Patient Review By David C

Dr. Klein is genuinely kind and caring; as is the entire staff there at the Stow office. I am 76 years old and had never before had a wisdom tooth extracted; so I was quite apprehensive. Dr. Klein was so kind to me! He was sincerely compassionate and put my mind at ease before the procedure. I could tell by the way he treated me that he is genuinely empathetic. I highly recommend Dr. Klein and especially to anyone who, like me, is "elderly." He will treat you with respect. Within moments of first meeting him you will realize that you have made the right decision.

Patient Review By Jim G

We all dread anything dental related and a tooth extraction is never at the top of anyone's list! Everyone I encountered AO&MS was professional and courteous. The procedure was painless and all my 'dread' was for naught! Thank you Dr. Klein for your 'every guy' professionalism and kindness. Had I known ahead of time that you were a WVU sports enthusiast, we could have had some Coach Huggins conversation!

Patient Review By April W

I had a terrible infection from a wisdom tooth removal (by a different surgeon) and landed in bad shape in the hospital! Dr. Klein was the “hospital on call guy” but he helped me through everything in there and continued care in his office until I was finally in the clear! We’re talking weeks here and he does not except my insurance! How often these days can one say about a doctor “he did it because he cares” I can’t say enough about how wonderful these folks are.
