Dr. Merkley was recently featured in the Southeast Missourian! Read on to learn more about her story.

Dr. Patty Merkley is a licensed dentist and owner of Southeast Smiles, a pediatric dentistry office new to Cape Girardeau.

Merkley grew up in Cape Girardeau, but left for dental school and other opportunities. She returned with her family last year and decided to open her own practice.

“I finished my residency in 2013 in the summer, and I practiced with another specialist in St. Louis for a year, and that whole time I knew I wanted to do my own thing, and this is my home. I went to high school here and went to nursing school here before dental school, so I knew I wanted to come back here,” she says.
