Gary Klein, DDS, MS – Vernon Hills Orthodontist and Gurnee Orthodontist

Dr. Gary Klein

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. Gary 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 American Board of Orthodontics 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 Dr. Klein isn’t watching or listening to his beloved Cubs, he and his wife Nancy (also a practicing Dentist) spend time with their daughters and sons-in-law, Julie and Spencer, Jamie and Omer, and their four grandchildren. 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. The Kleins have 2 boys, Jackson, a waterdog with a whole lot of energy and sharp teeth, and Henry, a perfect brother to Jackson.

Hobbies: White water rafting, wood turning, photography and alpine skiing.

If I were a kid again I’d: Play Centerfield for the Chicago Cubs.
