Personal, Professional Northwest IN Dental Office

       "Well we have digital x-rays obviously. We have air abrasion units which we don’t have to use anesthetic for. We have lasers, again, which some procedures have the ability of doing without anesthetic. Anything that is coming out we try to find out if it’s the best and if it is the best, we try to integrate it into our practice for our patients."

   Creating Smiles is a general family dentistry practice serving the communities of St. John, Crown Point, and Valparaiso. Our modern offices have stayed current with technology and the latest techniques in dentistry. We provide a family-friendly atmosphere and amenities that will make your entire family relaxed and comfortable.

   Our modern offices are designed to make you comfortable. We use digital X-rays, intra-oral cameras, and have TVs in every operatory. We provide family care and minimally invasive treatments, including air abrasion, which allows us to remove tooth decay without a drill or local anesthesia.

   Our staff includes dental assistants who have been with Dr. Kapers since he started in dentistry more than 20 years ago. We take pride in our services and do not compromise! We want to make sure you are happy with your smile by the time you leave our office.


"Continuing education is a big part of our practice philosophy. Obviously new things are coming out, especially with TV and internet, patients can find anything and everything and we need to know about it. Through continuing education, if it’s implants, dentures, practice management, whatever, we like to make sure that we offer our patients anything and everything that is out there."

   We spend time with all of our patients to educate them about any needed procedures. Dr. Kapers provides sedation dentistry for those of you who have a fear of the dentist. We also offer sedation to patients who need multiple treatments. Using oral conscious sedation, which is a prescribed pill, patients can complete all of their dental work in just one visit! This allows you to cut down on your dental visits, which means less time off of work and more time spent with your family.

   Sedation dentistry gives fearful patients the opportunity they need to achieve the smile of their dreams. After one visit using sedation, most of our patients tell us that it was the best dental visit they have ever had. Our office cares deeply for our patients, and we check in with our patients after their procedures to make sure their recovery is on task.
