Dr. Greg Mertes is the Best Kids Dentist in the Akron area. Of course, this is my own personal opinion (as is the rest of this blog!). There are many good dentists in the Akron area, however Dr. Mertes is set apart in several ways.

First of all, Dr. Mertes’ credentials are top notch. Dr. Mertes is board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. This certification isn’t lightly given, many pediatric dentists do not have this. Only those that excel in exceptional knowledge and expertize like Dr. Mertes.

Secondly, Dr. Mertes Pediatric Dentistry is affiliated with Akron Children’s Hospital. One of the mange advantages of this for you and your children is the ability to have dental sedation at Akron Children’s Hospital if your child needs this for major dental work, etc.

Thirdly, Dr. Mertes is compassionate and is excellent with kids. His entire practice offers superior care and support to patients. Dr. Mertes’ goal is to help kids overcome being fearful or nervous about going to the dentist from a young age. His practice does this everyday, which leads to healthy kids practicing good oral hygiene for life.

Open Door Kids Dental in Hudson, Ohio

Good dental health for kids is dependent not only on a good dentist but also on parents.  Mertes Pediatric Dentistry has an open door policy that welcomes the parent to be with their child through the entire dental visit. The open door policy allows Dr. Mertes and his staff to discuss with you and your child their dental needs.

They take time to educate you (and your child) on how to care for your child’s teeth, including proper brushing techniques, importance of diet, and hygiene and growth. You can know the health of your child’s teeth and what to expect with their development.

The Mertes Pediatric Dentistry website has a wealth of information on how to care of your child’s teeth from infants through 18 years old. It includes practical advice that will give your child the healthiest smile from the beginning.

I already talked about Dr. Mertes’ outstanding credentials, which is a priority. There is even more that sets this kids dentist apart from other pediatric dentists in the Akron area.

Dr. Mertes’ practice is a safe, caring environment where you and your child can relax. They take special attention to build a relationship with you and your children. They take things slowly and purposely to put you and your child at ease in a place where some people get very nervous and stressed.

Your kids will be excited when they enter Mertes Pediatric Dentistry office where they are welcomed by  a fun kids play room filled with vibrant wall murals of friendly animals, as well as toys, games, and a TV with cartoons.

From there, kids are taken back (with their parents) right past the No Cavity Club Gift Basket. If your child has no cavities, they can enter to win a huge prize basket filled with fun family friendly games and activities as a reward. Next, they walk by the treasure chest where they will later get to pick a prize.

The actual examining room at Mertes Pediatric Dentistry is open and spacious with an under-the-sea theme from floor to ceiling. The vibrant wall murals are welcoming to kids as they walk through the underwater fantasy land. The view is amazing too with large windows across the expanse of the examining room.

Parents can sit right next to their kids, giving their kids the support they need while getting an understanding of what is going on inside their child’s mouth. Each fun, purple dental chair is sized for kids, making the experience totally tailored for their comfort.

Your kids will not be talked to like an adult about dental matters. They talk to kids at an age-appropriate level. For example, they explain to kids all about the tools they are using and what they are doing in kid-friendly explanations. They don’t want to surprise kids with a sharp instrument being put in their mouth. They are great at explaining how this tool is like something they already know about.

For example, the sharp tool they use to examine teeth for cavities could look intimidating to kids. They show the child the tool and use it to count their fingers, then, during the examine, the doctor will say that he is now going to count their teeth. Kids already know that it is safe and easy for him to do this since the hygienist already did it on their fingers. For a dental filling, they tell kids they are getting a white or silver star on their tooth. It seems simple but is an amazing difference when it comes to the comfort level for kids. When I was there with my 4 year old, I felt like they were preschool teachers helping my daughter with gentle understanding and care for her.
