10/02/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. MacPherson has a great sense of humour that really helps to relax you. He has always been extremly thorough, and taken the time to explain the details to me. I've never felt like I was getting "the wool pulled over my eyes" at the Sackville Dental Centre.  Respond

22/03/12 5 5 5 5 I am so happy with my experience with Dr.MacPherson. I recently had 2 other root canals by a dentist and an endodontist, neither experience as great as this root canal. I feel that he really cares about not only the work he is doing on each visit but looks at the overall well being of his patients.Very kind and gentle  Respond

15/10/11 5 5 5 5 I was told I had to either have a root canal or have my tooth pulled. Dr. M came to the rescue and decided to see if a filling would work instead. So far it is. He saved me a lot of pain and unnecessary work and I am so thankful. Has to be one of the best dentists in Nova Scotia, hands down. The rest of the staff is also very kind and compassionate. I feel so much more relaxed there than any other place. 
Paid (or co-pay): $10

16/09/10 5 5 5 5 You will NEVER be sorry for going to see Dr John. I was TERRIFIED of the dentist due to a bad experience as a kid but he was recommended to me when I had an emergency 20 years ago... I have never looked back. My son, now 13 just got his braces off and told me recently that if Dr John ever moved we'd have to follow him. Incredible staff. I laugh when I go there - anyone would be very lucky to see this doctor. NEVER does unnecessary procedures, has complete respect for my fears. Awesome.  Respond

28/10/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. John has been my dentist since he first went into practice with Dr. Camp. He immediately diagnosed a periodontal problem that was missed by by previous dentist for years which saved my teeth. I have continued to have him for my family dentist dispite having moved 50 km away. Besides being professional and skilled, he has the best chair-side manner you will find anywhere and he has the best staff you will find anywhere. I will continue to see him until I leave the province (or the world), or lose all my teeth, whatever comes first.  Respond

24/12/08 5 5 5 5 Best Dentist EVER! As a child I was TERRIFIED of going to the dentist. At 14 I went to Dr M and he was VERY patient and understanding of my phobia. Now in my 30's I actually look forward to going to the dentist and go every 6 months. Dr M has never done any work that was not needed and trust me, he could have had he wanted. It has been at least 15 years since I have had anything more then a cleaning and my teeth are looking and feeling great :)  Respond
