Welcome to Schaefer Dental
As a patient of Dr. Ralph Ruckman, you have certainly become accustomed to the highest quality of professional dental care. Now, with Dr. Ruckman’s retirement, he has entrusted your care to the family at Schaefer Dental, and I personally want to ensure that you can count on the same exceptional level of attention and consideration.
An Easy Transition for You and Your Family
We have taken several steps to make this transition as smooth as possible. First, unless you directed Dr. Ruckman’s office to do otherwise, your dental records have already been transferred to our office. And if we need to learn more about your dental care, then we can be in touch with Dr. Ruckman and his team.
And speaking of Dr. Ruckman’s team, many of you may know Lyndsay Ballantyne, one of Dr. Ruckman’s dental hygienists. Well, Lyndsay is now working for us at Schaefer Dental. Seeing Lyndsay at our office will make you feel right at home, and I think you will find many other similarities between our practices. For example, we take great pride in helping our patients understand their treatment choices, insurance benefits and payment options before we begin service.
