When Dr. Kapers was in elementary school, he went to an explorer group and got to visit a dentist’s office. Seeing the dentist work and interact with the patients was such a great experience, and he was inspired to follow in his footsteps. He made the decision to become a dentist in the 4 th grade – and all these years later, he’s still 100% confident he made the right choice!
Dr. Kapers 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 of 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 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 son 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 too 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.
