  • "I recently got my teeth cleaned with Dr. Merchant. The experience was great! This was the most thorough dental visit I've ever had. Kathi, was very efficient and kind to work with, both in setting up my initial appointment and planning a future visit. Dulce got me set up and even checked my blood pressure, took X rays and photos of my teeth. Dr. Merchant explained my oral health in a way that I easily understood. Stephanie is an expert in her craft and I never felt pain or discomfort. Dr. Merchant and staff are professional, efficient, and friendly and I will definitely be going back again!
  • "Dr. Merchant and her staff have provided fantastic dentistry for myself and my entire family (ages 16-83). But that is not what I am writing about. I wanted to take the time to write about sleep health. I'd been diagnosed with sleep apnea and struggled with aspects of this for years. I had been put on a CPAP and had a sleep specialist work with me, and yet was still not sleeping more than 5 hours a night and was chronically exhausted. My entire life was negatively affected, and I had frankly given up hope. Dr. Merchant worked with me, and it was the best decision I could have made. In the two weeks I've been using the new therapy, I've slept better than I have in the last decade! I have felt rested for the first time in years, and I'm more alert at work, my memory has improved, and I have renewed energy. Sleep health is such a core of overall health and wellbeing and Dr. Merchant has provided the help I needed. I cannot express my gratefulness enough, and highly recommend her to anyone."
  • "These days it’s pretty common to go to a doctor’s or dentist’s office and be treated badly or even worse, ignored. Not here. Not only are you recognized when you come in the door, but you're treated with respect and kindness. Dr. Merchant and her team are second to none. Very caring and attentive to your needs."
  • "Dr. Alpa Merchant and her staff are outstanding! She uses cutting edge technology such as Carivu Infrared Scan that can detect decay early. There is no administrator more efficient than Kathi! Stephanie, the hygienist, is uber gentle when cleaning your teeth. Dr. Merchant's entire staff is the best! This is my fourth dentist (I am very picky) and I'm happy to have finally found my dream dentist in Dr Alpa Merchant!"
  • "I was diagnosed with severe sleep-apnea a couple of years ago. I could not wear a CPAP and Dr. Merchant offered an OSD (Oral Sleep Device) as another option. The OSD literally changed my life! The simple mouthguard has all but eliminated my snoring! My energy is higher, my blood pressure is lower, I’m healthier, I’ve lost weight and most importantly my wife has been able to get good sound sleep for the first time in years! Truly a life changer. THANK YOU Dr. Merchant!”
