About Us

Rick E. Klug, D.D.S.

root canal treatmentDr. Klug feels privileged and proud to claim the local village of Sodus as his boyhood home. He is a 1969 graduate of Benton Harbor High School and a 1973 Kalamazoo College grad. After receiving his doctorate from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 1977, he opened his dental practice at its present location.

His wife, Rachel, uses her past experience in Human Resources to assist chairside and also help in the business office. Outside of the office, Dr. Klug and Rachel enjoy attending the many festivals and concerts in our own beautiful Southwestern Michigan. They are also active members of Grace Lutheran Church in St. Joseph.

If you think one of the faces at the front desk looks like a Klug, you’re right! Dr. Klug’s daughter, Fallon, is a much appreciated member of the staff, helping out during her days off from working at our local radio station, Mid-West Family Broadcasting. Fallon graduated from Hope College with a double major in Communication and Spanish, and she would like to return to NBC Studios in New York to continue her career in media entertainment.

Dr. Klug and Rachel also have three other children. Zachary, the oldest of the four, graduated with a BA in biology from Kalamazoo College and has been employed at the cancer research department in the University of Michigan hospital since leaving St. Joe. Next in line is Jake, who graduated from Bethany Lutheran College in Mankato, Minn. with a music degree and is currently director of music at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Dearborn, Mich. Jake is an accomplished organist and composer and plays regularly for worship services and weddings. Kaitlin, the only child not out of college, is a sophomore at Michigan Lutheran High School. Kaitlin is an avid sports fan with an emphasis on basketball and soccer. She will be playing varsity sports this coming year, in between studies and spending time with her many friends.

Dr. Klug is a member of American Straight Wire and Functional Orthodontics, The American Dental Association, and the Lakeland Valley Dental Society. He maintains his accreditation by attending numerous post-graduate courses (most recently a Soft Tissue Management and Implant Seminar) and Chicago and Grand Rapids orthodontic study groups. His 30-plus years of experience have helped him blend his technological expertise with the artistry needed to produce winning smiles.
