Dr. Klemann has been in the dental field since 2006, which is when she began her training to become a dental hygienist. It didn’t take her long to realize that she wanted more from her career, so she began pursuing dental school. She graduated from the Oregon Health & Science University School of Dentistry as a National Dental Honor Society member. After that, she chose to complete a general practice residency at the VA Medical Center in Portland, Oregon.
Throughout her training, Dr. Klemann honed her dental and surgical skills and became proficient in exodontia, fixed and removable prosthodontics, endodontics, and the management of very medically compromised patients. She also expanded her horizons to placing dental implants.
Dr. Klemann is an extremely productive practitioner. She loves to take continuing education coursework and considers herself a lifelong learner. Over the last few years, she has worked in several private practice settings and an emergency clinic. Recently, she purchased her practice, Distinctive Dentistry, and is excited to provide dental care to the residents of Clackamas and the surrounding communities. In Dr. Klemann practice, she takes a whole-body approach to dental care and advises her patients that simple oral health improvements can enhance their overall health.
When Dr. Klemann is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her young son, Henry, and her old-man pug dog, Billy (he’s 15!). She is also an avid gardener and DIY-er. She has an embarrassingly large, hardy fuchsia collection, too many house plants, and a growing tool collection for all her at-home projects! She and her son always enjoy planting a good vegetable garden, too, and can’t wait for Spring.
