Meet Dr. Merchant
"Energetic, fun-loving and a dedicated clinician". These words perfectly describe Dr. Purva Merchant, who feels privileged to have the opportunity at Redmond Kids' Dentistry to introduce children to a lifetime of positive and "no-fear" dentistry. Ensuring healthy smiles in a fun and worry-free atmosphere allows her to combine her love for children, science and artistry. She also emphasizes early education and]]] prevention to her patients and their families and strongly encourages the Age One Dental Visit to give kids a healthy start towards their oral health. Working with children brightens her day!
A former Miss India, Dr. Merchant graduated at the top of her class in dental school. She completed her Pediatric Dentistry residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry in New Jersey, from where she also received her Master of Science degree. She has attained Board certification with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, which represents the highest possible credential within the field. She also believes in continually staying updated with the advances within her profession in order to deliver the best possible care to her patients.
Besides English, Dr. Merchant is fluent in Hindi, Marathi and Gujarati, and is working on her command of French and Spanish. In 2007, she moved to the Seattle area to join her husband, and is enjoying the amazing outdoor lifestyle of the Pacific Northwest. When not at the office, she can be found kayaking the waters around Seattle, hiking the trails, traveling to distant lands, practicing her head-stand, scuba diving, painting, and living life to the fullest.
