We are a small dental practice located in Libertyville, IL. Founded 22 years ago, we have been owned and operated by the Merrill sisters ever since. We strive to make each visit an enjoyable one, and work hard to put our patients first. We hope to see you soon!
We currently have two doctors working in our office, Dr. Carolyn H Merrill and Dr. Bernie M Jon. Dr. Merrill completed her undergraduate studies and dental education (DDS, Doctor of Dental Surgery) at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. Creighton is an accredited dental school. She has worked in Chicago for over 30 years since graduating from dental school, starting in pediatric dentistry in Chicago for a number of years until she opened her own practice with her twin sister, Dr. Eleanor B Merrill, in 2002. Dr. Jon attended dental school with Dr. Eleanor at the University of Missouri in Kansas City, also an accredited dental school, where he earned his DDS. Dr. Jon has been working at Merrill & Merrill Family Dental Care alongside the Merrill sisters since the beginning! He also teaches clinical courses at a local dental school.
This facility is great and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. From the staff to the doctors to the techs, everyone you encounter is genuinely concerned about your cat's best interests. Never once did I feel rush and I was able to understand everything the doctor was telling me. Dr Miller patiently and willing explained everything to me, answered all of my questions and gave me more information that I didn't even know I needed. It has been a while since my cat had seen a vet and I went in thinking I would be judged or pressured for a bunch of things that my cat "needed" but that wasnt the case. I enjoyed my experience so much Ill be taking my other cat here on the regular as well!
