients expect from us. We provide one hour (not 30 minute) cleanings. We provide and explain treatment choices that are not limited to a participating plan that might pay the best. We have more than 30 years in cosmetic dentistry experience and surround ourselves only with the best lab techs and dental specialists.
CELEBRATING JUDY'S 25 YEARS OF SERVICE
Above is the dinner celebrating the 25 years that Judy has been a member of our Rakowsky Dental Family. The celebration was held at the beautiful Hotel Bethlehem.
GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
From the very beginning of our practice 33 years ago, we as an office and staff felt it was important to give back to the community we live in. Our children went to school with your children, we stop at the same places you do and most of all we love being a part of what is beautiful Bucks County. We support the local schools, churches, fire fighters, police men, land preservation events and the scores of school plays, musicals and township festivals that make our area such an appealing place to live and raise a family.
Dentally, Dr. Rakowsky is the school dentist for St. John the Baptist and Palisades for almost 30 years, and the school dentist for the River Valley school since it was first founded. Rakowsky Dental is active in giving to the needy providing more than $20,000 of free dentistry in 2014 alone to Doylestown's Ann Silverman free clinic and the state run, non-profit donated Dental Service Organization.
OUR PHILADELPHIA EAGLES ARE WORLD CHAMPIONS
Finally! After more than 50 years of waiting our Philadelphia Eagles are world champions defeating the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl #52! Much of our staff participated in the excitement by dressing in Eagles green prior to the big game. Following are Donna, Eileen, and Bev celebrating their Eagles' spirit!
Rakowsky Dental was also well represented at the Eagle's victory parade down Broad Street in Philadelphia. Below are Lisa and her husband and Nina with her friends!
THE "LOOK UP ART INITIATIVE" LIVES ON!
For many years we decided it was less boring while laying back in the dental chair to place posters on our ceilings rather than staring at the water marks on our ceiling tiles. Then prompted by one of our patients, we initiated the "Look Up Art Initiative" and would purchase posters and our hygienist, Jess would contact the art teacher from one of the local elementary schools. The teacher would let them decide on the topic and just like that we developed a win-win project! The children could display their art at our office and the patients and staff had fun seeing all the artistic creativity that reside in the little heads, hearts, and hands of these small children!
Thanks to our assistant, Donna, the "Look Up Art Initiative" will create new joy. The nursing home facility, Neshaminy Manor, are thrilled that when we get a new batch of posters, they will have the opportunity to get the previous poster for their walls. The artistic creativity of our Upper Bucks elementary students will be enjoyed and live at a new facility where they will be enjoyed by a senior citizen and hopefully make them smile!
