I am long-time fan of Dr. Dankowski and his entire team at Lakeland Creek. I've been with them for over two years now, I only wish I switched sooner. I have had so many situations before where some dentists would just give up or even worse - take on doing something they should not have been doing. I have had root canals done at LCFD, crowns, fillings - you name it! They cured the periodontal decease I had and they are always so delicate about how they do things and, very importantly, say things about the hygiene and all. Last year Dr. Dankowski was quick to recognize the shifting midline and all kinds of issues that I was having. He set me up with an excellent and very affordable orthodontist. He developed entire treatment plan and I know how he went extra mile to meet with the orthodontist to discuss my case, sent all the x-rays and his plan expediently. Once I complete this treatment, I will be ready for implants procedures at LCFD and I just can't wait to get that done. The way this practice is run really stands out - and believe me, I've been around so many dental practices around the country and particularly in this area. Nice, courteous and professional staff, from the front desk to the hygienists and assistants, yet they are so easy going and pleasant to just be around. I never had any issues with the insurance or paperwork, and they always accommodate my time - I am a working single mom - for appointments. There is never any pressure, but compassion and understanding. Doctor goes through the treatment plan in much detail and in simple language that we all know is so hard to get from so many dentists these days. And they are always patient with me when I ask to clarify or if some things can wait - simply straightforward but nicely and kindly they tell me things as they are. I am glad I found this place. I told many friends and family about my experiences - from what I know, once they cross through the door of LCFD, they say to me they wish they were there sooner. It is affordable, they accept so many plans as far as I know, like no other practice in Merrillville, Hobart and Crown Point, they have convenient hours and locations and they will accommodate your time. Thank you Lakeland Creek Family Dental, I don't know where I would be without your care!

Bahl, Manoj K, DDS
I absolutely abhor going to the dentist! However, at Excel, I was treated very kindly by the staff and Dr. Bahl is completely awesome! He is very informative and took the time to welcome me to the family, explained his philosophy and how he works, what his goals as my dentist were AND after my examination and x-rays explained where we are going from here. He is fantastic! On one hand HD is this knowledgeable dentist, and on the other the nicest guy you ever want to meet! That is the combination I was looking for!

Lakeland Creek Family Dental is THE dental office to take your entire family to. Nearing the winter break, your kids will acquire cavities and toothaches due to all the candy canes and hot cocoa consumed. Take your children to this family-friendly environment and get fix those teeth! Going into my first appointment I wasn't positive on how the outcome would prevail. The five-star reviews just seemed too unbelievable! After my appointment, I was in complete awe: the Lakeland Creek Family Dental is breathtaking!

I hated old dr who worked there. His work was poor and staff were not friendly. And I did not understand after me paying all that money, and I was having more problem. Dr. Kang took over the practice few years ago. And she fixed all previous work done by Dr. Aswath/Fatland, and did not even charge me for it. Love new dr and love her work. She will be only person who will touch my mouth now on. Hyginist is very gentle and good with kids. Love whole staff. I would recommend everybody to come back and meet her.

Best dental office. They took out 2 of my teeth and I didn't feel a thing. Friendly staff made my visit a good experience. I was so nervous that I almost cancelled my appointment. Glad I went there, and will go back for the rest of my work.

Tips & Advices
While going to the orthodontist can be difficult, sometimes it's necessary. If you are concerned about tooth alignment, feel your jaw shift, or are experiencing problems like difficulty chewing or grinding your teeth, it's time to see an orthodontist.
There are generally three types of braces patients can be fitted for at the orthodontist:
  • The more traditional option, bands, wrap around most of a patient's tooth.
  • Brackets are the most popular, applied directly to the tooth in metal or plastic form.
  • Lingual braces are brackets attached to the back of teeth.
People of all ages can wear braces to straighten their teeth, but it is most common to be fitted for these adjustments between the ages of 10 and 14. This is the time when teeth are better able to be straightened because the head and mouth are still developing.
The American Board of Orthodontics recommends finding a dental specialist that is board-certified, offers free or reduced-price consultations, and displays qualities such as trustworthiness, ability to communicate effectively, and attentiveness.
Orthodontists must complete a four-year undergraduate program to gain admission to dental school. After earning a Doctor of Dental Science degree at an accredited four-year dental program, students must then either complete a post-degree training program or one to two years residency in orthodontics. Then they need to earn a state license in order to practice. Certain states also require board certification.
