About Your Dentist

Michael J. Herock, DMD

Dr. Herock is a life-long resident of Hampton Township. After completing his education and subsequent residency in New Jersey, he moved back home in 1992 to establish his own dental practice. His primary goal was to provide quality dental care while working closely with the major insurance carriers in the Pittsburgh market. His start up practice, which began with servicing family and friends, has treated over 13,000 patients since its inception.

Committed to Excellence

In 2010, the dental practice of Michael J. Herock became incorporated under the name Certus Dental Care, LLC. The word "certus" is the Latin word for "reliable," and Dr. Herock felt this name was a good match for the goals that he has established for his practice.
