Love Your Smile With Personalized Dental Care in Harker Heights, TX
Knights Family Dentistry delivers efficient care while working to foster meaningful relationships with our patients of all ages.

We’ve taken great care to design our spacious office with you in mind so that all of our patients, from kids to seniors, feel welcome. We offer a family-focused, relaxing environment and contemporary decor. Our younger patients can relax in the kids’ room, where they can play with toys and enjoy complimentary refreshments and fun prizes.

We provide total dental care including, tooth-colored crowns, bridges, and fillings, gum disease treatment, and extractions, among other treatments. We also pride ourselves in offering efficient emergency treatment and same-day appointments.

We use state-of-the-art equipment to offer the latest in dental technology and treatments, such as digital X-rays, ultrasonic scalers for teeth cleaning, ClearCorrect for orthodontic treatment without braces, and an intraoral camera (which we use to give you a closer look at your dental health condition).

We accept all PPO insurance plans as well as DentaQuest, MCNA, and CHIP. If you are not sure whether your health plan covers the procedure you need, our staff would be happy to contact your provider to confirm your benefits. We also have payment plans available for certain procedures (for example, crowns, nightguards, and dentures), and introductory offers for new patients and patients without insurance.

Meet Dr. Alan Katende

Dr. Alan Katende was born in Ardsley, NY, and has lived in Missouri, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. He is proud to call Harker Heights his home.

He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Washington University in St. Louis, and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Howard University College of Dentistry in Washington, D.C. Dr. Katende received advanced training in general dentistry at Bronx Lebanon Hospital and completed an oral and maxillofacial surgery fellowship at Harlem Hospital, both in New York. To keep up with advancements in his field, Dr. Katende continues to take continuing education courses in implants, orthodontics, and oral surgery.

Dr. Katende’s philosophy and approach to dentistry, and family dentistry in particular, includes focusing on preventive dentistry. He believes that fluoride treatment combined with sealants — as well as dietary counseling at a young age — can prevent costly dental treatment down the road.

Dr. Katende loves playing sports and staying fit, and spending time with his family — his wife, Yasai, and their dog, Cairo. Dr. Katende is also passionate about music. He’s been playing piano and guitar since he was a child.

Plan Your First Visit with Dr. Katende

At Knights Family Dentistry, we value our patients’ time. Minimizing the number of visits to complete any necessary treatment is important to our practice. When more invasive treatment is needed, we strive to get it done the same day or in as few appointments as possible. You also won’t have to wait long between the time you schedule your visit and your actual appointment.

Dr. Alan Katende and Knights Family Dentistry look forward to being your go-to family dentistry practice for years to come. Please contact us anytime with questions or to make an appointment for your first visit.
