I pride myself on my conservative, yet comprehensive treatment philosophy in caring for my patients. I believe first and foremost that educating and informing my patients is the foundation of developing a trusting and long-term relationship that will lead to a lifetime of dental health.It is my goal to provide patients with the highest quality, affordable, up-to-date dental care. I am committed to continuing education and to providing my patients with state-of-the-art services.Dr. Knabe grew up in the greater Philadelphia area and headed to the Midwest when her family moved during high school. She earned her undergraduate degree from Aquinas College, a liberal arts college in Michigan offering great diversity and a well-rounded education. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from The University of Illinois in 1999. Dr. Knabe worked as an associate before going out on her own in 2003, wanting to provide an intimate practice that supports patients in an urban setting. In 2008, she opened a beautiful new space with brand-new equipment. Also, for seven years, she worked part time at the Northwestern Dental Center, located in Northwestern Hospital. Her time at Northwestern has given her a deep understanding of the link between dental and medical health.Running is one of her greatest passions outside of the office. She has completed eight marathons so far, with more to come. She is an avid Yogini, and loves being outside enjoying sports. She is also an avid reader, traveler, and cook. Although it's hard to figure where she finds the time, she also considers herself a movie buff.
