This review is long overdue! Dr MacGinnis is honestly the best orthodontist EVER! I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr MacGinnis and his staff. They are amazing and super friendly. I had braces as a teenager with a different office and I can say this experience was 100 times better. I lost my retainers, my teeth shifted and I hated my smile. At 20 years old I decided to get back into braces, fast forward a couple years later and I LOVE my smile all over again!!! Dr MacGinnis went above and beyond! I can’t thank his office enough for giving me an amazing smile  I will definitely be bringing my son to Dr MacGinnis’s office when he is ready for ortho! Thank you again Dr MacGinnis and team!

We have been with Dr. MacGinnis for almost 2 years now. The staff is always extremely nice, office is always clean and bright, and Dr. MacGinnis always takes the time to talk about the treatment. I would recommend this office in a heart beat. Dr. MacGinnis has also donated toothbrushes for our “Blessing Bags” for the homeless and provided a fantastic basket with movie tickets, candy and a certificate for treatment for our schools auction event. This office cares about their patients not just their teeth. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

My 14y old son was recommended to Dr. MacGinnis by his dentist (Dr. Saunders). The office was extremely clean, and felt very calming with a spa-like feel. Important to calm the nerves… Dr. MacGinnis is extremely friendly and professional as is his entire staff. We were seen within a day of making our appointment and my son walked out of that same appointment with braces, an hour later. My son already feels more confident with his smile, knowing his teeth will be straight in a couple of years. Dr. MacGinnis made my son feel comfortable and at ease. Thank you, Dr. MacGinnis and staff for your friendly and professional service. We are so happy to have been referred to your office.

I don’t know where to start…Dr. Macginnis and his staff are fantastic!!  My son recently finished with his treatment with both an expander and braces.  Our previous dentist tried to treat  and fix his mouth which was a disaster.  I quickly realized that the treatment he recommended was not going to work.  I ended up switching to a different dentist, Dr. Thomas Tran.  Dr. Tran’s wife was in treatment with Macginnis Orthodontics.  I was looking for an ortho for my son and he recommended Dr. Macginnis.  We went for a consult with him and I knew this was the person I wanted to treat my son.  What an awesome person!  He knew exactly what to do for my son.  He started with an expander with implants and the device worked beautifully on my son’s mouth.  Within a few months, the expander was removed and the braces put on.  We went in every couple of months and I got to the point where I looked forward to taking my son to the ortho! The staff was incredible and Dr. Mac was so gentle and kind.  We would try to set up our appts for when Dominque was there so she could work on my son.  She was so sweet!  I never thought that the experience of getting braces would be so pleasant!  I am actually sad that the treatment has come to an end.  I miss not having to go in as often.  My son now has a retainer and will continue to be followed but less often.  I absolutely can’t say enough about Dr. Mac and his staff!  I wish I could give 100 stars.  He and his staff deserve it!  I am proud to say that Macginnis Orthodontics treated my son and his mouth is amazing!!.

I’ve Been taking my son for over a year for his braces. Appointments run on time. Staff is friendly and kind. I trust their recommendations are based on my child’s needs not their bottom line. I realized quickly in my research there is always someone cheaper. We decided that this is the beginning of a long relationship. 5-6 years between both kids of coordinating appoints with school and athletics, running late because Im sitting in traffic, needing last min appts because the wire is poking my child’s cheek. They accommodate all these matters, with understanding and a smile. They are top notch and I will always recommend them

Aubree T. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Definitely the place you want to take your children for all orthodontic needs! From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted with friendly smiles.  My children literally count down to their appointments. Words can not describe the love we have for Dr. MacGinnis. His knowledgable approach and experience are top notch. This practice goes above and beyond to make you feel like you are part of the family.  I am so thankful and want everyone to know how special and unique this practice is!!!

Sheree P. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Having braces as an adult has been amazing thanks to Dr. MacGinnis and his team. I am in the middle of treatment and have been so happy with my experience. Dr. MacGinnis has such a great way of connecting with his patients. I’ve been so impressed with the way he interacts with the younger kids that I’ve decided to have my son receive treatment from MacGinnis Orthodontics instead of another ortho that my daughter went to. This decision was based on my experience and the way his team made my son feel at his consultation. I wish we found him sooner for my daughter. I cannot express enough how wonderful Dr. Mac and his team are. If you’re looking for an orthodontist, look no further. You will not regret it. *Gorgeous Facility *Friendly Staff and GREAT Service *Dr. Mac and the assistants walk you through the process at each visit!

Our son has received the most amazing care at Moon and MacGinnis Orthodontics. I believe my son had somewhat of a special case with a huge underbite and overbite. We had met with an orthodontist who basically suggested that reconstructive jaw surgery was our only choice, (I didn’t feel good about that at all) so our dentist referred us to Dr. MacGinnis. We are so grateful for Dr. MacGinnis and the care my son has received!! We avoided any surgery and carefully went through the process that was planned by Dr. MacGinnis. The process was amazing and Dr. MacGinnis is so kind, my son always felt comfortable and enjoyed chatting about sports with him. The office is clean and beautiful, the staff is friendly and welcoming. They were great with fitting in “urgent” appointments and appointment changes. My son was notified at his appointment last week that his braces will come off in two weeks… he is so excited! We can hardly wait! We are so thankful for you Dr. MacGinnis!

I love this place! As soon as I walked in, the wonderful ladies in the front reception area made the place very welcoming. I knew the moment I walked into that office I would be getting my braces there. All the staff are so sweet, and always showing friendliness. MacGinnis Orthodontics goes above and beyond for their patients. Loving the patient rewards. I couldn’t have made a better choice, than choosing this place for my braces. Great quality service, definitely worth every dollar spent here. Thank You all!

Tamara T. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been with MacGinnis Orthodontics for a year now and I can not believe how much my teeth have changed since I started! I still have a year to go, but honestly my smile has improved drastically since day 1 and I’m wondering what another year will bring since it’s pretty stellar already. Aside from creating beautiful smiles, it’s the customer service experience that sets MacGinnis Orthodontics apart from the rest. The facility looks like it was designed on one of those HGTV shows, the staff are all friendly, beautiful, fun, welcoming and family oriented. I love that they’re involved with the community, always posting on their social media page (I follow them on Instagram) as well as encouraging patient participation through their rewards programs. I remember my first visit for my consultation and seeing my  name written on the welcome board and thinking how nice it was of them to recognize me even before I committed to anything! I literally spend no more than 20 – 30 minutes each visit, but it’s always a pleasant experience and I leave happier than when I came in. I came to MacGinnis looking to just get rid of my overbite and he was recommended by my dentist. When my friend from work told me she was getting braces and went with MacGinnis Ortho, I was pretty much sold and went along with her. I was given the option of wire or invisalign and even though invisalign costs more, I was told if I got wire it would be the same duration more or less. I went with invisalign and it’s been great and I’ve noticed a HUGE difference in my smile after just about a month and a half of wearing the trays. I definitely recommend MacGinnis to anyone looking for an orthodontist.They’re also open on some of those holidays that fall on a Monday  which is convenient since I don’t lose time at work.

Audrey S. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely wonderful and professional service. Dr. MacGinnis is kind, calm, and thorough. My seven-year-old was recommended by our pediatric dentist, Dr. Butler, to go for an evaluation. They did a wonderful job explaining to me the entire process with pictures and an evaluation. I felt completely at ease. I was so afraid because she is so young that she would be panicked and tearful. We have not had that experience at all. The office staff and Dr. MacGinnis are really great with kids. They have a program with a T-shirt and a Spinny wheel where kids to get to earn prizes. It makes our visits fun for my daughter. She is happy to go each time AND the results from treatment are a prize for me! I highly recommend them.

Jd M. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Macginnis and his staff are incredible. I had discomfort in my jaw area because I was having issues with my bite. My dentist referred me to Dr Macginnis to have my bite evaluated and treated accordingly. His honesty and passion were apparent. My treatment plan was simple. He explained everything really well, and I went ahead to get clear braces. My teeth are now looking fantastic. I am so happy with the result so far and I have only had my braces on for about 1 year. I have clear braces and love that they aren’t that noticeable. I highly recommend him! Thanks again, for helping me to get rid of my pain, and giving me a great smile!!

Sandra M. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience as a child with braces was SO different from my experience here at Moon & MacGinnis Orthodontics. In a positive way! As a child, my orthodontist removed numerous teeth which caused my smile to be narrow. Years later, my teeth started to crowd up because I stopped wearing my retainers. I’ve always wanted a wider and straighter smile, so I finally did something about it. I looked around at a few orthodontist offices and found that Dr. MacGinnis made me feel very comfortable and confident in his expertise. He explained how he could make my smile wider and more attractive. He walked me through all of my options, regular braces, clear braces and invisalign. We ended up choosing clear braces and I am so happy that I did. I just got my braces off last month and I’m thrilled with the results. I only wish I did it sooner. On a side note, the office is amazing and the staff was friendly and professional.

Quyen T. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. MacGinnis and his staff are accommodating, compassionate, and competent. We chose Dr. MacGinnis after our oldest daughter had endured impersonal, generic treatment from another local orthodontist. This office is extraordinary, the moment patients arrive they are warmly greeted. All of Dr. Mac’s assistants skillfully perform their duties while cheerfully interacting with individual patients. Dr. MacGinnis is extremely supportive of local community activities.  All of our children look forward to their visits to Dr. MacGinnis’ office because there’s always something exciting for them to take part in such as guessing how many items are in a jar to win a prize.  Also be sure to always wear your complimentary MacGinnis orthodontics to your office visit for extra “points” toward available prizes.
If you are in need of top-notch orthodontic care, be sure to call MacGinnis Orthodontics first, they are the best!

Angelica G. from Wappingers Falls, NY (Source: Yelp)


Where do I begin!? From the moment that I walked into this office, I felt very comfortable and secure in knowing that my treatment was going to be both affordable and professional. Many times when you look for an office, they are either outdated, expensive or not personable. This office is truly one of a kind! Dr. MacGinnis was always willing to ask me about my day, take time to remember the information I gave him, and continue the conversation the following time I came in. As an adult, I was nervous to have braces and how I would luck with them, but after the way my teeth came out, I would gladly do this process all over again at this office. This office truly makes you feel like a family, and I’ll be so sad to leave! I want to thank the team and Dr. MacGinnis for all the love, support, understanding, empathy and compassion that they gave me during my two years of treatment. I wish this facility, the providers, and all the patients more growth and personal achievements for the years to come.

Nathan C. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. MacGinnis in search of an orthodontist that I could trust in my journey to fix my under bite and crooked jaw. My initial impression of him and his staff was that they were very friendly and caring. I was impressed by his knowledge and the advanced technology he used. His recommendation for a jaw surgeon was also top quality. Throughout my braces treatment of 2 years pre and post jaw surgery, Dr. MacGinnis and his staff have been nothing but caring, professional, and knowledgeable. He prepared my teeth perfectly for surgery and also made sure it stayed that way after. I truly appreciate everything has done for my teeth and smil.

Kelsey E. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I got my braces off 4 years ago, but I still want to write about my experience! I was nervous to get my braces for the first time at 21-years-old, but Dr. MacGinnis and the rest of the staff made the experience incredibly comfortable and easy. Dr. MacGinnis went out of his way for my needs numerous times throughout my experience there. Once was when I was getting some work done that ended up being really painful (not his fault at all). He called me personally the next day to follow up with me and make sure I was doing alright! The second time was when I had a last minute international flight to make and needed something done for my braces. He opened the clinic at like 8am on a Saturday morning, just for me to pop in and out. Most importantly, Dr. MacGinnis did some sort of orthodontic magic and managed to get my braces on and off and my retainer made by the time I moved across the country for graduate school. The staff was always incredibly friendly as well. I felt like I was really taken care of by everybody there. Appointments were always on time and they really did their best to be flexible with me.

What a beautiful, comfy, high-tech, and impressive place to obtain braces. My daughter started her braces treatment on Friday (4-19-19) and I recently completed my Invisalign regimen a few months ago. I love my results and I am very pleased. I had a concern a few months ago and Dr McGinnis addressed my concerns immediately and made sure that I was content and satisfied. Great and friendly staff that always greets you with a smile. I had the opportunity to meet his parents who are also wonderful and kind. So if you’re looking to improve your smile, look no further. This a great place to go.

Well words are less to describe for Dr.Macginnis, as family oriented and genuine as they come. Dr.Macginnis makes things smooth and painless. Unfortunately through the mask you can’t see the smile of Dr.Macginnis but no matter how fussy you can get with irritating pain that you have, he will still make sure your comfortable by having you in a stress free environment with a great staff and great satisfaction, customer Service and follow up has never been better. As they say in the business the customers always comes first. At MacGinnis orthodontist they make sure they take care of everyone with high priority and take care of everyone with gentle care and advice you best for the future of your health. Thank you for being patient and being there as a Amazing orthodontist during these though times we are lucky have you. Be safe everyone and wish you all the best.

Nelson A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. MacGinnis and his staff were incredibly friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable which is why I chose them to begin Invisalign treatment.  As an adult, I was a bit nervous when considering orthodontic treatment, but after speaking with Dr. MacGinnis about a treatment plan and reviewing his credentials and successful history of treating patients, I was convinced.  I’m one month into my treatment, and I have been impressed with the communication and availability of Dr. MacGinnis and his staff. Their location is spotless and spacious.  I’m always greeted with a smile and I never have to wait long when I arrive which is very important for me due to my work and family schedule.  I look forward to my continued visits and I’m extremely grateful that Dr. MacGinnis will be able to provide the smile I’ve always wanted!

Jennifer P. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


We’ve been with Dr. MacGinnis for almost two years.  His staff has always been super nice and the office is always bright and clean.  Dr. Mac takes the time to talk through the treatment with his patients (and their parents) and makes you feel like you are important.  Thanks for a great experience with braces.  I would recommend Dr. MacGinnis in a heartbeat to family and friends. Dr. MacGinnis has also supported our community efforts by providing toothbrushes for “blessing bags” and an awesome basket for our schools auction. Stop looking and go see Dr. MacGinnis today!

Pat McKibben (Source: Facebook)


This is my second go around with braces and I’m so glad that I found Dr. Mac. It’s such a pleasure to go there for my monthly appointments. The staff is very professional and friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are treated with respect and that you are comfortable. I’m almost through with my treatment and I highly recommend them for all your orthodontic needs. I couldn’t have found a better group of people to help me. Also a big shout out to Dr. Mac and Danielle. You rock!

We are new to Moon and MacGinnis Orthodontics and we are happy to have found this office. I wasn’t sure my daughter was ready for orthodontic treatment yet because she still has so many baby teeth but we were referred to get a consultation here. I’m grateful we did because we are able to start treatments now, before all of her permanent teeth come in and are more difficult to move. The office is clean, spacious, and appealing. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and caring. My daughter feels comfortable and is excited about the Rewards Program. I appreciate the in-house financing options and I did not feel pressured in any way. I trust Dr. MacGinnis and believe he created the best possible treatment plan for my daughter. I feel confident that we can get a head-start on my youngest daughter’s treatment as early as possible to prevent some issues before they even happen. We are having a great experience and I highly recommend this office for those seeking orthodontic treatment.

Samantha G. from Placentia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today is the day we end a 7-year journey for my daughter. She began her journey with one doctor and ends it today with Dr. Mac. It took a lot for our family to make the decision to be taken care of by Dr. Mac since I worked in the dental field and also had the opportunity to receive dental care for free. The doctor: We came to Dr. Mac with an almost impossible success story. The previous doctor had miscalculated how fast my daughter’s teeth would move and when we met Dr. Mac she had one adult tooth that was barely hanging on. Dr. Mac and his great staff made us feel like we were going to be taken care to their best ability. (I’ve seen a lot of dentists since I worked in the dental field-from general dentistry to implant surgeons). Dr. Mac is one-of-kind! He’s calm, gentle and actually listens to the patient’s concerns. He would take time to point out the tooth and would inform us whenever there were any changes. The staff: What an amazing staff! Every time we stepped into the office, the staff were always smiling. Every one of them smile when answering questions, checking in patients or giving out appointments. The facility: As a person that’s seen great practices to really horrible practices, this dentistry tops the charts! The open chairs make you feel like they’re not hiding anything but the consulting rooms give you privacy. They always have on a family-friendly movie for you as well. The walls are filled with different areas for the patient’s to feel proud about coming to the orthodontist. They have the wall of fame where patients sign their name after their procedure is complete-we so wanted to be a part of that wall! Kids can spin a wheel to gain prizes. The whole dentistry is set for success-a friendly atmosphere that isn’t cluttered with the dentist’s plaques. The journey: Dr. Mac and his staff have impressed our family in so many ways. I waited four years to write a review since I wanted to make sure our journey was a success. It’s been such a success that our second daughter began treatment with him last year as well. It’s also a pleasure to see Dr. Mac’s family around Fullerton’s different fundraisers for schools within the community. The dentistry’s tireless efforts to make their practice the best shows in so many different ways. Thank you to Dr. Mac and his great staff for truly making one girl’s smile even better.

Smile brought to you by @mmbraces . —Yes, I am wearing my retainers . Honestly, it was such a great investment. Sometimes we focus on other things, and overlook the importance of dental care. I always wanted braces growing up, and when the opportunity came by, I jumped on it and got it done. Yes, it was always a 40 minute from home, but it was always worth the drive. I & my siblings chose this team because they treat you like family, every single visit I was treated with care. Although I only needed 18 months of treatment, they dealt with me for 36 months. I’m sorry . Thank you so much Dr. MacGinnis & all staff.  I am so happy with my brand new smile. #bracesfree
I definitely recommend this.

Kathy T. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was an adult patient of Dr. MacGinnis and can speak from personal experience. If you’re looking for a REAL orthodontist, you came to the right place! The facility has up-to date equipment that comes with a free honest consultation. I was always greeted warmly by the staff. I liked how you signed in on the computer, proceeded to the brushing station, then ready to be seen. I always felt confident I was getting the best care from Dr. MacGinnis and his staff.

Doug F. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


I needed some major work done to my teeth. It became almost a 4 year process. I had a very unique situation. I would grind my teeth in my sleep and was never taken to the dentist as a child. My front teeth were in perfect edge to edge contact with each other. This cause me to grind them down to half the size of normal teeth. Due to this unique situation of my age and how my mouth needed to be adjusted, my dentist suggested we go to MacGinnis Orthodontics. From the get go, they were amazing!! Dr. MacGinnis was awesome!!! He always answered all my questions and was incredibly flexible. I never had any doubt that he was doing what was needed for me. He would even talk with my dentist on a regular basis and keep him updated so that my adjustments would be exactly what they needed to be. It was a great experience from begging to end. Could not say more. I would recommend Dr. Macginnis to anyone and everyone. I would also like to give credit to Dr. Keith Cowhey. He is the one who did the final crowns.

Karin B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today is truly bittersweet as the orthodontic chapter closes for our family. Both my daughter and son had the privilege of receiving care from one of the kindest, most genuine, and patient humans to exist. Dr. Mac is one of a kind. He goes out of his way to provide excellent care and treatment. Busy as the practice may be, he takes the time to shoot a smile and makes you feel like family. One particular thing I’d like to mention was when my son got elbowed in the face while playing basketball. In short, 4 of his teeth were dislocated. Appears the braces “saved” his teeth. But beyond that, Dr. Mac took time out of his busy schedule on a weekend, during OFF hours to care for my son. This is a simple example of Dr. Mac going over and beyond! Hopefully you won’t have too many emergency cases like this Dr. Mac! Thank you and your staff so much for your commitment and kindness.

My son and I really love this orthodontist. Everyone in the office is kind and friendly. Prior to coming here we went to a couple other orthodontist to see if they would be a good fit….they were not very kid friendly. Once we came to Moon and MacGinnis we knew that this was the place for us. They really get the kids excited about their visits. They have a great inventive program. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking into getting orthodontic care. The best around.

Theresa Galle (Source: Google)


Dr. MacGinnis was recommended to me by my friend and I couldn’t be happier. He is always very friendly as well as his staff. He takes his time to explain things, and I never feel like he is rushing through the appointment so he can see his next patient. I would absolutely highly recommend MacGinnis Orthodontics. They truly care and are passionate about ensuring that all of their patients receive the best possible care.

T S. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a mom, choosing an orthodontist is one of the biggest decisions I will make for my children. So I took this search very seriously. I dragged my child to consultations at multiple Ortho offices. After coming to Moon and MacGinnis Orthodontics, I wish I would have started there and looked no further. To say that I love this place is an understatement. Dr. MacGinnis was extremely thorough, kind, and friendly at the initial consult. My child immediately felt comfortable and wanted to start treatment here. We ended up getting started the same day because we were so wowed by them. They even gave her a cute T-shirt and little goody bag. We’ve been going there for a few months now and they have yet to disappoint. The staff is friendly and efficient. I’m so happy we chose Moon and MacGinnis Orthodontics. Check them out!

Kathy T. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


At 57 years old, I never thought I would have braces. But here I am…in braces.  My bite had caused me problems for many years and I finally decided to do something about it. After a thorough consultation with Dr. MacGinnis & Dr. Moon, I felt very comfortable and confident with their treatment recommendations. They were honest and spoke in terms I understood. Eight months later, I’m very happy with my decision to get braces. My bite has dramatically improved and I’m close to having the smile I always wanted. Scheduling an appointment was convenient. They had appointments at all times of day, including weekends so I always had options. The staff was friendly and remembered me by name. The office was beautiful and comfortable. Moon and MacGinnis Ortho is very ADULT-FRIENDLY.

Jasmine O. from Hawaiian Gardens, CA (Source: Yelp)


I never really take the time to write reviews on anything (mostly because I’m so lazy haha) but I had to write one for Dr MacGinnis and give him the five ++ stars he and his staff really deserve. When I came to see Dr MacGinnis for the first time, it was my second time getting braces because the first doctor I went to didn’t correctly fix my overbite.  My case wasn’t severe but severe enough to get treated, and Dr Macginnis made it happen. The moment I walked into the office, I instantly felt the warmth and welcome that I certainly knew I was in good hands. Not only is Dr MacGinnis a sole expert in this field, but the entire staff at the office is also so knowledgeable and always thoroughly walks you through each step so you, as a patient, know what’s going on. And most importantly, this place really goes above and beyond by adding another layer and depth to their expertise with an incredibly warm and big heart. everyone in the office is SO incredibly kind and truly cares about every one of your concerns. They make this sometimes uncomfortable and awkward process (I know having braces isn’t the easiest, trust me I had to brace it through college haha) as comfortable and fun and easy as they can make it. They really become your family throughout your orthodontic journey. Thank you Dr MacGinnis for being so kind, so smart, and so patient with me. You really change lives for the better; you certainly changed mine. Thank you for giving me the confident and beautiful smile I’ve always envied in others. P.s. Dr MacGinnis is also probably one of the best looking orthodontist (or just man) I’ve seen. I used to be so shy just to open my mouth in front of him because he’s so handsome hahaha. If there really is the smartest, kindest, hottest, and most caring orthodontist,  it has to be Dr MacGinnis. I couldn’t recommend him enough.

Faith M. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was looking for an orthodontist that does Invisalign and found Moon and MacGinnis through yelp. After reading mostly positive reviews I decided to get a free consultation. Upon arrival, I was thoroughly impressed with their office! I met Dr. MacGinnis, who was instantly friendly along with the rest of the staff. Sadly, I found out that my dental insurance at the time didn’t cover orthodontics, but I told them I would make it a point during open enrollment to change my dental and they promised to follow up. A few months later they actually followed through with their promise and called me. I made my first appointment and the rest is history! Oh! Did I mention they play elevator music when they take your X-rays with a machine that circles your entire head?! During my second appointment, I found out the whole staff was going on a vegas vacation together and today, we had a patient appreciation day where they rented out 3 theaters at AMC fullerton (which are super nice since the renovation) and we got to bring our whole family and a friend to watch “The Good Dinosaur.” Donuts, popcorn, coffee, milk, juice water and prizes were provided!!! REALLY!!! I have never seen a business that genuinely take care of their employees and patients! Thanks Dr. MacGuinnis for these past 6 months! I’m sad to see my treatment coming to an end but so thankful I found you guys 🙂 You can bet that when my kids are old enough to get braces I’ll be going here and I have and will be recommending this place to everyone I know.

Charlie H. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was initially referred to Dr. Mac by my periodontist and honestly I dreaded the idea of braces as an adult. But during the consult they were very upfront and gave me the full breakdown of how much, how long, what to expect. I went ahead and committed to the two years and as terrible as having braces was, I will say it was worth it. They fixed my snuggle tooth, my over bite, and gave me a rocking smile. Best of all was the initial time estimate was really close if it wasn’t for the pandemic throwing a wrench into the schedule. All in all Dr. Mac and the staff are all wonderful and pleasant to work with and always always accommodating. Can’t recommend a better ortho for your braces.
