A Little History behind Klein Orthodontics

Dr. Paul Klein began the practice in 1954. In 1969, while Doug was still in junior high, Dr. Paul Klein and another local orthodontist invented AlastiK ligature ties. These are small colored elastics used to attach orthodontic arch wires to each brace. This was a simple, ingenious step in the evolution of modern orthodontics and has had a huge impact worldwide. Anywhere you happen to be traveling in the world, if you see someone with braces and colored rubber bands, you are seeing the end result of an idea that originated in our office.

While growing up, Dr. Doug spent summers and after school hours working in the office doing pretty much everything from janitorial duties to assisting with patients. Along the way, it seemed clear to him that he would follow in his father's footsteps in the profession of orthodontics. In 1983, Dr. Doug joined his father in the Lake Oswego office where they enjoyed working side-by-side for 15 years until Dr. Paul retired in 1998. Dr Doug also opened an office in Tualatin in 1983. Klein Orthodontics has been involved in orthodontic treatment longer than any other family run office in the State of Oregon.
