We asked Dr. Knurek a few questions so you can get to know him a little better!

What led you to seek a career in dentistry?

Since I can remember I have always loved the sciences and understanding how/why things work. I also have a passion for working with my hands and the dental field allowed me to do just that!

What memberships are you currently involved in?

I am a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, and the Chicago Dental Society.

How have you improved your expertise in dentistry?

I am passionate about continual education and keeping up with the trends in dentistry. I am a learner at heart and am always looking for ways to improve my craft to provide the best dental care I can for the patients I love!

What other awesome and interesting things could you share about yourself?

If I am not in the office you can find me in one of two places… first being on the golf course. There is nothing like getting out in the sun and playing a round or two! The second place you can find me would be in the kitchen. I often find myself researching new recipes to try and to improve my cooking. If I am not on the links or the kitchen, you will probably find me outside exploring all that West Michigan has to offer!
