Dr's Tina and Nick were fantastic, gentle, communicative, attentive. Melissa operates a tight ship, and Kimmie and all the other staff are professional, friendly and attentive. I gave a 4 out of 5 only because there's always room for improvement...:)

I left this dental practice after 20 plus years. I was treated horribly by the new office manager, Melissa. Dr. Nick is a great dentist. However, the first person you come In contact with is the receptionist, or In this case the office manager. She said she is a "one man show."

Hygienists are fine, the administration side of this place is awful. My entire visit should always be covered yet I receive bills that I dont actually have to pay. Also, due to covid, everyone is being charged a $12 ppe fee. Delta dental insurance only covers $10...which leaves you with a $2 bill. Not exactly going to break the bank, just an inconvenience. If anything, start charging $10. If you want to profit off having to use hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, just charge $10. Hygienists have always been wearing gloves, face shields and masks. PPE has always been a part of dentistry. Mouths are disgusting. Hygienists and dentists have always had to be cautious. Stop pretending anything changed.

My small daughter and I I've been going to Merit Dental for a couple years now. It is one of the friendliest places that we have ever went and each time a procedure is needed the both of us walk away pain free and completely satisfied. I have never heard eveni people enjoying the dentist as much as my daughter does. It is well worth a visit.

I don't usually write reviews.......... However, Dr. Nick and his staff deserve a few words of praise for the high level of excellence that they demonstrated to me during three recent visits. From the initial cleaning, X-rays, and exam, to several needed repairs, to an old crown replacement, I felt that I was absolutely in the hands of the finest, and most caring group of Dental Professionals that I have ever met............... I am sooooo pleased to have found you. Merit Dental............... You have this customer for life!!!

Great first time office experience. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff helped us feel comfortable as new patients who had not seen a dentist in some time. My wife, Debbie has been telling family members and friends all about the great experience she had at the dentist! We had no dental insurance, but we were provided a coupon that helped with the charges for both the initial exam, which included a set of full mouth x-rays and an extensive cleaning and fluoride treatment! We both agree it was a great decision to begin our relationship with Dr. Nick Hartranft and his staff. We look forward to continuing that relationship into the future.

Saw 'Dr. Nick' for the second time yesterday on an 'emergency' appointment. Great dentist! My first appointment was for a 'cap' (visit yesterday was unrelated). The atmosphere of the office hasn't changed with the changing of dentists. Still the same great place to come to have your teeth fixed or cleaned. And the staff is as friendly as ever.

My name is Jeffrey Gemberling. After over a dozen visits, I have never had the personal attention and friendless that I have come to expect and appreciate than I have here. Dr. Nick spends time and explains each detail with great understanding. His staff is both professional and go above and beyond to educate me through my process. I even take my 4 year old with me each visit and she looks forward to seeing all the same faces and know by name. No other dental facility comes close to this team. We love them.

Today was the first time I've been to the dentist since Dr. Lazur retired. My appointment was for 12:30. The receptionist told me they had just taken in the 11:00. Nice of her to let me know, but why wasn't I called before I made the 25 minute trip?

To me, this is definitely the most experienced dental office in the area. I have been going there for 40 years and am proud to say that I finally found a dentist that I trust. Dr. Lazur was super and brought me through all of my fears and built a wonderful relationship with each other. I trusted him with his replacement with Dr. Nick who I know will follow in his foot steps. Everyone at Merit Dental is super and caring. I highly recommend anyone looking for a dentist to go there. I won't go anywhere else and thanks to them, I still have my own teeth. Thank you Merit Dental and staff.

I have a lot of respect for Dr Lazur's skills and am sorry to see him retire, although he very much deserves to. As my dentist, he was extremely caring and conscientious about what certain procedures would cost. I had my first visit with Merit Dental this month, just after Dr Lazur retired and was very pleased with the services I received. I hope to continue going there, even though it is a 1.5 hour drive each way for me.

Like a previous reviewer mentioned, Dr. Lazur is the only dentist that has ever performed a complete and thorough oral exam during my visit. He is a "dentist's dentist." Now only is his professionalism and his commitment to the practice of dentistry excel, he truly cares about his patients' well being. His staff reflect the same attributes. This practice is the best of the best.

Great first time office experience. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff helped us feel comfortable as new patients who had not seen a dentist in some time. My wife, Debbie has been telling family members and friends all about the great experience she had at the dentist! We had no dental insurance, but we were provided a coupon that helped with the charges for both the initial exam, which included a set of full mouth x-rays and an extensive cleaning and fluoride treatment! We both agree it was a great decision to begin our relationship with Dr. Nick Hartranft and his staff. We look forward to continuing that relationship into the future.

Saw 'Dr. Nick' for the second time yesterday on an 'emergency' appointment. Great dentist! My first appointment was for a 'cap' (visit yesterday was unrelated). The atmosphere of the office hasn't changed with the changing of dentists. Still the same great place to come to have your teeth fixed or cleaned. And the staff is as friendly as ever.

Dr. Nick spends time and explains each detail with great understanding. His staff is both professional and go above and beyond to educate me through my process. I even take my 4 year old with me each visit and she looks forward to seeing all the same faces and know by name. No other dental facility comes close to this team. We love them.

Dr. Lazur was super and brought me through all of my fears and built a wonderful relationship with each other. I trusted him with his replacement with Dr. Nick who I know will follow in his foot steps. Everyone at Merit Dental is super and caring. I highly recommend anyone looking for a dentist to go there. I won't go anywhere else and thanks to them, I still have my own teeth. Thank you Merit Dental and staff.

I have a lot of respect for Dr Lazur's skills and am sorry to see him retire, although he very much deserves to. As my dentist, he was extremely caring and conscientious about what certain procedures would cost. I had my first visit with Merit Dental this month, just after Dr Lazur retired and was very pleased with the services I received. I hope to continue going there, even though it is a 1.5 hour drive each way for me.

Like a previous reviewer mentioned, Dr. Lazur is the only dentist that has ever performed a complete and thorough oral exam during my visit. He is a "dentist's dentist." Now only is his professionalism and his commitment to the practice of dentistry excel, he truly cares about his patients' well being. His staff reflect the same attributes. This practice is the best of the best.

I left this dental practice after 20 plus years. I was treated horribly by the new office manager, Melissa. Dr. Nick is a great dentist. However, the first person you come In contact with is the receptionist, or In this case the office manager. She said she is a "one man show."

Hygienists are fine, the administration side of this place is awful. My entire visit should always be covered yet I receive bills that I dont actually have to pay. Also, due to covid, everyone is being charged a $12 ppe fee. Delta dental insurance only covers $10...which leaves you with a $2 bill. Not exactly going to break the bank, just an inconvenience. If anything, start charging $10. If you want to profit off having to use hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, just charge $10. Hygienists have always been wearing gloves, face shields and masks. PPE has always been a part of dentistry. Mouths are disgusting. Hygienists and dentists have always had to be cautious. Stop pretending anything changed.

It is one of the friendliest places that we have ever went and each time a procedure is needed the both of us walk away pain free and completely satisfied. I have never heard eveni people enjoying the dentist as much as my daughter does. It is well worth a visit.

I had my first visit with Merit Dental this month, just after Dr Lazur retired and was very pleased with the services I received. I hope to continue going there, even though it is a 1.5 hour drive each way for me.

Like a previous reviewer mentioned, Dr. Lazur is the only dentist that has ever performed a complete and thorough oral exam during my visit. He is a "dentist's dentist." Now only is his professionalism and his commitment to the practice of dentistry excel, he truly cares about his patients' well being. His staff reflect the same attributes. This practice is the best of the best.
