Im so lucky to be under the care of this team. Dr Karren, Brittney, Tara and Melinda are all so amazing. They have helped in many different factors. I go to them twice a year for my cleaning. Most currently i had an urgent need for my crown to be recemented and they were efficient, professional and very helpful. Thanks for saving the day. And being so accommodating.The office is very clean and even though I moved, I still travel to go see them. Highly recommend!

I love coming here! The whole team has always been comforting and professional. They are all super knowledgeable and make me feel at home, that’s a pretty big deal for me! I can actually say I enjoy my trips to the dentist! Malinda is always super sweet on the phone and in person. Dr Karren, Annie and Terra are really thorough and gentle. They all really make a great team. Patient for life right here!

Thoughtful, caring, amazingly more than competent dental care. From the time you walk in the door until the time you walk out you are cared for. And then the aftercare is the best. The best I’ve known in 65 years.

Samantha M. from Central Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never found a dentist office that I look forward to visiting… until now. My teeth are healthier and better looking then they have ever been. I always feel like all of my questions are clearly answered and all procedures are throughly explained. I appreciate that they have proven to be budget friendly and accept CareCredit. The best part though is the staff. They greet you by name and talk to you like a friend. They offer chapstick, blankets, snacks and even massage chairs. It really feels like everyone there loves showing up for work in the morning. I would and do recommend Mercado Dental to all of my friends and family!

Very clean! And that’s important now. Social distancing is not an issue. Staff is extremely professional and polite. Also on time with their appointment schedule. No long wait time. Very caring and emotionally supportive when explaining the treatment options, and check for understanding while giving a lot of information. It can easily be overwhelming, but they make sure you know what all options are for treatment. I highly recommend this office for anyone seeking a personable dentistry experience.

Tiffany H. from South Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Started my family at Mercado Dental shortly after moving to the area from WI. I’ve had a lot of dental work in the past and have pretty significant anxiety but Dr. Karren, Breanna, Tara and Brittany made me feel right at home. This was the most comforting I’ve ever felt during dental work and each time I come back they remember our conversations. It is definitely more like personal service than just another patient. My daughter and husband had similar experiences and we are happy to have found a clinic with great customer service, family friendly atmosphere, and straightforward yet friendly experiences. Keep up the hard work Mercado team, Thank you!

Terry M. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


The friendly staff at Mercado Dental is always a refreshing way to endure the thought of going to “The Dentist.” They do everything possible to make you feel comfortable and their professionalism is outstanding. Anyone living in the Scottsdale Ranch area would enjoy going to a local, easy to get to, convenient parking and friendly service place to resolve all of your dental needs. Know what else is great? They laugh a lot and make the experience fun!

I’ve been coming here for years, but yesterday was my first appt since the location became Mercado Dental Care. Having said that, my former Dentist and her front office manager are no longer there, and I’ll miss them both. However, Annie (my hygienist who is absolutely fantastic) is still there, and my appt went great just like they always do. Dr. Karren also came in to introduce himself, and he genuinely struck me as being a very nice guy, and his front office staff is a very nice bunch too. In short, I have nothing but positive things to say, and I definitely plan on returning.

Dr Karren and his staff are amazing! I’v spent so many years in Az trying to find a dentist and office that have scruples and are professional & compassionate, not trying to do unnecessary procedures for the money! I had a tooth extraction & Dr. Karren explained everything, as I was extremely nervous, his assistant Tara even held my hand! The procedure was quick, and actually not bad at all!! Highly recommend Mercado Dental if you want a great dentist & staff!!

Sara H. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I was pleasantly surprised by my outstanding experience at this office. At first, I was a little hesitant, due to a few bad reviews, and my fear of the dentist. As soon as I walked in, I felt welcome…they immediately greeted me and offered a bottle of water. I was able to fill out all the forms online, which was very helpful and saved a lot of time. I waited not more than five minutes before Mary called me back to start taking my xrays. Let me tell you, I am a nervous wreck when it comes to the dentist, so her relaxed demeanor definitely put me at ease. Dr. Karen(sp?) came into the room shortly after she finished with the xrays and explained I needed a root canal and couple of fillings, which i already thought I might need since it had been so long since I’d seen a dentist. Once I received an estimate, Renee did a very thorough cleaning and let me tell you, she is hilarious! I will definitely be back to this office. I don’t know how it was before, but this new staff is AMAZING! I highly recommend them.

K. H. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great dentist, great office.  Dentist was very nice and did a thorough job.  The staff was very professional and helpful.  My first visit was as enjoyable as you can expect from a dental appointment.  Even my husband who had not been to the dentist in quite awhile and was nervous about his visit, ended-up having a good experience.  We will be using Dr. Morejon from now on and definitely recommend him to others.  And…just a side-note…he has AWESOME massaging chairs…just a nice perk.  🙂

I did a search around me when looking for a new dentist and after a few false starts with other offices (others either had rude staff, rude or rushed doctors.) I am very happy to have found Mercado. Dr. Karren is super nice, explains what he is doing, makes sure you are comfortable. And then there is the staff, they are amazing! Every single hygienist has been top notch. And then there is Brittany (picture below) her awesome attitude and willingness to help, completes the experience. If you are looking for a dentist or don’t love the one your going to, I highly recommend checking them out. Well priced, great with insurance. And always helpful. Ps. They have free WiFi

Nico P. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have no dental insurance atm and have been putting off any dental work I needed but one all-night-tooth-ache, I knew I had to do something. Upon checking the mail the following morning I had a mailer for Mercado Dental and decided to take it not as a coincidence and gave them a call, I was in the chair within minutes! Amazingly friendly staff and Dr Karren is so incredibly polite and mice, I was more than satisfied with my experience. I have been getting fillings, crowns, root canals, etc for 19 years and with Mercado Dental I had the greatest experience to date. Even the numbing shot I felt absolutely nothing, truly a “painless” experience. This emergency visit got me to schedule a “New Patients enrollment due to such a “shining” experience

Timely, well organized, friendly, homelike atmosphere. Costs were reasonable. Dentist offered options for dental solutions and appeared very knowledgeable and concerned. Very happy experience for a first time out of town patient.

Cari J. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Wow I’ve been in Az for over 15 years, and by far Dr. Karren and his team are the most professional, kindest, team ever! Brittany the office manager explains everything in detail l, and is so kind, Annie the Hygeniest is amazing & Dr. Karren is also very thorough & kind! I’ve been to one dentist after another in this state (trust me) & this is by far the best! My kids also actually don’t fear the dentist anymore! Also there are many dentists in Az that don’t really care about the patient, or charge unnecessarily, I’ve come across many! So happy to find this one!!! Highly recommend!

First, being able to make an ER appt. online after office hours was awesome. “EVERYONE” was super nice. Didn’t rush me to make a decision on what I wanted to do. Took time to explain every option. Plus had a print out of what my out of pocket cost would be after insurance. Love, Love this dental office. I am a life time patient

Manny A. from San Antonio, TX (Source: Yelp)


Just left my tooth extraction appointment and I am very amazed, glad, and happy that I didn’t feel a single thing. Their expertise definitely shows. Staff is super friendly. They treat you like family (they remember your name) and are always there for any questions. I have a treatment plan already set up for the next few months to complete full mouth issues and I am not complying a bit knowing that so far everything has gone smoothly.

I’ve been going to this office for years! I’m embarrassed that I’m just now letting people know how amazing it is. I went today after postponing about 5 times because of the pandemic and I felt 100% safe. This office is taking every precaution and they are always so accommodating. Annie is just the best dental hygienist in all the land….seriously. She is a kind human and she’s great at what she does. My teeth feel so squeaky clean again! If you are looking for a place in Scottsdale….this is it!!!

Debbie N. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I accidentally started here because I went to the prior dentist at same location so when I made my appointment I was surprised it was all new staff and dentist.  Loved the old team, but love this team equally.  Pleasant, helpful staff.  They are very professional, but make you feel at home and comfortable.  I’ve never been one that loves going to the dentist, but they make it very bearable!  Highly recommended.

Linda R. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


One of the hardest things about moving is finding your new “family”— not only the people who you will get to know and hold dear, but all of those professionals who we visit on a regular basis. Trial and error has been an ugly way to find a new hairdresser, tax accountant, & landscaper since moving from Seattle, but I absolutely lucked out on my first choice of dentist!! What an absolute relief and blessing to find Mercado Dental Care! Not only does each person on the Mercado team do a fabulous job in their professional role, but you quickly recognize that these are people who treat each other like family and are only too happy to include you.

Tiffany Dodd (Source: Facebook)


Everyone was nice and welcoming, it wasn’t complicated and they care more for the patient then the cost, also set up a payment plan for me. Dr. Karren was nice, polite and explained everything while he was doing my procedure.

Linda Rittenhouse (Source: Google)


After covid-postponing having my teeth cleaned, what a relief to finally slide my tongue over nice, polished pearly whites! Dr. Karren and his staff are taking every possible precaution to maintain a safe environment. Annie is an excellent hygienist, truly one of the best ever, but I find myself wanting to tell her to put down those tools so we can go for coffee. While taking excellent care of your teeth, the wonderful people at Mercado Dental Care treat you like a friend.

I’ve been using this office for a year now and my wife and I have had several visits to get various kinds of work done. The staff are always very personable and friendly. Dr. Karen is very proficient, informative, and friendly as well. I highly recommend Dr. Karen and his team to anyone, especially those who may be nervous when going to the dentist.

Deanna D. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient for only 8 months.  The initial  appointment was very comfortable and professional.  Upon my second visit Dr. Karen identify a pretty serious infection in 2 teeth that was not there at the first visit. The office staff  assisted me in getting to the oral surgeon quickly so this problem could be resolved.  Being new an area it is difficult to change Dentists and Doc etc….  I am very satisfied with the process at Mercado Dental Care.

Kenny N. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Mercado Dental is such a refreshing change to many other dental offices ive been to over the years.   Dr. Jordan  Karren  is very professional, easy going and really knows his business. I am very pleased with the services and staff is outstanding. Brittney in the front office is always there to answer any questions amd is very precise and thorough. Breanne the hygentist is also very good and does great job. Ive been going here for years now and  i am 100% satisfied with my dental needs here at Mercado Dental.

I needed an emergency cap repair and my son recommended Mercado. I just wanted my tooth fixed in time for a vacation. I did get my tooth fixed but I also found my new dentist. They were so helpful and caring as well as doing great dental work.

Robbie O. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


The moment I walked in the door I felt so welcomed. I am not the biggest fan of a dentist and I felt so comfortable. Brittany the front office was so inviting. Once brought to the back and sat in the chair you bet my anxiety was at full swing. I was in great hand the entire time. Tera the Dental Assistant joked around and just made me feel so comfortable and unafraid. Breanna was there with me when I was getting numbed up and held my hand because I’m a huge baby but I was relieved that everything went smooth and there was no pain during my Root Canal. Dr. Karren was awesome. He was reassuring that everything would go according to plan and it did. He made me feel very relax to a point I almost fell asleep. The whole experience was fantastic and I will definitely return if needed any more dental work. Thank you guys for an amazing experience.

Mercado dental is the best dental office i have ever been to. Dr. Karren is the most detailed and professional dentist i have ever had. He does awesome crowns amd bridges. Very precise. The office staff is top notch. Brittney is very kind and professional and easy to work with. She always answers the phone and is very organized. Always has billing done properly and promptly. I highly recommend this practice to anyone in phoenix.

I am beyond terrified of the dentist, so even making an appointment was a huge deal for me. My husband convinced me to make an appointment (because he loves it here so much) and so, I went ahead and made one. They made me feel so comfortable, answered all my questions, and were even very knowledgeable about pregnancy and the dentist. I also got an awesome goodie bag for just becoming a patient. I have had a lot of work done on my teeth, and they aren’t in the best shape possible. They were able to find all the problems, set me up with an appointment for a SATURDAY and get insurance all sorted out for me! I definitely will recommend this office to all my friends and family!

Samantha O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just had my first cleaning here (I’m new to AZ from CA), and I may just never leave AZ simply because Annie was so great! She was so gentle, thorough, and personable. And I was very happy with Dr. Karren. We’re keeping a close eye on my molars where the sealant is almost completely gone. He wasn’t quick to fill them and said let’s see how they look in six months. So glad my friend recommended this dental practice!

Beth F. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am new to Scottsdale Ranch. I just went to Mercado Dental Care at 10135 E Via Linda in the Mercado and everything seemed to go fine with me. They are a small operation with only one dentist which seems so far to work for me. I saw the dental hygenist Breanne who was great and Dr. Jordan Karren is the professional dentist. Brittany is so helpful with questions and the front desk. Dr. Karren did a nice job on my crown so far. Still have the temporary as I just went there. Please be sure to tell them I sent you! Beth

Martha Thomas (Source: Facebook)


Dr Karren and all of his staff are top notch. Dr. K is kind, caring and gentle. He inspires confidence and has an A Plus bedside manner. He is totally PAINLESS. Annie is a highly skilled and professional hygienist. She has cleaned my teeth for 15 years! I know when I leave there my teeth are CLEAN!! She has taught me many tips about gum care. Thank you Dr. K and staff for making my visits there awesome!!

Went there after Mike Karimi sold off the business and retired. The replacement dentists were in fact underwhelming and you never knew which part- time dentist was serving you at your next appt. They even argued about the TX plan and I even got an unexpected root canal because dentist #2 just decided to change the plan without advising me …and the quality of work ..meh.. I WAS considering travelling to Tucson for dental care …but lost a crown and called in at Mercado. Really glad that I did as it changed hands again and the staff and Dr.Karren are exemplary..use new technology and are sincerely customer orientated.. as an RN I can appreciate excellance in services provided. HIGHLY Reccomended

Marye G. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Was so happy to find this excellent dental office. I have lots of different appliances some of which are old and wanted a place that would be careful during procedures. The staff Brittany, Tara & Kelly led by Dr Karren are awesome – friendly, kind, and caring and willing to spend as much time as needed to answer questions and explain things. I also appreciated Dr Karren offering various alternative procedures to choose from. A warm and welcoming atmosphere and great work – highly recommend

Christian M. Geise (Source: Facebook)


The team is wonderful Tara is the best dental Assistant in the world. She has a great sense of humor and is easy to talk to. Dr Keran is great also, he is straight forward and right to the point. I will continue to use the services of Mercado Dental group.
