Meet Dr. Merrett
Dr. Merrett practiced in California for 3 years, and then moved to Hawaii. He started and practiced in his own private practice in Maui for 19 years. Dr. Merrett moved to San Antonio to be closer to family. He loves that San Antonio is a growing city, and has much to offer.
His philosophy is when it comes to Dentistry, "Health" is the most important factor. After health, the next important factor should be function, (how the teeth work), and finally it is beauty. He believes that these are foundations of a healthy mouth.
