When you have an emergency, Dr. Mark Dankowski of Lakeland Creek Family Dental is there to help you – even if you’re not an existing patient of his practice.

“No one plans a dental emergency, and that’s why we make every effort to schedule same-day emergency appointments at Lakeland Creek Family Dental,” Dr. Dankowski said. “We are well-equipped with the latest technologies so we can treat people with serious problems as seamlessly as we provide routine care. The unique range of dental services we provide is something we take great pride in here.”

Having had the great opportunity to work alongside a team of five seasoned dentists with around 50 years of combined expertise, Dr. Dankowski’s first experience in private practice was with Afdent Dental Services, a large comprehensive family dentistry practice in Fort Wayne.

“Working at Afdent allowed me to gain significant experience in root canal therapy and oral surgery in a very short period of time,” he explained. “I would never be where I am right now if it was not for my tenure with Afdent.”

Several years later, Dr. Dankowski learned of an opportunity to build his own team in Northwest Indiana, providing extraordinary care to patients of all ages including extra gentle cleanings and polishings, cosmetic dentistry, simple and complex extractions including wisdom teeth removal, root canal treatments, gum treatment, denture work, implant dentistry and same-day emergency pain relief.

“The hallmark of my office is our great staff,” Dr. Dankowski added. “From day one, when I came to Lakeland Creek Family Dental in November 2009, the goal has been to work together as a cohesive team. This group of knowledgeable, well-trained professionals treats everyone as if he or she is the only patient of the day. Patient comfort is a top priority, and we take our time, listening carefully to each person so we can thoroughly explain all of the options.”

Conveniently located in the heart of northwest Indiana, just a mile and a half east of I-65 along the Route 30, next to Avalon Manor, Lakeland Creek Family Dental is looking forward to introducing CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) for restorations including crowns, veneers, bridges and implants as well as 3D CT-guided (computed tomography) implant surgery. Together, these technologies represent the most significant advances in dentistry since the first dental radiograph was taken in 1896, according to leading experts in the field.

“We’re investing in these proven cutting-edge technologies now because our patients deserve the very best possible outcomes,” Dr. Dankowski said.
