My son was treated by Dr Merlino to repair fillings done incorrectly by another dentist. She gave plently of time for him to become numb and thoroughly cleaned all remaining decay sparing him a possible root canal. I highly recommend Dr. Merlino.

There is nothing more important than my children. I am blessed with 2 sons ages 9 & 7. My eldest was scared before we left for their first trip to a Dentist (Dr. Merlino's office.) When we pulled up to her office... both of my boys were excited to go inside. First off she has a custom sized door for the kids to enter. The office has a friendly atmosphere with an animal props. It is immaculately clean. The staff is experienced and they go out of their way to help you. And Dr. Merlino herself is wonderful with my kids. She is always excited to see my boys and answers all their (& my) questions. All her equipment is state of the art and the kids always get a goody bag when they leave her office. I have recommended numerous friends to her office and they all called to thank me afterwards. We will be moving to North Carolina next year and we plan on driving up twice a year for the kids recall appointments. Dr. Merlino and her staff has been nothing but professional and gentle with my family.

i concur with the other mother who said she is not very caring to her little patients. my child was also scared and she's telling her that what she is doing doesn't hurt as she's crying. i find that to be a total disregard for her younger patients because being scared can exacerbate any pain or unfamiliar procedure. not happy with her and there are so many other pediatric dentists out there that i wouldn't be surprised if her return rate is low. find someone better!

I was not satisfied with Dr Merlino's services. My child was anxious about his visit to the dentist and cried when he saw the xray machine. Dr Merlino reprimanded him in front of the whole office and told him that his crying interfered with her work. Definitely do NOT recommend.

Best pediatric dentist. Clean, cute, nice office that my son loved to go to. Dr. Merlino is very nice and totally made my son feel relaxed. He doesn't hate going to the dentist like I do and I think it's b/c he had such a good experience w/ Dr. Merlino. Also, when my son had to get braces Dr. Merlino recommended Dr. Donato who we absolutely love!

Dr. Merlino and her staff are amazing! They do a wonderful job, technically, and are masters at putting both child and parent at ease in order to get necessary dental work done. Her prices are also relatively reasonable.

Awesome! Dr. Merlino has been a blessing for my two kids. They actually like going there! My daughter just reminded me to make an appointment. I always feared going to the dentist, so it is wonderful to know that my kids enjoy their visit and that Dr Merlino takes care of them with lots of patience! Sometimes the waiting time can be long, but most doctors do make patients wait long.

She was outstanding. My daughter had been treated at a different dentst office, and had a negative experience. Dr. Merlino worked with us. She explained things on a level that made my daughter feel incredibly comfortable. I can not recommend her high enough on her ability to work with parents and children.
