Lakeland Creek Family Dental
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!

Mary F Vanko MD Facog
Dr. Mary Vanko is the best doctor and saved the lives of my last two births. I was a high risk pregnancy with gestational diabetes; older birth mother in my 40's. Mary Vanko called for two c sections emergency. The first was a 37 wk. birth when my son was in distress. I was closely monitored and gave birth in St. Margaret Dyer hospital. Wonderful experience even being emergency. and the second one year later almost were twin girls; one being Down Syndrome which I opted out for testing even under suggestion. I did not want to miscarry doing unnessessary tests. I was closely monitored by Vanko and Dr. Grundy (ultrasounds) and during a 33 week visit Dr. rushed me to hospital and knew I was too large and too risky to carry. The bag was thin and could have ruptured if she hadn't called it right. She delivered at Methodist (hated hospital and Pediatric dr.) but loved Vanko. Once again saving me and the twins. My scars from C section are very minimal and was taken care of wonderfully by her. She knows her stuff! She is the reason I now have 3 healthy children at the age of 11 (twins) and 12 (boy) at the age of 54!. She is the best dr. and I always recommend her to anyone especially high risk. Wouldn't have any of these quack drs or quack midwifes touch me ever ..only Vanko! My last gyno before Vanko told me I couldn't have any children before I went to Vanko for routine visit. I had children late in life (a blessing for my 2nd marriage to a wonderful man that deserved a chance to be a father). Vanko made this happen for us. No fertility, no drugs just A1 care. Wish all my doctors could have been this good. Years later having a terrible dr. do a hernia operation made terrible vertical long scar on my abdomen after Vanko's incisions were almost invisible. I also had a longer recovery period after the shabby hernia operation and it didn't even do any good. That just proves there's good Drs. and real bad ones out there. (by the way the hernia was done at Mt. Siani a 6 hour wait for outpatient surgery and there was minimal after care with it..never go to Siani hospital..you'll die!

I love Dr. Vanko. After trying to get pregnant for 5 years on my own I went through fertility treatments with her. She never gave up and we eventually conceived. I delivered a beautiful healthy boy! 3 years later I got pregnant again and due to my health issues my 2ND son was born premature. Dr. Vanko was amazing! She did everything she could to help my son be as healthy as possible under the circumstances. My second son is now 10 years old and has a mild case of Cerebral Palsy. I feel things could have been so much worse if Dr Vanko hadn't been there. I've been seeing Dr. Vanko for almost 20 years and I am so thankful to have her as my Dr.

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!

Broadway Dental Care
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.

Other doctors wanted to do a hysterectomy on me and Dr Vanko solved my bleeding problems with a simple in office procedure that my insurance company paid 100%of.No bill for me and no surgery either. Happy and you know it.!!!!!
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
