At Smile at the World Orthodontics in Temple, TX, Joshua M. Knowles, DDS, MSD and his dental team give patients the chance to obtain a beautiful smile by providing advanced orthodontic care.
Dr. Knowles first realized the impact orthodontics can have on a person’s life when he worked for his hometown orthodontist in high school. After graduation, he achieved a degree in biochemistry from Texas Christian University and continued his dental education at the University of Texas Dental Branch (DDS), including an additional two years, specialty-training in orthodontics.
He now lives in Belton with his high school sweetheart, Katherine, and their two sons. Dr. Knowles loves raising his family in Central Texas and considers it a privilege to care for his patients and become a part of their lives.
“Orthodontics is not a commodity that can be grabbed off of a shelf or ordered from the internet—it’s a service customized to each individual to their specific orthodontic needs,” he said. “Designing a smile for you and your family members will have life-changing effects.”
Smile at the World offers a range of orthodontic services including braces and Invisalign for children and adults. Dr. Knowles, who took over the practice in 2015, wants his treatments to not only improve a patient’s bite, but their life. He believes giving someone a new smile provides greater self-esteem, improved speech and pronunciation, the ability to eat and drink comfortably, and a way to maintain overall good health.
Dr. Knowles is board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics and wants to maintain continuity of care by being the only doctor in his practice. Along with his team of trained staff members, who have decades of dental experience, Dr. Knowles strives to stay on time so that patients receive the most effective treatments and are still able to maintain their own busy schedules.
“We believe that choosing your orthodontist is so much more than what you read or hear in advertisements,” he said. “We are part of our community and we serve those around us.”
