Dr. Kristen Knecht
Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Dr. Kristen Knecht attended Louisiana State University where she received a BS in Biology. She immediately attended the LSU School of Dentistry in New Orleans where she graduated 2nd in her class. Dr. Knecht is a member of numerous professional societies for outstanding academic and clinical performance including the C. Edmund Kells Honorary Society and the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honorary Dental Society.
Before pursuing her DDS degree, Dr. Knecht knew she wanted to specialize, and began spending time in a local orthodontist’s office. She quickly realized that this specialty was a perfect fit for her and her personality. She is a perfectionist who loves “attention-to-detail”, and she was seeking a professional fit that would allow her disposition to impact peoples’ lives in a profound and positive way.
One of the most important things to understand about choosing an orthodontist is that there truly is no "one size fits all" approach to what you are doing. Your smile directly impacts your self-esteem, confidence, and the impression that you project to the outside world. We believe that creating a beautiful smile is a truly life-changing experience.
If you are having a hard time deciding which option is right for your child, don't worry. Dr. Knecht will go over everything with you during your appointment and advise you of your options. In this way, you will have all the information necessary to make the best decision possible going forward.
For decades, it seemed the only way to achieve a straighter smile was to endure years of braces and endless office visits. Invisalign has flipped the script with its patented alignment system, yet few people understand what Invisalign is or how it works. Request your appointment with Dr. Knecht today.
