Exciting News About Our Dentists’ Partnership

As you know:

Dr. David Bunn has worked alongside Dr. John Merrill as an associate dentist for many years. He shares Dr. Merrill’s high standards for dentistry and always puts your needs first.

Dr. Bunn also brings a unique set of skills to our office, particularly in dental implants.

As our practice has grown alongside Dr. Bunn’s role, it seemed only natural that he would officially join our practice.

That’s why we’re so excited to announce that as of April 1, 2022:

Dr. Merrill and Dr. Bunn are partners, sharing ownership of NorthStar Dentistry For Adults.

Share your congratulations with them the next time you’re in.

“I’m very proud to reintroduce you to Dr. Bunn as my partner. This wasn’t a decision I took lightly, but it was an easy one. Dr. Bunn is someone I trust explicitly and who has proven himself every day since joining. I’m honored he chose to put down roots at NorthStar.” – Dr. Merrill

What else is changing?

The short answer: Nothing.

Dr. Merrill isn’t going anywhere (nor is Steve!).

He and Dr. Bunn will continue to provide dental care as they’ve always done.

However, you can now expect to keep seeing Dr. Bunn long-term.

Owning a dental practice has been a lifelong goal of his. Here, he’s found his dental home.
