About Doctor McClary

I am a workaholic with a passion for attention to detail when creating the most perfect smile possible. My dedication to every patient means providing high quality, effective orthodontic care that results in beautiful and functional smiles. I am pleased and proud to have treated the most Invisalign patients of any orthodontist in South Carolina and bring that experience to each new Invisalign treatment.
