Meet Dr. Bruce McFarlane
DMD BScD MClD FRCD(C)
Dr. McFarlane is an orthodontist at our Village Orthodontics Winnipeg practice.
The Village Orthodontics mandate that includes statements about kind, compassionate environments and fun, professionalism, and respect is right up Dr. Bruce McFarlane’s alley. He is very pleased to be part of the Village Orthodontics family.
He is incredibly passionate about orthodontics and always strives to go way beyond excellence in his clinical results. As important to him is the whole experience of caring and service in a respectful and fun atmosphere. He and his team aren’t just about the destination; they love the journey toward an amazing smile and bite. This is their daily mission.
Dr. McFarlane graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree and his Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 1984 from the University of Manitoba. He then practiced as a general dentist for six years in Brandon, Manitoba before returning to the University of Western Ontario where he graduated in 1992 as a Specialist in Orthodontics.
He then returned to Manitoba and established an orthodontic practice in the Medical Arts Building in Winnipeg, and a second office in Kenora, Ontario. In 2005, Dr. McFarlane built his present office on Taylor Avenue in Winnipeg, rebranding it as “Festival Orthodontics,” and then again in 2013 as a member of the Village Orthodontic Group.
Dr. McFarlane is well-known in Manitoba as one who “gives back” through involvement in various charities and philanthropic organizations. His philanthropy also crosses borders; he organizes a yearly “McFarlane Mission” to a third-world country to provide volunteer dental and medical services to those less fortunate. This has become a real passion, and he will continue with such missions and encourages others to do so as well; they are great perspective changers!
The other loves of Dr. McFarlane’s life are his three children: Sarah (who has three children of her own), Blair, and Michelle. He is extremely proud of them, and hopes to continue to inspire them to seek excellence in their own lives.
In his spare time, Dr. McFarlane enjoys physical activity (workouts and yoga), sushi (he even has his own roll - the “Dr. B Roll” at Wasabi Sabi in Winnipeg), and hockey (go Jets!).
Dr. McFarlane lives life with passion and drive, and encourages those around him to do the same. Along with his team of talented individuals at Village Orthodontics in Winnipeg, he loves what he does and it shows every day!
