Let's face it. No one likes going to the dentist. And I'm sure we've all had at least one bad experience sitting in the dentist's chair. But I can attest to the service received here and rate it an A+. They realize this is MY mouth they're poking around in and treat it as such. Explain everything, genuine concern over my comfort both physically and mentally while they conduct their very professional work and suggest oral hygiene methods to promote a healthy routine to practice on a daily basis. Finding all this in a dentist's office isn't easy. Buy if you visit Merit your search has ended.

Dr. Miller is awesome! I went it for a new crown prep, and she is SUPER nice, gentle, and had a perfect "pace" with no rushing, yet stayed on time with each step of the procedure. Very amazing Dentist. Also, her Assistant that day was also perfect (sorry I forgot her name). Anyway my first time with Dr. Miller was a pleasant and stress-free experience.

Brian S.H.

Dec 27, 2018

I just got back from having a new temporary crown put on. Looks fantastic for being a temporary but the amazing thing is that my old temporary broke on Christmas and Dr. Miller was able to get me in less than 48 hours later. Taking into consideration that it’s the holiday season and their office was closed on the 26th, I am amazed at how quick I was called back and fit in the next business day. On a sidenote, this is my first procedure besides a cleaning with Dr. Miller who had replaced my previous retired dentist. She may be just starting out in her career, but don’t let that fool you. She works with the professionalism, genuine care and concern, and skill of a doctor who has been practicing for decades. No offense to the other doctors at Merit ( who all are great), but she is in a class of it’s own. Thank you so much to the staff at Merit Dental Waterford and have a merry Christmas and happy new year

Dr. Miller and all the staff at Merit Dental are kind, helpful and compassionate. I have some anxiety receiving dental work, and have not been to the dentist in years due to no health insurance. My two front teeth needed crowns placed. After reading a few reviews on Merit Dental, I decided to make an appointment for myself. I went in a total of four times, and every time was great. Between Melody, the receptionist, being extremely helpful answers any and all questions I had; And Dr. Miller and all her staff having patience and taking their time to make me feel comfortable. Dr. Miller and her staff never rush, and make sure your needs are completely taken care of. Dr. Miller is truly a caring dentist, and I think she has found a patient for life. Oh, and my teeth look absolutely beautiful.

After over 2 years with no dental insurance and absess teeth pain, I finially got a Dental plan in 2018. My teeth flared up in February. I had more trouble with the Insurance and finding a dentist, than I did getting in to Merit Dental, antibiotics, and getting the teeth pulled. I was very happy with this clinic and everyone that worked there. 5 ?

I had a great experience today. I was seen by Dr. Miller. She very compassionate and caring doctor. This was going to be my last time as a patient at Merit Dental, I moved away 4 years ago and I decided to find some place closer to my home. After today I’ve changed my mind I’ll continue to drive 30 minutes. Also all the people who work there are great.

I've gone to Dr. VanderBeek for years. He's the best! I highly recommend him. Also, Lori can't be beat!

Scott Craig

Dec 23, 2015

I've been a regular customer/patient of Dr. VanderBeek and Dr. Killinger for around 10 to 15 years and have been very pleased with both of them and their staff. At first I was nervous about the switch from a local dentist (same dentists operating independently) to a business with multiple office locations, but I have grown fond of reminders at just the right time via text messages. They don't do anything that's not necessary, are very open and honest about anything they determine - sometimes with multiple options to choose from, and when I've needed a referral to an oral surgeon or an endodontist, I've felt like they've done a lot of research to find the perfect one as I compare notes with friends who went elsewhere.

I started with Merit Dental in Waterford in June, 2015 And I have a allergy to latex and it is really bad. If I get around latex I have a Epi-Pen to help till I get to the hospital and I end up on life support. But they took care of everything. They even had a Epi-Pen out just in case. Everything went fine but I feel like they really cared and took good care of me.

Rachael Downs

Wonderful! I've been going here since I was little and had many things done such as retainers, caps, flippers, and bridges. Staff is always friendly, hygienists know what they're doing, and the dentists work with you. You also don't have to wait long for your appointment. Well done guys!

But I can attest to the service received here and rate it an A+. They realize this is MY mouth they're poking around in and treat it as such. Explain everything, genuine concern over my comfort both physically and mentally while they conduct their very professional work and suggest oral hygiene methods to promote a healthy routine to practice on a daily basis. Finding all this in a dentist's office isn't easy. Buy if you visit Merit your search has ended.

Dr. Miller is awesome! I went it for a new crown prep, and she is SUPER nice, gentle, and had a perfect "pace" with no rushing, yet stayed on time with each step of the procedure. Very amazing Dentist. Also, her Assistant that day was also perfect (sorry I forgot her name). Anyway my first time with Dr. Miller was a pleasant and stress-free experience.

I just got back from having a new temporary crown put on. Looks fantastic for being a temporary but the amazing thing is that my old temporary broke on Christmas and Dr. Miller was able to get me in less than 48 hours later. Taking into consideration that it’s the holiday season and their office was closed on the 26th, I am amazed at how quick I was called back and fit in the next business day. On a sidenote, this is my first procedure besides a cleaning with Dr. Miller who had replaced my previous retired dentist. She may be just starting out in her career, but don’t let that fool you. She works with the professionalism, genuine care and concern, and skill of a doctor who has been practicing for decades. No offense to the other doctors at Merit ( who all are great), but she is in a class of it’s own. Thank you so much to the staff at Merit Dental Waterford and have a merry Christmas and happy new year

Dr. Miller and all the staff at Merit Dental are kind, helpful and compassionate. I have some anxiety receiving dental work, and have not been to the dentist in years due to no health insurance. My two front teeth needed crowns placed. After reading a few reviews on Merit Dental, I decided to make an appointment for myself. I went in a total of four times, and every time was great. Between Melody, the receptionist, being extremely helpful answers any and all questions I had; And Dr. Miller and all her staff having patience and taking their time to make me feel comfortable. Dr. Miller and her staff never rush, and make sure your needs are completely taken care of. Dr. Miller is truly a caring dentist, and I think she has found a patient for life. Oh, and my teeth look absolutely beautiful.

After over 2 years with no dental insurance and absess teeth pain, I finially got a Dental plan in 2018. My teeth flared up in February. I had more trouble with the Insurance and finding a dentist, than I did getting in to Merit Dental, antibiotics, and getting the teeth pulled. I was very happy with this clinic and everyone that worked there. 5 ?

I had a great experience today. I was seen by Dr. Miller. She very compassionate and caring doctor. This was going to be my last time as a patient at Merit Dental, I moved away 4 years ago and I decided to find some place closer to my home. After today I’ve changed my mind I’ll continue to drive 30 minutes. Also all the people who work there are great.

Scott Craig

Dec 23, 2015

I've been a regular customer/patient of Dr. VanderBeek and Dr. Killinger for around 10 to 15 years and have been very pleased with both of them and their staff. At first I was nervous about the switch from a local dentist (same dentists operating independently) to a business with multiple office locations, but I have grown fond of reminders at just the right time via text messages. They don't do anything that's not necessary, are very open and honest about anything they determine - sometimes with multiple options to choose from, and when I've needed a referral to an oral surgeon or an endodontist, I've felt like they've done a lot of research to find the perfect one as I compare notes with friends who went elsewhere.

D. Jo Ann Klos

I started with Merit Dental in Waterford in June, 2015 And I have a allergy to latex and it is really bad. If I get around latex I have a Epi-Pen to help till I get to the hospital and I end up on life support. But they took care of everything. They even had a Epi-Pen out just in case. Everything went fine but I feel like they really cared and took good care of me.

Rachael Downs

Wonderful! I've been going here since I was little and had many things done such as retainers, caps, flippers, and bridges. Staff is always friendly, hygienists know what they're doing, and the dentists work with you. You also don't have to wait long for your appointment. Well done guys!
