Meet the Doctor
Dr. Merzon graduated magna cum laude from Clark University in Worcester, MA where he received his B.A in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. While at Clark, Dr. Merzon was an active member of Clark EMS, a team of volunteer certified emergency medical technicians that responded to all medical emergencies on the university campus. He spent one year doing research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute prior to attending dental school. Dr. Merzon received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine where he graduated cum laude.
Before opening his own practice, Dr. Merzon worked in a private practice in Brookline, MA. He believes in a comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach to diagnose and prevent dental disease through periodic oral evaluation, patient engagement, and education. Dr. Merzon strives to make dental treatment as comfortable as possible by providing warm and personal attention to every patient. He is a member of the Massachusetts Dental Society and the American Dental Association, and holds a Clinical Instructor appointment in the department of general dentistry at Boston University School of Dental Medicine. His focus is on treating patients in a caring and thorough manner, and in building a trusting relationship that patients can count on for many years to come.
First Impression Dental is the continuation of great family tradition in exceptional dental care. First started in 1938 by Dr. Frank B. Greene, it was then carried on by his son Dr. Richard A. Greene, and now continued by Dr. Greene’s son-in-law Dr. Dmitry G. Merzon.
Like many dental offices, First Impression Dental is a modern dental practice where we utilize the latest dental materials, techniques, and equipment. What sets us apart is the way we treat our patients. Our goal is to create a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere where we treat you as part of our family, the way we would want to be treated.
At First Impression Dental we are dedicated to providing the highest quality dental care in a friendly, and caring environment. We work hard to offer personalized care and treatment so every patient feels most comfortable, and receives our undivided attention.
We use extensive sterilization procedures that exceed those recommended by the American Dental Association and The Centers for Disease Control.
We change gloves, masks, and barriers in between every patient. Furthermore, all surfaces and equipment are wiped with disinfecting solution before a new patient is seated in the treatment room.
Our brand new X-Ray machines use minimal radiation. Compared to some older units, these require up to 75% less radiation, while providing exceptional image quality for improved diagnosis.
All dental instruments are sterilized in between every patient. We use state-of-the-art sterilization equipment that destroys all possible forms of bacteria or virus using high-pressure steam. In order to ensure adequate sterilization every time, we use sterilization indicators on all instrument packages. Once a week we use a professional testing service to add absolute assurance to this sterilization system.
