Accessing a Verified Google+ page for a business

I have a client with two G+ business pages with different names: One that I created for her under the name of her dentist office (Georgetown Family Dentistry:
and one that Google (or someone) created under the her name (Dr. Shradha Sharma: 

We want to merge them or, if that's not possible, access the Dr. Shradha Sharma page so we can edit the name to make it the name of the practice. The doctor does not want her name on the page. I believe they are registered under the same email account, but I can't access the Dr. Shradha Sharma no way, no how....and neither can Dr. Sharma. Help!
PS: I have gone to the About section of the Dr. Sharma page and the map page and requested an edit to change the name to Georgetown Family Dentistry several response from Google

since both listings are verified local listings their names can changed only through the dashboard where each of them are managed.


In case Dr. Shradha Sharma lost her/his  credentials to the dashboard where "Dr. Shradha Sharma" listing is managed it's possible to regain access.

Best practice is "Someone else verified my business"


If having again access to the listing pleas note the rules about naming  of individual practitioners of agencies or a practise as in here: Guidelines for representing your business on Google
