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.

WE LOVE OUR PATIENTS!
Wonderful team! Very approachable, knowledgeable, and kind. Definitely recommend. They will have you smiling brighter for sure
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.
