He immediately began to develop a new vision for the modern dental practice with a goal to deliver comprehensive dental care in a singular, all inclusive facility and continues to pioneer this progressive approach to the delivery of dental services.

In addition to assembling a team of the finest dental and medical professionals from all disciplines of the field, he also places a strong importance on living out the company’s core values, which include embracing and driving change, pursuing growth and learning, building a positive team and family spirit, and more.

Dr. Craig is an expert lecturer for Invisalign and Spodak Dental Group is one of the few Top 1 Percent providers of Invisalign in the world. He is dedicated to giving back to the community and is a former chairman of the Delray Beach planning and zoning department, in addition to currently serving as an Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse (AVDA) board of director.

"Today was a great day even though we were down 1 doctor, 2 treatment coordinators and 3 assistants. We have been cross-training our stakeholders and to make 10 columns work, there was a collective playing of musical chairs today and it worked almost flawlessly (I was the weak link to keeping on time). Truly it was amazing, though I hope we don’t do it again too soon. I think what happened today was a direct reflection of our people taking the initiative and working as a team from hiring to training to implementing. Thank you for coaching us".

            - Dr. David Neil, Adventure Dental


"I went from over forty hours/wk in the practice to just eight.  That is priceless!"
