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.

I had my wisdom teeth extracted with Dr. McLain in Dillon, and I could not have been happier with the experience! I had put off having this procedure done at a younger age because I was so nervous, but the minute I met Dr. McLain and staff, I was at ease. Dr. McLain was kind, patient, and took time to answer the questions that I had. He is very efficient and I was comfortable and safe throughout the whole procedure. I highly recommend Dr. McLain! One of the best patient experiences I have had.

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.
in Denver, CO |
My second visit with Dr. McLain for extraction of another broken tooth. As much as a visit to the dentist is never the most enjoyable e vent, I have to say that Dr. McLain and all his staff are excellent!!! I will always return to him for like problems.
