Welcoming New Patients to Our Family!

Thank You for Choosing Knellinger Dental Excellence

As a family of dentists, we are more inclined to treat our patients like family. We want you to feel comfortable as soon as you walk through the door. A big part of feeling relaxed comes from knowing what to expect and feeling prepared. That is why you will be greeted promptly by one of our friendly and knowledgeable team members who will guide you through your first appointment. You will be introduced to the dentist in a private office and allowed time to discuss your smile goals and dental concerns with him or her. We will then discuss your medical and dental history as disclosed on your new patient forms. For your convenience, and out of respect for your time, all of our new patient forms are available online.
