The usual that I expect from Dr. Russ: great work and very caring.
Dr. McFarlane was super punctual and very nice. He answered all my questions and explained things in detail so that I can make an informed decision about my dental health. Highly reccomend!
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 my teeth 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!
Dr. McFarlane has been absolutely wonderful.. My husband and I joined his practice about a year ago and are very happy with all aspects of his practice.
Fantastic dentist! Will always recommend.
Thank you for installation of two perfectly matching, color full caps on my two front tooth!
Best dentist I have ever used!
Wisdom teeth extraction went smoothly and post-op information sheet guided me through the recovery. Dr. McFarlane and his staff are knowledgeable and caring- a hard combination to find.
As Always...you guys ROCK!
I was having a horrible day and assistant was so sweet and gave me a hug and tissue
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 in there about what's best for my health. I aways have a good experience with them. I almost look forward to going to the dentist now which I know sounds weird!
He is amazing! Best dental experience of my life. He is very unique and makes you feel comfortable. Would recommend to anyone looking for a dentist. I'm here to stay! Thank you!

Not very painful. No lingering pain.
Great experience, thanks!
Everyone in the practice is caring and very professional. Absolutely the best.
Dr. McFarlane has a rare combination of immense technical dentistry knowledge coupled with excellent bedside manner and attention to patient care. One without the other is far too common these days!
I love this dentist! He is a jack of all trades, from being an endodontist to making crowns. He's super sweet, passionate about what he does, and he is constantly learning new techniques to add to his practice. He even skipped lunch so he could finish my root canal. Thank you, Dr. McFarlane!
Dr. McFarlane and staff are really great and the office is nice too. I've been with the practice for about a decade. My copay is minimal, but to save a buck and find a closer dentist, I ventured out to two other practices - River Rock and Floss Dental. I was not impressed with the cleaning, exams or overall sense of aptitude at either and went back to Dr. McFarlane. He's very well educated and knows his stuff, and is very enthusiastic about dentistry. The hygienists and assistants are great and do very thorough jobs, and have good bedside manners.
This visit was in regard to an ongoing situation. The visit was very good as usual.
I absolutely HATE getting fillings, but needed one. Dr. McFarlane and his very sweet assistant literally made it painless. They were friendly and professional- totally took my mind off my anxiety about the procedure. Yay!
Extremely professional and personable. Highest recommendation!
I have been going to to a dentist all my life and this young man is all I ever wanted in a dentist. Most of my family goes to Dr. McFarlane. My wife who has passed away would concur.. A satisfied customer
Was a very pleasant visit even if it was the dentist! Very friendly staff and the Dr was great, very informative!
Always a great customer experience!
Dr. McFarlane and his entire staff are wonderful! Very professional but friendly and likeable! Very thorough cleaning, too!
I hadn't had any dental work in several years, so I was really anxious about my procedure. Dr. McFarlane put me completely at ease and walked me through the whole thing. He was wonderful!
Amazing performance by Dr McFarland. he restored at least 5 teeth in ONE visit. Most of the work was at the gumline (more difficult work)It was about an hour and a half treatment session. Most dentists would have broken this one up unto two or three visits.
Dr. McFarlane puts in the extra effort to provide a cheery bedside manner and make his patients feel unique to him. He did excellent work in preparing for my crown (waiting to have the permanent put on) and made sure that I was completely comfortable. He answered my questions in depth, and was very forgiving when I was almost late as a new patient having not filled out my forms and told me not to stress when there was a seeming issue with Care Credit. I overheard him talking to a child patient during their visit and the kids totally loved him. He seemed competent in is work and did not sweat when I wanted to watch everything he was doing.
Totally professional with a dose of fun. Great technique and totally compassionate.
Have always received excellent dental care from Dr. McFarlane and his staff.
He's the man. Great staff as well.
Dr. McFarlane is by far the best dentist I have ever visited! I went in assuming I needed a root canal after being railroaded and told what I should think at my last dentist. He listened to me and said we could try to save the tooth first instead of just giving up and resorting to a root canal. It's obvious how much he cares about each patient and their individual cases, plus he explains what he's thinking and doesn't treat you like an idiot. Best dentist ever. Ps His knowledge of TV is formidable and I love it!
Dr. McFarlane is personable, friendly professional and fun. He always seems to want whats best for you and goes over all your options until you are comfortable with the entire process.
He is a special person that deals with special needs people with dignity, kindness, humor and professionalism! He is excellent at his job and goes that extra mile for his patients!!!
He's very professional and friendly!
Some concerns I have about current dental problems actually turned out better thanks to Dr McFarlane's suggestions. I am relieved indeed.
Dr. McFarlane is an amazing dentist!! He really is so dedicated to his patients and gives his full attention and time to you during appointments. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else for a dentist!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him!!
I can finally smile!
I always find my visits to be very satisfying and pain free. I love the way he explains every step and the effort he makes to be the best dentist I ever have had (and there were many) and he is at the top of the list.
Dr. McFarlane is a very skilled professional dentist. One of my teeth had a cavity so large it was missing approximately 1/4 of the tooth. I feared it would require a crown, but Dr. McFarlane was able to fill so well with tooth resin. Other dentists I have visited would give me a small filling, and it would need many adjustments (asking me to bite down) to match the other teeth. Dr. McFarlane was able to precisely match the filling without needing me to bite down. I am amazed at his skill! I was able to chew food normally later that day! Also, he recommended that I see his chiropractor, after I told him I have had a tingling feeling in my arm. I have seen a shoulder specialist to no avail, but the chiropractor Dr. McFarlane recommended found my shoulder problem and he is fixing it! I am going to recommend to everyone to see Dr. McFarlane!
Russell and his colleagues are patient and kind. They explain procedures and the consequences of them. They let you know how to take of your self on a daily basis in a down to earth way. If some thing happened after my procedure they gave me clear resources on how to get help Thanks guys. I'll see you again soon.
Dr.McFarlane put mini implants to secure my upper denture .Full implants were not fessible because of my bone loss. My teeth seem secure and comfortable. Part of .Dr. McFarlene's excellence is due to his long serving staff.
He's been my family's dentists for a number of years now and among the best I've seen as an adult.
Dr. McFarlane is great! He was very personable and made me feel comfortable. He listened to my concerns and I didn't feel rushed. I highly recommend him!
Wonderful dentist! Very friendly and funny, yet professional. I felt like I was in very good hands and will definitely be going back to see him.
I was seen very quickly and everyone in the office was very friendly!
Dr. McFarlane was very personable and professional. He took his time fitting a crown and worked very patiently on it, like an artist sculpting marble. Lovely office staff too.
He really cares about my oral health as is very fun to talk to and takes a genuine interest in my life. Also very accommodating with my insurance and helps with billing. 10/10
Dr. McFarlane was wonderful. He made me feel comfortable and worked on preventative measures instead of criticizing what I had done in the past.
My experience with Dr McFarlane was awesome. He treated my dental emergency thoroughly and compassionately. Listening to my concerns, he gave me a full explanation of my options for treatment. His staff were also knowledged, compassionate and courteous. I highly recommend this practice and will definitely return in the future.
Dr.McFarlane is a great dentist! Would definitely recommend him to all my friends and colleagues.
I waited less than 5 minutes for my appointment...they were actually able to see me ahead of my scheduled time. As someone who has lots of anxiety when visiting the dentist, Dr. McFarlane put me at ease. He explained the procedure to me and shared my x-rays with me in-depth. I was totally comfortable and relaxed during my visit. A great central Austin Dentist!
Very professional, quick, and friendly. I highly recommend them.
Very professional and friendly. We discussed my current condition and the step we were to take to address my concerns.
