The people working here were lovely and helpful, and the office is super clean!! Audrey was my hygienist, she was veryprofessional and friendly and made me feel more at ease, since it had been awhile since my last cleaning. Dr. Eric was very nice and had good things to say, even offered me good advice and options for a problem I'm having. I'd recommend this new, young office to anyone, especially people who've fallen off with their oral care. Also Netflix is available (on the ceiling!) as they are cleaning! Very modern and polite and I'm actually excited to start going back to the dentist.

I was nervous cause it was my first time going to a dentist in this city. I was in a lot of pain and wasn't sure how serious was my problem. The efficiency and professionalism was incredible, and they patiently answeredall my questions. I'm recommending this dentist/place to all my friends.

Dr Chen cleans my teeth and she is awesome. A few of my previous experiences with other doctors feel a little bit pain on gum but she took it carefully and no pain at all!!!

This was a great appointment. I was really nervous going in as someone who is generally anxious about dentists, but both my dental hygienist and Dr. McLean were superb. Really nice, explained everything they were doing, and I felt very safe in their hands.

My experience at Grand Dental with Dr. McLean was the best experience I've had at a dentist as an adult: everyone from the receptionist to the dental hygienist to Dr. McLean was extremely friendly and helpful. The cleaning was thorough andthe hygienist checked in multiple times to make sure I was comfortable. She also asked questions about by flossing and gave some (gentle) recommendations. Dr. McLean also took the time to explain a few issues and to make sure I would have access to pictures he took documenting the issues in case I ever switch dentists (which I definitely don't plan on doing). He also answered my questions about tooth whitening and was the only dentist I've ever been to that hasn't tried to upsell me on treatments that are unlikely to work. I can't say going to the dentist is exactly fun, but this is as good as it gets (they even had The Office playing on the ceiling so patients can watch while in the chair!).

All of the staff were absolutely fantastic. They took my info ahead of time, checked with my insurance to make sure I was covered. Communicated so quickly and personably. John at the front desk is so helpful. I can’t remember thetechnicians name but she was very good and very thorough with the teeth cleaning and not judgmental about me not coming in for a while. I actually saw Dr. Deepan Patel. He was very friendly, relaxed and professional. He fixed my retainer and took time to ask me questions and make sure everything was feeling okay. 1000% reccomend this office.

Old building with charming and helpful staff. The Doc was great and the staff really blew me away. I was used to waiting like 45 minutes before being seen and the Doc showing up for like 10 seconds. Doc Eric McLeanperformed the cleaning himself and was personable which help ease the nerves of someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a while... Would Recommend to family and friends!

Going to the dentist is not everyone's number one priority, especially when it's been a while since the last visit. From check-in to check-out, Dr. McLean and his staff were fantastic. Would recommend to anyone who is overdue for a check up.

As someone who took an embarrassing amount of time off between dental appointments, it was nice how Dr. McLean and his team were understanding and kind about it. I was also very happy to note that there wasn't any attempts toup sell or convince me to undergo unnecessary procedures. They professionally and amicably treated my for the cleaning and check-up I had come in for - nothing else!

Great dentist and great dentist office. Dr. McLean and his team offer unparalleled organization and customer service! I have gone to them for almost two years now after having some less than desirable dentist experiences and now I wouldn't dream of going to anyone else.

Very thorough and considerate. I had concerns about getting a filling and Dr. McLean removed all of the concerns. I did my research online about proper practices. Dr. McLean did everything suggested such as the pre numbing gel. The assistantwas great too. they hardly communicated they were so in sync. I highly recommend this dentist.

I have a serious fear of the dentist but knew I had to see one for a chipped tooth. The staff were all compassionate and reassuring, Dr McClean included. He gave options without guilt or pressure. I even signed up togo back for a cavity filling so I guess it worked :-)

I was terrified of going to the dentist, having not been for several years. Dr. McLean heard out all of my concerns and put me at ease with his friendly, knowledgeable approach. Not only did he explain everything how all ofhis tools worked, Dr. McLean was willing to work with me in scheduling a second cleaning. The staff was very friendly as well. I'm no longer afraid of going to the dentist. Thanks Dr. McLean!
