Meet Dr. Josh Merrell


Dr. Josh Merrell joined the Hilander Dental team in Sept. 2018.  He moved all around the country growing up and lived in 7 different states including Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Idaho, Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Dr. Merrell attended BYU graduating with a degree in Exercise Science and then went on to graduate from The Ohio State College of Dentistry.  He comes to Hilander Dental after practicing in Whitefish, Montana for a couple of years.

Dr. Merrell and his wife Emily got married in 2013 and have a 18 month old daughter named Parker and they are expecting their son in March 2019. They love the outdoors, and spend a lot of time hiking, camping, skiing, golfing, and travelling. This love of the outdoors led us them to live in Whitefish, MT after dental school where they enjoyed all that Montana had to offer. Dr. Merrell is also an avid Green Bay Packer fan from his time spent living in the Green Bay area growing up. 

As a dentist the thing Dr. Merrell enjoys the most is helping others gain the confidence and self-esteem that comes from a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile. He prides himself in helping people have as comfortable and pain-free experience as possible.
