Dr. Richard McFarland enjoys getting to know his patients and seeing how orthodontics can dramatically improve the self-esteem and, consequently, the confidence of children and adults alike. Located at 651 Cross Timbers Road, Suite 100, in Flower Mound, and 5910 Paige Road in The Colony, McFarland Orthodontics offers the ultimate in world-class, individualized, patient-centric care.
Dr. McFarland received his undergraduate degree at Baylor University where he was a member of the varsity football team. He attended dental school at the University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston and holds a membership in the Omicron Kappa Epsilon National Dental Honor Society. He is one of only two board certified orthodontists in the Flower Mound.
McFarland Orthodontics is committed to staying abreast of all the latest state-of-the-art practices, equipment, and technology available in the field of orthodontics. Their modern facility hosts the best sterilization system available to safeguard patients’ health and safety. McFarland Orthodontics employs cutting-edge orthodontic technology such as iTERO and Invisalign to maximize the efficiency of braces and minimize the time you will have to spend in wearing them.
Shortly after opening his practice, Dr. McFarland noticed the difficulty local schoolteachers had bringing their kids in for dental care. His office hours coincided with when school was in session, and teachers couldn’t skip classes. The Brace Bus was born as a solution to the problem and has provided kids with transportation to the dentist’s office ever since.
“When a patient leaves the office with a smile they’re proud to show off, I know I’ve made a positive difference in their life,” says Dr. McFarland. “My goal is to provide the highest quality care to my patients, so I continue my education through seminars and courses on the best and most effective orthodontic treatments available.”
Dr. McFarland’s faith and family values show strongly in his constant efforts to give back to the community. Locally, he sponsors the Flower Mound High School Athletes for Literacy Program, as he has done for two decades, along with several LISD sponsorships.
Internationally, he is involved with the Serving Him ministry, currently shouldering responsibility for all the outreach Serving Him performs in Central America. He has assisted in the building a clinic to provide the people of Guatemala with basic dental care they would otherwise lack. The clinic took several years to build—Dr. McFarland has been traveling to Guatemala for 15 years–and is opening this year. Dr. McFarland and his team will be leaving in early March to spend a week in Guatemala performing basic dental procedures such as tooth extractions and restorative dental work.
