Visit Dr. Michael Krischke to Reach Your Smile Goals

Dr. Michael Krischke was one of 10 children when he was growing up on the northwest side of Chicago. He decided to become a dentist because he loves both craft and science. After graduating from Augustana College in Rock Island, IL, he earned his DDS from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry.

Dr. Krischke started a practice in northern Illinois, where he lived for 17 years before meeting his wife. They moved to Indiana in 2007, and he joined our team at Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC in 2009.

Dr. Krischke enjoys performing a wide range of dental procedures:

  • Placing and restoring dental implants
  • Extracting teeth
  • Beautifying smiles with orthodontics
  • Providing facial rejuvenation treatments such as Juvéderm®
  • Restoring smiles with dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures

Through dentistry, he has helped people maintain and obtain life-changing smiles.

“I feel as though I get along with my patients because I truly care. I listen. I put myself in their position, and with understanding and compassion, I work with them to achieve their dental goals,” he said. “I think by listening and by showing concern, I can make the experience as comfortable as possible. I think this approach works with both adults and children. I enjoy taking a broken-down mouth and transforming it into something both the patient and myself can be proud of.”

Dr. Krischke lives in Crown Point, where he enjoys cheering on the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Blackhawks, traveling, going out for a nice meal, and spending time with his loved ones.
