We know what an impact a beautiful smile can make, which is why we are so dedicated to providing our patients with cleaner, straighter teeth than ever before.
Having served Georgia and East Cobb for years, we understand that no two patients will ever have the same needs.

If you have had a cavity filled before, you're not alone. Tooth decay affects more than 90% of adults over the age of 40 - a stunning statistic that, in many cases, is entirely preventable. At Merchants Walk Dental, we use composite resin fillings to keep our patient's teeth healthy and functional. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings are more discreet, match the color of your teeth, and are free of mercury.
While fillings can have a few uses, our doctors typically use fillings to âfillâ a part of your tooth that is decaying. This hole of decay is called a cavity. Sometimes, fillings are also used to fix broken, cracked, or worn-down teeth from grinding and nail-biting. Fillings are a great way to restore decaying teeth to their normal shape and function while preventing sensitivity and inhibiting further decay.
During your dental exam at our office in East Cobb, your dental hygienist will check for signs of cavities and tooth decay to ensure your oral hygiene remains in peak condition.
Having served the East Cobb and Austell for years, we know your dental needs are unique and different from your neighbor. That's why we offer a variety of dental services to address each patient's special circumstances, from standard cleanings to complex root canals. By using the latest innovations and techniques in dentistry, we can better serve each client on an individualized level, leading to better comprehensive dental care.
We're taking new patients and accept most major forms of dental insurance to keep your teeth healthy and clean without breaking the bank. Contact our office today to schedule your dental exam and learn more about our history!770-691-5051

Neighborhoods in Austell took a major hit during the storms. A Cobb County family of eight is now searching for a new place to live. A tree came crashing down onto their Austell home while some of them were inside. The family say not only is the house unlivable but pretty much everything they own is destroyed.
AUSTELL, Ga. - A Cobb County family of eight is now searching for a new place to live after a tree crashed down onto their Austell home.
After losing their home and two of their cars, the family says they are "grateful" because they have what is important, each other.
In just a few quick moments Thursday afternoon, everything changed for Willicia Patterson and her family.
"You can have something and in the blink of an eye it can be gone," she said. "So just be thankful for what you have and don't take it for granted."
Willicia's kids range in age from 5 to 17. They have called the house on William Road in Austell home for a year and a half, but after a tree came crashing down that is no longer the case.
"It's like it jumped from the main road to this field to our house and disappeared," Patterson said.

The family says once the tree landed on the house, the holes it created allowed rain to pour in and ruin everything inside.
They do not have renters' insurance to cover any of their belongings after they say it lapsed about a month and a half ago. An illness and a lost job meant they fell behind on bills as they worked to make ends meet.
Once news of the destruction spread, people stepped up to help and got them a hotel.
"It's a bad time, but it's a great time as well because our community, our schools reached out, helped us," Patterson said.
This was not the only home damaged in the area Thursday. Cobb County says 49 others were as well. 16 of them are not livable. Officials say two people were injured; both are said to be okay.
On William Road, Patterson is now working to figure out what's next.
"It's materialistic things, nobody got hurt," she said. "Take it one day at a time, but we'll get back together and have somewhere to call home again."

The National Weather Service says surveyors will be on Saturday to determine if the damage was caused by a tornado or straight-line winds.

AUSTELL, Ga. — The Cobb County Planning Commission approved a rezoning request by an Atlanta-based company as part of a process to build nearly 60-home subdivision in Austell on Tuesday.
The rezoning request is aimed at a series of parcels off of Maxham Road.
Drapac Investments, an international property investment company, requested rezoning for a 19.45-acre section of land in Austell to build 59 single-family homes.

According to the materials submitted by Drapac to the county, the land would be built on what is currently an undeveloped wooded lot.
As proposed, Drapac would develop the area into a set of single-family homes, in an attached and detached subdivision.
While the rezoning was approved Tuesday, a final site plan must still be submitted to the District Commissioner.
Additionally, the investment company would have to complete a series of other checklist items to gain approval, based on the staff recommendation.
On top of the site plan, Drapac would have to forego any variance requests, have a maximum density of four units per acre, all detached single-family houses, receive and submit Fire Department comments and recommendations, as well as the same from the Water and Sewer Division, Stormwater Management Division, and Georgia Department of Transportation.
The zoning files state that the locations would be developed for “affordable single-family detached or attached residential dwelling units,” including combinations of duplexes, triplexes, and quadraplexes.
Overall, the residential criteria in the materials submitted to the county say the area would be able to have up to 63 units, based on a buildout approved in March 2016.
The original proposal included 97 units, according to the documents.
According to the plan, the neighborhood would have any potential students be in the district for Mableton Elementary School, Garrett Middle School, and South Cobb High School.
As far as build and aesthetic, the “architectural language” of the proposal lists Modern Farmhouse and Craftsman style designs for the homes, according to a render packet received on May 18.
While the rezoning was approved on Tuesday, a final consideration will be before the Cobb County Board of Commissioners on June 20.

AUSTELL, Ga. - An Austell...
AUSTELL, Ga. - An Austell business was forced to close its doors Tuesday after heavy rain moved through the area. Paige’s Bistro temporarily shut down through at least Wednesday after the owners discovered a major leak in the roof.
Bailey said rain from outside found its way inside—eventually pouring through the roof of the building on Veterans Memorial Parkway on Tuesday afternoon.
"It was like really heavy over there for like two hours straight, and we first noticed a little drip, but before we knew it, it was a shower," owner Craig Bailey told FOX 5. "It was coming down in the lobby, the side of the storage wall, and into the kitchen as well."
Bailey said they were left with no choice but to temporarily close while they assess damage to the roof and kitchen equipment. He told FOX 5 it’s a big blow to the business that’s been open less than a year—even if it is just shutting down for a day.
"Being closed one day, a couple of hours definitely hurts…on a Wednesday, because we do 50-cent wings, that’s probably a $6,000 day," he explained.

It’s unclear at this time how long Paige’s Bistro will be closed, but Bailey says they’ll know more Wednesday.
While they wait for a damage assessment, he said they’re also trying to figure out how they’ll pay their employees.
"With this happening now, not only do we have payroll Friday, but we can’t just not pay our crew members…they’re expecting full paychecks," he told FOX 5.
For now Bailey said they’re asking for prayers from the community and that when they do re-open, people support them by showing up.

May 10—An Austell man will spend two years behind bars after being convicted of drug trafficking conspiracy, federal prosecutors announced.
Christopher Allen, 48, pleaded guilty in federal court and was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Michael Brown to two years in prison, to be followed by four years of supervised release. Allen was described by prosecutors as a "mid-level trafficker." He is one of eight people who have been sentenced following a multi-agency investigation into an Atlanta drug ring.
"This group of drug traffickers targeted vulnerable communities in our district for distributing illegal narcotics," said U.S. Attorney Ryan Buchanan, in a statement. "Through the diligent efforts of our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners, we dismantled the organization's distribution chain and prosecuted the suppliers. This case demonstrates our commitment to removing dangerous drugs from our streets as well as the dealers who peddle them."
According to prosecutors, the group operated out of southwest Atlanta. The investigation began in 2019 when Drug Enforcement Administration agents started looking into 46-year-old Kevin Clark of Atlanta, a "prolific drug trafficker."
Clark pleaded guilty to drug trafficking conspiracy and was sentenced to seven years and three months in prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release.
Three Mexican nationals who supplied Clark with drugs — 50-year-old Esteban Niere, 37-year-old Alejandro Elias-Miranda and 43-year-old Eduardo Gutierrez — pleaded guilty and received prison sentences ranging from six to 10 years.
In addition to Allen, three other metro Atlanta residents pleaded guilty and received prison sentences ranging from two to 15 years in prison — 42-year-old Christopher Jones of Norcross, 46-year-old Tierre Freeman of Stockbridge and 50-year-old Lamon Brown of Jonesboro.
"The DEA is committed to deploying resources to combat and interrupt the dangerous drug trafficking organizations that have set up business in the Atlanta area," said Robert J. Murphy, special agent in charge of the DEA Atlanta Division. "We will continue to work aggressively to hold accountable those who are trafficking dangerous drugs."
The case was investigated by the DEA, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, with assistance from several local agencies.
Prosecutors said law enforcement also seized vehicles, guns, cash, and jewelry which were used in the commission, or purchased with the proceeds, of the crimes.
Assistant U.S. Attorney C. Brock Brockington prosecuted the case.
