Wrote raving review 5 months ago... Now a 1 star. Had a filling pop off. Set appointment right away. Went in for missing filling left with a onlay. Paid $713 out of pocket because they were out of network. Had no idea there would be more to pay. 5 months later being asked for another $621. Should of found somewhere in network and less money hungry. Should of just replaced the filling. That's what you get for trusting...Don't make the same mistake I did.

I have been coming here for many many years. Dr Thomas has been outstanding, but more importantly, stands behind his work. I'm the type of person w the odds against me if in a situation where something could go either way. With my last root canal, he was a man of his word and did right by me. You usually don't come across this type of loyalty with anyone in the medical field honoring this type of character. Another highpoint is the one stop crown installment as opposed to return appts for fittings and temporaries. The staff is ever so nice and happy to see you walk in. I always look forward to the paraffin wax hand bath, the warm neckroll, and enjoy watching a movie during a long treatment. It keeps your mind off of what is going on. Yes, I would definately recommend Merit Dental in Strongsville, OH!

I am a hard patient to work with due to anxiety at the dds. The ladies did a great job keeping me comfy and getting the extensive work done quickly. I was impressed!

My last appointment was a 'Crown' procedure on my upper molor. As usual, the support staff was exceptional. Dr. Mario made the whole experience, lighthearted and very pleasant! Thanks again to everyone @ 5 Points Dentistry!

I had extensive work done in one visit. The staff and doctor made me feel really comfortable. It was the most pleasant dentist appointment I’ve ever had. The staff is really professional and do excellent work. This will be my dentist office from now on.

I was not a client yet and they saw me me the same day after I broke one of my crowns. They were all very friendly and professional. They made me a believer. "Kudos" to the Five Points Dentistry Team.

Going to Five Points Dentistry is just like a day at the spa! The cleaning is very relaxing and non-abrasive. The staff is super friendly! I highly recommend Five Points to anyone, especially those who have had bad experiences with other dentists in the past. Five Points will show you how a dentist visit should be! They excel in their craft! Thanks, Dr. Mario & Dr. Tom! Our family loves our visits!

I have been a patient at Five Points Dentistry since they opened their office in Strongsville. The staff is wonderful! Everyone makes you feel like family. The atmosphere is clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend Five Points.

I have never been to a dental practice and thought, "Wow, that was an enjoyable experience," until I began going to Five Points Dentistry. The staff was patient, kind and listened to your needs. They did a great job on making you feel welcome while explaining their process. They did a thorough job. I highly recommend this dentistry.

July 2018 update: I'm still coming here, and I'm still happy as ever. The staff is incredibly friendly, as are all three dentists. The hygienists here are absolutely fantastic, and the one I always see is no exception. I couldn't speak highly enough of a dentist office, and I genuinely credit them for being a large part in helping me rid myself of my dentist anxiety. Very glad a place like this is in business. ------ Original review from 2013: I have had nothing but positive experiences here. I started off with severe dental anxiety my first visit, but they treated me very well (even with as much of a wuss as I was being). I was referred to an amazing surgeon for my wisdom teeth by Dr. Pavicic, and have been coming here ever since for all of my dental work. They are always on the spot to call you when they say they will. I've never had a problem with the dentist's work, and they're always quick and professional. I could not recommend them more.

Been going to this practice since it opened. I love how friendly and respectful the staff is of my time and dental needs. And I really love the paraffin hand treatments I get (for free!) during my teeth cleaning. Even after moving in the opposite direction, I still travel over 30 minutes to stay with Five Points! Sara is the best hygienist too!

I recently visited Five Points Dentistry and had a pleasant experience. A small part of my bridge broke off and Doctor Rocco fixed it to that I would not have a sharp edge on the tooth. The appointment was within 2 days of discovering the problem and it was fixed within an hour of arriving at the office. Thank you.

Great experience here! I’m used to old school teeth cleaning using the pick and tools. At Five Points, they use a water pick. Not as good as I’d like, but the wonderful staff, atmosphere and service makes up for that.

Love Five Points Dentistry! It’s so relaxing getting a paraphin wax and a warm neck towel. Staci and the rest of the staff is warm and friendly and Dr. Thomas is a hoot! Also, I’ve never seen kids so excited to go to the dentist. There is so much for them!

Lee Beuther

My most recent visit was for a routine cleaning and checkup. As usual, the visit was pleasant and relaxing, more like a spa visit than a dentist appt. For the first time in my life, I don't dread dental visits! Smiles all around, and an extremely efficient staff.

Everything about Five Points is outstanding. From the decor and creature comforts in their waiting room to the friendly, competent, and professional staff. Everything is state of the art as far as equipment. The care we receive actually feels like caring. There was never that hurried, assembly line feeling to their service.

Being a nurse with experience you get to recognize and admire the skill sets of others and how they interact with each other and build on their skill levels the precision and attention to details is remarkable all the while attending to your comfort. Frequent check ups is key to keeping a smile into your old age (there I said it) I have to work at my smile with prevention intervention on my part and they take care of the rest from crowns, to root canals it's all there.

Excellent dental office. Excellent customer service. Love the Cerec crown option...they perform all services in the office in ONE (1) visit. No taking molds and waiting for the crown to be made and shipped back only to have to come back at another time. They mill the crown specific for you in office...only a couple of hours of your time!

Makes you comfortable. A warm rice pillow is given to you. Also able to watch TV. I watched and listened to the Tribe while 3 cavities were being filled. It was also a painless procedure. Plenty of Novacaine. Dr Jessica did a great job.

I've been going to Five Points Dentistry for well over 10 years now and have had nothing but outstanding service each and every visit! The staff is so friendly and helpful. Dr Mario is amazing and very caring! First class service in a down to earth, friendly office! How can you go wrong?

World class patient care and technology! It is apparent that every single staff member loves their job and truly cares about making each patient have an exceptional experience. From understanding insurance to preventative health concerns, Five Points is big on patient education which I absolutely loved. The office is all very up to date in terms of the latest equipment as well as all the little details to make a nervous patient comfortable and relaxed. I will be a patient for life!

I used to be petrified of going to the dentist, as I had a dentist who used no novocain for small or large cavities and I also had a lot of orthodontic and oral surgeries. I now look forward to going to the dentist thanks to this wonderful staff at Five Points! They are all so personable, gentle yet very efficient and professional. They are up front about costs and procedures and seem to genuinely care about every patient. Their exams are extremely thorough (oral cancer, etc.) And the water system they use for cleaning your teeth--the best thing since sliced bread! They have all of the latest and greatest tools that make all of the difference. They even offer free water and juices while you wait and offer a heated neck pillow while they work on you! Hi praises for Five Points!

I have never had such a wonderful experience at any dental office EVER!!! The staff went above and beyond even before I had my first appointment (Thanks Jessica) They were kind, professional, and showed genuine concern in helping me recover from my previous dental experience.

Five Points Dentistry is a full service dentist! You know you are getting the best & most up to date dental evaluation & care. No need to be nervous about going to the dentist. You can have a heated neck wrap, a paraffin hand treatment all while watching your own personal TV. If that isn't enough the hygienist will put you at ease. Dr. Tom Thomas & Dr. Mario Pavicic experience is second to none & your whole family is in good hands with them.
