Dr. Sanaz Merchi was born in Iran and moved to the States at a young age. She grew up in Orlando, Florida, and completed her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences at UCF. She followed her passion for dentistry by graduating from Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine where her desire to provide care for the pediatric and special needs population grew. She continued her dental training by first completing a one-year General Practice Residency at Helen Hayes Hospital in New York where she worked primarily on adults with Special Needs and then completing a two-year specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Staten Island University Hospital.
Dr. Merchi, or Doc Nas as her patients call her, delivers a comfortable and fun environment while providing excellent care.

She practices patience, communication, and empathy, striving to establish trust and rapport with her patients. She provides diet counseling, oral health hygiene, and anticipatory guidance that will help parents and patients create habits that will positively influence their lifelong health.
