I've been a patient here for 5+ years. When I first started coming here it was an overall good experience considering it's a dentist office. Over time it's became one of the worst dentist offices I've been to. My wife whom is terrified of dentist asked that I come back with her while they examined her. After sitting with her for 5 minutes I was told I was not allowed to be with her. That among several over things is why I would not recommend this rude dentist office.

The staff of merit dental are so professional and make your visit as stress free as possible. Dr.Eblon is one of the best medical professionals I've ever encountered and it made me feel less stressed about my visit. I highly reccomend if you're in search of a dentistry that is kind, caring, and super nice.

Amazing experience!! I ended up with an accessed tooth and needed an emergency extraction. They got me in to look at my tooth and get an X-ray. Prescribed antibiotics and got the tooth out with no complications within the next week. All of the staff is super friendly and informative. Highly recommend!!!

My children love coming here. The dental assistant that cleans my daughters teeth is always so nice to them and really makes them feel comfortable. I’m not sure of her name but she has two teenage daughters if that helps. She is awesome and we will always bring our kids back here!

I was very happy with the entire experience. Friendly non judgemental (even though it had been three years since i had been to a dentist)May have been the most efficient dentist visit I have ever had. Most of the time as a new patient they will not even do a cleaning on the first visit only evaluation so i was happy to have the cleaning done the same day.

A 10, of course!! I'd give Merit 100, if it was an option! Just the best! I've already told several people about my excellent care. I did in the first text.

Time for Dr Eblen to retire! He is completely useless! I had and infected tooth and gave me one round of amoxicillin and then he referred me to the hospital emergency room. Total waste of time and use of insurance benefits. Don’t risk the same or worse.

They do not answer the telephone. When you leave a message they do not listen to it. I chipped my canine tooth over the weekend and they just play phone tag. It is time for me to find a more patient friendly Dental Practice.

Dr. Eblen and his staff do an awesome job of making me feel comfortable when I am there including easing my nerves when I have to have actual dental work done. A special shout-out to my hygienist, Lisa. She is wonderful and really shows great concern for her patients. I would highly recommend Merit Dental to anyone looking for a quality dental office.

Dr. Eblen has been my dentist for over 20 years and I couldn't ask for a better one. I'm not the easiest patient because I get a little worried and very nervous when anything has to be done at the dentist office. He and all of his staff has always taken great care of me. I can say first hand he really does care about his patients.

Dr. Eblen takes very good care of your teeth and makes sure you understand all procedures. His staff is excellent. You don't worry about your teeth when you are a patient of Dr. Eblen's.

I have always been very pleased with Merit Dental. Dr. Eblen has taken care of my teeth for many years now. He has done everything from standard care to cosmetic crowns on damaged teeth. I came to him after another dentist had cracked one of my teeth to the point it had to be removed and replaced with an implant. Dr. Eblen and his staff did a wonderful job. If you are looking for fine dental care with a caring and talented staff, Merit Dental of Evansville is just the place for you.
