Knight Headshot_edit

Your President: Dr. Tim Knight

Tim Knight, your president-elect of the Fort Worth District Dental Society, is a Fort Worth resident of over 50 years. After graduating summa cum laude from Texas A&M as a President’s Endowed Scholar, he received his DDS degree from the University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston in 1981. His practice has slowly evolved into an adult restorative practice with an emphasis on occlusion. Tim has been a member of the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, ​Fort Worth District Dental Society, and Academy of General Dentistry since beginning his practice.

Tim is a firm believer of the value of constantly learning to keep his practice and staff energized and motivated. After going through the continuums at The Pankey Institute, he realized that what you can learn from your fellow participants can be as important as what you learn along with them. That is why he’s excited to be on the current board of the FWDDS and on the continuing education committee. Please touch base with him anytime about ideas for continuing education or any other activity you feel might be beneficial to FWDDS members. Don’t be surprised if he reaches out to you looking for suggestions! He would like for our society to provide valuable methods and tools to help our entire membership stay motivated and rewarded from dentistry.

Tim and his wife Kathleen have 5 grown children and 5 grandchildren. When not involved in dentistry, Tim can usually be found outdoors, in the water, on the water or by a fire pit with his family and friends.
