Life Before Teeth
Born and raised in Baltimore (Bawwl-more as locals would say), Dr. Craig had childhood dreams of dunking a basketball and playing in the NBA (inspired by Woody Harrelson in WMCJ). And so when some of that didn’t pan out, Dr. Craig decided to serve as an ambassador for social change (living from Ireland to Israel to Uganda), working to improve the world through leadership and athletic endeavors in children. It’s a mission he’s carried with him. And it’s why at KUPD, patients are inspired to put their healthy dental habits toward the greater good.
He is married to his beautiful bride Rebecca and together they have three amazing kids, Carter, Crosby and Bo. Happy places include the beach with the fam, dance-offs with his kids, Disney and Soul Cycle.
