Dr. Craig A. Hayes, Jr.

Dr. Hayes is from Nevada, MO and joined Joplin/Cassville Dental Care in June 2011. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2002 with a BA in Biology .IMG_2284___Copy.JPG

In 2007, he received his dental degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. After graduation, Dr. Hayes began his Naval career at Naval Hospital Great Lakes completing a one year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency. After 4 years of Naval service Dr. Hayes and his family made the decision to move back to SW Missouri. Dr. Hayes had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Thompson and his team in 2011 and knew this was where he was meant to be. 

Dr. Hayes has been married to his high school sweetheart since 2003 and they have 2 children, Craig and Audrey. He enjoys playing many sports and closely follows the Missouri Tigers, as well as spending time outdoors hunting deer, turkey, and elk. Although he is no longer on active duty in the US Navy, Dr. Hayes is a true Patriot and has tremendous respect for those who have served.

Dr. Hayes recently purchased the practice in OCT 2012 and is excited to continue the tradition of providing high quality dentistry to patients. He has earned over 400 units of Continuing Education in 5 years and keeps up on the latest in dentistry to ensure the best care to patients.
