Quality dental care can change your life. Dr. Kapers is a firm believer in the impact of providing exceptional dental treatment to the St. John and Valparaiso communities, and he strives to remain at the forefront of technological advances and new techniques.
Dr. Kapers has been practicing dentistry since 1993, and he never gets tired of helping patients change their lives through high-quality oral healthcare. He takes pride in spending a lot of one-on-one time with each patient, discussing their unique needs and creating one-of-a-kind treatment plans that exceed expectations.
While he was in elementary school, Dr. Kapers went to an explorer group and got to visit a dentist’s office. Seeing the dentist work and interact with the patients had such a strong impression on him that he was inspired to follow in the man’s footsteps. He made the decision to become a dentist in the 4th grade--and all these years later, Dr. Kapers is still 100% confident he made the right choice!
He completed both his undergraduate and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees at Indiana University. Today, he is very passionate about continuing education and takes an average of 100+ hours each year in advanced courses on new technologies. He has a particular interest in sedation dentistry (he is trained in DOCS sedation) and dental implants.
Dr. Kapers is married to his high school sweetheart, Melissa, who has worked here in his dental office ever since the doors were first opened. He also has a daughter who is following in his footsteps by attending dental school, and two sons. One plays professional baseball with the Texas Rangers organization, while the other plays division one baseball for Valparaiso University and hopes to reach the next level one day.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Kapers also has a love for baseball and even coached his sons in their earlier years. He really loves watching them play and hopes to coach again one day.
