First time going there today and I am very impressed and happy. Such friendly staff and very caring. You can tell they care about their patients. Very informative too which I love. I never had such great service at a dentist office. I am glad I went.

Would not recommend going here. This place is nothing like it was when Dr. Marcucci was the dentist. He knew you and did not push for procedures that were unnecessary. They refused to re-glue a crown. The crown was not broken and the tooth in question was not causing any pain. Instead they suggested a $3000 or $6000 procedure They are all about money not about customer service.

— Hi L, Thank you for your feedback. We'd like to improve and make your next visit an exceptional one. If you'd like to provide us any additional details, please contact us directly at lorain@meritdental.com.

Amazing staff, super friendly and genuinely care for you. Dr. Shaughnessy is hands down the best! I no longer dread going to the dentist and being in pain. If you have anxiety from a bad experience like me, they truly understand and take all concerns seriously. Also, the hygienist Rebecca is beyond friendly and very gentle while cleaning. I will never go to another dentist!

Procrastinated too long making excuses not to go to the dentist but with a broken front tooth I was forced. Like most people I dreaded getting nummed up and drilled but I was pleasantly surprised at how dentistry has changed in just the few years I boycotted it. Got a new crown and the dentist and assistant could not of been friendlier and efficient. I actually look forward to my next visit. I highly recommend Merit Dental in Lorain.

— Thank you for your review. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us.

Excellent care. I came in here to get my 14 k white golds on my fangs in my mouth and they were so cool about it. No judgement. Nothing but "we do these crowns all the time. We can't wait to get started." What a blessing from the front desk clerk's to Tanya the dental assistant to the actual doctor himself. I highly recommend them. I'm well pleased ? shinin : ) ?

I have been going to this Dentist office for over 20 yrs. Always friendly and reasonable ! The hygienist is the best,when she was out for awhile I sure did miss her, I waited till she came back to work ! The front desk workers are up to date with Insurance and help you with paper work and let you know what insurance will pay and your copay ! Very helpful !

Merit Dental called me last week for me to reschedule my appointment which was fine with me. I'm getting married at the end of this month and I had my appointment set up for before I get married. I spoke with Steve over the phone in discussion with finding a day still before I get married that would work and every time I spoke or said something he would laugh at me. He did this several time and I ended up calling later and cancelled my appointment that I made. Horrible customer service and am not coming back. I was so frustrated and mad.

I had not gone in for regular dental check-ups for at least a year, due to Covid, so when I returned to Merit Dental in Lorain this week, I was a bit apprehensive. Everyone, from the receptionist to the hygienist Rebecca and dentist Dr. Matthew Shaughnessy, worked their magic and put me at ease. They are not only professional, but they take the time to listen to your concerns.

Great dental office, started going to Merit Dental a couple years ago, after trying to find a good dentist, I went to Merit and have been going back ever since.

I'm retired without Dental insurance. Merit offered a great initial service package for exam, full x-rays and cleaning in my first appointment on 3-January.. All elements of their service was of highest quality and detail: cleaning, dentist's exam and x-rays. Ashley even mentioned Merit is looking into a dental discount program for uninsured customers at a nominal annual cost. It was mentioned that program might be available as soon as late March, so I am very interest in that Merit option, when available for my wife and myself.

First let me say I am not a fan of the Dentist as I am sure many are not but I can tell you with the service and the education on good dental hygiene I received from Merit Dental I am a regular maintenance and repair patient. They are very accommodating and are sincerely concerned with your well being. I have had to visit them on both an emergency visit and preventive maintenance visit and every time they have made me feel like I was their only client at that time. They make you feel like family.

I was in between jobs and insurance co. when I got this horrible toothache. a lot of dentists wouldn't even see me because I had no insurance. Merit told me that they could see me that same day. I'm glad I went there the whole staff from the girls at the front desk to dentist himself were super friendly. Dr. Shaughnessy went over all my options and took care of the problem right away. I highly recommend this place to anyone who needs a dentist!

I am so impressed with this dentist office! All the staff are super friendly and did not make me feel even the slightest bit self conscious even with all the work I needed done. Dr. Matt Shaughnessy thoroughly explained everything recommended various options for a dental plan and the associated costs. The woman at the front desk was very knowledgeable and able to break up my dental plan procedures to maximize my insurance. I am so happy I came here and would recommend this dentist to everyone in Lorain County!

I have been going to the Lorain office for many years and have always been satisfied with both the hygienists and the dentists I have had. The other thing that is important is the appointment time - never had to wait more than 5 minutes to be treated.

Not too many people can say they are ok with going to the dentist but I can. I feel they take exceptional care of my teeth and do a great job explaining what to expect. I am in the service industry and take great pride in the service my business offers and when I look at the care given by Merit Dental I can definitely say they hold the same standards that I do, they truly care about their patients.

I was terrified of the dentist until I came here. Because of the team there (especially my hygienist Rebecca) I will not go anywhere else. They changed everything for me. If I could give them 10 stars I would.

I'm retired without Dental insurance. Merit offered a great initial service package for exam, full x-rays and cleaning in my first appointment on 3-January.. All elements of their service was of highest quality and detail: cleaning, dentist's exam and x-rays. Ashley even mentioned Merit is looking into a dental discount program for uninsured customers at a nominal annual cost. It was mentioned that program might be available as soon as late March, so I am very interest in that Merit option, when available for my wife and myself.

First let me say I am not a fan of the Dentist as I am sure many are not but I can tell you with the service and the education on good dental hygiene I received from Merit Dental I am a regular maintenance and repair patient. They are very accommodating and are sincerely concerned with your well being. I have had to visit them on both an emergency visit and preventive maintenance visit and every time they have made me feel like I was their only client at that time. They make you feel like family.

I was in between jobs and insurance co. when I got this horrible toothache. a lot of dentists wouldn't even see me because I had no insurance. Merit told me that they could see me that same day. I'm glad I went there the whole staff from the girls at the front desk to dentist himself were super friendly. Dr. Shaughnessy went over all my options and took care of the problem right away. I highly recommend this place to anyone who needs a dentist!

I am so impressed with this dentist office! All the staff are super friendly and did not make me feel even the slightest bit self conscious even with all the work I needed done. Dr. Matt Shaughnessy thoroughly explained everything recommended various options for a dental plan and the associated costs. The woman at the front desk was very knowledgeable and able to break up my dental plan procedures to maximize my insurance. I am so happy I came here and would recommend this dentist to everyone in Lorain County!

I have been going to the Lorain office for many years and have always been satisfied with both the hygienists and the dentists I have had. The other thing that is important is the appointment time - never had to wait more than 5 minutes to be treated.

Not too many people can say they are ok with going to the dentist but I can. I feel they take exceptional care of my teeth and do a great job explaining what to expect. I am in the service industry and take great pride in the service my business offers and when I look at the care given by Merit Dental I can definitely say they hold the same standards that I do, they truly care about their patients.

Would not recommend going here. This place is nothing like it was when Dr. Marcucci was the dentist. He knew you and did not push for procedures that were unnecessary. They refused to re-glue a crown. The crown was not broken and the tooth in question was not causing any pain. Instead they suggested a $3000 or $6000 procedure They are all about money not about customer service.

— Hi L, Thank you for your feedback. We'd like to improve and make your next visit an exceptional one. If you'd like to provide us any additional details, please contact us directly at lorain@meritdental.com.

Amazing staff, super friendly and genuinely care for you. Dr. Shaughnessy is hands down the best! I no longer dread going to the dentist and being in pain. If you have anxiety from a bad experience like me, they truly understand and take all concerns seriously. Also, the hygienist Rebecca is beyond friendly and very gentle while cleaning. I will never go to another dentist!

Procrastinated too long making excuses not to go to the dentist but with a broken front tooth I was forced. Like most people I dreaded getting nummed up and drilled but I was pleasantly surprised at how dentistry has changed in just the few years I boycotted it. Got a new crown and the dentist and assistant could not of been friendlier and efficient. I actually look forward to my next visit. I highly recommend Merit Dental in Lorain.

— Thank you for your review. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us.

Excellent care. I came in here to get my 14 k white golds on my fangs in my mouth and they were so cool about it. No judgement. Nothing but "we do these crowns all the time. We can't wait to get started." What a blessing from the front desk clerk's to Tanya the dental assistant to the actual doctor himself. I highly recommend them. I'm well pleased ? shinin : ) ?

The front desk workers are up to date with Insurance and help you with paper work and let you know what insurance will pay and your copay ! Very helpful !

Merit Dental called me last week for me to reschedule my appointment which was fine with me. I'm getting married at the end of this month and I had my appointment set up for before I get married. I spoke with Steve over the phone in discussion with finding a day still before I get married that would work and every time I spoke or said something he would laugh at me. He did this several time and I ended up calling later and cancelled my appointment that I made. Horrible customer service and am not coming back. I was so frustrated and mad.

I had not gone in for regular dental check-ups for at least a year, due to Covid, so when I returned to Merit Dental in Lorain this week, I was a bit apprehensive. Everyone, from the receptionist to the hygienist Rebecca and dentist Dr. Matthew Shaughnessy, worked their magic and put me at ease. They are not only professional, but they take the time to listen to your concerns.
