Dr. Ryan and Dr. Cindy Knight
Dr. Ryan Knight grew up in Grapevine and attended the University of North Texas. He earned his DMD from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry at Birmingham Medical Center in 1999. Dr. Cindy Knight was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1995. She earned her DDS degree in 1999 from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. Dr. Ryan and Dr. Cindy met at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio while completing two years of residency for advanced training in general dentistry.
Adventurous in spirit, the Knights moved to Alaska where they practiced dentistry for 13 years. They have twin daughters, Lyla and Juliette. The Knight family relocated four years ago. A desire to be closer to family and a longing for the Texas sunshine led them to call the Benbrook area home.
Lets summer, Drs. Ryan and Cindy Knight acquired ownership of Chisholm Trail Dental in Benbrook. The practice reopened with new leadership and a fresh start. The Chisholm Trail Dental team hopes to raise awareness of the vital connection between oral health and systematic health and the risk factors and signs of oral cancer.
Advice: The mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body. Oral infection, such as gum disease and abscessed teeth may not hurt. The bacteria that cause these infections are causal agents in heart attack and stroke and increase the risk for diabetes, low birth weight babies, pre-term delivery and Alzheimer’s disease. Oral cancer, also without symptoms until the later stages, can be devastating if not detected early. A thorough dental health examination and regular care mean more than just clean teeth!
Chisholm Trail Dental is unique in that nearly all procedures can be treated right here in the office. Working as a team, Dr. Ryan and Dr. Cindy combine their skills sets, in addition to the latest technology including 3D imaging and laser dentistry. This greatly reduces the need to refer our patients elsewhere for care. Dr. Ryan enjoys implant dentistry, “all-on-four” tooth replacement, oral surgery, and complex restorative reconstruction. For the greatest comfort, he also offers IV sedation in a private surgical suite. Dr. Cindy is most passionate about restorative dentistry, esthetic dentistry, smile designs, and caring for our pediatric patients.
The team at Chisholm Trail Dental is professional and enthusiastic about guiding patients toward optimal oral health. We truly are like a family and genuinely love working together! This has created an office environment that is not only high-tech but also calming, respectful and personal. Dr. Ryan and Dr. Cindy Knight are thrilled to practice in Benbrook because they enjoy serving the community in which they live and play. The Chisholm Trail Dental team loves taking care of friends and neighbors!
