Proudly Supporting the Scottish Rite Hospital
At Today Dental, we strongly believe in supporting our community and the people who help. The Scottish Rite Hospital has a personal connection to our founder. When his daughter was born with a club foot, the generous doctors, nurses, and medical professionals that donate their time and money provided exceptional medical service and specialist care, all through the generosity of donations. For parents straight out of college, this was a true blessing.
Because the Scottish Rite Hospital is almost entirely run by donations, and all services, including surgeries, specialist care, check-ups, and more, are provided to families without cost, it is important to us at Today Dental that we do our part to give back to this great organization that helps so many. With the Orange Shoe Theory, we hope to give back to this awesome service for kids.
Dr. Bryant Aiken was raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with two brothers and one sister. He graduated high school from Ozark Academy in 1973. He then graduated from Southwestern Adventist University in 1977 and went on to graduate dental school from the University of Texas Dental School San Antonio in 1981. He practiced dentistry in Cleburne, Texas most of his career, doing all aspects of general dentistry with an emphasis in cosmetics. Dr. Aiken has also trained at the Las Vegas Institute (LVI Global). He currently resides in Cleburne, Texas and has been married to his wife Debbie for 36 years.

Dr. Mertz was born in San Diego, CA but grew up in Pflugerville, TX. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from Angelo State University where she majored in Biology and minored in both Chemistry and Psychology. Dr. Mertz then went on to obtain her DDS from the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston.
Dr. Mertz was drawn to dentistry because it allows her to work with her hands while providing a service to patients that can build confidence through their smile! A great aspect of dentistry to Dr. Mertz is that she can invest not only in her patients’ oral health but in their lives as well. Dr. Mertz is comfortable working with adults and children, and loves that this profession allows for her to treat the whole family!
When she is not at work, you might find Dr. Mertz running along Katy Trail, embracing her competitive spirit by playing sand volleyball or creating new memories while traveling.
Just met with office today they are able too save teeth that I've been told are unsavable so relieved too hear good news. The staff and Dr. were friendly, welcoming and made evrything so comfortable after many years of neglecting my dental needs.
Awesome staff! Was referred by a friend who I thought he was exaggerating about the service but it was dead on, super nice and super charming giving you the best option for the service and quick service.
It was absolutely lovely there, I went as an alternative to my previous dentist (who was far too expensive) and it was great! Can't beat the price and friendly service, they made me feel so comfortable. This is definitely my go to dentist from now on!
I had an amazing experience!! I was seen almost immediately, the staff was so friendly and professional. The doctor was very gentle and informative. I will definitely be coming back as I have found my new dentist!!
Great set of dentist. They are very friendly, quick and at a great price. I gave gone to dentists all over the states. This practice is one of the best I have gone to, and will continue to go to.
I had a pretty tight time schedule and the staff went out of their way to get my work done promptly. The work done was excellent, painless and the staff was friendly and professional. Highly recommend!
Absolutely loved it. Was terrified of dentist but these guys are awesome! They were straightforward with me and made sure I was okay during the whole thing. If I have any problems I'll be coming back
Very nice staff and professional. Had to get a tooth pulled out and the dentist was very careful and made sure I was comfortable since I was already nervous about an experience I've had with a different place before. Pricing was also good! Really recommend this place and will be going back for future dental work.
Everyone here is so kind and helpful. They are great at making my children feel at ease and comfortable, especially during tooth extraction! They have been great at keeping cost the lowest they possibly can. I have recommended them to all my friends and family.
The people were great and Sheron was amazingly helpful and understanding. The business is very affordable and would recommend to all my friends and family.
It had been at least ten years since i went into the dentist after a really bad experience with my last dentist. So needless to say i was a bit scared about going... but they made it a point to make sure I was at ease and comfortable, as well as do their best to work with my budget. They even sat with my 2 year old daughter and made the dentist office look like fun, showing her all the tools and how they work. We all left with smiles. I highly recommend Orchard dental to everyone. I look forward to going back and getting my teeth regularly cleaned now. All my dentist fears are gone! Thank you!
My experience here was well above anything I could've hoped! Everyone was beyond kind, patient, and down-right lovely the entire time. They welcomed me with a smile and answered all the silly questions that I had, they even seemed interested/invested in learning more about me as a person. I came in for a simple exam and left with a cleaning, polish, and smoother teeth. I am thoroughly satisfied! They're awesome! I will definitely be going back there and I don't even live near their offices.
The Today Dental family is wonderful. They are very nice from the front to the back office. The Dr. is very thorough and informative. He took his time and made me feel as comfortable as possible. This office has speedy service. I will definitely continue my oral care with them and I will recommend them to my family and friends.
Went in today because a cavity had formed and Dr. Nguyen took care of it! All the pain I was experiencing went away and my tooth feels new again, although it feels weird not having a hole to fidget with anymore. It's also great that they have ceiling mounted TVs to watch Netflix while I was being operated on.
Quick & painless, I won't go ANYWHERE else but right here. When I told them my dental HISTORY, they were very good to pay close attention to me. They were willing to listen to what previous dentists have suggested for me... Who EVER does THAT? But they do right here!

LOVE this place and the people that work here. They are very accomodating, patient and pleasant. Great for children and adults. Reasonable pricing and a Discount for patients without insurance. I would highly recommend this place!
I’m from NY. I moved to TX last year & was very nervous about finding a new Dentist! I started coming here last year & have been very happy! The office staff is patient, helpful & wonderful. I’ve seen a couple of the Doctors and they have all been great! They all make you feel relaxed & comfortable! Thank you!
