McFarland Family Dentistry opened its doors in The Executive Building at 11 South 7th Street in Miles City, Montana in June of 1993. Doctor Garret McFarland, Dentist, was starting his first practice. He and his wife, Dental Hygienist Tammie McFarland, knew that Miles City was the community where they wanted to practice dentistry and raise their family.
In 2005, to better serve the rapidly growing dental practice and keep pace with the consistently evolving technologies of dentistry, the McFarland Family Dentistry building was constructed and opened at 520 Main Street. Besides being conveniently located for Miles City residents and having lots of parking, the new, ultra-modern dental offices have six spacious treatment rooms for the dentist and his patients, a modern dental laboratory and a large, airy waiting area. This new facility affords the dentist the opportunity to “help people by providing quality dental care painlessly, and in a pleasant, relaxing, comfortable environment.”

Today, McFarland Family Dentistry has a professional staff of five, as well as the dentist, Doctor McFarland, and his wife, Dental Hygienist Tammie McFarland. Doctor McFarland’s dental practice is truly a family practice; offering a complete range of dental services with special focus on cosmetic dentistry and the installation of one-day crowns: only a single visit to the dentist is necessary to have a tooth crowned at McFarland Family Dentistry. The dentist can perform all the necessary preparations to the tooth, and then fabricate the new crown in the laboratory using computer-controlled technology. The dentist then installs the crown and finishes it for a perfect bite and appearance.
