Meet Mt. Vernon's Orthodontic Specialist
Alex Kluemper, D.M.D., M.S.
Alex Kluemper joins our practice and our community from his hometown of Lexington, Kentucky. Upon graduating with high distinction from dental school at the University of Kentucky, Dr. Kluemper was one of three dentists to receive specialty training in craniofacial growth and development, interceptive and surgical orthodontics, and the biology of tooth movement during his three-year residency at the University of Kentucky. His training included exposure to several different kinds of orthodontic appliances including traditional braces and Invisalign, as well as cutting edge orthodontic techniques that he is excited to bring to the practice.
Dr. Kluemper is a published researcher and has received awards for his research both in dental school and during his residency. He was selected by the University of Kentucky to present his research at the prestigious Hinman Student Research Symposium. In addition to his certificate in Orthodontics, he also earned a Master of Science degree during his residency, researching ways to prevent white spot lesion development during orthodontic treatment. He is proud member of the American Association of Orthodontists.
Dr. Kluemper’s father is an orthodontist, and his aunt is a dentist, but his career in orthodontics was not always part of the plan. After receiving his undergraduate degree in acting, Dr. Kluemper lived in New York City and later Nashville, TN pursuing acting, music and songwriting for five years before returning to school. These days, his singing and acting talents are mainly used to entertain his two young children. Dr. Kluemper and his wife, Brooke, are excited to get to know the area and put down roots in the community.
