Balancing Oral Health and Aesthetics
Dr. Vincent McClane knew he wanted to be a dentist from a very young age. After his parents broke the sad news when he was four years old that he could not grow up to be a dragon, he developed a passion for dentistry instead.
Dentistry combines complex mechanical engineering challenges with the ability to work with people, providing them with beautiful, healthy smiles, about which Dr. McClane is truly passionate. It is his belief that everyone can have great oral health, and together, he can help patients achieve the smile of their dreams and help them maintain it in a comfortable, safe environment.
