I am Dr. Dean McClelland, and it is a true privilege to be a chiropractor! From my early teenage years growing up in Calgary, I have been fascinated by the complexity and amazing natural healing ability of the human body. It was this keen interest in human anatomy and physiology that led me to pursue my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Trinity Western University from 1993-1997.
After taking a year off from academic pursuits to teach English in South Korea for 6 months, I headed to Toronto to attend the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) from 1998 to 2002.
Shortly after graduation, I had the amazing opportunity to work closely with the Canada Post Corporation as an on-site chiropractor for two of the largest mail sorting facilities in Canada.
In 2006, I founded the Lighthouse Chiropractic Centre in Aurora, which I successfully operated for 10 years. Early in 2016, I joined forces with my good friend and colleague (and neighbour!), Dr. Craig Dingman. We co-founded Elevate Chiropractic Centre in February of 2016.
I have the incredible privilege of being married to my best friend, Caroline. We are the proud parents of three beautiful girls, Holly, Jillian and Claire. Believe me, life is busy in the McLelland house!
When I'm not in the office, I can be found playing the electric guitar, sweating like crazy at Crossfit, or cheering for my favorite teams such as the Calgary Flames, the Toronto Raptors and of course, the Toronto Blue Jays!
If you and your family are wanting to explore health on a greater level, I am happy to see how we can help.
