What Our Patients Are Saying

My visit at Vlass + Merritt Dental Care exceeded my expectations in every way, and I highly recommend their establishment for any dental needs. Susan is a phenomenal hygienist, because of her precision, personality, and honesty with me during my visit a few months ago. She made a lasting impression, and I cannot thank her enough. It’s also important to note that the vibe of their office has a positive energy and very well maintained by their staff and leadership.
Dr. Vlass is my dentist even though I drive 1.5 hours to his office. I trust his judgment and he does a terrific job with my teeth. As I am advanced in years, and he has had to deal with some sensitive conditions in my mouth with outstanding results. I highly recommend their practice.
We are new patients to the practice and have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Joseph Merritt. Dr. Merritt is currently treating my mom who is 90 years old and helping her with some aging gum and teeth issues. The technology that Dr. MERRITT has introduced us to has been absolutely incredible but with technology comes questions. Dr. MERRITT took the time to explain everything to us, step-by-step and answered each and every question. He took his time and made sure Mom understood what he was recommending and why. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and caring approach to each conversation. We just returned from our second visit and again can report another great experience and the communication with the practice has been excellent. Kim coordinated all the transfer of mom’s dental records within an hour, so our visits have been very thorough. Did I mention the amazing technology? It is worth repeating. I am so relieved my mom is in excellent hands and we will be returning to continue the treatments Dr. MERRITT has recommended.
I feel that the staff listens to my concerns when I call and they try to schedule me as soon as possible. When I am seen I am confident of their care of my teeth and dental concerns. The staff is very professional! I have been seen by Dr Vlass and Dr Merritt and both are very caring and exceptional dentists. This is an outstanding dental practice! I love my dentists!!
Going to the dentist is not something anyone looks forward to, but Dr. Vlass is the best!! His staff are always kind and friendly. If you need a great dentist, this is the place. I’ve been going there for a few years and always have a great experience.
