|Gary T. Klein, DDS, MS
| Dr. Klein - Vernon Hills Orthodontist and Gurnee Orthodontist
A Chicagoland native, Dr. Gary T. Klein is first and foremost a Cubs fanatic, and a loyal life-long member of the Chicago Cubs Die-Hard Fan Club. Other aspects of his childhood pale in comparison to his love for the Cubbies.
Dr. Klein is a 1981 honors graduate of University of Michigan and received
his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Loyola University School of Dentistry in 1985,
where he graduated at the top of his class. He continued his specialty education
in orthodontics at Loyola, earning his Certificate in Orthodontics in 1987 and
his Masters in Oral Biology in 1991. In 1997, Dr. Klein achieved Diplomate status
in the orthodontic community and is a member of the College of Diplomates. Dr.
Klein loves that as an orthodontist, he gets to work with kids every day.
When he’s not glued to watching or listening to his beloved Cubs, Dr. Klein
and his wife Nancy (also a practicing Dentist) spend time with their daughters,
Julie, an active member of Teach for America, and Jamie, a University of Michigan
student. They most enjoy going on family camping trips to visit America’s
great National Parks. Dr. Klein loves barbecue ribs, and after all these years
is still moved by the beauty of Lake Shore Drive and the Waterfront of Chicago.
Recently, the Kleins have added a new member of the family, Jackson, a waterdog
with a whole lot of energy and sharp teeth!
