Dr. McKinley has provided state-of-the-art dental care in Macomb County for over 40 years.

Born in Detroit to Dr. Otis and Phyllis McKinley, Dr. McKinley, along with all of his brothers, followed in the footsteps of his father and became a dentist. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from The University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry in 1974. To date, he continues his yearly tradition of teaching a class to a group of wonderful juniors and seniors at Lutheran High North called Business Character Values. Several of his staff members join him in teaching this class by mentoring a student.

Remaining involved in growing and developing his community, Dr. McKinley is part of a family with a history of hard work, including building McKinley Airport in Fraser, learning to fly solo by age 16, developing the Pine Valley Golf Course in Romeo, serving as a past president of the Romeo Chamber of Commerce and a former president of the Romeo Kiwanis Club, serving as a delegate to Washington DC’s Conference for Small Business, as well as building numerous dental offices throughout Michigan.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy. 

On a more personal note, Dr. McKinley and his wife, Lynn, have six children and five grandchildren.
