"They did an awesome job removing my wisdom teeth."

Regarding Dr. MacNicol: "I have a very difficult dental issues, both physically & neurologically. I had recently gone through cellulitis in the face, 2 total erupted complicated extractions & another extraction requiring surgery. Very professional, felt completely confident and wow - I was not disappointed. The results were literally painless, no swelling or tearing and a relative easy recovery. I have no hesitation going back, should the need arise."

"Have had two implants, sinus lift surgery and three teeth pulled by Bruce MacNicoL (after years of grinding). He is professional, experienced, highly trained, and has a great sense of humor. His results are beautiful and I have recovered with no bruising, infection or other problems. If you want the best care and the best surgeon surgeon, he's the guy. I wouldn't have anyone else, ever."

""Discovering that my only option was implants I then looked for the best professional that I could find to do the job. Dr. MacNicol is with a group of Maxillofacial Surgeons and he did indeed live up to my expectations. When I first met with Dr. MacNicol he explained, after having X-rays taken of my mouth and jaw, that I did indeed have sufficient bone to have full implant surgery. He took time to answer all my questions and I went into the surgery fully understanding what would happen.

I was taken care of every step of the way. One has to realize that it is a slow process as the implants need time to fuse into your jaw bone. I was passed over to Dr. Zarb and he inserted interim plastic teeth for the short term. No one ever knows that they are not your own. We both laughed when Dr. MacNicol warned me that plastic teeth can crack if I was to bite on something very hard, just to be careful. When my permanent teeth were in place I can now bite whatever I wish.

Over this whole period I was always kept in the loop. Every question I had was answered by either Dr. McNicol or Dr. Zarb. Any concerns were addressed giving me a measure of comfort every step of the way. When you put yourself in the best hands you can be assured that you do, indeed get the best treatment." -J.M.

"I highly recommend Dr. MacNicol and his Staff for anyone considering Dental Surgery and Implants. They were professional, compassionate and sincere in all my dealings with them. I had implants two years ago and am completely satisfied with all aspects of my care including Dr. Zarb and his Staff. The two Doctors worked together to make my dental surgery as easy and comfortable for me as possible. "I can't stop smiling"." -E.C.

"Very good oral surgeon. I felt confident having him remove my wisdom teeth. He and his staff were very friendly and answered all of my questions and concerns."

"Had two molars pulled and one implant inserted. Other than the needles, hardly any pain and bleeding. Super job. This was my 4 or 5th visit for surgery, always a super job."

"I got 4 wisdom teeth pulled. My mouth was swollen for only the first day and I was able to eat a steak the next day! Excellent oral surgeon!"

"Our daughter was missing her lateral incisors , Dr Gater performed the wisdom teeth extraction, bone graphing and now the implants - he is super kind, made us all comfortable and knowledgeable with the procedures. His calm voice, carrying attitude directed to our daughter was exceptional! The phone calls at night to ensure she's doing well - amazing - that he cares so much for his patients to call himself. Thank you for making her smile even more beautiful! "

"Fantastic Oral Surgeon. My 10 year old daughter was the patient. He spoke directly to her and included her in the conversation regarding her treatment. He is kind and to the point. Makes things clear and ensures the patient and family members involved are very informed and understand the entire procedure. He is well worth driving 4 hours south! He is fantastic and I would strongly recommend anyone to him. Fantastic! "

"I had surgery on having a tooth extracted by Dr. Andrew Gater and his more than supportive staff. I appreciated all the kindness and attentiveness given; especially the follow up call by Dr. Gater. Today I have no swelling,no bruising, little pain, and overall very impressed. I think the "tooth fairy" must have been guiding Dr. Gater's hands during the extraction. It was that pain free and I came out of my anesthetic quickly and was up and around within arriving back from Barrie to my home here in Bracebridge, Ontario. I highly recommend Dr. Gater and the Huronia Oral Surgery Group; not just 5 out of 5, but 10's all around. Thank you again. "

"Best doctor I have ever had. Extremely knowledgeable and skilled surgeon. Also, he studied with the best. "

"By far an amazing dental surgeon. He just did my wisdom teeth in preparation for braces. He's extremely polite, and filled us in on everything we needed to know, and was really nice through both appointments. He's from my home town as well which is kind of ironic and comforting!"

"I had Dr. Jackson in November 2011 for jaw surgery. He is hands down one of the best oral surgeons. Excellent bedside manners and very professional. He even called me at my mothers house on a weekend to see how I was doing. I was referred to him by my orthodontist. Ironically he is from my hometown and his father taught me in high school. I recommend him to anyone. "

"Dr. Jackson was an absolutely amazing surgeon. I put a lot of trust in him with the surgery I went through, and years later I am beyond satisfied with how everything went. Thanks so much Dr. Jackson."

"I was at your location yesterday to have a tooth extracted by Dr. Bruce MacNicol and I would like him and the rest of his support staff to know that I couldn't have been happier with the results.

Based upon some rather poor experiences with dentists in my youth, I developed an abject fear of anything to do with dentistry, therefore I was not the most comfortable when I walked into your establishment yesterday. However, from the time I walked in I was treated with respect and courtesy and made to feel as comfortable as possible by all staff. Thanks for that!! I have to admit, that the procedure from start to finish was the most pain free visit that I've ever had and in fact even the period after the extraction was relatively pain free. Today, I have a little contact sensitivity in the area, but otherwise I have been pain free and certainly no discomfort even in any of the jaw muscles. Again, thanks so much. I certainly wish that I was treated so well and pain free when I was growing up.

I certainly would recommend your practice to all and sundry."
