In 1987 Dr McGlade joined Dr Martyn Riley and with the later inclusion of Dr Sandro D’Adamo, together, they have enjoyed an enduring association providing orthodontic care to patients in the northern and western regions of Melbourne.
Dr McGlade has been the secretary of the local Australian Dental Association regional group and a clinical demonstrator in orthodontics to final year students at University of Melbourne. He has an interest in all aspects of orthodontic management and is happy to explore and discuss all options for treatment.
Outside dentistry, Dr McGlade is a keen cyclist and has participated in many cycling events to raise money for charity. If he is not watching one of his boys' sporting events, he is dressed in lycra and out on his bike.
