Professional Statement

Dr. Craig Neal was born into dentistry! He was born in Frankfurt, Germany at the 97th General Hospital while his father was serving in the Army Dental Corps. Following this brief sojourn in Germany, the Neal family relocated to Seattle, where Dr. Craig grew up. He attended University Preparatory Academy High School and Whitman College in Walla Walla where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with minors in Biology and Chemistry. He then went on to dental school at University of Washington where he graduated in 1994 after receiving numerous clinical awards. Following his graduation from dental school, Dr. Craig then left for New Orleans, Louisiana, where he began an additional six years of education and training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Louisiana State University. He completed his medical education at LSU as well as a general surgery internship and extensive anesthesia training. During that time, Dr. Craig was trained in a wide variety of contemporary Oral and Maxillofacial surgical procedures. Dr. Craig had the unique opportunity to train with some of the most renowned oral and maxillofacial surgeons in the country. These included: Dr. John Kent, a pioneer in the field of orthognathic surgery and temporomandibar joint dysfunction; Dr. Myron Tucker, a guru in the subspecialty of orthognathic surgery, and Dr. Michael Block, an internationally recognized implant leader. Dr. Craig’s special interests lie in oral and facial reconstructive surgery, orthognathic surgery, as well as implants and grafts. In addition, Dr. Craig has conducted numerous research projects involving the study of implants, distraction osteogenesis, and orthognathic surgery. His work has been published in a number of professional journals. Dr. Craig is married to Michelle Fogg Neal, who is an orthodontist in the Kirkland area. They are the proud parents of two children, Collin and Calleia. They are very excited to be living in the Northwest where they can mountain bike, snowboard, kayak, cycle, and hike.
