If you want the best dentist and hygienist ever, go to Dr. Bruce and Leslie. Have been using them for over 10 years. Lots of management changes in this office with in those 10 years but those 2 have always taken good care of me. I have had a couple billing issues after staff changes but Dr. Bruce has always worked with me to get things worked out. I honestly feel like they have my best interest at heart, not their pocketbook.

I would recommend this place entirely, the staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly, with the exception of Wesley or Leslie the hygienist, who failed to communicate fees on certain services during my cleaning. Overall, I’d recommend this place, front desk staff is friendly especially Melody and she makes sure you are well taken care of during your visit!

I came from CA and needed to see a dentist to have a procedure done. I nervously made the phone call to the office and Melody who answered the phone had all the charm and southern hospitality I had always heard about and completely put me at ease. Honestly, It was the best experience I ever had at the dentist and the procedure I needed was taken care of in minutes. I may have to plan a trip every six months just to have them do my dental work. Many thanks again Dr. Bruce to you and your excellent staff.

Last year, my friend recommended Dunwoody Family to me when I had some dental needs. At the time, my insurance provider did not cover this location. I’ve recently started a new job, which provided a new insurance company for me. After searching my insurance network, I was happy to see Dunwoody Family was listed! I was able to schedule and appointment easily and quickly. When it came time for my appointment, the front office staff was very pleasant to deal with. Donna, I believe her name was, was very polite, and answered any questions I had. She even recommended a place to take my boyfriend out to dinner that weekend (the meal was fabulous, btw!) I always enjoy meeting a fellow foodie. The hygienist was very gentle and the dentist worked quick and efficiently. I usually have a fear of getting dental work done, but this office put me to ease. I’ll definitely be returning to this location. Thanks!

Dr Bruce is an expert at injections for numbing prior to treatment; very little discomfort. He is also an extremely talented DDS for cosmetic dentistry. He was assisted today by an equally talented assistant Jason, who inquired about an additional filling that needed attention and I jumped at the opportunity to get all my dental work done at one time and without a second appointment and injections. Great practice! Highly recommend if you’re looking for a DDS in Dunwoody area!

I visited Dunwoody Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today for the first time and had a wonderful experience! My dental hygienist was Nicholette and she was amazing!! She was very thorough and informative about the process. My exam with Dr. Bruce went very well also, he was very funny and also extremely informative. The office is absolutely beautiful and very welcoming, I’ve never had a dental experience like this before.

I became a patient of Dr. Bruce 17 years ago. I recommend him to anyone ever looking for a dentist. He has always provided great care. And he doesn’t prescribe work just for the sake of making money. I rarely require more than a regular exam and cleaning. His staff is great as well. I cannot speak highly enough of the practice.

Obadiah S. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Google)


This guy is awesome. I’ve gone to him since I was a kid and have never had any complaints. Staff are courteous, Dr. Bruce is great. What more can I say? I’m fortunate to have never had a cavity, so I’ve only used him for cleanings, but it’s been nearly 20 years and there are no complaints. They remember you, and treat you like a person. In fact, a few years ago, they stopped taking my insurance, they offered to make a deal with me as I have been such a loyal customer. Great people, and highly recommended!

Trying a new dentist can be scary, let’s be honest going to the dentist is scary. But I am very happy I went to their office. They are very kind, friendly, and thorough. They took the time to explain things to me and weren’t pushy at all. From the front desk staff, assistances, and doctors everyone was great.

Dr. Bruce has been my dentist for 40 years and the only way I can tell he’s aged are the sprinkles of grey in his hair. Obviously, I have great confidence in him because he’s been there for me through several challenges, and still keeps smiling. I would highly recommend him and the best team of assistants anywhere!! Give them a try!!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Bruce for over 20 years and he is absolutely the best dentist I’ve had. Dr Bruce and Leslie (hygienist) are consumate professionals with a gentle chairside manner. They’re always timely with getting patients in and out in a reasonable time. I can honestly say they make the dreaded task of going to the dentist a pleasure. Also, the office was just remodeled and it’s absolutely gorgeous! I highly recommend Dr. Bruce.

(…) I’m still very happy with Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. I feel like they’re taking excellent care of my teeth and making sure I’m comfortable and happy while they’re doing so. Update 11/30/17: I’ve continued seeing Dr. Bruce and Dr. Ojibway and am still very pleased with them and their team. My teeth continue to be healthy and my visits are always pleasant. I’ve just finished Invisalign with Dr. Ojibway and couldn’t be happier! They recently renovated their office and it looks modern and fresh. Original Review: I’ve been seeing Dr. Bruce and Dr. Ojibway for a short time but I’ve been very happy with my experience so far. Each time I have an appointment, I’m checked in and taken back to a chair within a minute or two. Both dentists and their team have been very kind and friendly. I don’t feel like they’re trying to upsell me or get me to do things that aren’t necessary.

Great first appointment! Friendly and courteous staff, beautiful office and decor, very up to date with technology, very thorough exam and cleaning, hygienist and dentist went over everything. It was a great overall first appointment. My first job ever as a young teen/adult was at a dental office and after trying many Atlanta dental offices I think I have finally found what I’ve been searching for since my move here several years ago 🙂

My only complaint is that I don’t get to go here more often! I love the staff, the office, and the service. They remember you and they remember your stories and your life and they take the time to talk to you. They have all new high-tech equipment and they always make me feel like I’m getting the best care. They are also very intelligent and really know what they’re doing here. There are a lot of things you never knew about dentistry and teeth! I highly recommend this dental office!

If you are having tooth issues? There is no better place to go than Dunwoody Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Ojibway And Dr. Bruce are both fantastic and the staff as a whole are amazing from the receptionist to the technicians and everyone in between! I can’t recommend them high enough…. a truly outstanding group of professionals!!!

Andreas L. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I was a new patient and called and got in the next day. Office was very new and clean. Met the Dr that owns the practice and really love her a lot. I believe it was my hygienists first day on the job and someone was showing him how to operate everything. I had quite a bit of pain from him when he was “measuring” my gums. I’ll give him one more shot before I request someone new if I get him again, but love my new dental spot! Hopefully this one doesn’t get militant with insurance like my last two dentists so I don’t have to switch again 🙁

I’ve visited Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry a few times recently (initial consultation, cleaning, Invisalign impressions, and Invisalign installation) and each time was excellent. I was greeted, signed-in quickly, and taken back for my appointment within a couple of minutes. Everyone I’ve interacted with has been incredibly kind and informative. I did not feel pressured into getting services or products outside of what I came to the visit for. I highly recommend this practice! I’ve seen both Dr. Bruce and Dr. Ojibway and both are awesome!

George S. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I had ro leave my dentist of almost 30 years and just lucked up on finding this practice in Dunwoody. The staff are very courteous and helpful, the hygienists are knowledgeable and excellent as well, and the Dental Services have been super professional and way less expensive than I was afraid.  My experience has been highly favorable and I would recommend this team to anybody looking for great modern dental practice

Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is truly a great place. I had my first visit today and it was definitely a great first impression. My hygienist was “little” Dianna (because there are two Dianna’s at the practice). She took great care of me and helped me feel very relaxed and comfortable the entire time by explaining everything to me in detail that she was going to do. I also saw Dr. Bruce who was just as amazing as Dianna. He was extremely thorough and both had such great personalities. I definitely will be going back. Such a great experience!

John Bruce, the dentist I saw, was warm, sympathetic and, above all, competent and knowledgeable. He immediately put me at ease and I left feeling that my concerns had been more than adequately addressed and resolved. I would most definitely recommend Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, especially Dr. Bruce.

I feel so welcome here, and the hygienists are incredibly sweet, knowledgeable and explanatory. Andrea was amazing and had me laughing and comfortable with my procedure and explained what she was doing throughout. I’ve never enjoyed going to a dentist, but really enjoyed my time here.

Finally found a dentist I can trust! I’ve tried three different dentists the past few years and didn’t like any of them — I hated that they were pushing tons of unnecessary procedures on me and were extremely fast paced. Dunwoody Family Dentistry is the opposite! Everyone there listens to me and genuinely wants to help me without just wanting me to spend tons of money. They take their time and answer every single one of my questions. I get super anxious going to the dentist but I really love it here. It’s super relaxing and every single person who works there is a pleasure to talk to. Highly recommend them!

The entire staff is very friendly. Lacy, my hygienist, is very informative and literally excited to know about my progress between services. It’s very nice to know that they are actually concerned about my dental health. The newly renovated office is beautiful and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Five stars for expediency and quality care. My daughter was going away for college. We were able to have a cleaning and four cavities filled within a week before she was scheduled to leave. I most definitely recommend Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic dentistry for all your dental needs.

Dr. Bruce has been my dentist for many years. He is a compassionate professional–always so concerned for my comfort and well-being. His staff is well trained and attentive. I highly recommend this office to anyone –for anything –from simple cleaning to complicated reconstructive procedures. They’re the best!

Marilyn Dame (Source: Facebook)


Very clean, expert dental care. All staff were friendly, all aspects of the procedure were fully explained first before being initiated. I am very happy I selected this practice and feel confident my dental care will be equal or better than from where I moved.

Hadley Brooke Schultz (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Bruce is amazing. I am so thankful for his loyalty to his career and his ability to make me feel like the best patient each and every visit. From my first (and only) filling when I was 6, to my braces when I was 10, to pulling out my wisdom teeth when I was 22, and all the cleanings in between, he has continued to be the absolute best. It’s a blessing to be a patient of his. His staff is ALWAYS so friendly and welcoming, too. I love that I have grown up with this Dentistry and everyone who is a part of it.

Dr. Bruce is great. He is so friendly. And honest. He is helpful and treats his patients and employees with respect. His front desk people got me in fairly quickly and gave him time to work on whatever was bothering me instead of making me come back. Thank you for being a wonderful demerits and dentist office
