Our Services

From 3 to 103, we see patients of all ages. We have a friendly, warm environment where children can become comfortable with the dentist and the surroundings from a very young age. We also see elderly patients who might need dentures or partials.
From placement to restoration, we provide a variety of dental implant options to our patients who need tooth replacement. Dental implants can support single crowns, bridges, partials, or dentures in a multitude of ways, and their strength is as close to natural teeth as a patient can get.
Dr. Merendino provides an esthetic for nearly all of his dental work. This could be as small as a tooth-colored filling that matches the existing shade to a complete smile makeover with porcelain veneers and crowns.
Dr. Merendino has state of the art equipment for treating abscessed or painful teeth that need a root canal to get our patients out of pain and back to their normal chewing functions.
While preventive dentistry is necessary to sustain the health of your smile over time, oral surgery may be needed to treat dental concerns and restore oral health. We offer an array of advanced surgical processes, including extractions, implants, and some periodontal procedures, that follow your individualized treatment plan.
