When someone is convinced they’ve found their go-to doctor for all their oral surgery needs, they’re not shy about telling friends, family, coworkers, and even total strangers to go see the same guy. Dr. Mark Craig isn’t quite ready to proclaim himself as “that guy” in the eyes of McKinney residents near and far, but he admits that he must be doing something right.

“It’s as if everyone spent the summer telling each other, ‘You need to go see Dr. Craig,’” he said with a laugh. “The word of mouth is incredible, to the point where we haven’t slowed down one bit. I don’t know why they come, but I’m glad they do.”

A Name You Know, Care You Can Depend On

For the past 18 years, Dr. Craig has been so synonymous with everything from wisdom teeth removal to reconstructive procedures that even residents who haven’t visited him yet at least know his name and where to find him. Dr. Craig has been board certified as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon since 1999, a distinction that sets him apart from most dental professionals.

His individualized care includes dental implants, oral pathology, bone and soft-tissue grafting, cosmetic procedures, anesthesia services, and more. So, if it’s a painful tooth that caused an infection, or a child needs their wisdom teeth removed, Dr. Craig can do it. If it’s a diagnosis such as a misaligned jaw or another debilitating condition, Dr. Craig has the knowledge and experience necessary to help.

He’s also the only full-time oral surgeon in McKinney who owns his practice, which means patients don’t see any doctor at Mark A. Craig, DDS, MD other than Dr. Craig. That’s a big deal in an age where corporately owned oral surgery and dental practices are commonplace. And patients are taking notice.

“When patients go to competitors, their biggest complaints are impersonal service, the length of time they spend in the office, and the lack of attention. It’s like no one cares,” said Dr. Craig. His practice is often looked to for second opinions after patients have seen someone else. “We spend time with each patient. We want to hold their hand the entire way.”

A Unique Approach

Dr. Craig’s unique approach to patient care can be described as a blend of clinical excellence and a personal style that emphasizes the importance of the doctor-patient relationship. His commitment to providing exceptional care in a safe and pleasant environment means that you and your family will always receive care that exceeds your expectations.

I had someone come in the other day who was in their late 90s, and we realized that we had been caring for three or four generations of their family,” Dr. Craig said. “We are here to take care of their needs with a level of service that goes beyond anything they’ve received in the past.”
