Meet Dr. Dan Mertz

Dr. Dan MertzDr. Dan Mertz
Dr. Mertz was born and raised in Calimesa, California and grew up enjoying his school and church years at the Calimesa S.D.A. church. Dr. Mertz’s dad was a dentist and he spent every Sunday cleaning his office and watching him look at xrays, which started his interest in being a dentist. After graduating from Loma Linda Academy, he attended Pacific Union College where he received his B.S. degree in Biology and then went on to receive his DDS from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1990. After graduating he had the privilege of working in his father's dental practice, until he passed away a short time later.

In 1994, his young family moved to Auburn, California where he lived for 21 years. They tremendously enjoyed the Sierra foothills and the community where he served as a dentist. However, in 2015, he felt God was leading them to Keene, TX.

Dr. Mertz, his wife Karen and their 4 children enjoy many outdoor activities and look forward to exploring the Walla Walla Valley. They are excited about their move to Walla Walla and look forward to meeting each of you in the office and having the opportunity to get to know you and provide quality dental care.
