Park City’s favorite dentists.

Drs. Venssa & Michael Knight

Your caring Park City Utah dentists.

Dr. Michael Knight and his wife Dr. Venssa Knight, your caring and kind Park City Utah dentists, smiling and welcoming you to their practice.

Drs. Venssa (pronounced “Venessa”) and Michael Knight are both “Native Texans”, but have been caring for the residents of Park City, UT, for over 18 years. They met during their first year of training at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas in 1983 – and the rest of their personal & professional journey together has been nothing short of magical!

Dr. Venssa is recognized as one of the premier dentists in Utah, and she performs most of the restorative and cosmetic dentistry at Knight+Knight Dental. She received much of her advanced post-grad training in cosmetic dentistry and full mouth rejuvenation from one of the premier “dental gurus” in America today – Dr. David Hornbrook.

She is also the only dentist in Park City who is a “Sustaining Member” of the prestigious American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, having been a member since 2010. Many of the beautiful smiles found around Park City are proof of her exceptional clinical skills and commitment to excellence.

Dr. Mike is in the process of focusing on sleep apnea in our practice.  He also performs patient exams, oral cancer screenings, radiographic diagnosis using our cone beam technology, digital x-rays, and carivu images.  Cleanings, consultations, and treatment planning are also Dr. Mike’s specialty. Dr. Mike is also known on occasion to smoke some world championship BBQ and is the head “pit master” for our annual “Patient Appreciation BBQ” (which is one of the hottest tickets in Park City each Fall!).

Dr. V and Dr. Mike have 3 children, and when not busy with dentistry and everyday life, they enjoy spending time together hiking, traveling, and cooking. They are also active in their church and serving the community.

Kimberly Nixon

Registered Dental Hygienist

“With such a wonderful and established group of patients in our practice, I feel like I am catching up with an ‘old friend’ every time they come in for their appointment. Having a personal relationship with each of them makes for a comfortable, family-like environment – and a lot of fun – even at a cleaning appointment!”

Kimberly graduated from Ohio State University in 2010 and has been practicing dental hygiene ever since. When she is not working, she enjoys running, camping, and spending time with her family.

Number of Siblings: Only child.
Favorite Vacation: Warm sunny beach.

Lexi Steneck

Dental Assistant

“One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is seeing a smile on each of our patient’s faces – and knowing that I helped put it there! I truly love each and every one of our patients and serving them is a real passion for me. As Steve Jobs once said, ‘The only way to do great work is to love what you do.’ And I definitely love what I do.”

Lexi has been loving on our patients for six years with her contagious smile and laugh (not to mention her Polynesian charm and hospitality). She is quick to make our family of patients feel right at home at each visit! In her spare time, Lexi can be found on the golf course or cheering on the University of Utah football team with her husband, Scott.

I genuinely care about our patients’ needs and strive to create a warm and positive experience for our patients. I feel blessed to be here and to work with such an amazing, talented team!”

It has been a pleasure to get to serve our patients, meet their needs, and best of all celebrate their successes!”

Crystal is our “Director of Wonderful”… She wears a lot of “hats” in our practice – and she wears them well! If you are needing just a little “extra” help with almost anything here at Knight+Knight Dental, Crystal is the one who can make it happen.

Outside of work, Crystal loves spending time with her husband and three children on their farm in Summit County. When she’s not feeding the children, chickens, horses, or cows, she enjoys sewing and baking something to satisfy her sweet tooth. Rumor has it she is an avid runner as well!
