About the Dental Office of Hugh V. McKnight DDS

At the office of Dr. Hugh V. McKnight, we take the oral health of our patients very seriously. We care for our patients as if they were members of our own family and offer a range of affordable dental services to help them maintain healthy smiles for years to come.

A Baton Rouge Dental Team You Can Trust for the Whole Family

We work hard to provide a warm and welcoming environment for every patient. Dr. McKnight takes the time to discuss one-on-one with each patient about their dental options, and what would be best for their overall oral health.

Dr. McKnight holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in engineering. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in 1978. He is currently licensed in Louisiana, and was previously licensed in Mississippi, but retired his license. He was a clinical assistant professor at Louisiana State University for 26 years, and he is a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry and a Fellow in the International College of Dentists.
Through his active participation in many continuing education seminars, Dr. McKnight stays up-to-date with the latest advances in dentistry. He belongs to several professional organizations, including the American Dental Association, the National Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and is very active in his church.

We know going to the dentist is not high on anyone's list of favorite things to do. As a family dental office, our goal is to make your visit with us as positive and pleasant as possible, no matter your age.
Dr. McKnight and his staff form a team of dedicated dental professionals that provide patients with a range of services, including teeth whitening, veneers, fillings, and root canal therapy. In addition to their extensive training, each member was chosen for his or her attitude of excellence toward patient care.
We believe you will find that our office has a calming atmosphere, our staff is friendly and caring, and the dental services we provide are of exceptional quality.
