Ray Klein DDS is a pediatric dentist who is passionate about working with children and their parents on the prevention of cavities and dental education. Dr. Ray specializes in putting patients and parents at ease with his warm, funny personality. His goal is Total Tooth Decay Decimation! but he’s happy making sure all of his patients know how to care for their teeth and make good decisions about what they eat and drink.
Before he found his way to safeguarding teeth Dr. Ray completed his undergraduate studies in film at USC, worked in movie and TV production for several years before returning to his alma mater for his dental degree. Sometime between making his fourth and fifth set of dentures, he realized that he wanted to help children exclusively. And so, after two additional years of pediatric training at USC, including a residency at Miller Children’s Hospital, Ray became Dr. Ray, an amazing, board-certified pediatric dentist!
In his personal time, in addition to being a great dad, Dr. Ray can be found cooking his latest find from the local farmers market. Always in search of adventure he loves exploring remote parts of Peru—his wife’s birthplace and an opportunity to practice his fluent Spanish. He still loves watching movies—including the latest kids’ movies (he calls it “research”).
Dr. Ray feels lucky to have found a job where his skills make a difference in the lives of so many young people – providing a foundation for good health one tooth at a time.
