Dr. David Klein is the Assistant Dental Director of the HealthPartners Dental Plan. Prior to joining HealthPartners, he owned and operated a successful private dental practice in Bloomington, Minn. He was also a full-time faculty member at the University of Minnesota, School of Dentistry. A lifetime Minnesotan, Dr. Klein enjoys nature photography, exploring national parks across the country with his wife and two kids, and staying active through racquetball, tennis and biking. “HealthPartners strongly promotes the mouth-body connection through research, plan design and care delivery, which makes it an exciting place to work,” Dr. Klein says. He appreciates the HealthPartners philosophy and promotion of medical-dental integration, which is why he’s an advocate for educating expecting moms on the importance of oral health during pregnancy.
