We are excited to shine the spotlight on Dr. Sarah Knowles who joined our team at Smith Family Dentistry in April 2022. Dr. Knowles is an exceptional dentist who has continuously proved that she can provide you and your family with the high-quality, personalized care that you have come to know at Smith Family Dentistry. She alongside our existing team of talented doctors and wonderful dental hygienists will help ensure you receive the best care possible.
Dr. Knowles has an impressive background starting her educational career at the University of Iowa Dental School. She then continued her certification at the San Diego V.A Hospital where she completed her General Practice Residency. In addition to her academic accolades, Dr. Knowles is certified in Invisalign, Botox, and dermal fillers.
Dr. Knowles’ passion for dentistry can be seen in the strong bonds she makes not only with her patients but with members of her team. “This profession has given me the opportunity to blend science, art, and working with my hands but by far the greatest gifts are the relationships it provides,” she said. When she is not in the office providing her clients with the best care, Dr. Knowles enjoys reading and gardening as well as spending time with her husband and two sons. She and her family are big football fans as her husband is the defensive coordinator at Butler University. (Go Bulldogs!)
We are confident that the patients of Smith Family Dentistry will be in good hands with Dr. Knowles. We encourage you to get to know her if you haven’t had a chance to already. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 1(317) 578-1933.
