Premier Northwest Indiana Family Dentist

Meet Dr. Beck

Dr. Rick Beck is proud to be a Northwest Indiana family dentist. He began his undergraduate education at Indiana University where he majored in biology. Upon early acceptance, he then attended the University of Illinois at Chicago and in 1994 graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree. Dr. Beck has been giving his patients something to smile about ever since.

He feels very fortunate to have found a profession he truly enjoys and that allows him to help his patients achieve a healthy, happy smile. Working as a Northwest Indiana family dentist in Merrillville is a bonus because this region is where he was born and raised. And now, it’s where he’s raising his family. Dr. Beck lives in Valparaiso with his wife, Liesl, and their three children, Ryan, Stephanie and Meghan.

When he’s not tending to patients, he enjoys coaching youth sports, especially volleyball, playing golf and spending time with his family.

What Our Patients Are Saying

I have been a patient of Dr. Beck since he first started and that has been a very long time. He knows what he’s doing and knows how to make you feel better and knows how to create a beautiful smile, and I have that!

Dr. Beck is the best! I am 36 weeks pregnant and had a tooth that went bad. I had the worst nerve pain, and Dr. Beck talked with me and got me in the same day and we decided to extract the tooth. He was very caring and understanding and made sure I wasn’t in any discomfort. I left still numb, but after it wore off I still didn’t have any pain—that was how nicely he removed my tooth. I recommend him to everyone always but even more so now. Awesome dentist!

Dr. Beck is honest. Hard to find in a dentist. We visited many different dentists with our children until we found Dr. Beck. The last one right before seeing him told us our one child had four cavities. Turns out she really only had one. There are so many crooks out there and doctors out there wanting to do unnecessary procedures just to make money and he is NOT one of them!
