Dr. John Kling II, DDS, MAGD

General Dentist

Dr. Kling has had a lifelong passion for science and the arts so a career in dentistry seemed liked a perfect way to intertwine these two disciplines. He choose to attend Case Western Reserve University school of Dental Medicine (CWRU) in Cleveland, Ohio. CRWU has always had the reputation of being one of the most respected schools in the country for both clinical education and for being on the forefront of the latest technological advances. Subsequent to his graduation from dental school in 1984, Dr. Kling completed a general practice residency at Buffalo General Hospital in Buffalo, New York. This one-year residency program was invaluable for Dr. Kling because he was able to refine his clinical expertise while gaining extensive knowledge in a variety of dental and medical issues. Furthermore, he was able to work side by side with some of the most outstanding dentists in the country.

While the experience in dental school and the residency program formed a very solid professional foundation, Dr. Kling has continued to broaden his expertise with a seemingly insatiable desire to participate in continuing education. Since his graduation from dental school, Dr. Kling has completed 2000 hours of advanced dental education. The cornerstone of this expansion in Dr. Kling’s knowledge started at the L.D. Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida. The institute was conceived in 1969 and the first classes started in 1972. Dr. Pankey was a pioneer in dental education and the foundation of his message was the combination of exquisite technical skill of the dentist and the relationship built between the dentist and patients. Dr. Kling has completed over 300 hours of education and training at the Pankey Institute.

Dr. Kling has continued his pursuit for knowledge at some of the finest learning centers in the world. Three in particular stand out- The Louisiana State University (LSU), the Eubank Institute, and the Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Study. He completed both of the strenuous cosmetic continuums at the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry. The knowledge gained at LSU allowed Dr. Kling to further expand his clinical skills in cosmetic dentistry as well as treating complex bite issues. His advanced study at the Eubank Institute and the Dawson Academy afforded Dr. Kling the opportunity to learn and work with some of the “true masters” in the field of dentistry.

Dr. Kling is an active member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, Virginia Dental Association, Northern Virginia Dental society, and the Alexandria Dental Society where he previously served as president. As an active community member, Dr. Kling also belongs to the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce, the Alexandria Rotary Club, was the former chair of the Alexandria Public Health Advisory Commission and was involved with the Give Back A Smile Program, providing local individuals with reconstructive dentistry after domestic abuse.
