implementing new procedures

• Our office will communicate with you before your appointment to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those questions again when you arrive at the office.
• Infrared temperatures will be taken for the patients, caregivers and staff upon entering the office.
• A facial covering will be required by all visitors and our team members. Due to the shortage of PPE we ask all visitors over the age of 2 to bring their own facial coverings to your appointment.
• We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some throughout the office to use as needed.
• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. Also, chairs will be staggered in the reception area at least 6 feet apart from each other.
• Please consider not bringing additional visitors to the patient’s appointment, if possible, so we can help achieve maximum social distancing between guests.

This is the BEST Pediatric dentist office around. Dr Greg is great. The office manager, hygienists, all assistants, and... especially the front desk staff that greet you first are all wonderful. They are kind and truly care for the needs of your child. The office is always neat and clean. They have contests every month. The wait time is usually minimum, unless there has been an emergency with another patient which is understandable. If your child is afraid to go to the dentist just let them know. This is the place to go. They will never be afraid again.read more

I didn’t think it was possible. Dr Mertes is always kind and personable. Great place! Oh yeah and there are kids movies playing and the kid themed decor is welcome and inviting.

I left another dental office,where i did not have a good experience, to come here and I am extremely pleased to say the... least. We were given a tour by the office manager, who is incredibly professional and kind. This office appears to be very clean. They focus so much on directing their conversation to the children. They got us on the schedule quickly, they explained the cost of the procedure we were having done and gave us a print out itemizing each thing. Everyone is kind and full of compassion. Nobody likes going to the dentist, especially a young child who doesn't know what to expect. Dr. Mertes was very perofessinal but still super attentive to my daughter being nervous. His assistant was flawless in assisting him. What I like about Dr. Mertes the most I think is that he's in there to do his job the right way and he is going to tell you the best scenario for him and the child in order to make that happen. Parents are allowed to stay with their child as reward for listening to the dentist and although I thought that idea was nerve wracking at first, I completely understand it and respect it. Totally recommend this place.read more

What a breath of fresh air! This practice really has it going on! My five year old had a large treatment plan setup... that we were really worried if he was going to be able to step up to the plate and do it. The appointment went so smooth that they were able to get everything done and keep my child content and happy through the whole process. Dr. Kelsey and her staff are miracle workers! If you are struggling to find a great dentist look no further check out Mertes Pediatric Dentistry!!!read more

I can’t say enough about how fantastic this office is with children! Especially those with special needs. The... hygienists are friendly, efficient and understanding of each child and their needs ( whether they’re special needs or not ). Greg is also fantastic! He’s informative and pleasant as well. Kids love him! We drive a half hour specifically to see this dentist and his staff just get the love and care they give to kids. I must include the front desk in my review as well. They are quick and efficient too! All around a good place to take kids!read more

We provide compassionate pediatric dental care specifically designed to fit the needs of each child. We believe that the best dental care is based on a relationship of trust and understanding between our team, you and your child. We have extensive experience with children who have developmental or behavioral challenges. Whether your child is special needs or not, we believe everyone deserves a special attention. We pride ourselves on being patient, understanding and professional.

Start Young. Smile For a Long Time!

We begin treating children at 12-18 months to give your child a good start for a lifetime of great dental care. By pre-school, your child may already have developed strong oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime!

The Big Picture

We take a comprehensive look at pediatric dental care. Yes, we will provide exams, cleanings, x-rays when necessary and fluoride treatments. In addition, we work with you and your children to design a home care routine that includes:

  • Proper brushing technique
  • Diets for healthy teeth and gums
  • Hygiene and growth

Our comprehensive, preventive approach helps to eliminate the need for more extensive dental work. Now that’s something to smile about!
