My Visit to Big Lake's Dentist, Dr. Tommy Knox

Health and Wellnessby Dennis Garrett

I'd like to share an experience I recently had with Big Lake's Dentist, Dr. “Call Me Tommy” Knox.

The dental office is located in the Eastlake Mall, and is very clean and tidy. I received an appointment reminder by text and email, and showed up early in case I had any paperwork to complete.

One thing that is readily apparent is the professionalism that Dr. Knox and his talented assistant Shannon display. They both have a calming way that calms the patient. A visit to the Dentist or any white coat professional can be stressful, and they mitigate this. Even the background music from the waiting room was calming.

During the procedure, he told me what he was going to do, but also had some interesting stories. This helped to distract me from what suffering I would experience, which turned out to be little more than a minor discomfort. I told him it was less than a mild sting, tolerable. After the initial sting everything else was comfortable.

Dr. Knox has a broad and deep range of experiences, which helps to broaden and deepen his working knowledge and after several visits am glad that he's a part of our community.

If you are looking for a great experience with a very competent dentist look no further than Big Lake's Tommy Knox.

It's a very pleasant dental office, which means a lot because who wants to go to the dentist, rite? Dr. Knox is very professional and has a wit about him. His assistant Shannon is always cheerful and does a very fine job. I'm glad I went (saw the writeup here on TBLT), and would recommend them to anyone, except someone I don't like :)

I too had a very nice visit to Dr. Knox, and would recommend him to anyone of any age. The fees are very reasonable too, and he works with patients to bring the highest-quality professional dentistry to everyone.

Big Lake is a better community because of people like Tommy Knox. Call Shannon at 892KNOX (clever, isn't it) for an appointment.
