Dr. Sallaway

Dr. McKay Sallaway is a native Texan having been born and raised in Carrollton, a suburb just north of Dallas. After gradating high school she ventured out to Provo, Utah where she graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Exercise Physiology and a Minor in Chemistry. Dr. Sallaway maintained her place on the Dean’s List for the entirety of her enrollment at BYU.

As a member of the International Association for Dental Research, a global association for those involved with dental, oral, and craniofacial research, Dr. Sallaway is committed to continuously studying and understanding the most current dental science and evidence-based treatment planning available.

Dr. Sallaway is also a member of several other professional societies and organizations including the American Dental Association and her local chapter of the Texas Dental Association. She is dedicated to life-long learning and enjoys continuing education courses each year as she strives to maintain her expertise in the dental field. It is her goal to always provide the highest level of quality care in her daily practice. 
In 2021, Dr. Sallaway married the love of her life, Ben, and they now live happily just south of Krum with their two dogs, Penny and Zoey. In her free time, you will catch Dr. Sallaway going for a run through her neighborhood, boating at the lake with her husband, or just spending time with one of her 10 local nieces and nephews. She is also an avid Dallas Cowboys fan—no matter how the season is going. Dr. Sallaway loves her patients and is proud to be a team member at Krum Dental.
