Our History

Founded in 1981 by Dr. Louis Sertich, the Merrillville Dental Center has been a part of the community for 40+ years. Dr. Kamp joined the practice in 2016 and has led several transformations to bring it to the absolute forefront of modern digital dentistry. Our most recent renovation was completed in 2024 which added an additional dental CT scanner, several treatment rooms, as well as an in-office laboratory to fabricate and repair prosthetics. Paired with the world’s greatest team, we’re able to handle most procedures in the office with the highest level of comfort. Our clinic is attached to an outpatient surgical center which allows our doctors to provide fully sedated dentistry to our patients when necessary. In 2024, our sister office, the Great Lakes Dental Implant Center opened next door, which provides full mouth teeth replacement & dental implants to patients from all over the Midwest.
