Answered all my questions and good care. Thank you

Thank you so much for getting me in so soon! My tooth was infected and your team to immediate attention to my needs. The service is outstanding ! Thanks again

The practice was running late when I was there but the staff was super apologetic and did everything they could to make sure I knew my appointment was important to them. They made the best of it for sure. Great service.

Excellent service. Will definitely Continue to recommend the office to others.

Competent and friendly!

Always thankful for a kind and gentle hygenist.

Always great service and friendly staff

Your staff is always extremely helpful, friendly and they go the extra mile when caring for me and my family. We love McLaren Dental!

Super service with professional staff!

Extremely friendly and very good treatment from both the dentist and hygienist!!! 👍

Always take the time to answer my questions and very competent staff. Office is very comfortable and minimal wait times. Great dentists that make something comfortable as possible. I highly recommend.

As always, my visit today was very pleasant. My appointment time was prompt and I was seen almost immediately upon arriving. The entire Staff is polite and professional. I have been a patient with McLaren Dental Association for almost twenty years. I highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for an outstanding and professional dental services. It is a pleasure to know your teeth and oral health is a priority to the McLaren Association. You can feel confident enough not to worry about the care of your teeth and demonstrate with a BIG SMILE. I can't say enough about how accommodating this facility is and how their gratitude is expressed to their patients.

We had a great visit.. Rachel is amazing and we are so appreciative of the relationship we have been able to build w her. She takes such good care of us. The kids love her!!!

The male receptionist is not friendly or accommodating.

I called as a new patient with an emergency situation and they were able to get me in the next morning. Everyone was very professional and took the time to explain all of my options, costs, and copays before removing my broken tooth. The following morning I even received a call from them just to see how I was feeling. I plan on making this my regular dentist from here on. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone who asks !

Thank you ALL for your skill, kindness, respect for me as an anxious patient, and always giving me the best dental care I could ever hope to receive each and every time I am there. Anyone out there needing dental care? McLaren Dental is your answer. You will be thanking yourself you chose them!

Dr Charles was very thorough but careful.

My visit for cleaning and exam went very well, hygienist was attentive and helpful.  She understood the effort I put into oral care.  Dr Charles was honest and thorough.  But I was not happy with check out, believe his name was Zak.  He is there for clerical and insurance questions but he acted like he was my dentist/hygienist.  While he was not part of my exam or the conversation in the exam, he lectured me about what would happen to my tooth if I did not schedule a crown.  I was very uncomfortable with him and will tell him so if he tries this again with me.   This has never happened to me in your office before or other dentist offices.

Angie does a great job of explaining things and making me feel comfortable. Met the new doctor this time, Melissa. We will MEDC yo get yo know each other and that will come with time 😊

Everyone went

Timely, kind and effective. Excellent visit

Aside from just a cleaning the staff always shows concern for my health in general. I do appreciate that. Every one involved preformed their job professionally. The office is always clean and well appointed. I am very happy with the service received.

All of the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Especially like how they'll take the time to talk to you about your future dental plans and expenses.

Both the doctor and his nurse are both efficient and caring. Afterwards, the gal at the desk was able to help me better understand what my insurance actually covered.

What a friendly clean place. This was far most one of the nicest groups of people in this feild I have ever met. Honest and very accommodating to answer questions and listen to what you have to say. Thank you so much for easing my worries

The staff up front was very friendly and helpful. The hygienist was very polite. She explained everything she was doing the entire time. The doctors are great. The way they talked and treated me made me a bit more comfortable sitting in the chair. This is by far the best dentist I have been too. I know what to expect everytime I show up. Thanks Scott

Very professional but also very kind. I did not feel like my experience there was burdening the hygenists or dentists there which I have experienced at other places in the past

All is bueno! Love the friendly staff.

As always, I'm very satisfied and impressed with my dental treatment and results. The staff really extends polite, concerned, helpful and professional. The office is attractive, clean and comfortable...very patient friendly. The equipment is current and Top Of The Line. Of course Dr Charles and Dr John are top level Dentists and great guys. They better be or they'll be hearing from me....their former employee and senior U of M Dental Hygienist. Seriously, Karhy Gaffke

Im very happy with the care i received, will definitely came back!

Staff is always friendly and takes great care to ensure your visit is a great experience regardless what it is that you’re in for.

Great customer service!

Experience was great felt comfortable with what was done and the recommendations he made for fixing my other teeth

Each visit has gone well. Visits to the dentist fill me with a lot of anxiety but the staff has done a good job of making sure I’m as comfortable as I can be. The staff has done a great job of making sure I do not feel any pain and if I do, they’ve been patient with me and accommodating, which has been reassuring. The communication of what they’re doing has been good and their calming presence has been infectious. The atmosphere has been very professional but I would love it to be a little more genial and warm to really feel comfortable. Overall, the staff members I’ve had contact with have done a very good job.

You guys are always great!

I was very pleased with my pain free visit.

Always a wonderful experience at the McLaren Dental office.

Very little discomfort, temporary crown feels good, no problems so far

Thank you very much for getting me in at such a short notice to accommodate my other appointments. The dental hygienist was very friendly and took my nervousness in stride. The dentist was very nice.

Friendly, professional and efficient staff.

My appointment was for cleaning and x-ray to determine the condition of my teeth and gum. The hygienist tech did a superb job. The entire staff is very friendly. I have been a patient with the McLaren Dental Association for over fifteen years. Would not mind doing a tv commercial for your establishment.😂

The best!

I love how efficient this business is. I never have to wait for my appointment. Although, the waiting room is very nice. All the staff is very friendly and courteous, yet still professional. I love that I am called by name and no one calls me “dear, honey, etc. I definitely recommend this dentist office.

Great personalized service

Will you please fix All of the chairs. Some are great, but some really are lame. I want the vibrate to actually work OK? I actually ask for Room 4 because it was the only one that the chair worked right. Now room 4''s chair sucks too. These rub and vibrate chairs are a Godsend when I visit. Never like having my teeth worked on, but the working chairs used to be a real pleasure. Again fix ALL of them Please. I wanna actually feel the chairs work not the dentist work.

Very friendly professional cleaning. Not uncomfortable at all.

Best service for dentist office

I was called back right at my appointment time and was treated very well by everyone!

Everything was done well!!!

I just love how everyone is so friendly and personable at your office. I NEVER feel like a number or inconvenience. Thank you for making my dental visits a pleasurable experience!

Both the Dentist and his assistant seemed both professional and caring. On a highly emotional day, the loss of a tooth, they helped me make it through the experience.

very friendly staff and always accomodating.

I like that the McLaren Dental Associates give detailed descriptions of my treatment, and methods that can be improved or are recommended for my overall dental health. Their office has a friendly, efficient, and knowledgable staff. They always keep me informed about what will be covered by my insurance or an extra cost for me out of pocket. Our whole family agrees they make going to the dentist a better experience for all of us!

Great dentist and great staff always able to work with me on my busy schedule. Highly recommend Mclaren dentist.😀😀😀😀😀😀

Another great visit at McLaren Dental! Had my teeth cleaned, learned I need a bite guard to discourage further recession of my gums. They looked up my insurance info, then made the casts for it while I was there!

I am very pleased with the doctors and staff. I would highly recommend them.

Thank you for caring. Always pain-free and comfortable.

Doctor is great along with his personal

The only thing I would suggest is that you explain stuff to us the patients more.

I really appreciate that you were able to fit me in one the same day for the crown procedure. It went very well.

I love everyone at McLaren Dental Associates. They are always kind, friendly, and patient with all my quirks. I have always been anxious (and that's putting it mildly) about dental visits because of all my negative experiences since childhood. McLaren Dental Associates always ensures that I am in my comfort zone. I no longer hesitate to keep my appointments. McLaren Dental Associates are awesome and I highly recommend them! 😄

Very friendly

My hygienist was very professional, and relaxing. I almost took a nap in the chair!! I think that says it all..

While the dentist office isn't a place I like spending money, Dr. Charles does a 1st rate job, the staff is very good and I am happy to recommend you to others

Quality service in a friendly environment. I can’t recall if I saw Dr. John or Dr. Charles... but to tell you the truth... I have never seen them both together... are they really two different people???
