Your care starts with a comprehensive exam and consultation
When you arrive for your new patient exam, you will first be greeted by our friendly receptionist. If you have not already filled out your new patient questionnaire, she will provide you with the necessary forms to fill out.
You will meet our caring staff as we take the necessary X-rays, and in many cases, a 3D cone beam scan that will allow Dr. Knorr to view all of your oral structures in a full 360-degree view.
After discussing your dental goals and concerns, Dr. Knorr will conduct a thorough oral examination and review your treatment plan with you.
Forever Smiles is known for our warm, friendly and competent care. Dr. Knorr and our staff have many ways to make your visits as comfortable as possible. Dr. Knorr always takes the time to explain your treatment and answer any questions so you are well informed at all times.
We provide water, coffee and soft drinks for your refreshment. Blankets are available and you can watch TV or listen to music with headphones.
Relax With Sedation Dentistry
We also offer oral or IV sedation for patients who are anxious or fearful regarding dental treatment or for longer procedures. Sedation allows you to relax or sleep during your dental treatment.
Gum Disease Treatment
We provide comprehensive and thorough gum disease diagnosis and treatment. We treat this using ultrasonic scalers to clean above and below the gumline. The scalers also smooth the tooth roots so bacteria cannot easily re-attach and the gums can heal. In some cases, we prescribe antibiotics to ensure the gum tissue fully heals.
Routine Check-Ups & Teeth Cleaning
Our goal is to keep your dental treatment to a minimum by helping you prevent problems from occurring in the first place. Routine checkups and thorough, yet gentle teeth cleaning by our experienced hygienists are the key.
When needed, Dr. Knorr uses bone grafting to restore lost bone so that dental implants can be stably placed. He is experienced at bone augmentation and grafting for dental implants, including socket preservation after a tooth is extracted.

Gentle Tooth & Wisdom Teeth Extractions
At Forever Smiles, we will do everything we can to help you preserve your healthy and natural teeth as long as possible. However, if you do need to get a tooth removed, Dr. Knorr is experienced in performing gentle tooth extractions. He explains the procedure ahead of time so that you know what to expect and he and his staff will keep you comfortable during the procedure.
Dr. Knorr will also gently extract wisdom teeth that may need to be removed to avoid overcrowding or damage to the jaw or surrounding teeth. Using the state-of-the-art cone beam 3D CT scanner allows Dr. Knorr to carefully plan your wisdom tooth extraction so that it is as gentle, precise and minimally invasive as possible.
Root Canal Therapy
We make sure that root canals are done quickly, efficiently and painlessly with one-visit root canal therapy, including placement of a high-quality, permanent crown using CEREC technology.
Headaches & Jaw Pain Treatment
An improperly functioning or misaligned jaw joint (TMJ) can cause chronic headaches and other types of pain.
TMJ problems can be caused by injuries, a poor bite, stress or by teeth clenching and grinding (such as during sleep). Dr. Knorr offers effective treatment to alleviate TMJ pain and permanently correct the bite problems causing it.
Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance Therapy
Sleep apnea is a condition in which a person's breathing pauses frequently during sleep, often without their knowledge. In most cases, sleep apnea can effectively be treated with the use of an oral appliance, a mouthguard-like device that keeps the airways open while the patient sleeps. Dr. Knorr is experienced in oral appliance therapy and has helped many patients improve their sleep and health, using the SomnoMed oral appliance.
