Your Visit to Harvest Dental
We strive to make your time with us enjoyable and effective. From the moment you walk through our doors to the time you leave, we promise to listen to you, take great care of you, and provide the level of service you deserve. We think this is quite simple really; we treat you the way we want to be treated when we visit the doctor.
During Your Visit
During your initial visit to Harvest Dental, we will take digital X-rays and images of your entire mouth. These images allow us to check your teeth for decay and also check for issues that usually go undetected by the naked eye. If we notice that your gums are a bit swollen or red, we may decide to measure your gums to determine the best type of dental cleaning for you.
After your dental cleaning, Dr. Lehr will spend one-on-one time with you to discuss your dental history, any exam findings, and proposed treatment plans. You can also discuss any goals you have for your smile. This time has been scheduled specifically for you, so feel free to ask any questions or ask for clarification. We want you to feel well-informed about your oral health.
Advanced Digital Technology at Your Visit
You deserve the very best dental care possible, and we believe advanced technology helps us provide that care. We use digital X-rays and an intraoral camera to diagnose and treat conditions affecting teeth, gums, and jaws.
- Digital X-rays emit 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays.
- An intraoral camera takes images of your mouth so you can see what we see when we examine your teeth.
- Digital technology makes dental care more effective and efficient!
We Look Forward to Meeting You!

We Are a Paperless Office
At Harvest Dental in Ephrata, we do our part to make sure our practice is environmentally-friendly. To help reduce our paper waste, we have completely eliminated paper forms, and instead use a secure online patient registration portal. Our patient portal allows us to keep reliable records so that you don't have to fill out forms every time you visit us. We want to do our part to create a sustainable future!
Our Scheduling Policy
We have designed our scheduling policy in order to provide each patient with an efficient, informative, and thorough visit. We only book one patient at a time, so you will receive our undivided attention during your scheduled appointment. If you are unable to make your appointment, please let us know at least 48 hours before your scheduled time. This allows us to offer the appointment to another patient or open up the time for emergency appointments.
When you experience a dental emergency, you need to see your dentist in Ephrata right away – not at the earliest available appointment. We set aside time each day just for emergency patients. We want to help alleviate your dental pain quickly and effectively.
Same-Day Emergency Treatment
If after your dental cleaning, we feel you would benefit from further simple treatments, we will give you the option of doing the treatment right after your cleaning. We know this option doesn't work for everyone's schedule, but many people like to get all their treatments done on the same day so they only have to miss work or school one time. We do our best to complete all dental treatments in as few visits as possible.
