Get To Know Dr. McLemore

Dr. McLemore was born in Charleston, South Carolina, and grew up throughout the south, mostly in Naples, Florida. Known to most as just "Chance," he later moved back to his parent's home city of Columbus, Georgia. He went on to attend Auburn University, where he obtained a degree in Microbiology. Wanting to pursue bigger dreams, he received his D.M.D. from the University of Alabama Birmingham School of Dentistry. In 2005, Dr. McLemore met the late Dr. Joseph McNeff. They hit it off immediately, and Dr. McNeff offered Chance the opportunity of a lifetime to join him in his dental practice in Foley, AL. 

He married his wife, Carrie, packed their belongings, and moved to the coast.  Dr. McLemore's many interests include his great love for mission work, including mission trips to Russia and Ukraine. Chance looks forward to pursuing future mission opportunities at home and abroad. He and his wife, Carrie, have two beautiful daughters. He loves spending time with family, playing sports, fishing, and being involved with his church.

Dr. McLemore has additional continuing education in endodontics, cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry, implants, sleep apnea, sedation dentistry, and AAFE certified for Botox.
