Dr. Murray Knebel

I grew up in Edmonton and moved to Calgary after earning my Dental Degree from the University of Alberta in 1981. The mountains fueled my desire to move to Calgary as well as an international airport that would give me access to dental and leadership courses all over the world. (I love to learn!)

Although dentists don’t have a reputation for being fun, I can guarantee that you will be smiling at your appointment. The values that guide me and my team are HEALTH, GROWTH, and JOY, and guests notice and appreciate our energy and enthusiasm at every visit.

Early in my career, I realized that I had a choice in how I interacted with patients. I could become a technician – a fixer of broken teeth, OR I could become a healer – a trusted advisor, committed to a deeper understanding of a person’s health care dynamic – including their family health history, financial considerations, challenges as well as health aspirations. Choosing the latter not only keeps me passionate about my career, but also led me into the field of Functional Dentistry, where we take a holistic and biocompatible approach to treatment, and observe the influence of your teeth and bite on the rest of your body. Patients often call me the ” Why Guy”, because my focus is to help you understand WHY things are healing or breaking down, and not just what I can do to “fix” the problem.

After receiving life-saving treatment for my own sleep apnea, I became increasingly interested in the role of airway obstruction on health, as well as early childhood development. Since then I have completed over 3000 hours (equivalent to a three-year postgraduate program) of continuing education, pursuing a deeper understanding of tongue-tie, airway obstruction, mouth breathing, and facial development as well as bedwetting and struggles with focus and attention

My unique areas of interest include:

  • Functional or biocompatible dentistry
  • Aesthetics and veneers
  • Headaches, TMJ and bite rehabilitation
  • Invisalign and Damon Braces
  • Tongue-tie and nursing problems in infants and young children

My primary intention is to build your trust because I believe that without trust and a personal connection, my service is simply a commodity. Unlike many corporate dental groups, where you may be seeing different hygienists, team members, and even doctors at each visit, we can ensure consistency of connection and care with our valued guests.

I came into this clinic today at 5:20 pm today after dealing with wild and what feels like unbearable pain in my back 2... wisdom teeth. Everyone single person in this clinic was professional, BEYOND KIND and just so down to earth.They "closed" at 6 pm tonight for the Christmas Holidays but I still treated me until 6:30 PM. Not once did I feel rushed to leave, or even feel like they rushed through the appointment. I have found a new dentist for years to come. Thank you so much to everyone in that clinic, I am very impressed and will be recommending anyone/everyone to this clinic.read more

Had a difficult crown put in. Dr Sorensen and team were very sensitive to my comfort. There was a lot of sensitivity to... hot and cold which they addressed quickly. As I waited for the permanent the next week there was hardly any pain! It slipped in without freezing and was perfect!read more

I’ve been a patient at Dr. Sorensen’s dental practice for 8+ years. I enjoy when I have an appointment because the team... is efficient and prompt; meaning no added time when most don’t enjoy being at the dentist. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and honest. Recently, when getting scaling done, they ensured that I was billed for the accurate units and time, which was very impressive. Many places would just round up and over charge, but the team was honest and up front which saved me some $$ when I’m not working and without benefits. Courtney at the front desk is wonderful and the whole team are well versed in all needs and areas. Dr Sorensen is a great dentist.read more
