Meet Dr. McKay

Dr. Michael McKay is a proud member of the Selah Community.

“Selah has always been a special place for me. I met my wife in Selah 10 years ago and I have always felt a wonderful connection with the town. As the owner and only family dentist of Selah Creek Dental, I am committed to helping the community, as well as providing a comfortable and caring environment. What I enjoy most about being a dentist is really getting to know my patients. I want people to feel comfortable talking and sharing their concerns and feel like they are with friends, and not just a chart number.

I am excited to have the opportunity to provide oral care for the residents of Selah and the surrounding communities.

My favorite part of being a dentist is building lasting relationships with patients. From a baby’s first tooth all the way to your 100th birthday, helping patients achieve the smile they are happy with is my goal for all patients. Happiness is different for everyone, so whether it is helping you get the smile of your dreams, or just keeping your mouth healthy, we are here to help.

I really try to encourage a relaxed atmosphere at our practice. We understand that coming to the dentist is not always everyone’s favorite part of the day, so we try to promote an atmosphere where we can all laugh, talk, and have an environment where it’s okay to be nervous, but we will do our best to help you relax. Whether that is putting you to sleep, or just joking around, we try our best to make you feel comfortable.

I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children, golfing (poorly), working out, cheering for the Seahawks (loudly), attempting to cook, and making the best worst dad jokes. I am also a member of the Yakima dental society, ADA, and Selah Chamber of Commerce.”
