Meet Dr. Debora Klein
Dr. Debora Klein earned her dental doctorate in 1981 from Northwestern University. She has been the primary practitioner and owner of Alpine Dental Practice since its inception. While Dr. Klein is a highly trained and experienced general dentist, she specializes in treating people with issues like bruxism, jaw pain, headaches and sleep apnea through the use of oral appliances. She is one of the few dentists in Illinois who specializes in these types of treatment and has attended extensive continuing education specifically related to these disorders.
Dr. Klein is the first woman in the state of Illinois to be board certified by both The American Academy of Craniofacial Pain and The American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. Her vast knowledge, outgoing personality and compassionate demeanor will make you feel at ease while in her care.
Our doctor’s priorities are patient comfort and satisfaction. The entire team at Alpine Dental looks forward to your visit and showing you the many ways in which personalized dental care can improve your life.
