I chose this office because it came highly rated but unfortunately my first appt was my last. The receptionist alone was enough to make me not want to come back. She was rude, harsh, and unwelcoming. Dr McFarlane was nice, but I didn’t feel comfortable in that office whatsoever.

Dr. McFarlane and his staff were just amazing! I made an appointment after finding him on ZocDoc for a broken tooth and when I called the day before they squeezed me in that same day to help me get my toothfixed! Dr. McFarlane made my new tooth look even better than my original one! They were so accommodating and careful! They made sure I was comfortable and reassured me that everything would be okay. I'm definitely coming back for cleanings and x-rays. I found my new dental office!

I never had a dentist who kept up so well with the latest technology and used his excellent skills to keep my teeth as beautiful and healthy as possible. I have recommended him and his friendly staff to family and friends.

Dr. Mcfarlane was very attentive to my intolerance to some topical sedition and when it wore off he quickly and painlessly reapplied some so that I did not have to have tooth pain.

I spent the first 25 years of my life going to the same Dentist, so one of the things I was worried about after moving to Austin was finding a good replacement. I did some research and saw some good reviewsfor Dr. McFarlane so I figured I would check him out. He was the first dentist I visited here and he'll be the only Dentist I go to while I live here. I'm not super up to date with all the breakthroughs in modern dental procedures, but based off the few appointments I've had, it seems like Dr. McFarlane approaches dentistry from a very modern approach. I had a crown fitted and he completed the entire procedure in under two hours. That includes the tooth prep, creating the mold, and fitting it. Not only is Dr. McFarlane a great dentist, he also really tries to build a rapport with his clients, and his friendliness comes across as totally genuine and not forced. I honestly believe he is just a extremely friendly and empathetic person. Other than Dr. McFarlane, his staff is also extremely professional and helpful. They are always willing to engage in conversation and offer great advice on dental upkeep. The entire friendly and professional culture of their office, I believe, is indicative of how well run their practice is. I've never had to wait for an appointment, and when they were ahead of schedule they even called me to let me know I could come in early. I will definitely be recommending Dr. McFarlane to anyone looking for a good dentist in Austin.

Always pleased to visit! All staff are very professional, prompt, welcoming and are on top of my insurance needs. Lisa, my dental hygienist, is so caring, talented and informative. She always gives me great feedback on how to best keep myteeth and gums healthy. Dr. McFarlane is thorough and attentive to my procedural needs. It was great that he fixed my two lower front teeth that had been chipping for several years before my first visit. He had kept an eye on them during previous visits, and we mutually decided that it was time to prevent more damage. Super easy and efficient! Thank you!

I've been going to Dr. McFarlane for a few years now and frankly him and his staff are some of the nicest and most professional people I've visited. They're all very personable and they educate me every time I go inthere about what's best for my health. I aways have a good experience with them.
