Welcome to Our Practice

At Merker Dental, we're more than just a dental office – we're dedicated to treating you and your loved ones like part of our own family. Our team sees each patient as a valued member of our dental office, working together to achieve optimal oral health and beautiful smiles.

Rooted in a rich family tradition, Merker Dental has been serving the Zanesville community since 1906 starting with Dr. David Carey. Dr. Donald Merker then took over the practice from his uncle, and our practice has been passed down through generations, with his children and grandson continuing the legacy of excellence in dental care.

Our experienced dentists take the time to listen to your concerns and provide personalized treatment options to meet your needs. From general dentistry to cosmetic procedures, we offer a comprehensive range of services to ensure your smile is healthy and vibrant.

We understand the importance of patient education, which is why we've included a wealth of information on dental health and treatments on our website. We encourage you to explore these resources to empower yourself to make informed decisions about your dental care.

Convenience is key, and we strive to make your experience as seamless as possible. Our office is easily accessible, with convenient hours and hassle-free appointment scheduling. Whether you're a new patient or a returning visitor, we're here to address any questions or concerns you may have.

At Merker Dental, we're proud of our family legacy and the personalized care we provide. Join us and experience the difference of professional excellence with a personal touch.
