Oral health can influence your overall health. Recent studies show that a connection exists between gum disease (periodontitis) and certain serious health conditions, including stroke, diabetes, and heart disease.
Brushing, flossing and eating a balanced diet are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile. In addition, regular dental visits are needed to prevent or treat early stages of tooth decay and gum disease, which often go undetected in the absence of pain.

Improved Care for Wheelchair Patients
Thanks to a generous gift from the Sisters of Charity Foundation of Canton, Mercy Dental Services purchased the diaco® dental chair, a fully mobile unit designed specifically for wheelchair patients. With the new lift, a patient remains comfortably in her personal wheelchair, eliminating all manual handling, lifting and hoisting for a safer and more dignified experience.
Our Dental Services Include:
- Routine preventive care
- Pediatric dentistry, sealants
- Root canals and extractions
- Crowns and bridges
- Veneers and whitening
- Implant supported dentures

In addition, we can perform several dental procedures at one time, eliminating the need for multiple appointments.
