Dr. Mark Knoefel was born in St. Bruno, Quebec, a suburb of Montreal. He obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from McGill University in 1995. The year 1996 saw him moving to Edmonton to obtain his Master of Science degree in Orthodontics at the University of Alberta, which he completed in the spring of 1999.
His vision for Oasis Orthodontics is to provide the safest, most effective and efficient orthodontic treatment available today. Together with his team, he accomplishes this objective by performing a thorough diagnosis, creating a customized, detailed treatment plan for each patient, and ensuring that progress check points occur regularly throughout treatment. Dr. Knoefel uses highly accurate 3D virtual simulations not only to develop his treatment plans, but also to better explain objectives of treatment to his patients, and educate them throughout their orthodontic experience.
Dr Knoefel’s decision making is firmly grounded in applying current scientific evidence with his wealth of clinical experience that he has accumulated over the past 19 years of caring for the patient community in Edmonton, St. Albert, Sherwood Park and surrounding areas.
He has a passion for studying languages, as he can speak, read and write English, French and German fluently and has taken courses in Spanish, Japanese and Swedish. He enjoys greeting patients in their native language- and he loves being taught phrases in new languages. In his spare time, with his wife Line, they raise their three boys and one beautiful girl. They are always on the go with extracurricular activities with their children.
