Dr. Mercado is my favorite dentist ever! And that's saying a lot because I have a phobia of the dentist. Everyone in the office made me feel so comfortable.



I was recommended to Dr Mercado by a coworker. I had a previous denture done by a different office that was horrible. Dr Mercado and his office provided me with a beautiful new denture that I absolutely love.


I went in for my first appointment and everyone was very friendly, and it seemed like everyone was really happy working there. Dr Mercado was very nice and friendly, and seemed genuine about the health of my teeth. Everyone I met was great Yami, Lisa, Jackie, Courtney and Ashley. 


I just had a crown replaced in ONE appointment.  What could be better than that?  Well, okay, a few things, maybe:  like Dr. Mercado’s kindness and expertise, his staffs’ care, attention to detail and humor (shout out to Lisa, Ashley, Jackie and Yami), and puppies.  My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Mercado for a few years, and he’s outstanding.
