My experience was great! My children were both nervous to go to a new dentist, and afraid that it would be a bad experience. However, they both loved it, and were very happy with their experience! I loved how polite the staff was. They informed me of how my children's check ups went, and answered my questions/concerns!

I switched from another local dentist in Fall 2018, and so far, I have had examinations, cleanings, a reference to an orthodontist and a periodontist, and discussion of planning for future treatment. My experience has been excellent. The staff, from front office to dental techs to Dr. Barfuss are all highly professional and personable. (The "sisters" Tonia and Paula are great at their jobs.) The office staff works diligently with me to ensure all paperwork and insurance issues are handled promptly with the best possible outcome for me. Dr. Barfuss takes the time to answer all questions thoroughly. The waiting room, office and examination rooms are all immaculate, as is all of the equipment. I'm very happy with my dental care at Merit Dental of Blairsville. Bruce

The best dentist office I have been to! I have been going for a few years and I haven't had anything but positive experiences. Paula is super friendly and helpful. And the Dentist is very knowledgeable and is willing to talk to the patient about any concerns they may have.

The facility was very inviting. They dentist did require an x ray that was not covered by my insurance. She explained that it was necessary for her to do any kind of exam, cleaning or treatment at all of my teeth. I did extensive research on the x ray she was asking for. It is not necessarily at all! To education others this is expensive you do not need to pay and over time over exposer to radiation from x rays in general are harmful. Save yourself the time, money and most importantly your health go some place else!

I just brought my daughter there for her cleaning. Tonia did an awesome job cleaning her teeth and my daughter really took a liking to her. The doctor was very sweet and thorough. We had a great experience and will definitely be going back!

I called on Thursday for an emergency appointment. One of my molars chipped out and left the exposed root which was causing me lots of pain. The receptionist got me in on Tuesday for 12pm. I was in and out within 45 minutes and the root was pulled. My dental insurance normally charges $50 copays, but they didn't ask for a dime at the office! I am so pleased with everyone here. They are friendly, accommodating, and great to deal with! I wouldn't recommend anyone else.

I have always been a coward when it comes to seeing the dentist. It does not matter if it's just for a cleaning. It's to the point I throw up. Last week I came in to get work done and I couldn't have been happier. All of the employees were very welcoming. And the doctor totally understood my fear. She was so good I didn't even know she had already given me the shot of novicane. She was amazing I would recommend anyone

I am thrilled to have found Dr. Losco and his team! He is a wonderful dentist and everyone in the office is friendly! I never enjoyed going to the dentist, but now I don't mind. Everyone is courteous and polite, and nonjudgmental. Also the office is SO clean!! I switched my 14 year old son over to Dr. Losco (he had to have 4 teeth extracted to get his braces, and was really nervous), and he loved him. I recommend if you are searching for a new dentist, give Dr. Losco a call. I am glad I did.

In my life I have been to close to 10 dentist. Some places were too old school. Just a room and no technology. Other places too futuristic to where it seemed Gimmicky. Merit Dental has an excellent Dentist in Dr Losco. Behind him is a team of very friendly professionals. His office is nice and open, it feels really comfortable to be in there. The receptionist is nice and knowledgeable. The hygienist is top notch. The Dr and his Techs will make sure you are comfortable during your stay and they will give you impeccable care. After my first visit I made sure I got my wife in there so we are both patients. I did this because I have been around many dentists and I know by far this is the best place around. I was referred to this place by a doctor and I couldn't be happier. If your looking for a dentist this is the first place you should try. Highly recommended by me and my wife.

I really didn't like to go to the dentist because of past experiences. Dr. Losco helped me get over that fear. He is friendly and a well seasoned dentist, as well as his staff. I would difinitely recommend him to any one who has a fear of the dentist or if you just want a regular dentist.
