Dr. Merritt was born and raised in rural Georgia. As an adult, he has had the opportunity to explore and live in many areas of the United States, including the South, New England, the Midwest and even the Pacific Northwest. Now he is thrilled to have the opportunity to build connections and enjoy the beauty that Houston, Texas has to offer as the newest orthodontist at Omega Dental Specialists.
Dr. Merritt attended college at Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA and received a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. Then he received his DMD at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, and finally, he pursued his Orthodontics specialty at University of Washington School of Dentistry. The doctor believes in continuing education and giving back to the dental community. As such he is proud to be a member of the American Association of Orthodontics and American Dental Association. Dr. Merritt also regularly works with groups such as Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society Volunteer Experience Black Achievers Dental Academy, Summer Medical Dental Education Program and Husky Smiles.
The doctor is focused on his patient’s comfort and results. He is quoted as saying: “As my patient, you can expect evidence-based treatment approaches; however, patient input and concerns will be a priority. My personal belief is that the practice of orthodontics is a patient-centered service, and it is my goal to facilitate an enjoyable, comfortable environment while creating beautiful smiles that will last a lifetime.”
While settled in the new practice is a priority, time off is also necessary. When not at the office, Dr. Merritt also enjoys working on his tennis game, hitting the gym, indulging in his favorite reality TV shows like “Real Housewives” and “Dance Moms” and spending as much time as possible with friends and family. Dr. Merritt is thrilled to be part of the Omega Dental Specialists team, and looks forward to working with you!
