Frederick E. Knoll, DDS


Specialist in Prosthodontics

“My dedication to dental excellence began when I graduated from dental school in Venezuela. But it didn’t end there. I discovered that one way to be a great dentist is to keep on learning. That’s why I decided to continue with my studies at a Postgraduate level in the United States of America, where I spent three years at Harvard to become a Specialist, and an additional three years at NSU to obtain an American DMD degree in order to be able to practice in this country.”

“My specialty deals with the restoration and replacement of teeth and adjacent structures. With the esthetic, functional and artistic areas of dentistry, and with giving back to a patient the desire to smile again, to be able to chew, speak and function normally. Ever since I decided to become a dentist, I’ve had as a goal to serve my patients, my colleagues and the community, giving them my best, and the best quality of work possible.”
