She rounded out her education at UMKC School of Dentistry earning her AEGD (Advanced Education in General Dentistry) in 1998.
Dr. McKnight has practiced dentistry for over twenty years, with ten years in this location, and she has been featured as a Top Dentist in Kansas City for the past seven years.
“I love that I have these long-term friendships with my patients! It feels great to know that I am at the point in my career that the dentistry comes naturally so I can focus more on the relationships with my clients and their overall wellbeing. I also love working with my team every day; they are a great group of women.”
When Dr. McKnight enjoys time away from the practice, you can count on her playing golf and exercising. She also enjoys traveling with her family and friends whenever possible. Her two teenage boys are both athletes, and you can find Dr. McKnight cheering them on from the sidelines.
When things slow down, she loves to create delicious masterpieces in the kitchen.
