Safe and professional. I phoned in from the car and they came out to take me to my appointment room. My dental assistant was gave me a thorough and painless cleaning, and Dr. Merlo came in promptly and quickly remedied an issue that I had recently had. No one looks forward to dental appointments, but I need look no further for great dental care.

I have been going to Dr Merlo and his team for years. They are by far the best dentist experience I have ever had. The staff is outstanding. They are always upbeat. My entire family goes to this practice and wouldn’t change dentists even if I had to move further away from their office! Outstanding!

I have been going to this office for more years than I want to admit. I highly recommend this practice. They were extremely accommodating today as my elderly Mom who recently moved to the area needed to see a dentist. I called yesterday and she was seen today. They were all terrific and very patient and kind. It’s so wonderful to know personal service is still available! Thank you!!!

I have been a patient for 15+ years.  Dr. Merlo is a great dentist and his staff, especially Sarah, is excellent as well.  He and his partner are always available if I need to talk to or see them in between regular visits.  They’ve given me good advice and referrals when I needed some guidance on more advanced treatment. You won’t get a sell job on unnecessary services.  Dr. Merlo and Fahrney are the best!

I arrived a few minutes early, paperwork in hand. After only a few minutes, they took me back and introduced me to my dental hygienist. She was very thorough and pleasant. Dr. Merlo came in to check on things and was very personable and professional. I’m glad to have found a good dentist!!

I’m not fond of going to the dentist – I always get nervous – and I came here for the first time recently. It was just for a regular cleaning. They asked for my information over the phone when I made the appointment, which limited the paperwork I had to fill out when I arrived. Everyone was incredibly friendly, and I was in and out pretty quickly. I saw Dr. Merlo, who was great. I’ll be coming back here for all my dental appointments!

i LOVE this dental practice. I have had several dental issues (crowns, bridges, missing teeth, cavities, root canals..) Perhaps its because I come here frequently that they treat me like an old friend but everyone here is just wonderful. Michelle does my cleanings and is professional, thorough, efficient and an added bonus- quite funny. Dr. Merlo is just lovely as well. Knows what he is talking about and is comfortable, considerate and truly strives for excellence… I am forever grateful to my friend who referred me.

As a native of Alabama, I saw the same family dentist for over 20 years. Coming to Charlotte, I was so relieved to find a practice that answers all my questions (about insurance and teeth) and always accommodates my hectic schedule. They are so easy to work with, very professional, they always remember my name. Page is my hygienist, and I have seen both Doctors. I look forward to my visits, definitely recommend this practice to anyone new to Charlotte or thinking of switching.

Dr. Merlo is incredibly professional and his office staff is always very accommodating. I’ve never had to wait for more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. My hygenist, Sarah, is the best in the industry. They also have a TV in the room at eye level so you can watch whatever you want while receiving your treatment/cleaning. Thanks for 10 great years!

Mills S. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I always have a great experience at Merlo & Fahrney Dentistry. The staff if wonderful with my kids. You never have to wait for your appointment. I had gone to the same dentist for 30 years before he retired and I followed my dental hygienist to this fabulous practice. Could not be happier!

Who likes to go to the dentist? I do! I have been a patient of Dr. Merlo for 20+ years. I keep coming because of the high level of trust I have in him … plus, he’s fun to be around and makes the visit easy! Michelle is my hygienist and I enjoy coming in for my cleaning! Not only does she do an incredible job but she’s like a friend that I see every 6 months to catch up on each other’s lives. Dr. Merlo’s practice is one that I have extreme confidence in and one which also feels like family! My husband and son are also patients of Dr. Merlo’s. Keep up the great work!

Dr. Merlo and his dental staff are the best ever. They greet you so warmly and take the greatest care of you. All of the dental staff are kind and so courteous. It is my opinion that there is no finer dentistry anywhere in the Charlotte area any better than Dr. Merlo and his awesome staff. stafriendly courteous staff

The staff is friendly and professional here at Merlo & Fahrney.  I am thankful to have been referred here by a friend of our family. Going to the dentist is stressful normally but this office does an amazing job of making you feel comfortable and like family. They were especially caring and patient with our son who has Aspergers. Such a great dental experience!

Claudia B. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Merlo for over 20 years and would not go somewhere else. He os very friendly and knowledgeable. Michelle is my dental hygienist and she does an amazing job and is just so much fun to chat with. Scheduling appointments has been extremely easy and they deal with the insurance so I don’t have to. I would recommend them to anyone!

I really appreciate the great level of customer service I get from my hygienist Page and Dr. Merlo. I have had nothing but a great experience at Merlo and Fahrney Dentistry. Page is an excellent hygienist and I actually look forward to leaving the dental office with a clean smile.

This is a great place all around, you will feel the same way. I have had fillings, tooth bonding, tooth whitening, and yet no work that was not needed, which I appreciated, thanks to Dr. Merlo. You can trust their ability and advice, and if you need to be referred to a specialist for something such as tooth implants, you will be referred to the best person. Thank you, Pat Pollard

The Drs and the entire staff at Merlo & Fahrney are the best! The experience of having to call in on a very short notice and getting in to see Dr. Merlo was very good and quick. I ended coming back the next day for a unfortunate extraction but all went very well and Stetson and Dr. Fahrney did a amazing great job. Making me feel very comfortable thru the entire procedure. I highly recommend them for any dental issues.

Robert T. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Merlo has been my dentist for years. He and his staff always provide great professional service, in all aspects of the visit. I’ve always thought he was the best at administering a local anesthetic, totally pain free! All of the staff are very informative, and I never leave there feeling that I still have unanswered questions. Great experience always.

Jennifer H. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Our family has been going here for years and have always had a wonderful, professional experience. The dentists and hygienists are always knowledgable, efficient  and get the job done well. My children are not the easiest when it comes to these visits and the office does a wonderful job with each child. My husband has had numerous root canals and emergency issues and they always graciously squeeze him in their schedule. Can’t say enough wonderful things about this practice!

Best dentists in town! I have been coming to Merlo & Fahrney Dentistry ever since I found they were in my Blue Cross Blue Shield North Carolina network. After trying several area dentists, I will never go anywhere else. The front desk knows my name, billing department always coordinates my insurance benefits, maximizing them to their full potential. The hygienists that have cleaned my teeth are very helpful and knowledgeable. As far as the Doctors go, I have been under the care of both Dr. Merlo and Dr. Fahrney. They are both personable, make you feel significant and answer all of your questions. Exactly what I wanted to find in a dental practice. They see patients on time, every time. I get phone and email reminders for appointments. No “big facility” to get lost in with elevators and suite numbers, or looking through a window at the person talking to me about my paperwork. You won’t find that here. Friendly, personable atmosphere with flat screen tvs and good reading material, while you wait -which is never very long at all. And my teeth look and feel great! I have referred several people to your office. Thank you Merlo & Fahrney Dentistry!

I have been going to the practice for a few years and always had a good experience with my cleanings. I finally had a cavity (first one in years) that needed to be filled and was a little nervous. As Dr. Fahrney was administering the novocaine, I couldn’t feel a thing and asked if he had actually given me the shot! He and his assistant made me feel so at ease and couldn’t believe how easy the whole process was! The administrative team helped me understand my insurance and payment options. Can’t say enough about all, but particularly, my most recent visit to Merlo & Fahrney Dentistry!

I have been going to Dr. Merlo for 9 years and have always had a very positive experience. From the moment you enter until the moment you leave, the staff is always friendly and professional. Michelle is a wonderful hygienist who always greets me with a smile and makes me feel comfortable and relaxed during my cleanings. Dr. Merlo is a great dentist who cares immensely about his patients!
