Dr. Childers is a very capable dentist and a nice lady, who quickly and accurately found a crack in my tooth. Not that I was happy that I cracked my tooth.

I have been going to Five Points Dentistry for at least 15 years and I had a nice relationship with my hygienist, I was surprised to find when they made their changes, the staff had changed as well. Fortunately, the dentists remain the same. I hope the quality of care remains as well.

The appointment was quick but thorough which has always been my experience at Five Points Dentistry. Had some extra questions about wisdom teeth removal and Dr. Thomas gave me his opinion and also a referral to an oral surgeon for a consultation.

Although a 20 minute wait is not bad and normal with other medical providers, I was disappointed in the delayed start time for my teeth cleaning and x-rays, which was acknowledge by your staff. I have not had to wait like this for my regularly scheduled appointments in the past. No big deal, but since you are asking, there it is.

Your dental office has a clean, fresh new waiting area with clean seats and great fish tank. The kids area is so thoughtful and just what they need - very well done. But, as always it's the people behind the desk that make the real difference and you have some of the nicest employees to greet customers. Big warm smiles, well dressed, and ready to service ny dental needs. Very well done. My dental technician also greet me with a wonderful greeting and the first thing she ask me is "would you like a neck war

Great location and office staff as well as personable hygienists and dentists. Only have had cleanings. Like the painless cleaning without scraping. Dentists do not push procedures on you that are not needed such as night guards, whitening, braces etc. These products and procedures are available however for those looking for them.

Angie is the best hygienist. Very thorough and fun to interact with. Dr. Pavesic, all the doctors and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. They thoroughly explain procedures and the details of any problem that you may have. They work to prevent future problems. I would recommend Merit dental to anyone.

Good morning everyone at Merit Dental/Five Points Dentistry. Thank you for your kindness last week when I came in with a bad toothache. Everyone was so concerned and took such good care of me. Dr. Mario was once again outstanding and so very patient. It helps that he looks just like my brother in Iowa. From the minute I walked in until I left you made me feel like I was the only patient you had to care for when I knew you fit me into your busy schedule. Thank you for your care and concern. P.S. I am
