Dr. Mar was incredibly knowledgable, caring, and understanding. He transformed my mouth in the exact time frame and manner that was originally discussed.

Orthodontics is not my specialty, therefore, everyone in the office is knowledgeable, in my opinion. However, the service was horrible. Staff are not the friendliest or helpful. My son was late for his appointment once for 10min and I called to let them know that we will be late. They threatened to cancel his appointment. The very last time we were there, my son waited for 1hr outside in the waiting area. Then he waited for another 40min in the treatment area. Finally, we had enough of waiting, we walked off. What happened was they had forgotten about us!!! To say the least, i was not impressed with the service at Mars orthodontic. I would never recommend this office to anyone.

I am very sorry that this happened to you. Certainly if you are so considerate as to phone and tell us you will be late, we need to honour the respect shown to us. As far as waiting 40 minutes in the waiting room, that is not okay. I do not know the reason this wait would have happened; however, there is no excuse for it to occur. Our receptionists are taught that if appointments are running later than 10 minutes, they are to check in with the treatment staff and then communicate with the patient/family to guarantee they are updated and can wait a little longer. This is to assure that the flow is timely and efficient. I have scheduled an education meeting with our team to address this. Again, I am sorry you had two negative experiences, please accept my apologies. If you are comfortable, I would like to meet with you to apologize in person. Please call or text me on me on my cell, 780-905-8887. Respectfully, Dr. Ly T. Mar

Came to him with a canted angle and other issues from previous orthodontist and at the 2nd consulatation, he pushed us back to the put original saying that he offered "insight" even though he hadn't seen my in years. Will not go back as Mar can't be upfront and honest when he's see a challenge and wastes my time.

I am very shocked and sad to hear this feedback, but I understand that this is your perception. I would just like to share how I viewed this experience. I feel that I spent much time discussing your concerns and hearing about your visits to other orthodontists. I listened carefully, performed an exam, gave you feedback and tried my best to validate your concerns. I am sorry that you are frustrated that my recommendation was to return to your original orthodontist, as I could not offer better treatment options than previous orthodontists had given you. I felt that this was the most ethical, upfront advice to give you. I truly do wish you much success in your orthodontic journey. Respectfully, Dr. Ly T. Mar

I began my orthodontic treatment with Dr. Boychuk, and after his passing was transferred to Dr. Mar. I was very pleased then with the transformation, however over time, my teeth shifted. As it affected my bite, I went back to Dr. Mar. I was so pleased that he continues to be very innovative and updating his techniques. I got lingual braces that made the necessary changes while very few people knowing I had braces. He is an expert at what he does, and insists on quality work from his staff. I felt confident from the start that I would get the results I wanted, and could feel his knowledge and confidence every time he touched my braces. Thank you for restoring my smile Dr Mar.

Thank you so much for your feedback. That must have been a very sad time for you when Dr. Boychuk passed. He was missed by many patients. Lingual hidden braces certainly work well and it's great that most others do not even realize that you're on an orthodontic journey. Thank you also for the compliment about the staff. At Mar Orthodontics we are fortunate to have a group of caring individuals who are passionate about their job. Thank you again for your kind remarks. Respectfully, Dr. Ly T. Mar

I’m very impressed with results and service that I received at Mar Orthodontics. I didn’t think that at my age that I could have such beautiful teeth! Thanks to Dr. Mar’s expertise and hands on approach he made my smile amazing. I had the Lingual (Hidden) Braces people didn’t even know that I had them. I only told my close friends and they noticed the changes in my teeth, and how quickly it happened. The staff is excellent at what they do and more that willing to answer any questions that you may have. I mostly had Marie and Kayla who both were friendly and polite and really know their jobs. It was really convenient for me to have my appointments at the Sherwood Park location as I live on the very south side of Edmonton. Thank you so much, it was the best decision I ever made! I would and I do recommend Mar Orthodontics to everyone!!
