Fixed my Smile - Huntersville, NC

Dr. Merrill was strongly recommended by a trusted friend. I went to him for a consultation. He took pictures and was able to explain what could be done and what the cost would be. He has done everything that was promised and I am confidently continuing with more work. His practice is modern and his staff is experienced and friendly. I highly recommend him.
