Meet Our Team

Ronald M. Merski, DMD

Ronald M. Merski, DMD

Dr. Merski is an Erie native who graduated from Cathedral Prep High School. He earned his bachelor of science degree in 1976 and his doctorate of medical dentistry (DMD) in 1980, both from the University of Pittsburgh. He has been practicing since 1980 and continues to stay on the advancing edge of modern dentistry with American Dental Association (ADA) certified post-graduate courses. Some of his advanced course work includes cosmetic and neuromuscular courses at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. Dr. Merski has also studied with nationally-recognized sleep apnea expert, Dr. John Herald.

Some of Dr. Merski’s favorite after hours pastimes include fishing and boating on Lake Erie, where he is commonly known as ‘Captain Ron’, traveling with his wife of 25+ years, Patty, and supporting and cheering on a few of Pennsylvania’s finest sports teams, most notably, Pitt Panthers football and basketball, Pirates baseball, Steelers football and Penguins hockey. Dr. Ron and Patty are the proud parents of Aaron, Alexandra and Luke.


Kathy, Front Desk Receptionist

I’ve been in the dental industry for over 25 years and have enjoyed being part of Dr. Ron’s team of professionals since March 2013. When not working, my hubby, Larry, and I love canoeing, hiking, music, making wine, playing cards but most importantly, we enjoy fun times with our three kids, Leigh, Lauren and Neil.

Hayley, Dental Hygienist

I am the newest member of the Merski Dental Team, and as I understand, only the 3rd Hygienist in the last 30 years! I graduated from Central Tech and Fortis Institute and I am also certified to administer anesthesia. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you!

Jen, Dental Assistant

I joined the wonderful world of dentistry in 1992, after graduating from J.H. Thompson Academy. I’ve been Dr. Merski’s dental assistant for almost twenty years. I am married to Shawn and we have two lovely daughters, Lelaina and Holly.

Susie, Dental Technician

I have been with Merski Dental for more than 25 years. I enjoy directing the office flow to maintain our ‘on time’ goal everyday with lightening efficiency…earning me the nickname “Rocket”. I am happily married to Keith and we love spending most of our summer weekends camping, canoeing and enjoying the outdoors. I’m also an avid Steelers fan so fall and winter weekends are spent watching Steeler games.

Amy, Insurance and Billing

I began my career in the dental profession in 2010 as a graduate from Great Lakes Institute of Technology and have been a proud member of the Merski Dental team since May 2015. You will see me at the end of your visit to verify insurance information, arrange payment options and reschedule your next appointment. On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful family, great friends, attending concerts, kayaking and of course rooting on my favorite football team. . . Go Steelers!!
