They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.

When Dr. McCalley is not in the office, one might be able to catch him around town performing with his all-dentist band, Novocaine. He also enjoys spending time with his two sons, Jack and Geoffrey, who have made him a very proud father.
