What brought you to Connecticut?Twenty-plus years ago, Bridgeport/Fairfield welcomed me to the community as a Dentist/Dental Director at a Community Health Center and as an Associate Dentist in Fairfield. I was blessed to build strong relationships with many patients who continued their dental wellness with our office after our move to Stamford. Over the years, we have been asked many times to open an office closer to the Bridgeport /Fairfield area. The time was right, and a great opportunity presented itself.

What brought you to Connecticut?Upon my graduation from Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center's GPR program, I practiced in Bridgeport for four years. During that time, I developed great relationships with the community and enjoyed the immersion into the city's cultural diversity. That being said, returning to Bridgeport after four years away felt natural. I look forward to forging even stronger relationships and becoming a staple and anchor in the dental community of such a flourishing city.

Gracelyn S.

Dr. McLean's dental expertise and kind disposition are second to none. I have known her personally and professionally for 25 years and can vouch for her excellence as a dentist and a human being.

Lynn S.

Dr. Mclean is honest, extremely professional and her friendly office staff and physical environment makes for a welcoming, comfortable experience.

Rosa J.

I can't say enough how grateful to have Dr. McClean as my dentist. She makes visiting the dentist a pleasurable experience. She is honest, has integrity and has a very open personality/disposition. My kids and I enjoy going. I may have a future dentist as my daughter watched and inquired about how Dr. McClean cleaned her brother's teeth. Dr. McClean was very patient and answered all of my daughter's questions. Again, Dr. McClean is an awesome dentist! 😊 😍 👍
