Hockey Players Make Better Dentists!

Cosmetic dentist, Doctor Mark A Knollman, DDS in Asheville North Carolina. Hockey players do make better dentists – a little known fact, but true. At age 17, my face slammed to the ice. In disbelief, I watched my front tooth (root and all) spin across the ice. I picked it up and instinctively placed it back in the socket. A dentist was born!

In the following years, I spent many hours in a dental chair. By age 22, I had seen every dental specialist. Although, my experiences were not particularly enjoyable, I wasn’t afraid either. I knew that was not the norm and gradually became interested in my “home away from home”. To this day, I never forget what it’s like to be a patient.

I began my dental education at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. By this time, I had come to the harsh realization that the St. Louis Blues would not be inviting me to their training camp, and I would have to get a “real job”. Now I find myself in a beautiful office with a great view of the mountains. Each day is spent with a wonderful staff taking care of people that are more like friends than patients. I’m glad I made the right career choice.

Dental education never ends. I have been blessed to rub elbows with some of the brightest of our profession. My practice style has been honed at two prestigious centers for advanced dental education: The Pankey Institute and The Dawson Academy.
