A Commitment to Excellence

Our mission is to provide the highest quality orthodontic care in a professional, understanding and caring atmosphere. We aim to help all our patients achieve optimum oral health through prevention, education, and treatment.

We take a conservative approach to treatment, exploring all possible alternatives before recommending an approach that addresses concerns and achieves excellent results. By striving to offer the highest quality orthodontic services, we hope to motivate our patients to choose excellence and enjoy the long-term benefits of their treatments.

Ethics and Innovation

We live by the Golden Rule: treat our patients the way that we would want to be treated. We take the time to explain every diagnosis thoroughly, as well as every potential treatment option. Every member of our team is accountable for a positive patient experience and we aim to exceed your expectations with every visit.

We are also committed to being recognized leaders in orthodontics, by continuing to learn and explore innovations in our industry, and sharing our knowledge with patients and colleagues. We employ what we believe are the most innovative tools, technologies, and appliances in our practice and explore complementary therapies when appropriate.

Comprehensive Treatment

Our goal is to go beyond simply straightening teeth, and offer a blend of orthodontics and comprehensive dentistry. This allows us to help each patient achieve healthy, beautifully aligned teeth that fit harmoniously together at properly positioned jaw joints.

This approach promotes the proper function of all aspects of oral health: efficient chewing, well-functioning airway passages, proper lip support, and ideal facial balance. We achieve this goal with careful treatment planning, using the most modern and thorough diagnostic tools, detailed study, and a comprehensive treatment plan.

A Holistic Approach

Many people are unaware that facial structure, dentition, and breathing are so closely connected. The position of the jaw affects not only how we bite and chew, but also how we breathe. For this reason, Dr. Knight provides airway evaluation for his patients and is certified in the Buteyko Clinical Method. In many cases, this holistic therapy can improve breathing patterns, and has positive effects on sleep breathing disorders, such as snoring and sleep apnea, as well as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) function. In addition, proper nasal breathing can have far-reaching benefits to all major body systems and result in improved overall wellness and cognitive function.

Bioesthetics

Some patients have teeth that are not only misaligned but also are not the proper shape and form. Although Dr. Knight can orthodontically straighten the teeth, sometimes proper function is unachievable due to inadequate tooth form. In these cases, proper form can be re-established with restorative dentistry following orthodontic treatment. This results in more beautiful, better functioning teeth.

Bioesthetic orthodontics is based on a combination of biologic form and functional occlusion goals. By arranging the teeth to work in harmony with the alignment of the jaw joints, a more stable result is attainable. Beauty and form in perfect alignment—the secret to a healthy smile!

My issue was more complicated than simply braces to straighten teeth - it included extensive jaw advancement surgery as well. Dr Knight and his staff were great through the entire 18 month process - always available, always willing to answer any questions and they also maintained constant communication with the surgeon so that everyone was always on the same page which was very comforting.

Dr. Knight and his staff have been wonderful throughout the entire process starting with braces for my daughter and now my son. Both of my children had positive experiences with Dr. Knight and his staff. I would highly recommend Knight Orthodontics to anyone. Thanks for making my children's smiles even more beautiful!
