Our Dentists



Dr. M. Craig Williams, DDS, was born in Raleigh, NC, and lived there until he graduated from Ravenscroft High School.

In high school, he played varsity football, basketball and baseball. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he earned his bachelor of science in business administration. During his four years in Chapel Hill, he enjoyed attending Carolina basketball games at the Smith Center and was lucky enough to travel to Indianapolis for the 1997 Final Four.

After his undergraduate studies, Dr. Williams attended the West Virginia University School of Dentistry, where he learned about sound clinical dentistry and patient care. While in Morgantown, Dr. Craig Williams learned the meaning of being a mountaineer football fan as he lived a stone’s throw from the stadium. He even managed to pick up some lunch money by parking cars in his front yard. If you think UNC fans are crazy about basketball, then you ought to see hundreds of RV’s heading to town the night before a home football game in Morgantown. It is quite exciting. Although he enjoyed his time in the beautiful state of West Virginia, Dr. Craig Williams never forgot the sunny weather and warm southern hospitality of North Carolina.

Upon Graduation from WVU, he moved back to Raleigh and began practicing with his father. Dr. Craig Williams’ wife, Melissa, teaches middle school art at Trinity Academy of Raleigh. They have two sons, Brock and Lawson, and twin girls, Emmaline and Adelaide.

Dr. Craig Williams enjoys playing golf and basketball. He also enjoys using computers and modern dental technologies, like digital X-rays, tooth-colored fillings, Cerec one-visit crowns and using intra-oral cameras.

Dr. Daily earned his bachelor of science degree at James Madison University in 2004, and went on to graduate with honors from the world’s first dental school, the University of Maryland.

He continued on to the University of Florida, and extended his training at a residency program in general dentistry.

With a passion for continuing education, Dr. Daily has trained at some of the nation’s leading institutions including the Dawson Academy and Pankey Institute. He has focused his training and experience in many complex dental procedures including: dental implant placement, bone grafting, wisdom tooth and surgical extractions, root canals, oral and IV sedation, and full mouth reconstruction. He has since earned fellowships from both the International Congress of Oral Implantology (FICOI), as well as the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD).

Dr. Daily played soccer, lacrosse, and tennis in high school, where he also met his wife. They have two boys, Connor and Liam, and a daughter named Carys.

Dr. Michael D. Williams, DDS, a native of Huntington, WV, and a huge fan of the Marshall University Thundering Herd Football team. He attended Marshall University and went on to West Virginia University Dental School after only three years of undergraduate studies. In dental school, Dr. Williams excelled in clinical studies of dentistry.

During his fourth year of dental school, he and his new bride, Connie, took a trip down the east coast to find a place to settle, have a family and start a dental practice. They settled on Raleigh, North Carolina and called it home ever since. Although his ties to West Virginia remained strong, Dr. Williams considered himself a North Carolinian and even allowed his kids to attend the University of North Carolina.

Dr. Williams truly enjoyed cosmetic, rehabilitative and preventive dentistry. He built his practice on the concept of providing the very best treatment in a caring and gentle environment. He found the relationship of oral health and its effects on the total body health very interesting.
