As a lifelong resident of Granger, IN, Dr. Klauer has strong ties to the Michiana community. After attending grade school at Christ the King and going on to Marian High school, Dr. Klauer chose to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Notre Dame. There, he earned a Monogram letter as a member of the varsity golf team and proudly contributed to multiple Big East Championship wins.
Upon graduating from Notre Dame, Dr. Klauer chose to complete his four years of training at The Ohio State University, earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS). In 2013, Dr. Klauer chose to limit his practice to treating patients with craniofacial pain, TMD and sleep disorders due to the overwhelming need within the community. As he learned to identify the origin of patients’ pain and sleep problems, it became increasingly clear that he could drastically impact their lives now and in the future.
To that end, Dr. Klauer has completed nearly 2 years of post-graduate training and over 1,500 hours of continuing education in Craniofacial Pain, TMD, and Sleep Medicine. He is Board Certified with the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine, American Board of Craniofacial Pain and the American Board of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine. He is Diplomate Eligible with the American Board of Orofacial Pain and he is the only doctor in 100-mile radius that carries these 3 board credentials.
Today, Dr. Klauer enjoys educating patients and giving them the tools to live healthier lives independent of medications and “band-aid” fixes. He regularly attends cutting-edge courses that further advance his clinical skills so as to continuously improve for the benefit of his patients. In his personal time, Dr. Klauer spends as much time as possible with his wife and three young children. He enjoys running and skiing, and finds pleasure in mostly any outdoor activity.
