THe wait between my cleaning and seeing my dr was quite long...like 15-20 minutes. I was trying to get to another appointment afterwards so it was a bit of a bummer since the rest seemed to go fine and we were on track up until then.

Non-verbal communication (87% of our communication is non-verbal) voice, tone, inflection, eye contact. Dr. Merritt is an excellent communicator. She is receptive to questions and takes the time to make sure her response is easily understood. I would include her staff as well in this observation.

all of the staff were so considerate. Sweet, and kind to my toddler for her first dentist visit. They made the entire experience very friendly and non- scary for a small child.

The only suggestion I would have is to give more information. I was told that I have a cavity between the premolars. I wished the doctor would hand me a mirror and say you have a cavity between your premolars, these 2 teeth here. As you should be doing between all your teeth, a good way to avoid getting cavities between these molars would be to floss X times a day. (something to this affect). I'm a visual learner, so having a visual would help me to follow through with a plan for my own care.

We have been seeing Dr. Amy and her staff for many years. We have always found her work to be exceptional and her manner to be caring and compassionate.

Dr. Merritt has taken excellent care of me and my family. I have not always been available to do some of the extensive work due to my schedule. However, it is always addressed in a very tactful manner during my cleaning appointments and we eventually get the work done when I have the time. I am especially happy with the crowns Dr. Merritt placed on my front and very visible teeth a few years ago.

Not to worry...Amy is an EXCELENT dentist by any unit of measure, but due to the pressure of modern dentistry, time is of the essence, and she manages it admirably. We have no problems worthy of the mention.

I have been seeing Dr. Amy merit for years and truly appreciate the work she's done for me. Two or three years ago she placed crowns on my front teeth and they still look absolutely beautiful today. she knew I was very concerned because this is the front of my face and smile and she worked hard to ensure the shape and color match my other teeth perfectly. I have total confidence in her work and I'm a bit of a perfectionist.

This was a routine cleaning. Dr. Merritt has always been welcoming. I had no questions or worries, and I think her time is based on the appointment. She did not spend a lot of time with me, but she did not need too. :-)

I'm impressed by the care of both doctors I saw. I understand that my situation was not easy to analyze, and I really was impressed by the time and care taken. It was a valuable educational experience for me, and that is unusual, from my experience. I think I'm better able to assume responsibility for my own dental health because of the clear and concise explanation of what is (probably) causing the problem. I need another category for this: It would be "Excellent."
