Having recently moved to the Dallas area, I’m glad that I found this place. It’s very convenient that they accommodate patients after 6pm. All the ladies were friendly and wonderful to talk to. I had a deep cleaning done and Dr. Askins explained the procedure really well and was quite reassuring. I’m excited to have my teeth whitened here on my next visit!

I just had my first visit at Knox Village Dentistry & Orthodontics and it was nothing short of amazing. First and foremost, due to a family emergency I had to cancel my first appointment day of and the team was super helpful, flexible, and patient with finding a new time that works for me. Secondly, during my appointment, the Knox Village team was super helpful with identifying my needs and pain points and was able to complete all 4 of my cavities and cleaning the same day. Thank you Knox Team!

I went there for the first time January 24th 2018. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Dr. A was awesome and just so nice. It has been quite awhile, since I have been to a dentist office where I was treated as a true guest/client. They made me feel right at home and I knew I had found my new Dentist Office. I will be going back to have more work done. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new Dental Group!!!!

I have been to this office 3 times with family members, and each time am more and more impressed by the staff and Dr. Askins. The staff is very kind, thoughtful and considerate. They go out of their way to help with understanding insurance coverage and copays- up front and honest. They run a timely, efficient clinic. The assistant gathers x-rays and intake information, prepares for the doctor encounter. Dr. Askins explained and showed me the issues with my teeth- loved having the X-rays displayed for my viewing as he explained what he found. Again, very honest and forthright. Will keep bringing family members here. Highly recommend without hesitation.

I have been coming to Knox Village Dentistry for about two years now. After moving from California it was hard to find a new dentist that I trusted. Dr. Askins and his staff are truly outstanding! They are professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and very warm and welcoming. Also, their new location is beautiful!

My experience at Knox Village dentistry has always been positive. I have been coming here for the past year and I haven’t had any issue. My first visit went smooth and they handled a filling that came off- i was so worried but the team handled it great and always in a nice professional manner. The office is always clean and the ambiance relaxing and modern- the new office is AWESOME! You have the option to watch Netflix as you wait for your appointment to be done. The people that work in the office are very respectful and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a dentist. Great bedside manners and friendly staff made cleaning visits a breeze.

I am SO impressed with our visit. Not only was Dr. Askins educating and helpful he was also patient. Helping my younger son to stay comfortable. He explained and answered anything and everything without any issues as some providers can feel put out or they rush through. His staff is great and I felt comfortable with there attentiveness. I’m so pleased, especially since I just found him through researching online. I can’t wait to recommend him.

I have been a patient of Dr. Askins for over 4 years. It is paramount to find people that treat patients with patience and answer questions as well as connect with you in a vulnerable situation (I recently shattered a front tooth). Plus, the entire team is kind and thoughtful. If, you ever have to wait a bit during your appointment, please know that Askins will serve you well next. He is a perfectionist.

Everyone here was so nice. I just left my first visit. They weren’t pushy about financial stuff for treatments I couldn’t afford this trip. My deep cleaning was awesome (I usually hate because I have sensitive teeth). The hygienist, Matt, was super down to earth and informative. He was gentle and thoughtful throughout the experience. Dr. Askins was warm and informative and seemed to really care about the time he spent with each patient. Front desk was welcoming and explained my insurance costs clearly and effectively. Excited to have a new dentist I can look forward to coming to and trust that my health is priority before profits.

I just had an appointment yesterday. I chose this office after a deep search for other dentist in the Dallas area. The reviews were really good. So I decided to give this place a shot. I just moved here and haven’t gone to the dentist in years. It was a little confusing to find, but once I was in the office the staff was exceptional! Dr. Adkins was very knowledgeable and very professional. It’s hard to find dentist who don’t mess up your billing or don’t try to rip you off. But I fully put my trust into this office. Also, the prices are very reasonable. I will be staying here. THANK YOU

Sara H. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have had a wonderful experience here and will come back again and again! The process is very smooth. The staff is friendly, kind and professional! Aida is a delight to work with. Dr Askins does absolute wonders! He is fantastic at what he does. He is knowledgeable and a real perfectionist. Highly recommend this practice!

Olivia H. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have PTSD and I was very nervous went here for an exam and xray. The difference between this place and any other dentist I’ve been to is immeasurable. If you go here you can forget Anything bad about going to the dentist. Each of the people working here are considerate and personal. I was given a incredibly better procedure price than i was expecting. I’m happy and excited to say I have finally found a dentist who I am not afraid of. Cheers to clean teeth!

Well I am out of state, and they got me right in.They explained what needs to happen down to the picture book.He is very concerned about my health, wont do a procedure until infection is totally gone.Bent over leaps and bounds to see I’m in no pain as well…Overall, I highly recommend this dentistry.

I’m not a huge fan of dentists and have struggled with finding a new one I like and trust. I had my first visit with Dr. Askins and feel very good about my choice! I trust his recommendations and he answered my questions and eased my concerns. PLUS everyone in his office were very nice.

Rocio M (Source: Zocdoc)


It was great. I had pain over the weekend on a tooth and I got an appointment right away on Tuesday, got a root canal done and the infection taken care of almost with no pain. It is my third root canal and I know how painful it can be. Highly recommended!

I had an overall great experience here. Dr Askins and the rest of the staff were so kind and helpful and professional. They did an excellent job too! They made sure I was comfortable and I was. I got my teeth whitened and I walked out feeling so confident! It is convenient to have dental and orthodontist in the same place.

Nicole W. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


So I had a tooth ache today and I wasn’t very happy about it. I called several dental offices and no one answered the phone. I called Knov Village Denistry and spoke to Aide at 3:21 pm. She said they could see me at 3:30 and they did. I was greeted with great smiles and great customer service. Dr. Derrick Adkins was awesome and was able to resolve my problems immediately. Thanks for a fantastic visit.

I’ve been going to Knox Village Dentistry for about 5 years. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. I changed my appointments several times and they were very understanding. They offer a great deal on teeth whitening. There’s no pressure to buy products or services. I definitely recommend this dentist!

A while ago I was looking for a dental office…I was referred to several places. I decided to check out Knox Village Dentistry, and they did not disappoint. Their staff is amazing! I had an amazing experience with every person in the office. They called me back at my exact appointment time. I’m so glad I chose them. I will be looking forward to my routine cleanings!

I have been searching for the perfect dentist since moving to Dallas and I would absolutely recommend Knox Village Dentistry! I am extremely impressed with my experience here! The staff is so welcoming and knowledgeable and the dentist really took the time to address my concerns, explained every detail and got the issue taken care of the same day!

Always look forward to my visits, like today’s appointment, I’ve been going here for over a year now and it’s been great. Dr. Askins is gentle, thorough, and very informative. Always have fun talking to the hygienist. They never try to sell me anything I don’t need. For example, before coming here, I visited another location around the Uptown area, they wanted me to get a crown, where the tooth wasn’t causing any problems. Went to see Dr. Askins for a second opinion, advise me I don’t need it, placed me on a dental plan and I couldn’t be more appreciative. Saved me a lot of $$$ and my teeth and gum are as healthy if not more healthy than before. The entire staff are really friendly. Don’t over look this establishment!!

So…after his visit, my husband raved about Knox Village Dentistry. I still resisted going because I’ve had horrible experiences at other dentist’s offices that left me with dentist-phobia. After going the first time, I was cured! The doctor was fantastic and EVERYONE was knowledgeable and friendly. THANKS KNOX VILLAGE DENTISTRY.

Sarah B. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone at Knox Village Dentistry is so wonderful!! Shout out to all the pretty girls at the front desk. They always remember my name and what I’m doing with my life…which shows that they really care about you and your dental health. Dr. Askins is also an amazing dentist. When I started coming my teeth were wrecked and he’s gotten them into tip top shape. Don’t think twice about getting your teeth needs taken care of here!!

Stephanie C. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


Came here for a dental exam and cleaning a couple of weeks ago, had a great experience! Ended up scheduling a teeth whitening appointment today and had amazing results with their “10minute whitening” service. Staff have been so pleasant and attentative- always greeting you with a smile and hello. Thank you Knox village for making my dental experience wonderful, especially Angelica and Aide! Highly recommended! This place will definitely be my go to dentistry from now on.

I have to say… I have always HATED the dentist until NOW.Dr.Askins, office manager Justine and staff are AMAZING!Dr.Askins has convinced me that dentists aren’t evil and that I can truly have a pleasant, educational and inviting experience .HE IS THE BEST as well as the STAFF! I will happily WAIT to be seen .To the patient who left a bad review a few weeks ago… I apologized to the entire waiting area about my husband having a dental emergency .Everyone said that it was ok.I am sorry you felt otherwise and respect your decision not to return but the care that was given to my husband was immeasurable and this office deserves a sky full of stars review!!! #iloveknoxvillagedentistry

I was having pain in my teeth and was very nervous about coming to the dentist but the assistants, hygentist and the doctor made sure i was comfortable before starting treatment. They walked me through in detail and made sure I knew exaxtly what was going to be done. I really appreicate their understanding and care they provided to me.

Sarah M. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough good things about this practice. It could be the Nitrous they pumped me with today, but I doubt it. I was here last week for a cleaning, and while the wait was a bit lengthy, the cleaning was fast, and yet, they were thorough and got me out of there just when I needed. Today, I had four fillings done, and they were so courteous and gentle! I’m a big wussy at the dentist, but they gave me some gas which made me comfortable. The doctor walked me through everything he was doing, and he always made sure I was feeling good (I was definitely was with the GAS!) they have great pricing specials regardless of insurance, too.

I went for the first time today and almost accidentally. I thought i had scheduled somewhere else. Anyway i have a deep phobia of dentists, stemming from child and young adulthood dentist experiences, without any sedation. I have serious dental issues, including severe periodontal disease. I was anxious to say the least, but this was probably my first ‘positive’ dentist experience ever. I am 57. I was given all the information bad news as it was, and several options to pay for all the procedures. I wish i could afford to do all the work at once, but that is not an option. Anyway, I once again have some hope to save some of my teeth for a few more years, and thank Dr. Askins, the hygenist who was super nice, and the person in charge of book keeping. They all took their time, and made me feel at ease. Dr. Askins made some awesome ‘german’ jokes, since that is where I am from. The deep cleaning, which was done right after the evaluation went well, and I did not feel any pain, also a first. I got some discounts as well, and think i may be able to have a decent ‘mouth’ by next September. Check them out, you will not be disappointed.

I have enjoyed my experience with Knox Village, everyone is so welcoming. Have had bad experience with other previous dentist, and here it was above my expectations. From first email to now being a patient, and my son as well. Thanks for the best treatment. Highly recommend.

All of the staff were very friendly and attentive, overall a positive environment. Some of the assistants were learning but the X-rays etc didn’t take too long. The hygienist wasn’t there so they were a little behind but Dr. Askins was great, very friendly and answered all of my questions honestly and thoroughly, taking the time to explain causes and effects of certain symptoms. I’m picky when it comes to doctors but the office and dentist were great, will definitely book again for my next checkup!
