Dr. Byron McKnight and his dental care team focus on patients and deliver exceptional results. There is no rushed treatment here. The initial comprehensive evaluation begins with an interview with Dr. McKnight to enable him to get to know you, understand your goals and concerns, accurately evaluate your dental needs, and assist you in making wise treatment decisions. Truly personalized care is a reality in our Mesquite dental office because we schedule only a few patients per day. To make your dental visit a joy, we offer massages, refreshments, a DVD library, Internet access, and we can even have lunch delivered for you.
Dr. McKnight will consider the big picture, taking a comprehensive approach to your evaluation, restorations, and smile enhancements. We will meticulously gather data from your eval, organize our findings into a clear, visual presentation for your review, and help you understand the pros and cons of various treatment options so that you can make an informed choice. This co-diagnosis system allows us to build partnerships with our patients, which translates into strong, healthy smiles.
Dr. McKnight's career is marked not only by a sincere concern for his work here in the practice, but by a commitment to ongoing education as well. He has logged over 2500 hours of general continuing education credit hours covering advanced dental topics such as complex restorative dentistry, implants, cosmetic dentistry and treatment for problems with snoring and sleep apnea. Several times a year he presents instructional programs to various local, state and national dental groups.
Other experience includes:
Baylor College of Dentistry, Associate Clinical Professor
The Academy of General Dentistry, Texas Dentist of the Year Nominee
The American Academy of Dentistry, Fellow
The International Academy of Dentistry, Fellow

Also, in 2009 Dr. McKnight received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of General Dentistry, an award which had been given to only 80 dentists in the world.
One of the reasons we can provide such careful, competent dentistry is that our entire team is highly trained in our various areas of expertise, representing a total of over 100 years of hands-on experience. But beyond this technical investment, we have also invested in the people of our practice as well. In fact, when you come in, we spend as much time as it takes to thoroughly listen, understand your concerns, and tailor our services to meet your individual needs. It's an approach that requires efficient teamwork and long-term commitment to excellence. We invite you to come in and experience it for yourself!
