Read What Our Patients Say
"From the first moment I had stepped into Lakeland Creek Family Dental and 2 years going, I have always experienced a warm atmosphere. I needed a lot of help to get what I needed done and they have spent an immense amount of time and effort to get me where I needed to be…. happy, a beautiful smile and worry free about any challenges that have come along the way. I can honestly say, I have never been to a dental office where so much help has been given, especially in my best interest. I would highly recommend Lakeland Creek Family Dental to anyone. My whole family sees them and we always leave with smiles."
"When you find yourself in office of Dr. Dankowski, you have nothing to worry about. Since you are there, you are in good hands. You certainly can expect perfect treatment and service. Very well organized and welcoming practice.Nice people. Highly recommended."
"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!"
"As being someone that hates going to the dentist … I have nothing but good things to say about the entire staff and service at Lakeland Creek. Pretty much pain free and they do their best to make sure you are at ease. No complaints!"
"First time, new patient visit today after not having dental insurance for a long time. They were extremely patient with me, very nice, extremely thorough and created a great plan of action for my future treatments as well as took the time to actually explain and teach me what I need to do at home to improve my oral hygiene. I’ve never had an office that took that much time and care with their patients. I highly recommend!!!"
