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.

Very thorough evaluation of my son. The technician had him do all the measurements with a game, which was great for a 6 year old. You can tell they have worked with many other children and know how to get what they need in an engaging way. I was very impressed.read more

The staff is AMAZING. So supportive and positive, it’s clear everyone enjoys what they do and have helped me tremendously. Dr. Klauer has uncovered a lot of underlying problems for symptoms I didn’t realize could be caused by my clenching and grinding. I feel better and better every day and continue to be fully supported by the staff during my treatment. They even bring me hot tea during my visit! Aesthetically pleasing facility, and sometimes you get to wear some sweet looking goggles. 😄 10/10 would recommend.read more

When I started with Dr Klauer I couldn't open my mouth wide enough to take a bite of a sandwich. I had constant jaw pain and always thought I had an ear infection. I had instant relief while the Dr was making the impressions for my mouth piece. I told him, and he gave me the 2 pink forms to use until my mouth pieces were finished! Worth every penny!read more

Doctor Klauer’s staff was amazing. I came in with horrendous pain and left feeling almost normal again! The staff was compassionate and well trained. Sally was very thorough and her chair side care was gentle and reassuring. Everyone was extremely professional. A few days later, when (after looking again at the imaging that was taken in the office) Sally spotted something that resembled a fracture in one of my teeth that the referring dentist didn’t see on the panoramic x-rays that were taken in his office prior to referring me to The TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centere. She brought it to my quick attention and advised me to call her immediately if I am feeling any additional pain. This only proves how skilled their staff is!! I hadn’t thought TMJ was even a real condition until I experienced my pain and was diagnosed. The treatment plan that was designed for me is sensible and I look forward to learning how to relax and not store built up tension. I understand it will be a process but I believe that I am in very good hands!M.KretchmerGranger, INread more

I was just in Dr. Klauer’s office for my yearly follow-up. Dr. Klauer and staff are so thorough and friendly it makes the appointment so easy and seamless. He always makes me feel like I am the only patient he has. I appreciate his attention to detail and his expertise on head and neck disorders. TMJ, ear, sinus, and especially airway problems. We are very fortunate to have him in our professional community. Thanks Dr. Klauer!!Kevin T Campbell D.D.S.read more

Dr. Klauer is not only a colleague of mine, but a mentor in the field of Craniofacial Dental Sleep Medicine. His relentless dedication and thoroughness in continuing education and patient centered therapies are what set him apart from just about any other dentist/doctor I've ever met. That's saying a lot in that my father is a fantastic dentist as well. He has helped treat my condition and I have sent my own family members to him and would do so again.read more
