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!

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.

The staff are friendly and I am always seen on time. I needed a cap for my front tooth, and the one the dentist made looks fantastic! I have already recommended this office to my friends.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
