Meet the Team
Our team dedicated team is committed to providing comfort, guidance, and the best patient experience possible.
Our development team helps the community better understand the conditions that Dr. Klauer and his team diagnose and treat in children and adults. They work with this area’s medical and dental communities to ensure that we support their practices, and thus their patients, in the most beneficial way possible. The ultimate goal of this team is to bridge communication between the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre and those we serve with the goal of being a true wellness resource for our community.
Bridget hails from Monroe, MI, a small town on Lake Erie (that only the people who live there have heard of). After attending Saint Mary’s College, she discovered a knack for coordinating, working as a Sales Coordinator, a Marketing & Special Events Coordinator, and a Clinical Practice Marketing Coordinator before joining the TMJ team. She’s so good at coordinating she’d wow her co-workers with her coordinated ballroom dance steps at the company talent show. She embraces her creative side whenever…Learn More
CERTIFIED TMJ & SLEEP CLINICAL ASSISTANTS
Our clinical assistants have been thoroughly trained to assist in diagnosing and treating those seeking our help at the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre. Our patients will tell you that their empathetic nature, professional demeanor, and clinical expertise make them extensions of Dr. Klauer. Whether collecting data for new patients or tracking progress and executing the next steps, their goal is to ensure open communication, clinical excellence, and a smooth (and fun) therapeutic process for our patients.
Before moving to the area with her husband, Kelly had to Google how to spell “Mishawaka.” When she was a child, she wanted to be a teacher (which is why she gathered her dolls in front of her chalkboard full of lesson plans). The first warm and sunny day after a long winter brings her joy, as does her 10-year-old Shih Tzu, Scruff. She’d love to be an Airbnb host in fun cities around the U.S. (and would write house…Learn More
Lolo loves many things, including Saturday mornings (high-five to the weekend), Alaska (where she hopes to honeymoon one day), and babies (she’d invent a holiday just to celebrate them). Helping patients live without pain feeds her fire, while hanging out with her family and listening to the classics from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s feeds her soul. She can’t wait to be a mom in the future (where she’ll celebrate her own babies every day).… Learn More
Paige loves her adopted home state of Michigan so much she wants to own 50 acres of land up north (that she’d fill with family, Dobermans, and whiskey). She likes exploring the Upper Peninsula with her husband and dogs (Dobermans), kayaking on various Michigan lakes, and discovering new bars and restaurants (the closer to a lake, the better). Even though she has degrees in psychology and business (and a background in volleyball), she’s passionate about dental health and implores everyone…Learn More
Ethel gets her name — and her nickname, Ekie — from her grandmother, who also inspired her to fill her soul with gratitude. It’s probably why Ekie has had a lifelong dream of serving in the Peace Corps (and why she’d invent a holiday called Unreasonably Awesome Acts of Generosity and Kindness Day). She finds joy in watching her friends’ band perform, seeing her children grow into good, kind people, and visiting the Weeki Wachee River in Florida (which is…Learn More
Brooke hails from Niles, Michigan (where Muhammad Ali’s son Asaad went to school) and stayed in Michiana because she loves her career. If TMJ held a talent competition, Brooke would wow everyone with her organizational skills (like arranging her co-workers in alphabetical order). She adores her goldendoodles Bower and Cooper and likes visiting her favorite place, Zion National Park (but only after she’s traveled to national parks that start with A–Y).Learn More
Ariel is a South Bend native and Ivy Tech grad who lives by a wise adage: “Never let anyone treat you like regular glue, because you’re glitter glue.” If she could create her own holiday, she’d call it Self-Care Day (and send everyone to a spa for 24 hours). When she’s not imagining herself as a superhero with the gift of flight, she’s listening to Chris Isaak, loving on her goldendoodle Lady, and enjoying (teeth-friendly) snacks.… Learn More
