Dr Sandy McLean brings over 25 years of dental experience to bayside Wynnum. As owner and lead dentist at Wynnum Dentists, Sandy joins dentist Peter Leask and hygienist Alicia Deckart in Wynnum’s health hub at 95 Clara Street.
Until recently, Sandy was principal of McLeans Dental in Brisbane CBD from 2000 until its sale to National Dental Care. Sandy has worked in the United Kingdom and, while based at Mount Isa, as Far North Queensland’s “flying dentist” for five years. He has also worked as a locum on Norfolk Island and in a pro-bono capacity for Aboriginal health services in Queensland and New South Wales.
Sandy possesses a particular clinical focus on preventive dentistry. His breadth of experience and common sense allows him to provide the full complement of general dental services, as well as to discern situations where it is desirable to refer for specialist treatment. Sandy’s experience with smaller rural and indigenous communities, and work treating children within the remote school dental service, have provided an appreciation of the difficulties in providing health care as well as the challenges faced by those living in rural, indigenous, and under-privileged communities.
A keen sailor, Sandy is delighted to relinquish the CBD bustle and practice alongside beautiful Moreton Bay.
Peter has always lived In Brisbane, and after graduating from his dental degree at University of Queensland, began his practice in Wynnum over 39 years ago. In that time, he has also served for 20 years in the Australian Army Dental Corps, as well as serving on several committees of the Australian Dental Association.
Peter enjoys dealing with people in a friendly, caring manner and has shown commitment to the local community in many ways. He particularly values the need for continuing education in dentistry.
Outside of the dental practice, Peter enjoys time with his wife, Gail, their children, and their grandchildren. He loves travel, fishing, gardening, and tennis.
Bayside local Alicia Deckart brings over 25 years of experience as a dental hygienist to Wynnum Dentists, the majority of these spent at Dr Trevor Gaw’s Wynnum Dental Centre. Alicia has also served eight years in the Royal Australian Air Force.
Alicia is enthusiastic about oral health and disease prevention, and loves interacting with her patients and catching up with everything that’s going on in their lives. She has a large, blended family of five boys and one grandson, and enjoys spending time with her family and her partner Craig. You might catch them on days off, boating on their old bay cruiser around Moreton Bay and the islands.
