10/11/13 5 5 5 5 I've been hearing about this website from friends and decided to see what people were saying about my dentist. It makes me so happy to read these comments about Dr.McDonald. I've also been seeing him for years and I've never had a negative experience. He is very gentle and calm and very knowledgable about other aspects of your health than just your dental needs. Continue the great work.  Respond

01/04/13 5 5 5 5 Ian was great. This was the first time he has worked on my teeth, but I have been hearing about how great he is for years. He was extremely gentle especially with the freezing. I was difficult to freeze, and took a lot of his time. He was professional, yet very personable. The staff at his office is very friendly and thorough. I would return to him in a heart beat. So appreciative of his care on my teeth.  Respond

03/11/11 5 5 5 5 They always strive to make sure things are covered on my dental plan so I don't have to pay anything. The office staff and hygienists are totally excellent! Dr McDonald is by far and away the best dentist I've ever been to see. He's fast, accurate and I always walk out with the feeling the I had good work done! Of course I'm often pretty frozen then - but that's a good thing! I've never experienced anything but the mildest short term pain with this doc! He respects the fact that I need more freezing than the average person and am super nervous sometimes!  Respond

05/07/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. McDonald is absolutely the best dentist in Vancouver. If you are looking for an HONEST opinion on your dental situation, then Ian is the right choice. His staff is beyond compare and you leave feeling as if you came to enjoy an amazing view as opposed to having dental work. He is a true gem that goes beyond his limits to help his patients in every way. Sincerely, Fran  Respond

15/04/11 5 5 5 5 I went to see this dentist for a second opinion on recommendation from the office staff after I visited a new doctor who told me I had 5 cavities. I get my teeth cleaned twice a year and was surprised at this news. I went to see Dr. M and he told me I only had 1 cavity, the rest of the 'dark spots' on the xrays were not cavities and the fillings didn't need repair. What an honest and ethical professional! He saved me thousands of dollars!  Respond
