I have been going here for 40 years, and it is the best dental office around. Now that I am retired and moved 40 miles away I still make the drive to go to this office. It is an 1:40 min drive (one way) but it is worth it. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I had my 6 month cleaning today and had a visiting Hygienist named Jen G. She was exceptional, professional, and very personal. I hope they have her back again when I return in August. I am a long time patients and my hygienist retired recently. Thank you Lori and Jen.

I've been going to Merit dental for years now, and it has always been a good experience. The hygienist and dentists there are knowledgeable and kind and will let you know how to improve your oral health. Receptionist is very kind also, great place!

Greatest dentist ever!!! I began going to merit dental in 1989. Dr vanderbeek and dr killinger were beginning their dental careers. Now dr. Vanderbeek has handpicked 2 new dentists to write the next chapter and they are wonderful.

I saw Tammy for my 6 month hygiene appointment. She is incredibly thorough and explained to me everything I was doing and how I could improve my homecare. I left with a positive outlook on dentistry and felt more comfortable in the chair!

After being told that I needed a crown on one of my lower left for awhile I decided in early March to begin the process. The tooth wasn't bothering me but felt that it was inevitable. The temporary was put on and then within a few days Covid hit. Permanent crown put in around june. Shortly after I complained of swelling on my cheek below my left eye and pain. Most every visit involved some type of cleaning that I was told that my insurance company covers before I was seen for the actual reason why I made the appointment. I called for a appointment because after being on antibiotics for the swelling the first time, one night I developed a bubble on my upper gums. Gross! I slightly touched it and it burst! I'll spare you the details. I went to the appointment thinking that they knew why I was there. Apparently not. I was given a deep cleaning before the dr. even saw me. Dr said that I need a root canal. I scheduled at the front desk. I went to the appointment, there was a gathering of staffers....guess what! All of my dental insurance has been extinguished for the year. Apparently all of the cleanings were not annual maintenance. I needed to pay $650 out of pocket Now! I've been in pain for months, thankfully I have a credit card to put it on so I agree. Dr. Started preparing to do a root canal. Shortly after stopped and said that we need to talk. The tooth was cracked in half and it was pulled. Monetary $150 out of pocket. Meanwhile I saw a oral surgeon for a biopsy today. Biopsy unnecessary (never seen or received any med

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.

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.

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.

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.

After being told that I needed a crown on one of my lower left for awhile I decided in early March to begin the process. The tooth wasn't bothering me but felt that it was inevitable. The temporary was put on and then within a few days Covid hit. Permanent crown put in around june. Shortly after I complained of swelling on my cheek below my left eye and pain. Most every visit involved some type of cleaning that I was told that my insurance company covers before I was seen for the actual reason why I made the appointment. I called for a appointment because after being on antibiotics for the swelling the first time, one night I developed a bubble on my upper gums. Gross! I slightly touched it and it burst! I'll spare you the details. I went to the appointment thinking that they knew why I was there. Apparently not. I was given a deep cleaning before the dr. even saw me. Dr said that I need a root canal. I scheduled at the front desk. I went to the appointment, there was a gathering of staffers....guess what! All of my dental insurance has been extinguished for the year. Apparently all of the cleanings were not annual maintenance. I needed to pay $650 out of pocket Now! I've been in pain for months, thankfully I have a credit card to put it on so I agree. Dr. Started preparing to do a root canal. Shortly after stopped and said that we need to talk.

The temporary was put on and then within a few days Covid hit. Permanent crown put in around june. Shortly after I complained of swelling on my cheek below my left eye and pain. Most every visit involved some type of cleaning that I was told that my insurance company covers before I was seen for the actual reason why I made the appointment. I called for a appointment because after being on antibiotics for the swelling the first time, one night I developed a bubble on my upper gums. Gross! I slightly touched it and it burst! I'll spare you the details. I went to the appointment thinking that they knew why I was there. Apparently not. I was given a deep cleaning before the dr. even saw me. Dr said that I need a root canal. I scheduled at the front desk. I went to the appointment, there was a gathering of staffers....guess what! All of my dental insurance has been extinguished for the year. Apparently all of the cleanings were not annual maintenance. I needed to pay $650 out of pocket Now! I've been in pain for months, thankfully I have a credit card to put it on so I agree. Dr. Started preparing to do a root canal. Shortly after stopped and said that we need to talk. The tooth was cracked in half and it was pulled. Monetary $150 out of pocket. Meanwhile I saw a oral surgeon for a biopsy today. Biopsy unnecessary (never seen or received any med

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great dentists and staff. Scheduling time is not easy. I have to wait for 1 month to have a tooth fixed because of their schedule not mine.

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.

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.

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!
