Meet the doctor

Dr. Brenna McLain

I want to take you on my life’s journey into the world of sleep management. Growing up, I watched both of my parents practice as dentists.  I found it to be a beautiful field mixing art, creativity, science, and medicine. So I chose to go to dental school hoping to help improve peoples’ dental health and wellness.

After I started practicing, I discovered it was incredibly difficult for me to listen to the constant onslaught of my patients' mistrust, fear, pain, and negativity, especially when my main focus was to serve their dental needs in order to help them be healthier.

I was constantly being told, “I hate the dentist”.  I started to feel very discouraged about dentistry as a whole.

To make matters worse, at that time in my career, I was working as a dentist inside of the Pentagon; the epicenter of people who are overworked, overtired, and overstressed.  

It is a grueling and challenging environment.  The dental office was the last place anyone wanted to be.  So my daily work didn’t feel like a profession, it felt like a job that I had to drudge through every day.

Coincidentally around the same time, my father left traditional dentistry in pursuit of a new and emerging treatment field, dental sleep medicine.

For some context;  as a medical community, we have really only started to understand, diagnose, and treat sleep apnea since the 1980s.  

I watched my father become a pioneer, blazing a new path outside of the standard dental office.

I watched him adopt dental appliance therapy into his practice, and I saw how different and transformative it was for peoples’ overall lives.  It was illuminating and exciting to watch that evolution.

During the initial years of my career, I spent a lot of time considering my career trajectory and I didn’t want to have to go to a job every day that I wasn’t passionate about.

I wanted to have a purpose for showing up.  While in the Pentagon, I started focusing my attention more strongly on dental sleep medicine and I got to watch how truly life-changing a good night’s rest can be.

I witnessed it positively impacting my patients everywhere all the way from the White House down to my own bedroom where my husband and I have both benefited from better nights thanks to dental devices. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to change my course and focus on sleep.  I love watching the spark that better sleep has on people’s health and well-being.

Now I have a mission to create healthier bedrooms everywhere.  And I am thrilled to report that my patients are actually excited to see me, and are no longer fearful of coming to their appointments.  

If you are looking to recapture your days, I would be honored to walk side by side with you.  Let’s see how a good night can truly change your life!
