McCaine, D.D.S. is recognized by Continental Who's Who with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement award in the field of Dentistry as a result of Excellence as both a retired and still working dentist and Assistant Professor of Dentistry at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
Inspired to become a dentist as a child with many cavities, Dr. McCaine vowed to help people save their teeth as his dentist did for him.

On October 26, 1963 he treated his first patient in his own dental office. He stayed part-time for five years, adding a practice day once a year until full-time plus part-time Hospital Attending until 1992. After retiring from his dental practice in 1992, Dr. McCaine wanted to continue to educate others about the field of Dentistry. To achieve this goal, Dr. McCaine joined Montefiore Medical Center as an attending general practice dentist teaching general practice residents.
After retiring from Montefiore, he started work as a dentist attending for Jacobi Medical Center and the North Central Bronx Hospital. As a result of professionalism and expertise in the field of dentistry, Dr. McCaine was honored as a guest lecturer at the 22nd National Convention Jamaica Dental Association, Jamaica, W. I.

After graduating with his D.D.S., Dr. McCaine served as a captain in the US Army Dental Corps for two years and completed a residency at the Montefiore Medical Center.
