A Family Tradition in Dentistry

Mary McLellan

Dr. Diane’s dental assistant for 28 years, until her passing in 2015, was her mother Mary, known by all for her warm smile and loving care.  Mary was no stranger to attending chair side; she served as a dental assistant to her husband for 14 years before his passing in 1968.

Mr. McLellan

Many of Dr. Diane’s patients are actually the children and grandchildren of her father’s former patients, a testament to the long legacy of dentistry in the McLellan family.
