Dr. McLain is a wonderful doctor! I was extremely impressed with the knowledge of the front office staff and assistants and how efficient and friendly they were. Dr. McLain is a very calm, knowledgeable provider that explained the procedure to me thoroughly and took time to answer questions. The procedure went well and I had minimal pain after. The call from him to check on me the evening of the procedure made it a true 5 star experience. Highly recommend this doctor and practice!

Dr. McLain and his staff work together extremely well. During my several appointments, I received thorough explanations about procedures and recommendations. Dr. McLain and staff are very methodical during procedures, adding to my comfort and peace of mind. Everyone in the office seems happy, and all interact freely with a good sense of humor.

Dr. McLain was simply fantastic. I had dental implant surgery and I expected a very long and painful procedure. When I got to the office, Dr. McLain (once again) thoroughly explained everything, and patiently answered all of my questions. I opted for a local anesthetic (Novocaine), and the entire procedure only lasted about 30 minutes. I experienced no post surgery pain (except for very mild soreness at the implant site). No post surgery pain medications were needed.

One week ago today I had some pretty major dental surgery by Dr. McLain. I had no pain afterward and felt very safe and cared for all of the time I was in the office. Today I returned for a check-up and all is well. Dr. McLain and all of the staff with whom I had contact were extremely capable and skilled at what they do. I consider myself very fortunate to have had Dr. McLain and his staff available to me when I needed them. I will recommend this office to anyone who asks.

I recently had a tooth extracted and was nervous. Dr. McLain was very competent, reassuring and friendly and put me at ease. The support staff was also great, especially Shannon. I would highly recommend Dr. McLain.

I recently had a tooth extracted and a placement of an Endosteal Implant. Both procedures went perfectly. Dr. McLain was very thorough and explained in detail both procedures prior to the surgical operations. The staff was very professional, from the Administrative personnel to the surgical team assisting Dr. McLain.

Both my kids had their wisdom teeth removed at this office. The front staff was absolutely amazing. They were so helpful with scheduling and working with my insurance. Both Dr's are thorough and very caring especially to kids. All of the assistants were kind and took a lot of time with both me as the mom and my kids. My teenagers felt very comfortable here. We also never had to wait more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. I would highly recommend this practice.
