This content was provided by Dr. Merrill "Dr. John Merrill was raised in Michigan. He is the youngest of five children. His father was a chemical engineer who in his 30's became a full-time Methodist minister. His mother was a full-time mother and homemaker who went into social work devoting her focus to helping victims of domestic violence. She even wrote much of today's social work training curriculum for the state of Michigan. Dr. Merrill is a graduate of Western Michigan University and the University of Michigan. He practiced for 25 years in the northern lakeside community of Charlevoix, Michigan where he was devoted to his patients, his church, and his five children: three of which are adopted. He, his wife Natalie and six of their eight blended children moved to North Carolina in 2008 where Dr. Merrill was hired as medical director for Carolinas Center for Oral Health and to head up a multi-specialty dental practice as part of the Carolinas Healthcare System. He served there for over 5 years treating patients and leading their organization in the highest patient satisfaction scores. Dr. Merrill and Natalie are nearly empty nesters now and are very excited to be opening NorthStar Dentistry for Adults. He is a nationally recognized clinician treating many dentists as patients throughout his career. He truly loves being a dentist and a devoted husband, father, and grandfather."
