"I think it is great for the patients coming in, especially if they are needing sedation dentistry because we offer that here and if someone has been afraid of the dentist their whole life or had bad experiences in the past or even if someone hasn’t had that and they want to get a whole lot of work done, sedation dentistry can really offer that to them and we can get everything done at once. And we are very comprehensive here, we try to do as much as we can so we offer anything from periodontal treatment to implants to cosmetic treatment to just general dentistry and surgical procedures. I know our patients really appreciate that they can get most everything done in one office."

   Creating Smiles has served Northwest Indiana since 1993. Our staff of dedicated dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants work tirelessly to stay on the cutting-edge of dentistry and to ensure our patients are comfortable during their visits. Our St. John and Valparaiso dental offices provide comprehensive dental care to patients of all ages, from 2 to 102. We are a family office that enjoys seeing children and educating them about the importance of good oral hygiene.

  We understand that your time is valuable, so we offer preventive care, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, dentistry for children, and dental implants under one roof! Our offices are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and patient amenities like chair-mounted TVs in each operatory. 


"Dr. Kapers and I, I think we both really can just relate to patients on a regular basis, we are both just regular guys and it kind of goes back to being a laid back office and everything. I think we get along with everyone and when patients come here, I think they really have a great, positive experience with just our personalities in general. You know I just like to really involve the patient as much as possible and just kind of see what’s going to work for them in their treatment and then give them the options to get them to where they want to be with their smile and their oral health. What I do is try to educate them as much as I can with as much information and show them our findings of everything and just try to see how they want to get to the final result."

  Our practice puts your comfort first and strives to make your visits positive. We offer sedation dentistry to treat your dental anxiety or to complete multiple treatments in one single visit! We’ve seen sedation dentistry turn even the most resistant and fearful patients into our best patients.
