Dr. Robert KnudsonEnvisia Team | Bellingham Dentist | Envisia

Robert L Knudson DDS spent his early years in Los Altos, California and Lake Tahoe, Nevada where his father, also a dentist, practiced until 1989. Growing up, Dr. Bob was influenced by his father’s sense of professionalism and the honest concern he saw his dad show for his patients. He and his wife, Rose, have two daughters, Kelsey and Madeline, and he enjoys tending his grapes and making fine wine.

Graduating from the University of Washington School of Dentistry in 1983, Dr. Knudson received postgraduate training in orthodontics from the United States Dental Institute and continues to keep up to date on state-of-the-art dental techniques by regularly attending hands-on clinical training courses with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Las Vegas Institute, and the California Center for Advanced Dental Studies.

Dr. Knudson helped establish the Give Back A Smile program here in Washington to assist victims of domestic violence.  This provides them with the reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry needed to restore their smile. Qualified participants receive care at no cost.

In cooperation with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Dr. Knudson provides new smiles to qualified applicants who have been dentally disfigured as a result of domestic violence. If you would like more information about this program, please click_here to visit the “Give Back A Smile” web site.  We would very much like to speak to your group, organization, or church about this program. Please call 1-888-290-9937 toll-free.
