As a child, Dr. Krider had a great experience with her Orthodontist, and has been interested in the art and science of dentistry ever since. The Krider Dental team is hard-working, detail-oriented, and ready to help whenever needed. We regularly invest in continuing education and new technology that allows us to provide an amazing experience for our patients. We want you to feel comfortable and well-taken care of in our space. Welcome to Krider Dental.
Dr. Heidi Krider is a graduate of Hanover College and Indiana University School of Dentistry. She moved back to the area to join the practice that she now owns. Dr. Krider has learned a lot through her experiences in dentisty. She recognizes the importance of listening to her patients and the value of understanding each person’s desire for their dental health. She believes that a healthy, beautiful smile can change a life.
Dr. Krider wants her patients to be actively involved in their treatment decisions, knowing that their participation and commitment to continued care is necessary for treatment success.
When not caring for patients, Dr. Krider loves to spend time with her husband, Brian, and her two boys, Tobey and Elijah. Together, they enjoy outdoor projects at home, biking, camping, golfing, and playing at the lake. Brian and Heidi are thankful for the many blessings in their lives and have chosen to give back through service in their church and giving to various charitable organizations.
Dr. Trok graduated from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1975 and has rigorously pursued an active post-graduate study program at the prestigious L D Pankey Institute in Miami, FL. Upon graduation from dental school, Dr. Trok was a part-time clinical instructor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. From 1970 to 1972, John was a teaching assistant at the L D Pankey Institute.
Dr. Trok has also been active in organized dentistry. He is past-president of the PA Seventh District Dental Society and chaired the Dental Health and Health Planning Committee from 1989 to 1991. Some of his professional memberships include ADA, IDA, Academy of General Dentistry, and the L D Pankey Alumni Association.
John’s number one responsibility to every patient is to listen to their concerns, which in turn leads to an exchange of ideas. This give-and-take approach helps develop trusting relationships that encourage people to share values, identify problems, take ownership, and make appropriate treatment decisions. Communication is the key to understanding. Dr. Trok enjoys a “patient-centered” practice, where the care provided is comprehensive, personalized, quality-centered and highly service-oriented.
On a more personal note, Dr. Trok volunteers at the Matthew 25 Dental Clinic in Fort Wayne as well as the Pro Papa Missions in Honduras, where he performs routine oral surgery procedures. He is married to Deborah, has two daughters, Jennifer and Julie, and currently resides in Fort Wayne. John’s favorite activities include fly tying and fishing, gardening, woodworking, jewelry making, and religious education at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church.
The cost of fine, preventative dental care is a concern for most patients. Like you, our dental patients are restricted by a monthly budget, value the appearance and health of their teeth, and desire to have the best care possible. With our experience, you can trust that we will be attentive to your financial concerns.
We offer many options to help you keep your care. We can stage your treatment over several months or even years, depending on your needs. We would be happy to help you in any way that we can.
We do ask for payment at the time of service unless other arrangements have been made with our business staff. We offer a discount on treatment over $300 when paid in full at your appointment. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Mastercard, Visa and Discover.
Our practice is dedicated to quality care and exceptional service. We respect the importance of your time and work very hard to schedule appointments that accommodate your busy scheduling needs. Your appointment is your time to receive care. We try to keep that time focused only on you. For this reason, it is very important that you keep your appointments.
If you must change a scheduled appointment, we ask for a minimum of 48 hours notice so we may try to accommodate another patient. A charge will be applied for broken or missed appointments without advanced notice.
