Dr. Quentin Knutson

Quentin Knutson DDS

Dr. Quentin Knutson joined the Apple Tree Dental team in mid-2021 after finishing both dental school and a pediatric residency at the University of Minnesota.

He credits his mom, a dental assistant, for getting him interested in dentistry.  One challenge that he loves is winning over apprehensive patients and watching them overcome their fears.  Working with kids particularly brightens his day.  He loves meeting families and helping them achieve oral health.  And, he sees treating children and patients with disabilities as a great responsibility and privilege.

Dr. Knutson is dedicated to patient-centered care and family-centered care, and has a strong interest in sedation dentistry.  He belongs to a variety of groups, including AAPD, AADMD, SCDA, MDA, ADA, and MAPD, as well as the PACER Medical Advisory Board, and he is part of the 2018-2019 cohort of MN LEND fellows.  In the past, he has volunteered with Special Smiles, Unified Sports, and Mission Save a Smile.

Originally from Brooklyn Park, Dr. Knutson now lives in Maple Grove with his wife, two young children, and three pets.  He loves being outdoors, and is a vocal musician as well as a trombone player.  He’s also a big Minnesota sports fan, with baseball being the favorite!
