Danielle is great at making a visit to the dentist not feel like, "pulling teeth". The staff is very helpful and friendly. Overall a good experience every time knowing I'm in good hands.

By far the best dental experience I've had in 10+ years. Tonia is a great and makes sure your visit is as comfortable as possible.

I finally bit the bullet and stopped putting off going to have some much needed dental work done and I gotta say I love it here! I was nervous at first because it had been so long since my last dental visit and I hadn't been taking the best care of my teeth. The staff here are very patient, personable and non judgmental. Danielle, the dentist, and Tonia, the hygienist, walked me through everything that was being done and made sure that I was comfortable the entire time. The office is quiet and clean. I've had four visits in the last two months and have never had to wait long in the reception room. Also, it wasn't too hard to schedule appointments that fit around my work and school schedule since they offer evening appointments on some days. I just wish that I found this place sooner!

Everyone here at Merit Dental is amazing. Especially Tonia! She is very professional, caring and makes me feel at ease every time. I know that when I have Tonia I am in good hands. Thank you Tonia for making me feel that way! Definitely recommend Merit dental and their staff.

Not sure how to express the excellent, mindful, respectful and incredible professionalism Dr. Danielle and her staff deliver each and every time! She is the model of what a dentist should be. Never will go anywhere else. Her attention to the critical aspects in patient care far surpass expectation. Every review should be 5 star! If someone isnt happy with the service its very clear they are not good communicators because this Doctor and staff would immediately make it right! Big WIN from me and my family. I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for the best dentist in town!

I have been going to this office for a while now the staff and Dr Danielle are great ! I have never been treated poorly or rushed from the chair . Office is clean and updated and very comfortable. I hear laughing and talking as if we all are family and or friends. I highly recommend this office above any other dental office in Porter co !

I only went here four or five times in these few times I was not only treated very rudely but my appointments had been randomly canceled or rescheduled without my knowledge forcing me to take time off school for no reason. I would not recommend unless you want a surprise on when your dentist appointment is.

Dr. Danielle and her team fixed 10 years of dental neglect due to lack of insurance. I needed a crown, 8 fillings and 2 wisdom teeth removed when I walked in. The icing on the cake is that I have TMJ and my jaw locks up. Sometimes I could only do 1 filling at a time. I had about 10 appointments in 7 months. They were patient and compassionate. I'm so thankful for my dental health back!!

I made my first appointment as a new patient, I took the day off work to be there at 7am since their hours are not flexible at all; when I showed up they said I’m sorry but we changed your time and we cancel your appointment. We tried to call you but we couldn’t get in contact with you. I’ve never received a call and I lost a day of work due to their unorganized team. I will not recommend this place.

I have been going here for 10 years, but the new ownership put a stop to that. This was the worst experience at a dentist office I have ever had. I came in for three fillings. They sprayed me with water in the face not once but twice. Then had to redo each filling twice because the bonding agent wan't applied correctly. Really terrible!

Good service but if you're unable to pay your bill in full or fall behind, they'll have ne problem in sending it to collections. Plus if they say they are going to call and schedule a follow up appointment, don't believe, unless you're in good standing with them, ie your bill ois paid in full!

Over the years I’ve had quite a bit of dental work done from multiple dentists, but I can honestly say that I’ve never had more relaxed, painfree, and...dare I say...enjoyable visits than those I’ve had with Dr. Bube. You won’t find a sweeter dentist who really cares about her patients. She has a gift for dentistry and that makes my long commute to see her so incredibly worth it. I cannot say enough about Dr. Bube and how much she has helped me. To add to that, her entire office is just so pleasant - Tonia and Dar have both worked on my teeth and both wonderful experiences.

My experience was very good, I love the fact that the hygienist explained everything to me along with do’s and dont’s about my teeth and gums, Tammy was very friendly, she wasn’t harsh and I can’t wait till my next visit. The ladies at the front desk were all very friendly and that matters as well. I will be recommending this place to everyone I know.
