Dr. Nancy McClear

I am Dr. Nancy McClear.  I graduated from the University of Michigan in 1988 and got my D.D.S. degree from the University of Illinois in Chicago in 1992.  After doing a General Practice Residency at the VA Medical Center in Pittsburgh in 1993, I practiced dentistry in Baltimore, Maryland for 10 years.  I returned to my home state of Michigan in 2005 and purchased my existing practice.

Aside from maintaining my private practice in Hastings, I am a member of the ADA, Michigan Dental Association, West Michigan District Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry.  I regularly attend professional continuing education courses to stay current with the latest research studies and technologies.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons.  I also enjoy reading, gardening, and movies.


Hi.  My name is Deb.  I manage the front desk.  I received a Dental Assisting Certificate from Lansing Community College in 1988.  I worked as a dental assistant for ten years.  Then, I opened a home childcare business to spend more time with my amazing family—husband, Wayne and two daughters, Laken and Grace.  

As my own children got older, I found myself wanting to be back in the dental field.  I came back to work for Dr. Nancy McClear.

I love working at the front desk, and occasionally get the opportunity to use my dental assisting skills as well.  My transition back to the work force has been good because of the great staff I work with.  It is a pleasure to work for the office of Dr. Nancy McClear.


Hello.  My name is Lisa.  I am the Dental Assistant.  I have been an assistant for 19 years, and have worked for Dr. McClear for the past five years.  I graduated from Grand Rapids Educational Center, GREC, in 1991.

I have been happily married for 16 years and have a son who attends Maple Valley Schools.  I love Zumba and ran my first 5K race this past summer!

I enjoy working with our patients and look forward to treating your dental needs.
