Dr. Chelsea Merritt

What is your favorite thing about practicing at River Run Dental?

Helping people is my favorite part of dentistry. From relieving pain to making life changing smile improvements. I pride myself on making people feel comfortable in a place that makes many people nervous.

If you weren’t a dentist, what would you like to do?

I’d most likely be a farm-to-table chef. Gardening and cooking are my favorite hobbies!

How do you stay up to date on the latest dental techniques?

I take regular continuing education courses, participate in study clubs and collaborate with colleagues to further my dental knowledge and techniques.

What charity or organization are you most passionate about supporting?

I love supporting the Mission of Mercy (MoM) Projects. I enjoy volunteering for this charity which provides free dentistry to the underserved in different locations throughout the year.

What do you want patients to say about their experience with you?

That they can’t wait for their next appointment!
