Park Dental Blaine Dentist Corine McLellan
By Corine N. McLellan, DDS
Park Dental Blaine East

In this week’s installment of “Get to Know the Park Dental Doctors”, we’re introducing you to Dr. Corine McLellan at Park Dental Blaine East.  With over 20 years of service with Park Dental, Dr. McLellan tells us what she finds most rewarding about being a dentist and the group practice setting.  She also shares a few fun facts about herself.  Enjoy learning more about Dr. McLellan!

What made you choose dentistry? 
I chose dentistry because I wanted to be in the health field and serve people.  My mom is a nurse and my dad a pharmacist, so when I had my wisdom teeth taken out, I thought,” I could be a dentist!” 

What do you love most about being a dentist or what do you find the most rewarding? 
The relationships that I have made with my patients is the most rewarding part of dentistry.  I love to watch young patients grow up, witness the confidence that shows when a smile is restored, relieving a tooth ache that may have kept someone up all night, and helping to relieve anxiety as we work together to complete a procedure.   

What’s your care/treatment philosophy? 
My philosophy of care is to achieve optimum dental health while prioritizing patient needs and expectations.  We develop a treatment plan together and I strive to encourage good home care habits and education to help reduce future dental work needs. 

Is there a particular area of dentistry you enjoy the most or like to focus on? 
I really enjoy restoring one’s smile whether it is through fixing a chipped front tooth or delivering a denture.   

When did you start or how many years have you been with Park Dental? 
I started with Park Dental right out of dental school almost 21 years ago.   

What is one thing you love most about Park Dental? 
Park Dental is doctor owned so the focus is on patient care not just financial goals.  

What do you enjoy most about being part of a group practice? 
In group practice, I am able to collaborate with my fellow doctors on treatment plans or to discuss unique situations, I can learn from others’ experiences, and I can develop confidence to try new or challenging procedures knowing their support is right down the hall thereby enhancing my growth as a dentist.   

And now for a little fun, let’s get to know Dr. McLellan on a personal level.
