‘‘“I aim for you to have a positive and professional experience while receiving high-quality treatment built on a foundation of excellent communication.”

‘‘Their newest dentist, Dr. Merritt, is excellent. The examination was thorough, painless, and professional. And as a bonus, the entire visit was cheaper than my previous dentist. Glad I finally switched to a dentist in my own neighborhood!’’
