Would the "merge" function in the editor be what you're after?
Just select the individual polygons you want to merge, either manually
or through a "select by attributes" (by size/area I'm assuming) query,
while in an editing session and choose merge from the dropdown menu...

Subject: [UW-GIS-L] Splitting and combining polygons with area
I am working with a set of polygons that represent forest stands. Some
stands are represented by multiple polygons and I need to combine them
to create single units of a threshold area. Other stand polygons are
larger than a threshold area size that I need to work with. A friend of
mine helped me figure out combining these via dissolve and splitting
larger polygons via the editor "cut polygon features" tool. However, the
set of polygons I am working with is quite large. Does anyone have an
idea for how I might go about automating this process a bit more? Thank
