Dr. Justin W. McKinlay, DDS
General Dentist, Owner
Dr. McKinlay was born and raised in Idaho, where he met his wife and attended college at BYU Idaho. Those early days were filled with wakeboarding, snowboarding, playing in bands (he was the drummer), and getting an early start on family (before dental school he and his wife already had two kids). Dental school took them to Memphis, TN where they were blessed with two more kids and a wealth of experience in dentistry. When they were in Memphis his wife unfortunately knocked out her front tooth and, right away, Dr. McKinlay was introduced to the importance of doing good work. As his career has developed, he’s found particular interests in sedation and surgery. He loves being able to deliver the anxious patient in a difficult situation to the other side of their dental problems—all while in complete comfort. Urgent Tooth has been the perfect setting for him to lean into this interest.
