Quality Family Dental Care in Indiana

Our comprehensive family dentistry in St. John and Valparaiso dental offices take pride in treating patients of all ages. We’ve treated patients as young as 2 and as old as 102.

Our doctors, dental hygienists, and dental assistants use gentle and preventative care techniques to help you and your family keep your teeth healthy for a lifetime. We can help start your child’s dentistry experience off on the right foot – or assist you and your loved ones with complex dental issues.

We work with families to set up affordable treatment plans, and our offices are conveniently open Saturdays to cater to working families and kids in school, which makes scheduling a breeze.

Our dedicated staff will walk you through any procedure before we begin dental treatment and give you oral health tips to practice at home. Each of our operatories includes chair-mounted TVs, and we use intra-oral cameras to show patients images of their mouth or dental issues. By educating our patients, we help reduce your risk of dental problems in the future.


Pediatric dentistry is also a part of our practice. We like to start seeing kids usually by the age of 2 years old. Sometimes kids are ready to come at 1 ½ years old but usually by 2 years old their teeth are coming in we will have the parents sometimes sit back with the child and kind of make it an enjoyable visit. If mom is there and the child is there it makes things a lot easier sometimes and sometimes the kids at 2 years old, they can come back by themselves and they enjoy coming back by themselves and just seeing everything that is back there. Some of our older patients obviously have had some bad and traumatic experiences and they don’t want that for their children so as a result, as dentistry has come such a long way, as long as these kids are coming back and coming in at an early age, it is going to make things real easy on them where they aren’t going to have a bunch of decay and a bunch of problems. Also educating the parents on nursing bottle rot and so forth, that helps them out tremendously so they don’t end up in having all the decay and then having a bad experience"

One of biggest benefits to working families is our staff’s ability to complete all of your dental care under one roof! By providing preventative dentistry, restorative dentistrycosmetic dentistryimplant dentistry, and sedation dentistry, we can help you with every type of dental problem that may arise. We avoid sending our patients to visit “this specialist or that specialist” when we can handle your care in-house.

Family dentist, Dr. Kapers, has undergone countless hours of continuing education courses to ensure that he can help you overcome almost any dental obstacles. He uses technology, education, and compassion to treat each and every patient. We will never lecture you or make your feel guilty about the condition of your mouth, and our safe sedation dentistry allows you to be comfortable and calm during your dental visits.

We treat each of our patients like our own family members. If you have a procedure scheduled with us, expect a check-in call that night or the following day from our staff. We’re here to answer any of your questions and to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible – even after you leave our office.
