You called me when you could get me in earlier with my dentist for an emergency during the pandemic. Dr. Janis was clear about what she could do for me and even though it was painful and she apologized for hurting me, I totally understood and I KNOW she didn't do it on purpose, sometimes it's going to hurt before it gets better! Your people are so MUCH better than the office I left to come to you!!!

Great job. Thanks for seeing me on short notice.

I was unable to get my dentist because she was on spring break and when she got back I had to wait for 2 weeks to get in. I appreciate you taking a new patient as quickly as you did. Dr. John did the best job of freezing my jaw that I ever had. Almost no pain at all. He had a very difficult time pulling the roots out from the tooth that broke off and that whole side of mouth is still very sore after 4 days.

Jennifer in my hygienist and she is absolutely awesome. I have recommended you guys to a number of my friends.


I was taken back with Angie quickly after arriving. Angie is very thorough and professional. I appreciate being able to continuously have her do my procedure. I was pleased that the doctor had some ideas as to why I was continuing to experience pain in a tooth that had long ago received a root canal.

What is the email, I need to send my husband's med list? Thank you

The 1st time in my life where I did not feel the drill while a cavity was being repaired. You have no idea how much I appreciated that. Everyone whom I spoke with was polite and professional. Questions were listened to and answered immediately. I am very happy to be with this dentist.


Have always had a pleasant experience at McLaren. Neither hygienist nor dentist are “pushy.” Our previous dentist told my husband he needed thousands of dollars of work. When he declined, the dentist wouldn’t even say hello on his next visit. We both dumped her like a hot potato!

The young lady cleaning my teeth, was fantastic. She did an awesome job. I would highly recommend her. I will never go to another dentist office, because the staff at McLaren dental is great. They care about their patients. Outstanding services. Thank you.

Only weird thing was the dentist completed multiple filling and walked out. He didn’t even say goodbye or provide and instructions. He is not too busy to converse with his patients. Please be more aware of that in the future.

Love you guys! Everyone is always friendly. The hygienists and doctors explain everything in language that I can understand. Just a wonderful place to go for my teeth.

Hygienist was very friendly, listened and responded, teeth cleaned well. Dr talked about how my bite isn't awful, but may benefit long term from straightening. Answered questions about whitening, mentioning that invisiline patients get custom whitening free. When checking out Zach gave me estimate for invisiline saying if I purchase before end of month, he can give me custom bleaching at no cost. This seemed like a pressure sale, implying that if I hurry to sign up I'll get bleaching free - although Dr directly said all invisiline customers get it free (without any mention of time limit).

Great staff and always super friendly and accommodating!

As always the staff was very personable. Dr John had my issue taken care of quickly.

I tried to review on Facebook but the link to get there didn’t work. I love your office and your staff. You all make me feel so comfy and at home, and that’s not something many people can say about going to the dentist. Jean Ducham

Very friendly, fast and let me know what was going on with my tooth. Put me at ease.

My last cleaning was good experience. I experienced some pain but overall it was minimally invasive procedure. I also had an enjoyable conversation at the end with nice woman who took my payment and scheduled my next visit.

Very accommodating with my needs. Very professional.


Very good service.

Staff is always friendly and courteous. Team does an excellent job of explaining everything.

Very friendly, efficient service.

Very professional 👍

Jennifer is great with our daughter, we wouldn't have any other hygienist work with her! My only frustration with the visit is that we need to go to a pediatric dentist for a found minor issue and they don't have openings for a month for new patients and are foreseeing prolonging the issue over multiple visits because they don't know my daughter and won't take McLaren's diagnostics. It would have been more helpful to be able to just take care of it in our normal office timely and at less cost with now needing multiple visits to the peds office.

Awesome place. Love it there.

Your team is amazing!! Worth the drive from bay city. Beautiful establishment. Team knows me by name. Yesterday they went above and beyond by getting me in at the last minute and while short staffed. I appreciate that more than words can say. Thank you

They saw me immediately when I was in need of a dental emergency. They do a great job here!

Best dentists I've been to.

I like that they inform you of everything they are doing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They make going to the dentist a good experience.

Friendly caring and the injection went smoothly

I am so pleased with the work Dr. Janos did on three of my teeth last week - they look so much better and the whitening is already starting to work - I’m smiling again!

Great service. Very friendly.

I had a great experience with this practice. The staff was welcoming and the doctor was very personable and informative while discussing the treatment plan for my dental emergency. I highly recommend McLaren dental!

Got in quickly to start my implant! Thanks!

I appreciate Dr. John and Dr. Charles I appreciate their gentleness and how they really care and explain things. I also appreciate the gentleness of the assistant who cleaned my teeth. I am finally getting my smile back! Thank you to everyone at McLaren Dental!

Always friendly, professional, quick. I highly recommend you to others. 👌

Another painless hygiene visit. Thank you!

Easily the best dentist office I've ever been to. Very kind and gentle people who care about your health. Highly recommend.

Great staff and doctors!

Fantastic dental experience!

Kind people efficient, and comfortable. I feel confident I m receiving the best dental care in Midland.

I asked for time with Dr. Charles and he was scheduled so I could talk with him. He explained his observations and positions well and double checked to make sure all my questions were answered before we ended our conversation.

Awesome!! Love it here.

I enjoy the people, the office itself. So glad I found this dentist.

Friendly staff, welcoming building, professional and efficient

Really glad that you were able fit me in although there was 3 time changes which made things confusing. Thank you for continued great care!

Kate greeted me promptly. Didn't have to wait to be seen. Both Katie and Dr Charles we're pleasant, professional, helpful, efficient and always, willing to answer my questions. The rest of the staff were professional and helpful too.

Service was done at a very professional manner and both ladies were friendly and explained the complete process

Had a great app and everyone was so friendly! See you in May!

Always a pleasant atmosphere. Staff make my visits as short and painless as possible.

You guys are phenomenal and now you're stuck with me 😊

Fast and friendly. Relaxing waiting area, Not a super busy, Loud place. The doctors and their associates actually listen to what you have to say, And explain the reasoning for it. Definitely recommend!

Short wait time appreciated. The procedure was efficient and the caregivers pleasant.

I was very thankful you were able to see us in a timely manner.

Rachael did a fantastic job cleaning my teeth. She was very thorough and conscientious. She is also extremely friendly. Dr. John did a great job replacing a filling. He did it quickly with no muss and no fuss. Both he and his assistant were extremely pleasant to me. I am thrilled with the service I get.

The visit was pleasant, and the exam and cleaning were thorough and friendly. I even had a back massage while I was in the chair.

McLaren Dental is simple the best. I received another relaxed experience in a comforting atmosphere. The entire staff I interacted with during my visit was, once again, great. I was greeted warmly at the front desk and called back promptly. I needed some work done on a cavity and Dr. Janos knocked it out of the park. Dr. Janos has worked on me a few times and she always does a fantastic job. My visit only took about fifteen minutes and I didn’t really experience any discomfort. Than you Dr. Janos and the entire staff at McLaren for the amazing job you do.

It is a very pleasant place to come all the staff is very nice. I feel comfortable that I’m getting the information I need for a healthy mouth.

Very thorough, friendly, positive.

Employees always friendly. Remembers your name. Hygienists Jennifer very good. And Dr.s are thorough, honest, and puts your best interest first.

Ya'll are very nice and helpful too!

Very pleasant experience

It is always a very positive experience with McLaren Dental Associates. Very knowledgeable in dental care and in handling all dental issues. Staff very friendly and efficient.

Everything went well.

The entire staff here is top notch! Dr. Janos and Angie are so wonderful! They both take the time to explain everything they will be doing, they answer all of my questions. Angie knows I am terrified of coming to the dentist but she makes sure it is pain free the entire time! Angie has made my experience at the dentist absolutely wonderful and she always takes the time to make sure I am okay before and after!

As usual, excellent service.

Super cool hygienist and ephiciant doctor. Thanks!

Great costumer service, very glad I switched dentists!

Gentle and low stress treatment. That is why I came back when the opportunity presented itself.

Walked in with a capped tooth that came off, squeezed me in within a short while and I was on my way. Thank you thank you

Super office staff and doctors, take great care to solve and problem

You guys are very organized. Rachel was really friendly, professional and informative.

I think what you do particularly well is communicating with the patient. Hearing what is being done right before and while it’s happening really helps calm a patient down.

The staff was very friendly and helpful when I had to move my appointment to earlier in the day.

I always enjoy being greated by the friendly staff. Everyone is always so welcoming and does their best to make you feel comfortable. I give McLaren dental a 5/5 in patient care.

I am very satisfied with the 3 crowns I had done on my front teeth.

Our visit was great! We had he beat hygienist, Rachel, and she was great with me and my 2 year old daughter!

Front desk started it, to hygienist and dentist. It was all good.

Hello!, Loved the visit always do. They are always respectful and I try to keep the same dental hygienist every time, y'all have a great one there and she truly cares, love the docs there as well! Thank ya and have a wonderful day! Sincerely, Melissa Berg

Friendly, professional staff. Patient care is the first priority. So happy we are part of McLaren Dental!!!

I am so impressed with everyone in your office - very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and excellent at their jobs - bravo!

The greatest dentists i have ever been to in 45 years bar non, either go to them or risk your teeth money and dignity. Tell them steve rauch sent ya. No kickbacks just want them to know i appreciate them!!!!!

Called at 9:30 AM. Got in at 12:30 the same day. Taken on time. Biff, Bam, Done! I really appreciated you taking me so soon. Thanks, Kay A.

Overall a very professional staff and I’ve been very satisfied with the service. A possible opportunity for improvement would be a little less emphasis on up selling other services, occasionally feel as though that is a large part of my visits.


Very professional atmosphere.

Our entire family is patients of McLaren Dental and everyone is satisfied, from our youngest grandson age 7 to the grandparents, (this is where age is just a number). The staff is always friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a dentist, give them call you'll be glad you did. Thomas S Oslund

Great, friendly office and staff. Very comforting with pleasant atmosphere.

Friendly staff

Most everyone is very friendly and smiling. Have confidence in Dr. Charles.

Always friendly service. You also stopped being pushy with the work I still need to have done. That meant a lot since I have been having a couple rough years.

The staff is very friendly and courteous. Even though it was my very first visit, I was in and out in well under an hour. Dr. McClaren took the time to introduce himself and answer all my questions.

From the cool office staff. To Zak in finance. It was relaxing. Grade A dentist. Very comforting and gentle. Knows his stuff. Need a dentist please call these professionals.

You fit me in on the same day I called. Every one is friendly. You do good work. We are always very satisfied.


Very friendly staff that makes the appointment much more enjoyable!

Another great visit! Hygienist was very pleasant, which always puts me at ease. Dr. Charles pointed out some potential problem areas that I will need to address in the future. I appreciate being in the know about them.

Everybody is very friendly here I have no complaints

The entire staff was so friendly and made me feel so comfortable! I am terrified of the dentist and I haven’t been in years and I could’ve have asked for a better experience!

As someone who is anxious and a bit terrified if the dentist, everyone in the office made me feel welcome and finally made going to a dental office tolerable!

Everyone was very polite. Good to talk too Never have had bad experience yet.

Very welcoming staff. Zach answered my insurance questions with a pleasant, confident attitude. Thank you

The office staff was very helpful and the Droctor explained everything.

Everyone was very efficient and friendly. I appreciate the personalized coffee cup . Glad I switched dentist.

Great visit. Rachel did an awesome job.

Katie up front is so kind and helpful. Really enjoyed talking to her. Jennifer my hygienist is always wonderful. All the Doctors are so perisonalble and friendly. Thank you for a very nice visit

Just an overall pleasant experience, I mean, for going to the dentist.

Everything was perfect .

My hygienist was great! She let me know how everything was with my teeth. Dr. Charles was great as well.

Angela is the best!! We love her!!!

Very friendly staff. Dr is kind and attentive to your dental concerns.

We were able to schedule appointments in a timely manner after contacting the office. Everyone was very professional and personable.

Didn't understand why Doc didn't follow up on any prognosis ?? Guess u must have changed process ? Otherwise everything good.

Overall, another good experience throughout my appointment. I’m always greeted warmly when I arrive by the nice woman at the front desk and this time was no different. She also tidied up the waiting area while I was there, which I felt deserved appreciation. My hygienist was very nice as well and felt she did a very good job making me feel at ease and making my cleaning as painless as possible. She also communicated some things I need to be mindful of with my daily brushing. The doctor was professional and transparent when he checked me over. My only criticism was that when the appointment was setup months ago, it was for ten minutes earlier then what was communicated with my reminder the week of. Also, I usually have to wait a few minutes past my appointment before I’m called back. These are extremely minor things however and didn’t really take away from the positive experience I had. Another job well done by the staff I interacted with.

a 'Feeling of Home' environment. Doctor relatability to parent with dementia in addressing dental care needs, entire staff showed care and extreme patience in providing care to my mother. It was a relief to finally find a place that treated her with respect and understood her condition. Thank-you!

They got my 5 year old son to do what he needed to and he enjoyed his check up wasn't afraid or nervous Thank you

The entire staff is helpful and professional....very welcoming.

Excellent 😀 Fast, thorough, expensive,helps me keep my teeth healthy

So Pleased with my visit... 100% want you to fix my teeth... Thank You so Much 🌞 Talk Soon 😀

Excellent as always.

As usual - a pleasant visit to the dentist. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable.

Personnel are always friendly and great! There was a mishap with crown popping off but it was taken care of.Angie is a very detailed hygienist

Everyone was very friendly and sociable. I would recommend your office to anyone. On my first visit however the checkout guy was not as personable as the women and did not even smile.

Very prompt service, done quickly and efficiently. Thank you very much.

Excellent service !

Everything went well. No complaints. All personnel we're very nice.

My visit was prompt, friendly and thorough. They are very good at what they do, and I have confidence in their expertise.

I feared for no reason. Dr Charles is so gentle and reassuring in his manner and professional skills. He positively speaks to you as he works, nearly every move he makes and apologizes for any discomfort... Of which there were none but the ones I imagined in my mind. When there is discomfort, he adjusts to your need. At one point, I became so relaxed I nearly fell asleep. That's is comfort. Dr.Charles, Thank You Sir! - steve

I haven't had a bad experience ever at this office. Very satisfied.

Was very nervous about coming to dentist but my hygienist was very good at making me feel comfortable and at ease. I appreciated the office and Dr. getting me right in to fix my crown.

Everything went very well. Met the new dentist and she explained all my watches and warnings. Highly satisfied!

I really enjoyed meeting my dental hygienist. She was friendly ( not too chatty) and efficient. She had an awesome personality. I wish her best wishes on the delivery of her 2nd baby. Looking forward to seeing her in December.

Best teeth cleaning ever! Super clean teeth and no painful scraping. Everyone is very personable and accommodating.

I like the office and staff! Very professional and courteous.

I really appreciate the possibility to obtain an appointment on the same day. The appointment was on time. The issue I came in for got fixed on the same day. It was a great appointment. Thank you

Very good service

I had one tooth that needed to have some enamal added at the top, and that procedure went well. A perfect match in color. Both my husband and I had our teeth cleaned, polished, and I had fluoride at the end of the appointment. The entire staff are all very professional and very courteous, and we highly recommend their dental service.

My sons whole experience was great. The staff was amazing in their care, the speeiness of an emergency appointment was awesome. Only complaint is that my son's name had been spelled wrong on documents.

Every person in your building is great and wonderful. I tell this to my friends and family. Thanks for being so great and kind.

As ALWAYS quick and excellent service. You are greeted with a smile and an acknowledgment by your name. Dr. Mcclaren and entire Staff are very professional and dedicated with serving their clients. I have been a Patient with Dr. Mcclaren Association for a long time and will highly recommend this establishment to anyone. I give this facility and staff a 5(five star) rating. You should see my beautiful pearly white teeth. I smile constantly without feeling embarrass and having the assurance that my oral hygiene is well maintained. THANK YOU GO OUT TO MY FAVORITE DENTIST AND STAFF. I will see you all soon. Marge Reynolds

I’ve never been in a doctor’s office with so many amenities. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful.

Everyone was very professional & speedy.

Great experience as always

Personal service. Always so concerned with our comfort.

I like that Rachel is proactive in my dental care. I appreciate the suggestions and helpful tips for improving my teeth/gum health.

Appreciated the caring and support. It’s hard to give up a tooth. Also appreciated the explanations and ability to see products being used. Thank you Doctor John

Thank you so much for getting Emily's retainer done on the same day so she could head back to Chicago!

on time with excellent care and service

Love the place❤

I was satisfied with my first visit to McLaren Dental. I did notice that my first name is spelled wrong in your records. It should be Beverly, no "e" between l and y.

really comfortable setting.

The hygienist was amazingly kind and caring during my cleaning. She eased my anxiety and was extremely informative! Both dentists and all the assitants I saw were very kind and answered questions and ensured I was comfortable throughout. The front desk staff is very friendly and is knowledgeable of insurances and keeps you informed. Overall a great experience, especially for someone terrified of the dentist's!

Every one was very competent and friendly. Both Gert and Tom enjoyed our first visits.

Everything was perfectly clean, your staff there was awesome they went above and beyond for my care, even to the entrance and to the end of my visit, and they were very concerned about your pain level they were very concerned about your comfort is nothing more I could say except they were better than good I consider everyone there to be exquisite I will go again, I hope I can get my entire set of teeth fixed only buy them , for young lady Dennis that I had was awesome , her staff was awesome and her mentor (another Dentist) that came in , and helped her which made me very proud of him, I will refer everybody That I know to this dental Association sincerely Linda Dice 850-291-7759

Dr. Charles and Dr. John are always patient and answer any questions. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable!

I love your office and staff. Thanks for taking such good care of me.

Hygienist was very courteous, explained everything very well.

Thank you for taking your time with me, it was my first visit to the Dentist! The doctor was very straight forward and gentle.

I had a nice experience with the hygienist and doctor. All my questions we answered throughly and the guy at the front desk gave me good advice. Thanks for all your knowledge! See your team soon!

Awesome experience, great staff. Very professional

I loved my hygienist this appointment!! Unfortunately though I realized that when I got home she didn't give me a bag of goodies or offer any coupons. I wanted to see if there were some more affordable recommendations for sensitivity as I currently use sensodyne which is a little costly.

It was one of my best cleaning experience !

Friendly staff, lovely office and very short wait time. The exam rooms are great with tv and massage chairs. Dr. McLaren was so nice. Very happy I am now a patient!

This is a very nice place dr. John McLaren was extremely thoughtful helpful and informative they worked with me on every level it's a very nice place people were all friendly and my doctor was very thorough I feel comfortable going back I'm putting my smile in their hands. :)

Great place very comforting, do great job, everyone is super nice! Definitly recommended.

Good first time experience, I like that receptionist gave me the dollar portion of the bill prior to arriving.


Very nice and kind.

Very friendly. Everyone was truly concerned about my Oral Care. I am making a change to a healthier mouth. So excited to see the final results.

Everyone there is so nice to my daughter and they take great care of her! She is never scared to go to the Dentist!

Always helpful!

I loved the hygienist. She was so kind and considerate. I hope she can do my teeth again. She did an awesome job cleaning my teeth.

I had a wonderful experience with McLaren dental no issues like the staff and they are so nice I have had some awful experiences with other dentistry but I love these people

On 12-18-18, apparently I broke off part of a tooth (I'd thought it was only a filling that'd come out). Ya'll were able to get me in & Dr. John was able to get things under control until my scheduled appt next month. You guys rock!

Easy in, easy out!

All good

Great service with a smile!

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.

I did have a great visit. The Dental Hygienist was fantastic and the Doctor was great. The office are always very friendly and courteous. Great place
