"Having lived in Mesquite for over 35 years, I have always relied on referrals for a good dentist. This time I wanted a second opinion, and googled BEST DENTIST in Mesquite. Dr. Byron McKnight came up. From my first visit I have not been disappointed. I received a FREE consultation for my dental needs and the Word for a trial in my life. Dr. McKnight has been hands on and very informative since the day I walked through the door and so has his wonderful team. I’ve had a cleaning and was very pleased with the gentleness of the hygienist. Yesterday was a treat. I was offered gas for the first time and decided, I no longer had to be a SUPER WOMAN, at my age. I had some old fillings removed and didn’t feel any pain. Gas is the way to go!!! I am a person of few words. Thank you for a wonderful experience and look forward to my next visit."" Debra B. Mesquite, TX

"I saw Dr. McKnight for the first time today & could not be more pleased , impressed or happy with my experience!!!! Each staff person was beyonf friendly & professional! Dr. McKnight spent more time with me than any dentist in the past. He took time to answer questions & to explain each part of the examination & to go over recommendations!!! Unless they close or move , I will never go anywhere else!!!" Merrill S.

"The office was beautiful, the staff was professional and welcoming and the dentist was incredible. I received thorough information with a clear and concise treatment plan that I understand. I couldn’t be happier with the service I received and will absolutely recommend them to anyone seeking a dentist that provides phenomenal care." Courtney P. Dallas, TX

“We first saw Dr. McKnight and his crew 18 years ago. We have been part of his 'family' ever since. The entire crew seems to go out of their way to make sure you not just properly cared for dentally, but perhaps more important, that you are part of their family. We called early this morning to see if they could fit us in for a problem check (my case) and a cleaning (my wife). We were in and out by one in the afternoon, well cared for a completely happy with the care we received. Thanks to Donna, Melissa, Anna and Dr. McKnight for taking care of us!" James M. Dallas, TX

“By far the best dentist I have ever been too, Dr. McKnight and his staff offer the highest quality of service and care available! Thank you Dr. McKnight and team for a fantastic smile!" Dale R. Dallas, TX

"Dr. McKnight and his staff are so professional! They explained each step of the procedure as it was performed and at the end of the visit Dr. McKnight asked if I had any questions. I have not experienced that with any other dentist. I really appreciate the exceptional care that he and his staff provides." Janet S. Dallas, TX

“If you are looking for the definition of what it means to be "the best," you need only schedule an appointment to enlist any of the many services provided by McKnight Dental. Dr. McKnight not only has made an art form of dental work, he operates from the heart. You sense this the moment he sits down with you and explains the details of what dental work may be necessary for you, and does it in terms you can understand. When the work is done, the follow-up is just as impressive as the work done in the office. Thank you, McKnight Dental! Robert R. Garland, TX

“I was so pleased with my appointment! Everyone was so nice. Sometimes a professional doesn't realize how important their staff is in the eyes of their patients. I felt relieved to have found a dentist that I trust. I now feel I have started getting things back to normal in my life. I honestly feel I am in the good hands. Thanks. Carol A. Dallas, TX

“I've been going to Dr. McKnight's office for many years. Every experience was perfection. The entire office is so nice and caring. Donna is such a joy at the front desk. I look forward to my cleaning with Millie every six months. I'm not surprised that Dr. McKnight has won so many awards. 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!” Mary W. Dallas, TX

“Dr. Byron McKnight and his staff are simply amazing in every way. They are warm, caring, attentive, fastidious, and exceptional. The office is pleasantly inviting and the staff greets you with open arms. Dr. McKnight is extremely skilled and innovative. After dealing with many years of snoring and doing a sleep study and using a CPAP machine to no avail, he suggested he fit me for a TAP appliance. Within weeks my appliance arrived and for years it has absolutely changed my life.” D.F. Garland, TX

“Dr. McKnight is the BEST dentist I've been to beyond a doubt. Honest. professional, conservative and genuinely helpful for the long term. His attention to details and calm reassuring manner is beyond words. He takes time to really know your concerns. Fully recommend!” Mesquite , TX

Giving Back & Helping Others

Being a great dentist is about much more than just helping nearby patients in the treatment chair. Our team strives to be active in not only our local community, but in underserved areas around the world as well! Dr. McKnight has regularly performed free care locally in his office, as well as working with Mission East Dallas (which he helped to establish over 20 years ago) and Mesquite Social Services for patients in need. He has performed dental work in Guatemala for more than 25 years. Currently he is Board President of Mission St. Luke which puts together teams of dental, medical, and construction teams as part of mission trips to San Lucas Tolliman. He also is on a national medical board that runs a hospital there. Many of the staff have joined in those efforts as well. We look forward to donating more of our time in the future to good causes.
