About Our Practice
One of the most important things to understand when choosing an orthodontist is 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. The confidence you gain when you go through orthodontic treatment is unparalleled, and that is why we are so passionate about providing the best possible treatment for all of our patients.
We specialize in helping kids, teens, and adults achieve a straight and beautiful smile through traditional or ceramic braces, as well as Invisalign treatment. If you would simply like to discuss your own orthodontics needs with Dr. Knecht in more detail, please do not hesitate to contact us today.
What Makes Knecht Orthodontics Unique
At Knecht Orthodontics, you will find a fun and relaxed office that was designed with you in mind. Our goal is to create a warm and inviting atmosphere to help you enjoy your visits throughout your journey to a beautiful new smile. Our state of the art technology ensures that you will receive optimum results as well. We are proud to use the latest technology such as iTero, digital impressions, and all digital x-rays in our very own office.
One of the most important qualities of Knecht Orthodontics - and the thing that makes it such a unique environment - is that Dr. Knecht herself is the ONLY orthodontist on staff. This is a decision that was made very deliberately since she will be the only orthodontist that you will receive treatment with.
Whenever it comes to choosing a care provider, you need to find someone with values and ideals that align with your own. Most importantly, you need to seek out a care provider whom you trust. This, more than anything, is Dr. Knecht’s goal with Knecht Orthodontics.
Dr. Kristen Knecht
Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Dr. Kristen Knecht attended Louisiana State University as a part of her undergraduate education and received her BS in Biology. She then went onto dental school in New Orleans.
Even from a very early age, Dr. Knecht knew she wanted to get into the medical field - she just wasn't always sure how. A large part of this likely has to do with the fact that her mother was a nurse, something that instilled a value for quality healthcare in her almost immediately.
Meet Our Team
By creating a sense of family among the employees at Knecht Orthodontics, Dr. Knecht hopes to bring every patient into that family as well. That's ultimately what she sees as one of the most important goals of all and it's one that she pledges to never stop working towards.
It doesn't matter who you are, what your background is or what orthodontic issues you're trying to take care of. You'll receive the same level of commitment that we'd show our own family members because, in many ways, that's exactly what you are.
