Before Dr. McKinlay decided to be 'Dr McKinlay' he was actually busy as a concrete contractor in Idaho.  He'll often reminisce back on the 'glory days' with staff and even talk shop with concrete guys that come in for dental work.  Although his love for concrete lives on, nothing compares to the satisfaction he gets from helping patients get their smile back.  

He went to school at the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in Memphis and enjoyed almost every minute of it.  From there, he and his family came to Greensboro and have enjoyed the great weather and friendly people ever since. Just before graduating, they were blessed to add 'Goldie' to the family--their only girl.  She loves spending time with her big brothers and getting occasional tastes of dad's breath freshener when she visits the office.
