In the past my teeth and gums were in bad shape. I disliked going to the dentist. I was very pleased that my gums no longer bleed and my teeth and gums both are in best shape they have been in a long time. The Staff is always pleasant and friendly and helpful. I had forgotten my insurance card, but the front desk was able to find my insured via web and file my claim. Awesome. This was only my second visit. I switched to be closer to home. My hygienist was awesome. I was made to feel like family.

As USUAL, my visit was most rewarding. From the dentist to the front desk, every one was cordial and most helpful. It is a pleasure to have Merit Dental as my go-to dentist.

I really appreciated my hygentist offering practical tip for improving teeth cleaning at home, and taking the time to explain a water pik to me. One suggestion, the outside of the building with the overgrown landscaping out front in combination with the empty side makes the building look closed/out of business. if you are driving by, I'd trim the bushes and clean out all the weeds.

Dr. Eblen and Alicia fixed a filling that had fallen out for me. I have had some traumatic dental experiences in the past and was terrified to get any work done ever again.. Dr. Eblen was reassuring the entire procedure and went above and beyond to make sure I was okay. Today there is little to no sensitivity. I can not say enough good things about Merit Dental.

As I've said many times before, a visit to the dentist is usually not something most don't look forward to. No so with Merit Dental. From Dr Eblen to Dama to Lisa, their professionalism and making me feel at ease is second to none. Thanks to all for making my visits enjoyable.

After only one visit, I have determined that this is perhaps the most well-run practice I have ever encountered. I was impressed by the disinfecting protocols in place--down to wiping down the X-ray equipment after use. The information shared by the dental hygienist and Doctor Eblen was thorough and very helpful. I highly recommend their practice.
