TMJ Treatment for Jaw Pain | Dunwoody, GA (2023)

James Wynne

Leslie does a terrific job cleaning your teeth, very thorough. I have been going to her at least the past 15 years. Dr. John Bruce is a wonderful Dentist. I have been seeing him for at least 20 years. I will go to no one else.

Emily Hanniger

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!

Charles Finlayson

Dr Bruce has been my dentist for over 10 years.He always answers my questions and gives me my options. Leslie is my favorite Hygenist. She has also been there for over 10 years and knows how to clean my overly sensitive teeth. Office has been completely redecorated and is very warm and inviting.

Debra Ray- Bond

Great service. My teeth look fantastic. Love this Dentist. Highly recommend her.

Marcus Bell

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.

June Miller

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!!

Traci Yoshimura

GO TO THIS PRACTICE. I have received service that goes beyond my expectations. In the medical/dental world it can be so challenging to find a practice/provider who truly takes their time with you, remembers who you are, knows what they’re doing and what they’re talking about, and is a lot of fun to see. They really make you feel like part of their family. I went three years without going to a dentist and these guys are putting me back together. My dental health is better than it’s ever been because of my hygienist’s instructions. I always see Dr. Thornton and she’s so personable and knowledgeable. I saw Dr. Ojibway this most recent visit and she’s absolutely brilliant as well. Even the front desk ladies are warm and welcoming and on top of things. I’ve since moved out of the area but have absolutely no problem driving 45 minutes away to continue treatment here!


I love everything about them !!! You will be the happiest person on earth if you come here.

Jerome Webb

The people that I interact with as a long standing patient of Dr. John Bruce are gregarious and manifest superb customer service skills. Dr. Bruce is a consummate professional, who is adroit and perspicacious. He has an immaculate sense of humor.Jerome Webb

Michelle Pethley

Dr. Bruce and the entire staff at Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry are incredible. They explain the procedure they will perform, answer every question you may have and really take the time to address your concerns. I would recommend Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to everyone.

Glenda Stevenson

Nice office friendly what I liked most was that the doctor was very thorough

Markell Staton

As soon as I walked in the receptionist knew my name and had everything ready for me. I waited less then five minutes to go the back. Once I got to the back, I even got a blanket ! The cleaning was great ! Less painful then I thought . The staff was amazing!!

Katherine Gaskins

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.

Janice Overbeck

Angela is an incredible dentist and is on top of all of the latest and best technology. She is very honest and I love everyone at her practice. They are all great!

I have been seeing Leslie and Dr. Bruce for about 20 years! Love their personalities and service. I highly recommend them!

Triana Beasley

I’ve been with them for 10 years.... the staff is excellent and the services provided are as well! They talk to you throughout procedures and ensure that you know exactly what’s going on. Don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment!!

Ken Bettis

Semi annual cleaning. Went fine.

Chelsea Tench

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.

Charles Riehm

Well done, thorough! No problems.

shari Clark

Great location- friendly and professional staff.I love the new decor in the office. Thanks for helping my daughter maintain such a healthy and beautiful smile!

Nancy Polk

I have been coming to this dentist office for over 13 years - the staff is friendly, the appointments are on time every time. I love having Leslie as my hygienist and would be devastated if Dr. Bruce were not to be my dentist. I have several friends who also are patients here and love it as well. Nancy P

Jerry Cox

Highly professional and efficient service, stem to stern. Also the account manager makes it fun to pay my bill!!

Brittany Lewis

They’re very friendly, quick and professional. Plus, their offices are very nice, stylish, new and incredibly clean. Each patient treatment area even has a flat screen tv to keep patients entertained/distracted :)

Jennifer De Soto

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 :)

Megan Moore

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!

Judy Simmons

Since being a patient since 2015, I found the doctors and staff to be very professional, pleasant, and willing to work with me. The look of the office is absolutely gorgeous. Well done, it is beautiful and Andrea cleaned my teeth fantastic. Thanks

Mindy Glass

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.

Jeannine Bartch

Dr. Ojibway and her team have helped me get my smile back. The office is beautiful and the environment is relaxing and very friendly.

Jennifer Rheault

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

Charity Gaffney

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.

Jaime Nance

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!

Tim Hart

Wonderful service, everyone is a professional.

Brenda Taylor

Dr. Ojibway is wonderful, staff is professional and amazingly friendly and office and treatment are beautiful and clean. Would never go anywhere else.

Julie Buckley

Dr Bruce is amazing 😉 just tottaly AWESOME

June Miller

Would highly recommend the wonderful, caring and supporting dentists and their staff! I've had the pleasure of knowing and receiving the very best care from Dr. John Bruce for almost 40 years. We've become friends with him and his family through the years, and he continues to always be there for me and my family. There have been times when I've been a real challenge and he's never let me down. Dr. Bruce is still very young and has high ethical and moral standards when dealing with every patient. Kind of like ole' school back when life was more simple. He continues to exude the same warm and caring attitude and has earned and built a strong following.Thanks for the opportunity of being able to express my gratitude.June Miller

Matthew Sandoz

always a caring personal and professional experience

Bobby Cobb

Friendly Staff and great location.

Andy Yeoman

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 :-(

Adolphine Family

The new office is amazing, I always enjoy and appreciate the professionalism of the staff. The service is very thorough and of high quality. Love going here.

Janet Brown

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.

Carol Smith

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!

Laurie Hardie

The staff is wonderful. The wait time is minimal and the billing department is easy to deal with.

Turner Levison

Dr. Bruce kept me at ease the entire time. He walked me through everything he was doing and I will be seeing him for as long as I'm in Atlanta.

Chuck Waldsmith

Dr. Bruce and the staff is the best! I have been coming here for 20 plus years. They are doing a beautiful remodel now and are almost done with it.

Janie Shaw

Dr. John Bruce is the best dentist! He is gentle, very sensitive to the needs of his patients and takes the time to explain all procedures. He is conservative in his approach and has years of experience. I highly recommend him!😊

Brenda Taylor

The only dentist I have ever had that I don't hate going to. Front staff is always pleasant and professional, techs are friendly and proficient and Dr. Ojibway is the best there is, just love her.

Mizz Major

The staff is personable and pleasant, my hygienist is thee best. I love how she explains with great detail, questions I have, not dumb downed and articulated very well. Then there's Dr. Objibway who by far is the best Dentist I've seen since relocating to GA many, many years ago. I've even recommended colleagues! I highly recommend this practice for your dental needs!

Joy S.

Great staff, great service!

Lauren Weeks

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.

Larry Feinstein

Love dunwoody dental. 7am appointments are amazing. Staff and all dentists are great!!

Melissa Keneely

My appointment today was with Lacey & Dr. O, and they were great! They made sure I was comfortable during the entire visit & were clearly very knowledgeable (as any dentist should be, though I've had problems with questionable dentists in the past). They immediately addressed cosmetic issues I'd been wanting fixed that my previous dentist said couldn't be resolved. I had stains on my veneers that my previous dentist said they couldn't get rid of. When I mentioned the issue to Lacey she said she would be able to polish them off today, and now my teeth look so much better! I'm very happy with my visit today!

Reisa Williams

I always have a great experience when I see Dr. Bruce and the gang.

Leona Leona

Great ❤️Job

Coleman Sproles

The staff does an excellent job explaining any procedures. Make you feel comfortable and very time efficient. Would strongly recommend them.

Shaundra Davis

Great experience and wonderful staff!!
