WElcome information

Our Office

Dr. Mercado and his staff want to welcome and thank you for choosing us for your dental care! The initial appointment is about an hour or two in length (if you also have a cleaning scheduled). This appointment is devoted to obtaining necessary records, which allows Dr. Mercado to identify factors that are capable of causing or contributing to the deterioration of your oral health or function. Dr. Mercado and his staff can discuss any of your dental concerns and/or esthetic wants at this time. Your initial visit has been set aside just for you. If for any reason you are unable to make a scheduled appointment we ask that you give 48-hour notice to reschedule. Please take some time to review and fill out our forms and submit them prior to your first visit. If you have dental insurance we will be happy to estimate coverage amounts and process claims for you. We work with you as much as possible to utilize the plan for your maximum benefit. Remember that we work with hundreds of dental insurance companies and benefits are always estimated. If you have any concerns or needs for your appointments, please don’t hesitate to let us know.


Updated Parking Instructions for Our Patients

We’ve made some changes to our parking process to better serve you. The new method involves a more streamlined, contactless payment system using QR code technology. Here’s what you need to know:

How to Park:

  1. Arrival: Enter the parking structure from Alhambra Blvd, situated next to FedEx & Peet’s Coffee.
  2. Direction: Once inside, proceed left then take the next right to go upward. Continue driving to the second floor (P2) or third floor (P3).
  3. Parking: We have two reserved spots on the second floor specifically for our patients. Look out for signs that indicate these reserved spots.

How to Pay for Parking:

  1. QR Code: No need for paper tickets anymore. You will find a QR code displayed at various locations within the parking area.
  2. Scan: Use your smartphone’s camera to scan the QR code. You’ll be redirected to the Metropolis website or app.
  3. Account Setup: You’ll be prompted to set up an account with Metropolis. Please provide your Name, Phone Number, Email, License Plate, and Credit/Debit Card information.
  4. Payment: Parking is still priced at $2.00 per hour. Once you’ve set up your account, payment will be automatically deducted.

Note: We do not validate parking.

How to Find Us:

Once parked, make your way to our building marked by the “1315 Alhambra Entrance” sign. A single flight of stairs will take you up to our first suite located just outside the stairwell. For those who may find stairs challenging, an elevator is readily available at the front of the building in the lobby, accessible through the Alhambra side double doors.


  • From Davis or Chico: Follow I-5 to 50 (Tahoe), then take Business 80 to N Street. Take a left onto Alhambra after traveling one block on N Street.
  • From Auburn or Roseville: Exit Business 80 on J Street. Turn right on Alhambra and proceed for 4 blocks, just before reaching N Street, take a left.

We hope these updated instructions make your next visit to our dental clinic more convenient. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Downtown Sacramento


Dr. Mercado is truly an amazing dentist!! I had to have 4 cavities filled and he made the procedure as painless as possible. He answered all of my questions and I was in and out of the office in an hour!




I had such a wonderful experience. All of the staff is so nice, Jackie and Yami help you out at the front desk. And Lisa and Dr. Mercado crack you up and make you feel absolutely comfortable in the chair. I have found my dentist for life. I would highly recommend to all my family and friends.
