Craig Mcmullen, DDS, MS

Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics

I am originally from Hillsdale, Michigan. I grew up playing football, basketball and baseball. In 2007 (my junior year in high school) we won a baseball state championship. After high school I went to Michigan State University to pursue my education. I received my BS at MSU and did research in microbiology, working on the gut microbiome project. I studied dentistry at the University of Michigan and did research on the Class II Carriere appliance. I was fortunate to have my research published in the very prestigious The Angle Orthodontist Journal. From there, I studied orthodontics at the University Of Michigan and focused my research studies on MARPE, a novel approach to orthopedic expansion in skeletally mature patients.

I am passionate about travel, golf, watching sports, working out and spending time with my family and fiancé, Alex.

He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1988, graduating top of his class. He then completed a one-year general practice residency at Sinai Hospital in Detroit, where he gained experience in dental trauma, oral surgery and orthodontics.

After practicing general dentistry for two years, Dr. Stroster return to the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry to complete a master’s degree in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. Upon graduating in 1993, he and Dr. Hamway opened their first orthodontic office in Brighton, Michigan. Several years later, in 1998, they opened a second office in South Lyon and eventually opened their third office in Howell in 2019. Since the beginning, it has always been Dr. Stroster’s goal to provide top class orthodontic care and excellent customer service to all of his patients while also keeping up to date on all technical advances in orthodontics.

Outside of the office, Dr. Stroster enjoys golfing, traveling, and cooking with his wife and three children. He and his wife have recently become grandparents.
