Dr. Eric Klein practices general family dentistry as well as cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry. He finished his undergraduate studies from Purdue University in 1993 and his graduate studies from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in 1999.

While growing his practice into the success it is today, he completed his post-graduate training at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental studies in Nevada. Dr. Klein has obtained a LVI Fellowship (LVIF) which requires completing seven core programs and passing the LVI Fellowship written exam. Currently there are less than 500 LVI Fellows in the world. While at the institute, he and his staff underwent intensive training including completing cases on patients under the direction of some of the best teachers in cosmetic dentistry. Besides learning how to do the very best in cosmetic dentistry from LVI, Dr. Klein also obtained extensive training in “TMJ problems” and neuromuscular dentistry. Neuromuscular dentistry can help relieve many painful problems from migraine headaches, jaw pain & noise, ringing in the ears, vertigo, and neck and shoulder pain just to name a few. Dr. Klein is one of the few dentists from the area that has completed a program that teaches these skills. His commitment to excellence is emphasized by undergoing this training to provide patients with only the best restorations and care possible. By undergoing this training, he has achieved the clinical ability that few dentist in the country are even aware exists.

Dr. Klein currently holds a Fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) as well. This fellowship requires over 500 hours of coursework and passing a comprehensive written exam. This achievement marks a significant milestone in his career, because the award demonstrates his long-term commitment to going above and beyond continuing education requirements to provide his patients with the most up-to-date treatment options and superior care.
