We are pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Alicia Yokum to our Dental Practice. Dr. Yokum is available for immediate dental appointments and has evening hours available to better serve your emergency and comprehensive dental needs. Please help us welcome Dr. Yokum by calling our office at 724-228-4600 to make an appointment.
Dr. Yokum attended West Virginia University for both her undergraduate and graduate education and completed her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 2010. During her time at WVU, she was awarded special recognition for her research and interest in dental care for special needs patients.
After graduating from dental school, Dr. Yokum accepted a position at E. A. Hawse Health Center in Baker, WV. She practiced there for over four years before moving back to Pennsylvania to be near family. She has also worked for the SMILE program and is a part-time faculty member at WVU, teaching and supervising dental students in their student clinic. Dr. Yokum and her husband, Samuel Casey Yokum PharmD, have one son, Salvatore, and reside in Houston, PA.
A visit to the dentist can be a daunting task for many. There are questions, doubts, fear of pain, fear of the unknown, and uncertainty over the value of treatment. This is why trust is the single most important issue that we can provide our patients.
Building trust has been our theme since 1979 and is why we are the most successful practice in the Greater Washington area. Trust must be earned. It can be discussed, hyped, and, promoted but in the end it is how you are treated once you enter our practice that builds trust.
Our Practice prides itself on our loyalty of our staff. This loyalty begins with a continued theme of trust in each other which in turns builds loyalty to each other. One can sense this when they become a member of the Practice since they can see and feel the teamwork that occurs on a daily basis. This teamwork is then reflected in the actual treatment they receive, and follows through as their fees are quoted and their appointments are made.
We hope that you will become a member of our Practice to actually experience what a modern, high quality Dental Practice can do for you. If you already are a member of our practice then you have come to appreciate the value that we have provided to you by your continued loyalty and the trust you have so graciously bestowed upon us.
