Patient Care Comes First

For Dr. Meri, the most important part of his practice is his patients — hands down…

A few minutes inside our office will show you why patient care comes first! In every aspect of the dental care offered, we make sure our patients are comfortable, safe and happy.

The friendly staff members work hard to make patients feel at home, and Dr. Meri is quick to put his patients at ease with light humor. Our office uses pure, filtered water so our patients can rinse without getting a bad taste or any chemicals in their mouths.

Dr. Meri has an easy manner and a genuinely friendly smile. When he says that he truly cares about his patients, it’s easy to believe him. That’s why he installed tv’s in every room so patients can watch their favorite shows, does the best he can to make shots painless and calls each patient the evening after they undergo a procedure to see how they’re doing.
