Dr. Michael J. Herock

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

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

Dr. Herock lives in Hampton township with his wife and 4 children. He spends his time away from the office enjoying his children's active schedules.
