Dr. Klauer's Family

Dr. Daniel Klauer, DDS

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 four young children. He enjoys running and skiing, and finds pleasure in mostly any outdoor activity.

Upon meeting Dr. Klauer, you will find yourself immediately comforted by his welcoming smile, his compassion for his patients and his commitment to providing them with the highest quality of care. If you have any questions or would like to contact Dr. Klauer, please call our office at 574-203-5599 or email him at DrKlauer@TMJSleepIndiana.com.

Solutions for TMD and Sleep Apnea
By Daniel Klauer, DDS

With a passion for educating patients and giving them the tools to live healthier lives independent of medications and “band-aid” fixes, Dr. Klauer recently authored, Achieve Your Victory: Solutions for TMD and Sleep Apnea to reach a wider audience.

His goal for readers is the same as it is for his patients: improve the lives of those suffering from TMD/TMJ and sleep apnea symptoms. Dr. Klauer outlines everything you need to know about what you’re experiencing, why you’re experiencing it, and how to overcome it.

With a family tree full of medical professionals, Dr. Daniel Klauer, DDS, was destined to care for patients. His ultimate decision to focus on patients with craniofacial pain, TMD, and sleep disorders was largely due to the overwhelming need within his community and throughout the country.

Like most dentists, Dr. Klauer began his career as a drill and fill dentist.  While he enjoyed the work, he felt there was a missing piece of the puzzle.  Through growing interest and continued education, Dr. Klauer started concentrating on treating the root cause of pain versus the symptoms.  As a result, his practice evolved to focus on total wellness—an approach that takes a whole-body perspective on health rather than compartmentalizing medical issues within individual body systems.

Today, his priority is restoring the health and comfort of patients who are suffering due to pain in the mouth, jaw, and face. Often problems in these parts of the body come from within those structures or may be brought on by pain or misalignment in other parts of the body. Problems in the head, neck, or mouth negatively affect breathing and sleep, which then leads to
additional health problems.

Dr. Klauer looks not only within his own area of practice, but also at the interrelationships between his specialty and other areas of medicine for the best solution. It’s this form of care that has treated many patients suffering from craniofacial pain, TMD, headaches, poor sleep, or problems that previously couldn’t be solved. He’s often referred to as “the doctor that never gives up on his patients.”

With a desire to share his proven methodology with others, Dr. Klauer authored his recent book, Achieve Your Victory: Solutions for TMD and Sleep Apnea. He has a passion for helping patients take back their health and loves to share his message and expertise to create a roadmap back to comfort.
