He was stationed in Stuttgart, Germany, where he practiced all facets of general dentistry in a group practice setting with eight other dentists and specialists.

Additionally, Dr. McLean was selected for advanced training in clinical oral surgery. He excelled in a four month training program specifically geared towards procuring proficiency in the removal of impacted and diseased teeth as well as the management of oral pathological conditions.

As an Army Officer, Dr. McLean deployed to Bagram, Afghanistan for six months where he and another dentist provided complex restorative and surgical care to a military population of approximately 40,000 US and Coalition Forces. Dr. McLean has also held appointments as Acting Clinic Commander of the Stuttgart Dental Clinic and held key and essential administrative positions within the Army Dental Care System.
