The office is closed for one week once a month which is extremely inconvenient.

Dr. R. Bruce McFarlane's response
Dear Writer: sincere thanks for sharing your concern. The closure has to do with Dr. McFarlane's second office in Beverly Hills, and his lecturing- both which keep him at the top of his game. There will be some changes this summer that will remedy this situation. We sincerely apologize if the absences have caused you inconvenience- and assure you there is always help available in the event of an emergency while Dr. McFarlane is away.

Most awesome ortho service around! If I showed up early, I got in early. Dr. B and his assistants are the best!

Dr. McFarlane did my braces back in 1985. The result far exceeded my wildest expectations, excellent alignment, bite and visually perfect. Today I visited a new dentist in Ottawa and he told me that my orthodontist must have "been a perfectionist!" My new dentist was so pleased with Dr. Mcfarlane's work that he pointed out several features of Dr. McFarlane's finished design that I may not have understood but added to my perfect tooth alignment.
Not that I was surprised by my new dentists words as I have heard a variation on this theme my entire adult life and EVERY dentist I have had asks who my orthodontist was. Thank you Dr. You did some excellent work that 20+ years later stills looks and functions perfectly!

Dr. McFarlane is amazing!!! He is always happy and makes you feel like you are his only patient! Both my son and I now have perfect teeth, which we are very proud to show off to everyone. Son #2 can't wait for his turn!

Dr. McFarlane is FANTASTIC! He is ecstatic & always happy! He is pure joy! Our son just had his braces removed after 2.5 years & thanks to Dr. McFarlane who is an exceptional, outstanding orthodontist, my son has a million dollar smile. Pretty amazing for a 15.5 year old who would not show his teeth when having his picture taken! Thanks a million Dr. McFarlane for his million dollar smile! Blessings on you!

Was referred to Dr. McFarlane by my dentist for Orthodontic work. Being older, I was somewhat apprehensive about the whole process. While treatment was approximately 20 months, I found Dr. McFarlane and his staff to be friendly, courteous, and extremely helpful and knowledgeable throughout. The results were beyond my expectations and I would highly recommend Dr. McFarlane to anyone.

I am currently on the "Braces Journey" with Dr. McFarlane and his staff. The experience so far has been terrific! Dr. McFarlane has a welcoming and warm manner and is eager to accommodate in any way he can. As a patient I never feel rushed or unimportant - exactly the opposite! Staff are friendly, the office environment is relaxing and professional, and the care has been exemplary to this point. For the majority of my treatment, my attending dental assistant has been Jenn. She has been outstanding! Her manner with patients, her professionalism, and her technical capabilities are second to none. As someone who doesn't love going to dentists, each appointment I look forward to seeing Jenn, knowing that I am in excellent care. Thank you, Jenn!

Dr. McFarlane is terrific, extremely knowledgeable and, as he says when he introduces himself, a perfectionist. This worked to my advantage, because we ran into a few surprises during my orthodontic treatment. Dr. McFarlane supported me wholeheartedly throughout (especially in terms of getting surgery re-scheduled) and researched alternative materials to keep my allergic reactions manageable. I was also regularly amazed at how relatively little pain I experienced over the course of the 2 1/2 years of treatment. The front desk staff are wonderful and typically very friendly (Sara was especially good), and the technicians are consistently excellent in terms of their work. My only criticism is that the technicians could be a bit friendlier when they first greet patients. All in all, I would highly recommend Dr. McFarlane (and already have) to anyone, and particularly adults, needing orthodontic treatment.

Dr McFarlane is an amazing orthodontist! A friend reccomended him since I decided to get braces as an adult and he made the experience exciting and comfortable as possible. His staff is polite considerate and always there to help and answer any questions. Dr McFarlane went above and beyond as an orthodontist. He is pleasant, trustworthy, and always contacted me back quickly if I called or emailed him about anything. I had incognito braces which were perfect because noone could even tell I had braces. I recently got my braces removed and am so happy with the results, I love to smile now. I highly recommed him! Thank you Dr McFarlane you gave me an incredible smile that I can have confidence about!

Bruce and his team create a warm friendly and inviting atmosphere. As an adult wearing braces and going through jaw surgery he kept me informed throughout the process and before /i knew it the braces were off and it was over. I am pleased with the outcome. My daughter was also treated by Bruce and his team and she now smiles like a star! She also had to undo some gum surgery which went very well!! Thanks Bruce.
