I can’t even accurately express the gratitude I have! I am completely blown away and I’m so thankful I found Farina Orthodontics! My treatment was primarily with Dr. Rudy, but both Dr. Rudy and Dr. Farina are just amazing with their work! Dr. Rudy is the most compassionate, educated, and meticulous orthodontist EVER! All of their office staff are extremely friendly and I never had a single problem scheduling appointments at all three of their locations. I couldn’t be ANY happier with the results of my treatment here. I will recommend Farina Orthodontics to everyone I know. Thank you so much for everything!!!

This was the best ortho visit Ive had everyone was so attentive and made sure they explained everything to me Dr.Farina sat down and recommended everything I needed for Invisalign I will be back

Mary B. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Farina and his whole staff for any orthodontic work you may need. He treats both young and adult with so much respect and expertise. I not only needed my teeth straightened but my jaw aligned. He oh so carefully got the results that I never dreamed could happen without surgery. I cannot say enough positive things about how his office runs so efficiently and graciously. I always looked forward to my visits and was never kept waiting nor kept long. I am so happy with with my smile. I only regret I didn’t come sooner!

Dr. Farina and his staff are terrific!! I never have to wait very long for office visits and all of the staff are very courteous and helpful. They are knowledgeable and are always able to answer my questions. Dr. Farina is so nice and he’s always really helpful and makes sure that my treatment is on track. I am very thankful to have found this office!

Antwan T. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


When I was on the search for orthodontic treatment I was shy and a little embarrassed because my smile made me feel so insecure. I searched and searched and didn’t find any office that made me feel as comfortable, confident and welcome as the Farina orthodontics team. I am so happy that Dr. Farina and his team have made me feel like a star when I smile. The invisalign was a great suggestion, and so perfect for me. Today I am halfway through my treatment, and it is truly a blessing to be welcomed into this office and be treated so well every time. I suggest speaking with this orthodontics team if you are in search of a beautiful smile.

A great staff and a great atmosphere! Is it unusual to say we ‘had a great time’ at an orthodontist? lol … Seriously…We were not going to ‘decide’ which orthodontist yesterday, but with all of the newest technology, and the caring doctor and staff, we made the decision in a heartbeat. Thanks, and looking forward to a great relationship.

We had the initial consolidation, they had all the information that I filled out prior to arrival on line I didn’t have anymore paperwork to fill out on arrival , they already got all information from my sons dentist , My son was called right in. Pictures were taken,the dentist did the survey, we were given the options,and the braces were applied that day..i could not believe how great it was. They have their stuff together and the staff are so nice and happy, just a pleasure to be around

Hands down the most lovely office, staff, and Doctor. The whole operation is aesthetically pleasing and super inviting. I would recommend anyone to see Dr. Farina, his kind personality and warm nature sets you at ease. It also really helps that he has the highest tech available to treat your individual needs.

Andrea S. from Land O' Lakes, FL (Source: Yelp)


I have had excellent results with Dr. Farina’s help. My TMJ had been causing severe neck and jaw pain. Now, I’m pain free. In addition, his follow up appointments have been supportive and he runs on time! I referred my neice to him and he was honest and thorough — bottom line, he told her she didn’t need braces except cosmetically speaking. He did her xrays and consult complimentary. He’s extremely gracious, ALWAYS!

Brian S. from Wesley Chapel, FL (Source: Yelp)


Being an adult and finally dealing with dental issues is not something anyone relishes; however, reaching out to Dr. Farina’s office put all of my worries to rest.  They have been courteous, understanding and pleasant to work with.  I couldn’t have chosen a better Orthodontist to put the health of my teeth in.  Love, love, love them!

Dr. Mark Farina is great with my teenager! He is always positive and gives him good feedback on what he is doing right and what he needs to continually do. We are one year post braces and my son’s teeth look great and he understands the importance of maintenance and upkeep after the braces. Keep up the great work.

Haviland K. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Farina and his staff are excellent. He was able to correct my teeth with Invisalign, where many others did not think it was possible even with conventional braces. He is so friendly and positive and the staff is always accommodating and helpful. I tell all of my friends about him. He really is the best there is in Tampa Bay. I love my smile now!

Diane N. from Sunnyvale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t thank Dr. Farina and his warm and loving staff enough. I moved to Florida from California wearing metal braces for only a few months and needed an ortho that could finish my treatment because my teeth were stubborn and not shifting correctly after invisalign (also) failed .. and after getting a consultation with Dr. Farina I knew he would straighten my teeth to the way I imagined my smile would be. His initial exam was thorough and he figured out my jaw alignment issues and also accommodated my teeth pickiness – I was particularly bothered about some teeth. Being a transfer patient wasn’t stressful at all and the progress he made with my teeth was phenomenal. He’s an extremely friendly and eccentric doctor and going to his office was always a pleasure. Not only did my braces come off within the time frame he had predicted, he also shaped my teeth and polished it to my liking which i’m extremely happy with. If I could give his business more stars, I definitely would. Thank you!

Dr. Farina, his staff at the South Tampa office, and the rewards/points program for patients are awesome!  We had a wonderful experience there with my daughter (for braces), and soon, my son and I will also be patients.  They made the process easy and exciting.

I recommend Farina orthodontic, they are honest , friendly and professional. They make you feel at ease and they are alway happy to answer any questions you might have. Make the call. Call farina ,awesome way to start 2021.

Hands down the best Orthodontist in Tampa Bay! My daughter was incredibly nervous and scared about getting braces. From the moment we walked through the doors, the staff was warm and welcoming. They treated us like family and gave my daughter such a wonderful experience. We are looking forward to being a part of their dental family over the next few years!

I love this office. My daughter started seeing, Dr. Farina about 4 years ago and my son is now seeing, Dr. Rudy. The office has always been very professional and respectful. I have never encountered any problems with the office. Everyone is always smiling and ready to assist. Keep up the great work. Thank you, to all the staff and MD’s. This office is the reason why we continue to be patients.

So far my experience has been great. I was very confident and happy in my decision choosing Farina Orthodontics for my Invisalign treatment. Everyone has been very helpful and has answered my questions which made me feel comfortable in this entire process. Getting started was quick and easy and I was comfortable with the price. Further appointments are easy to schedule and are quick.

Sarah S. from Riverview, FL (Source: Yelp)


I feel very fortunate and grateful to have found Farina Orthodontics.  I have needed to see an orthodontist for a very long time but fear and anticipation of the unknown has kept me away.  Every visit to Farina so far has been awesome as the staff are so amazing, courteous, patient in explaining the process and provide exceptional service in attending to patients. Both Dr. Farina and Dr. Rudy are thorough in their dental treatment plan and in explaining every step of the process and answering my questions. Their patience and thorough explanations as well as everyone’s courteousness have helped me get past the anticipation of the unknown and continue to seek dental treatment.  I also want to commend Melody for her knowledge, compassion, helpfulness and follow through on cost and payment options.  She has been instrumental in making my seeking orthodontic treatment a reality and I really appreciate her and the entire practice.  I would wholeheartedly recommend this practice to all of my family, friends and anyone needing a superb orthodontist.

Courtney G. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


We have been very happy with Dr. Farina and all the nurses and staff. Everyone is very polite and they are prompt with appointment times! Having two other kids with me in the waiting room, they are always nice to offer us water and occasionally toys to the kids to occupy them! So happy we’ve got Farina Orthodontics close by!

Highly recommended after just finishing my Invisalign treatment. Absolutely love the results. Only negative thing to say is I wish I did this sooner or at a younger age. The staff is absolutely great and friendly. Always willing to work with your schedule and it helps that they have 3 different locations. Dr. Mark and Rudy are absolutely phenomenal not only at their work but also listening to your concerns. Explaining things throughout the process and giving you realistic expectation. Truly worth the time and money. Only wish they had a dentist office I could regularly go to.

We visited Farina for just a consult and to get a cost idea but we were so impressed with the practice and all the good things we heard we started my daughter’s treatment plan right away. Every staff member we dealt with was kind and attentive. The office has a great system in getting all types of patients in and out efficiently.

We’ve been seeing Dr. Farina for approx. 9 years! From pre-braces to finished treatment for our oldest daughter to continued treatment for our youngest, we have been well taken care of the entire time. Not only is Dr. Farina a GENIUS, he is warm, friendly and in-tune with kids (and Dr. Rudy seems to be following in his steps)! The staff is equally efficient, friendly and personable. They recognize us as we walk in, greet us by name and have us checked in before we sit down in the waiting room. Though the practice always seems busy, we never wait long and never feel rushed. The summer “parties” they’ve thrown and the rewards programs they have in place for the kids are special touches that add just that something extra you don’t find elsewhere. They are a classy, well-organized and professional practice, with people from the top down doing their jobs very well. Our oldest daughter has the most beautiful teeth we have ever seen! We won’t know how to live “Farina-less” when our youngest daughter is finished with her treatment. My husband and I may just have to become patients ourselves:)

Melissa B. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


My daughter has been going to Dr. Farina for quite a while. We are always greeted with a smile. The staff there is amazing they make my child feel right at home. She loves going and wearing her Farina shirt, I think she actually looks forward to her apointments. Dr. Farina always has a kind word, is so easy to talk to and my kids think he’s awesome. I would recomend Dr. Farina to anyone. He is the best at what he does and it is such a pleasant experience in his office.

Kristy H. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


We absolutely love Dr. Farina and his staff and fully recommend them. Our quality of care from start to finish was 10 stars!!! They were always on time, professional and friendly. We truly cannot say enough great things about Dr. Farina and his staff and the amazing service that was provided…not to mention our son’s beautiful smile! Thank you, Dr. Farina!!

Melissa B. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Farina’s office is amazing. My child was terrified of getting braces. In fact she had a complete melt down in the office at her first appointment. I have never seen such a patient and caring staff. I was mortified by my child’s behavior but Dr. Farina and the staff was calm and reassuring. My child’s second appointment and all there after have been a breeze. She trusts them and knows that it is a safe and comfortable environment. Dr. Farina has a fun and calming way about him that he has spread throughout the office. I would highly recommend the office of Dr. Farina Orthodontics and am so grateful a friend of mine recommended him to me. “

Melody P. from Tampa, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr Farina and his staff were so welcoming on our first visit. I was impressed with how detailed they were with giving me information about treatment, cost, expectations, etc for our son without making it overwhelming. My son was excited about their reward plan and is actually looking forward to going back to get his braces on. If this was a sign of things to come, we’re ready. Thank you Farina Orthodontics!

I couldn’t be happier with my visit to Dr. Farina’s office. The process of setting my appointment, being in the office (my consultation), and the follow up were all at the highest level, not to mention the awesome facility is the Wesley chapel area! Everyone I spoke with was very sweet and helpful throughout the entire process! Thank you Dr. Farina!!!

As ALWAYS the service is as good as it gets! Sofia recently required braces per Dr. Farina AND had oral surgery performed by Dr. Andres Guerra; he did a terrific job! He is highly qualified, professional, accommodating, courteous, pleasant and smiling at every opportunity. Dr. Guerra answered ALL questions in concise, clear and understandable terms; he did not rush through answers or limit questions; a GREAT addition to the already SUPERIOR Farina Orthodontics practice! I HIGHLY recommend Farina Orthodontics to anyone who is interested in EXCEPTIONAL Orthodontics and a staff that is equally as high-caliber!!!

Feb 2017: I started treatment with Dr. Rudy and I am beyond impressed. I am so excited to begin this journey with the greatest doctor I have ever met. I have had braces in the past, but I am sure that this is the office where my teeth will truly be fixed for a lifetime. I am so grateful to know that someone who is passionate and truly cares about the quality and effectiveness of a treatment plan is taking care of me.

Absolutely love the office staff, Dr. Farina and Dr. Rudy. First visit back since reopening and they have truly take every measure to make sure everyone feels safe and comfortable in the environment. We’ve been coming here for years and will continue to do so. Thank you Farina Orthodontic.

The whole team is fantastic! You guys are very flexible with appts, trying to accommodate scheduling for all 4 of my kids in order to maximize our time in the office. The girls up front are so helpful with billing, and always very patient. All of the clinical staff are knowledgeable and friendly, minimizing situations that could be anxiety provoking for the kids.We have recommended many people to the office to see both Dr. Farina and Dr. Rudy. We are so pleased to work with such a great group of people!

I got my 2nd phase braces put on the other day.  I couldn’t wait to get braces again.  I am taking good care of them & brushing after I eat.  Dr. Farina only put them on my top teeth this time to make room for my eye teeth to come in, but in 2 months I get the bottoms too. Dr Farina is the best!
