‘‘Great oral health practice with caring staff and dentists. I have used the services of Dr. Merrill for several years. Just completed my Invisalign treatment, and the results are fabulous. Very happy with the end results. If you need a new dentist, I would not hesitate using the services of NorthStar Dentistry. Highly recommend.’’

Joann S., (5-Star Google Review)

‘‘Everyone is so nice, and Dr. Bunn is so kind and gentle. All the hygienists/dental assistants are wonderful. The front office staff are great. I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Merrill. I have met Dr. Steve and want to hide him in my purse and take him home with me.’’

Kathy S. (Five-Star Google review)

‘‘I am someone who gets anxious when I go to the dentist, but here? There’s nothing to worry about! All the staff, including Dr. Merrill & his wife, are so warm and kind. The best thing is, they have a family dog, whose name is Steve & he’s also a registered therapy pet. Yesterday he laid on me for my entire session and kept me so calm.’’

Medusa (Five-Star Google review)

‘‘I love this place.
I went there with intentions of getting dentures, but Dr. Bunn took good care of me and made me realize my teeth are not that bad and is now working on them to save them and give me a healthy mouth.
