Excellent! The dentist and staff are very friendly and really care about your dental health. Prices are reasonable. Dr. Dancy is very skilled and I've never had problems with any work he has done (and I've been going to them for years). I highly recommend.

Highly recommend. I've been coming to this office since I was a child, and have always had an excellent experience. I was really encouraged at my last visit because it had been a long stretch in-between my visit (due to COVID), but not one staff member shamed me. They were very caring and even asked about my family remembering something I told them 2 years ago! Being a patient at this practice is a true pleasure. Dr. Dancy and each hygienist/staff member are kind, cool, and knowledgeable. Also, they have excellent taste in music!

— Thank you for the 5-star review, Essence! We are so glad you are happy with your experience with us! We take great pride in providing the very best in care for our patients.

I have been a patient for almost two years and I have always dreaded going to the dentist pretty much my entire life….I relocated to Indy last year and wasn’t too anxious about looking for a new dentist but I also know the importance of dental hygiene….My Dad recommend Merit Dental and I am sooo very thankful that he did…..The staff is totally amazing!!!!Even though I am NEVER excited about going, they do their very best to make my visit as pleasant as possible….I just love them!!!!

The level of professionalism of the entire staff was amazing. I appreciated everyone's positive and welcoming attitudes. I've never had a dentist office actually care about my blood pressure. I've also never had a dentist ask for my medicines then ACTUALLY discuss them with me. To have a dentist show concern in regards to not just my dental health but my overall health was very telling. Typically when you fill out a ton of paperwork at dentist offices it is simply filed. Dr. Dancy actually came into the exam room reading my paperwork asking clarifying questions where needed. Also coming into an office hearing Solange being played & box braids/locs / twist outs/and a fade being worn by the staff made me feel seen. I'm 38 and have never had that experience. I can only imagine what that would do for a black or brown child in regards to representation.

My second visit was better than the first for some reason. I actually look forward to going back This time. I also liked that I didn’t have to reschedule for a sensitive tooth that was fixed the same day I mentioned it. That made my day!!! Most places you would have to schedule another appointment. The staff that I had contact with was very pleasant. Timing was great as well!!!

I've been blown out of the water impressed by the staff and services of Dr. Austin for years and in the past year Dr. Dancy. They have made a seamless transition into the new era of Merit with Dr. Dancy being the primary doctor in office now.The new staff as a whole have really added to the already great vibe of this dental office. My new hygienist, Sheri, is such a knowledgeable and kind-hearted lady! She has been the first hygienist in my adult dental path to re-educate me on proper brushing, flossing and overall better dental care techniques. She also was an amazing upseller of all the goodies Merit has to offer. Thanks again Ms Sheri for the suggestion on a power toothbrush, only 2 days into using and I already feel the difference. Keep up the great work you all, it doesn't go unnoticed or unappreciated. I’ll be a patient for life!

During my first visit, my teeth were cleaned by the doctor because there was a severe snow causing travel delays in the area. So literally, the best cleaning ever, although I hadn't been to a dentist office in years. During my second visit (routine appointment), my teeth was cleaned by a usual hygienist and my experience was just as detailed. Very friendly and helpful staff. After each appointment, I leave feeling as if I was given the best care for my teeth. As well as, honest feedback on how I can better care for my teeth. The front office staff is friendly and welcoming as well. My teeth are not a problem, so I can't speak on how the care is for major issues, but I am sure it is just as pristine. Highly recommended.

great visit, Brayahna really loves Dr. Austin. Wonderfully personable. My whole family loves our Hygenist. Dr Austin & Shannon for the last 12 years have been amazing. And I met the new doc for the 1st time. He seems to be a nice addition to the office. The Lady doc is missed. She was very nice. Sorry I forgot her name {Bixby ?} We hope to be there another 12+ years.

Dr. Austin and his entire staff were wonderful to us. They were able to save my oldest daughter's tooth after we had been told it would have to be removed by a previous dentist. They also took special care with my teenage son who is autistic and hyper-sensitive. The service was incredibly thorough and professional and the receptionists were warm and pleasant and ensured all four of us had appointments that fit into our schedules. Definitely the best dental ministrations we have ever received.

Merit Dental staff is very welcoming, personable and knowledgeable. Some people have anxiety when they go to the dentist and most of the stories I hear it’s because they’ve had a bad experience with their cleanings. I can say when I get my teeth cleaned, etc…Brittany has the touch of an angel. Merit Dental is great!

Donnie Anderson

Dr Austin and his staff are one of a kind. The staff are friendly and gentle. Will let you know what will happen at the office. In addition, help you understand how to take care of you teeth at home. Help me understand the right way to floss. All of this happen before you see Dr. Austin. When Dr. Austin comes in he goes open the X-Rays and let you know how to have better dental health. Dr. Austin was able to put me on a whiting program and other people can see the difference. Great doctor and staff!!!!

I really liked Dr. Austin and his staff. I thought they were friendly, thorough and gentle. It was very well run and organized and the ladies that ran the front desk were super nice. Also I was a little chilly and the doctor came out with a blanket for me while I waited on my daughter. Now that is service. Next time I will ask for a foot rub..haha!

Judith Gaines

Dr. Austin costs a little more, but he is gentle (good for all of us cowards), and his work is top-notch. If you're looking for a dentist for whatever reason, here he is--right on Eden Drive. Perhaps if you live in Florida this might be too far to drive; however, no one else lives so far that this drive wouldn't be well worth it.

My second visit was better than the first for some reason. I actually look forward to going back This time. I also liked that I didn’t have to reschedule for a sensitive tooth that was fixed the same day I mentioned it. That made my day!!! Most places you would have to schedule another appointment. The staff that I had contact with was very pleasant. Timing was great as well!!!

I've been blown out of the water impressed by the staff and services of Dr. Austin for years and in the past year Dr. Dancy. They have made a seamless transition into the new era of Merit with Dr. Dancy being the primary doctor in office now.The new staff as a whole have really added to the already great vibe of this dental office. My new hygienist, Sheri, is such a knowledgeable and kind-hearted lady! She has been the first hygienist in my adult dental path to re-educate me on proper brushing, flossing and overall better dental care techniques. She also was an amazing upseller of all the goodies Merit has to offer. Thanks again Ms Sheri for the suggestion on a power toothbrush, only 2 days into using and I already feel the difference. Keep up the great work you all, it doesn't go unnoticed or unappreciated. I’ll be a patient for life!

During my first visit, my teeth were cleaned by the doctor because there was a severe snow causing travel delays in the area. So literally, the best cleaning ever, although I hadn't been to a dentist office in years. During my second visit (routine appointment), my teeth was cleaned by a usual hygienist and my experience was just as detailed. Very friendly and helpful staff. After each appointment, I leave feeling as if I was given the best care for my teeth. As well as, honest feedback on how I can better care for my teeth. The front office staff is friendly and welcoming as well. My teeth are not a problem, so I can't speak on how the care is for major issues, but I am sure it is just as pristine. Highly recommended.

Dr. Austin and his entire staff were wonderful to us. They were able to save my oldest daughter's tooth after we had been told it would have to be removed by a previous dentist. They also took special care with my teenage son who is autistic and hyper-sensitive. The service was incredibly thorough and professional and the receptionists were warm and pleasant and ensured all four of us had appointments that fit into our schedules. Definitely the best dental ministrations we have ever received.

Merit Dental staff is very welcoming, personable and knowledgeable.

Dr Austin and his staff are one of a kind. The staff are friendly and gentle. Will let you know what will happen at the office. In addition, help you understand how to take care of you teeth at home. Help me understand the right way to floss. All of this happen before you see Dr. Austin. When Dr. Austin comes in he goes open the X-Rays and let you know how to have better dental health. Dr. Austin was able to put me on a whiting program and other people can see the difference. Great doctor and staff!!!!

I really liked Dr. Austin and his staff. I thought they were friendly, thorough and gentle. It was very well run and organized and the ladies that ran the front desk were super nice. Also I was a little chilly and the doctor came out with a blanket for me while I waited on my daughter. Now that is service. Next time I will ask for a foot rub..haha!

Dr. Austin costs a little more, but he is gentle (good for all of us cowards), and his work is top-notch. If you're looking for a dentist for whatever reason, here he is--right on Eden Drive. Perhaps if you live in Florida this might be too far to drive; however, no one else lives so far that this drive wouldn't be well worth it.

Essence Brown

Apr 01, 2022

Highly recommend. I've been coming to this office since I was a child, and have always had an excellent experience. I was really encouraged at my last visit because it had been a long stretch in-between my visit (due to COVID), but not one staff member shamed me. They were very caring and even asked about my family remembering something I told them 2 years ago! Being a patient at this practice is a true pleasure. Dr. Dancy and each hygienist/staff member are kind, cool, and knowledgeable. Also, they have excellent taste in music!

— Thank you for the 5-star review, Essence! We are so glad you are happy with your experience with us! We take great pride in providing the very best in care for our patients.

The level of professionalism of the entire staff was amazing. I appreciated everyone's positive and welcoming attitudes. I've never had a dentist office actually care about my blood pressure. I've also never had a dentist ask for my medicines then ACTUALLY discuss them with me. To have a dentist show concern in regards to not just my dental health but my overall health was very telling. Typically when you fill out a ton of paperwork at dentist offices it is simply filed. Dr. Dancy actually came into the exam room reading my paperwork asking clarifying questions where needed. Also coming into an office hearing Solange being played & box braids/locs / twist outs/and a fade being worn by the staff made me feel seen. I'm 38 and have never had that experience. I can only imagine what that would do for a black or brown child in regards to representation.

The Merit Dental staff is very welcoming and knowledgeable. I have never felt more comfortable when going to the dentist then I am when I am in the care of Dr. Austin and staff.

I never thought going to the Dentist could be a pleasant experience; however that changed with my visits to Merit Dental Indianapolis. Dr. Austin and the total staff are very professional and knowledgeable and seem totally dedicated to customer service.

Merit Dental staff is very welcoming, personable and knowledgeable. Some people have anxiety when they go to the dentist and most of the stories I hear it’s because they’ve had a bad experience with their cleanings. I can say when I get my teeth cleaned, etc…Brittany has the touch of an angel. Merit Dental is great!

We have been patients of Dr. Austin now for several years. We have always enjoyed his professionalism and of course his awesome staff especially his front desk receptionist/office manager. We look forward to going to the dentist!

My kids and I have been going there for a few years and they are awesome. They are like family. Every experience inspite of what was being done has been great and very professional. My 7 year old even likes going to the dentist now. To anyone that is looking for a dentist for what ever reason I would strongly recommend them. Wonderful staff and dentists.

If you are looking for a dental group that will give a full service visit I recommend Dr. David Austin and his staff. They are professional, friendly, and trained to inform you on step by step procedures, also will recommend the best tooth paste and mouth wash for your dental up keep. The office and staff is clean and offers a pleasant atmosphere.

Outstanding service! In recent years, I have had some bad experiences with Dentist. From my first conversation with Dr. Austin, I felt at ease. the professionalism shown by his staff was phenomenal. Katie, Cindy and Dr. Austin made my first trip to their office comfortable. I will certainly refer my family and friends to Merit Dental.

Dr. Austin and staff performed excellently. I was able to schedule with no problem. The dental care provided was seamless with no issues. The office staff was open and very professional, I had a question concerning my bill and they addressed it quickly without question. Thanks Dr. Austin and staff!

Dr Austin and his staff are one of a kind. The staff are friendly and gentle. Will let you know what will happen at the office. In addition, help you understand how to take care of you teeth at home. Help me understand the right way to floss. All of this happen before you see Dr. Austin. When Dr. Austin comes in he goes open the X-Rays and let you know how to have better dental health. Dr. Austin was able to put me on a whiting program and other people can see the difference. Great doctor and staff!!!!

I really liked Dr. Austin and his staff. I thought they were friendly, thorough and gentle. It was very well run and organized and the ladies that ran the front desk were super nice. Also I was a little chilly and the doctor came out with a blanket for me while I waited on my daughter. Now that is service. Next time I will ask for a foot rub..haha!

Dr. Austin costs a little more, but he is gentle (good for all of us cowards), and his work is top-notch. If you're looking for a dentist for whatever reason, here he is--right on Eden Drive. Perhaps if you live in Florida this might be too far to drive; however, no one else lives so far that this drive wouldn't be well worth it.
