Revamping Pike Creek Dental to better serve you!
Pike Creek Dental has been undergoing a major remodel over the last few months. We have completely expanded our waiting room and lobby to accommodate our patients more comfortably! We have also added more operatories. This way we will be able to treat our patients in a more timely manner. We are happy to announce the fish have returned home and are thriving in their tank! Look out for more exotic fish to be added over the next few weeks!
Pike Creek Dental: Giving Back and Supporting Local!
As an office we pride ourselves in supporting local businesses and we encourage our staff and reps to do the same. For our “Off to the Races” staff retreat we rented our inflatables from Jump On Over located in Middletown DE. They were easy to communicate with and on time! We would recommend them to all of our patients! Check them out https://www.jumponover.com/. For our last lunch and learn, our Crest rep was kind enough to bring the staff lunch from Portofino’s in New Castle. The staff couldn’t stop talking about how wonderful all of the food was https://porto-finopizza.com/. Cafe Pomodoro was delivered to the office last week for another extremely beneficial lunch and learn https://www.cafepomodoromenu.com/. One day last week Dr. Kyle treated the staff to Valle Cucina. Valle Cucina has some amazing weekly lunch specials, plus they deliver https://vallecucina.com/. Pike Creek Coffee Roasters made a stop by the office and dropped off some amazing new flavors for the fall season. This drop was for one of our amazing patients! https://www.pikecreekcoffee.com/
We are getting ready to make stops at the local Vo-Tech High Schools and visit with the Dental Assisting classes and brief them on the life of a dental assistant at Pike Creek Dental.

Pike Creek Dental WOW Winner!
At Pike Creek Dental we have started a WOW Winner for each month for our team. A QR code was created and posted all over the office to make it easy for all of us to recognize our staff members for acts of kindness and above and beyond moments with patients.
Congratulations to Dr. Kwon! Our 4th WOW winner!
Here are some of the amazing things our staff said about Dr. Kwon!
- She jumped in to help a patient with extraction right before the holiday weekend.
- She ran two columns and 6 hygiene and kept the schedule on time for our patients and staff.
- She uses the latest technology to provide the best care for our patients.
Pike Creek Dental continually strives to give back to our community. This past holiday season, employees made gift boxes full of dental items and age appropriate toys for Samaritan’s Purse, an organization that sends boxes of toys to children in need overseas. We also made numerous whitening baskets for local charities and local school events. Dental hygiene bags to local homeless shelters, Independence School, Skyline Elementary, St. Anthony of Padua Grade School, MS Society, Kay’s Kamp are just a few of the many charities we have donated to in the last few months. We would love to continue to give back to the community. If you would like for us to donate to your organization, please click on the link below and fill out the form.
