Bruce Merry, DDS - The Original Read Bio

As a General Dentist for 31 years (a University of MN graduate), Dr. Bruce Merry has won thousands of patients over with his gentle and conservative approach. If it’s been a while since you’ve stepped inside a dental office, don’t worry, there won’t be a lecture. If you’re a “needle-phobic,” you’ve come to the right place. What you should know: Dr. Bruce loves his job – so much so that he never wants to retire (unless Alzheimer’s kicks in, then his team might have to “extract” him)! Howev...Read More

Eva Lau, DDS Read Bio

We welcomed Dr. Lau to our dental team in November, 2017, along with her huge passion for dentistry! Her devotion to oral healthcare began during her undergraduate years in her beloved hometown of Winnipeg, Canada. Following her graduation from the University of Minnesota (go Gophers!) Dental School, she completed a General Practice Residency at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. (We think she kept looking for warmer weather!) After returning to Minnesota, she established a loyal patient ...Read More

Graham Merry, DDS - The Modern Edition Read Bio

Dr. Graham Merry acquired his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the U of MN in 2013. Just a taller version of his dad, he shares the same commitment to his patients to provide quality dentistry with integrity and care. His “morning-person” energy rubs off on his patients. However, if he starts singing along with the radio, we can supply you with cotton rolls for ear plugs. He spends much of his time “on-the-go” and has a knack for finding entrepreneur opportunities. He and his wife, Liz, ...Read More

Jill, Licensed Dental Assistant Read Bio

Jill wears many hats in our office. She has been a “dentist-in-training,” working alongside Dr. Merry for over 13 years – she could pretty much fill in for Dr. Merry at any time (but since that’s not legal with her credentials – she’s happy to be their extra set of hands). When she’s not assisting, she’s our Radiation Safety Officer, Inventory Captain and affectionately aka the “Sterilization Nazi”. Outside the office, Jill values spending time with her family and friends. She keeps up with...Read More

Melissa, Certified Licensed Dental Assistant Read Bio

Melissa came to us while she was an extern in the dental assistant program at Hennepin Tech. We loved her bubbly personality so much that we begged her to stay (despite her long drive)! We consider it a compliment that she thinks we’re worth the trip too! When she’s not assisting either of the doctors, she helps up front with administrative duties and also makes sure we stay on track with our outgoing lab cases. Although she’s from a small town, Melissa can strike up a conversation with any...Read More

Jamie, Dental Hygienist Read Bio

When it came to deciding on a career, Jamie was torn between elementary education and dental hygiene. In the end, she chose hygiene, which was a win for us! She channels her love for teaching to helping patients improve their oral health. Don’t let her “teacher” vibe fool you, her infectious laughter will make you smile. You won’t want to be tardy in scheduling an appointment with Jamie. Jamie works every other Monday, every Tuesday and Thursday. While Jamie and her husband are transitio...Read More

Chris, Dental Hygienist Read Bio

If you need a hug from your dental hygienist, look no further. Chris can make even the most nervous patient seem at ease. She works every other Monday, every Tuesday and Wednesday. Her schedule fills quickly so be sure to schedule your appointments with Chris in advance. Chris graduated from the Normandale Community College Dental Hygiene Program. Chris is THE soccer mom/chauffer/school PTA/president of the wonder woman association/etc. She and her family love traveling (especially to Di...Read More

Kelly, Dental Hygienist Read Bio

As a University of MN Dental Hygiene graduate, Kelly is our “go-with-the-flow” hygienist. Her patients love her laid back personality. She’ll let you know if you’ve been lax on your flossing, but don’t blame her, because that’s her job (and she’s good at it)! Just don’t slack on making an appointment with her. Kelly works on Monday’s and Wednesday’s. Kelly married her high school sweetheart and is now a busy mom of two. Her social calendar is always full with dance recitals, “Girl’s Ni...Read More

Meredith, Patient Care Coordinator Read Bio

It’s understandable that many patients are intimidated when they set foot inside a dental office for the first time. Have no fear, Mer (the short person behind the front desk) is happy to welcome you to our practice. She can help you schedule your next appointment, process your insurance claim, assist you in making your complimentary cup coffee (yes, we have a Keurig!) and everything in between. On the weekends, Mer enjoys baking, reading and starting many pinterest projects (but few are com...Read More
