Katie Klein is an incredible orthodontist and human being! My son now has beautiful teeth thanks to her impeccable care. She made a 1.5 year journey that could have been ordeal, seem seamless and well-supported. The staff is prompt and equally caring. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for orthodontic care.

Dr. Klein is the best! She came highly recommended by several specialists in Boston, and I feel lucky that my kids are under her expert care. She is extremely knowledgeable, and she always takes the time to listen to my concerns and answer all of my questions. Dr. Klein and her entire staff are friendly, warm, and welcoming. Her office is gorgeous and immaculate. It is a wonderful experience!

Dr. Klein is an outstanding orthodontist. But beyond that, she is personable, down-to-earth and treats patients with respect. Her practice is professional and equipped with state-of-the art technology. The office is bright, airy and inviting. I was a patient of Dr. Klein’s early days, when she was just out of school and worked on my braces then. I was very happy with the care she provided but had to remove my braces earlier due to other medical reasons. When she opened her practice in Needham, I was happy return to her and am glad I did. Highly recommended!

I was recommended to Doctor Klein by three (3) different people! Her practice is professional, yet personable and a pleasure to visit. The staff is an A+ in customer service. Knowing that your children are in the best of hands is so important, and your children's smiles will reflect the perfect work of Doctor Klein. I highly endorse and recommend Doctor Klein.

Dr. Klein's office has been a great find. Their all female staff, supportive environment, and warm office space instills such confidence not only in the patient, but the family. My 12 yo daughter has been attending care at this office over the last year. At times my daughter has attended appointments after school by herself. The front desk staff phones me to let me know she arrived safely. Dr. Klein rings me later in the day if there is anything to discuss, or inquires about our daughters well being if there was a big adjustment to her mouth. The medical care is top notch, but the compassion is why we return.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Klein and the entire team at Katie Klein Orthodontics. I went to her after learning that I needed double jaw surgery, which required surgical orthodontics. After having the surgery 7 months ago and getting my braces last week, I can say without a doubt that I would absolutely recommend her to anyone else going through the process. She was honest and upfront every step of the way about what I needed, what she recommended, the timeline, the pricing, and everything else in between. She communicated well with all the numerous parties involved; my insurance, my dentist, and several different surgeons. Getting double jaw surgery was one of the hardest things I’ve ever gone through and having Dr. Klein in my support team was the best decision. She was kind and empathetic, invested in getting me the best results, and the biggest cheerleader through some of the toughest moments. I love my results and can’t thank her enough!

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Klein, she is simply the best! As a child I had extensive maxiofacial surgery and as an adult needing lower braces for a few wonky teeth I did extensive research to find someone with the experience needed. Dr. Klein took the time to understand my situation and confidently came up with a plan. The entire process was flawless. She is kind, great "bedside manner" and clearly has the skills. I travel an hour to her office and I wouldn't have it any other way. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Klein!

We were referred to Dr. Klein by another orthodontist because our son's severe underbite presented a more complex case than he felt he could handle. To be referred by another orthodontist for your skill and experience says a lot and it was the first clue that we were in great hands. From the first meeting, it was clear that Dr. Klein is incredibly knowledgeable and she outlined our son's treatment plan in a way that put us all at ease. He needed jaw surgery in addition to braces to correct his bite, and she worked with his surgeon to coordinate each step of the process. He'll be getting his braces off in a few weeks and I am so pleased with the outcome. He has a beautiful smile and a perfect bite and we are so thankful to Dr. Klein. She is the perfect combination of skill, experience and professionalism wrapped up in an approachable and friendly personality and I highly recommend her!

Dr Klein is an exceptional orthodontist. She took over my daughter’s care several years ago after some less positive experiences. She took her orthodontics to completion and we were so happy that I decided to do Invisalign. Dr Klein’s office always runs on time. Her assistants are professional. Dr Klein is personable and knowledgeable. It has always been a pleasure to interact with her. She did a fantastic job with my treatment despite some of my anatomical challenges. I am so pleased with my outcome. I would highly recommend her to anyone of any age. She is a gem.

Katie Klein is the absolute best orthodontist out there! She has put braces on all 3 of my children and is a perfectionist in the very best sense of the word. My two daughters were each in braces for less than 2 years (ahead of schedule in both cases!) and their smiles are just lovely. In addition to being the greatest orthodontist ever, Katie also is one of the kindest, most engaging and friendly people I know. I cannot recommend her highly enough....we followed her to her brand new (beautiful!) practice in Needham and I would follow her anywhere!!!

Dr. Klein is truly the best of the best and I would recommend her to everyone without hesitation. She led my orthodontic work through my jaw surgery and has been knowledgeable, empathetic, and so caring every step of the way. Her appointment at Harvard Medical School is a testament to her commitment to providing the most cutting edge, highest quality care for her patients and on top of that she’s just the sweetest human being ever!

Dr. Klein goes above and beyond for her patients. She is kind, honest, and empathetic - you can tell she genuinely cares and wants to help. She gave me so much of her valuable time to help me and set my mind at ease. My mom is also a patient and we both have nothing but high praise for Dr. Klein. I am truly so grateful to have found a doctor like her - she is one in a million! Don’t think about going anywhere else for your orthodontic needs.

You truly could not find a better orthodontist than Dr. Klein. Not only is she brilliant at what she does, but she is one of the most compassionate people that I've met. She comes up with treatment plans that are truly tailored to the patient, both medically and in terms of what's more feasible for their lifestyle. Plus, she shows up every day with the most warm and welcoming attitude -- you'll never know how much fun one can have at a medical appointment until you become Dr. Klein's patient. Thank you so much for everything that you do!

Dr.Klein is amazing! She is professional, kind, easy to talk to and treats all of her patients with respect. She is honest and very hardworking. She takes excellent care of children and adults and respects her patients time. I have worked in the dental field for years and know that all orthodontists NOT are the same!!! Dr. Klein is the “real thing” and goes above and beyond for her patients. We would not have treatment anywhere else.

Having already had braces as a kid, experiencing tmj pain for years, and bouncing from one oral pain specialist to another, I was extremely frustrated and nervous when it was recommend that along with jaw surgery, I have braces (again) as part of my newest treatment plan. Dr. Klein could not have been more supportive or done a better job easing that frustration and anxiety! She is one of the most kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, and highly skilled doctors I have had the pleasure of working with. She truly goes the extra mile to thoroughly address all questions and concerns, and takes the time to explain the best treatment options specific to each individual patient in a clear, concise, and respectful manner. She set attainable goals and gave honest expectations on outcomes and timelines. She maintained constant contact with both myself and my surgeon every step of my treatment, despite the craziness of the pandemic and made sure that there was zero miscommunication. I cannot recommend her enough! She and her team ...

I am a professional, in dentistry for over 30 years. I have seen a lot. My daughter had a very challenging treatment plan ahead of her and I would only trust Dr.Katherine Klein with her care. Dr Klein is an outstanding orthodontist with the foresight and experience that compares to no other. Her calm demeanor and compassion is what makes her a true professional. I highly recommend her to any adult or child. The results exceeded all expectations and my daughter is ecstatic!!!

Dr. Klein is a world class orthodontist. From the first consult, through full metal braces and two jaw surgeries, to retainer "tune ups" Dr. Klein exhibited extraordinary skill, knowledge, and compassion. As someone with very high standards, I deeply appreciated her commitment to the best possible outcome. Dr. Klein earned my trust by thoroughly discussing treatment plans, carefully listening to my concerns, and supporting me through a long process. One can have great insurance coverage and go to a stellar hospital, but the clinician who literally holds our head in their hands plays the most important role. I actually looked forward to my appointments because Dr. Klein's professionalism and bedside manner always made me feel like my health was her top priority. Plus, she is exceptionally easy to talk to and kind hearted. If Dr. Klein's office was on the moon, I would travel there rather than go to anyone else. She is a perfect example of the best and the brightest.

Look nowhere else in Boston if you need an orthodontist. Dr. Klein is super knowledgeable, very skilled, extremely patient, and has perfect bedside manners. She and her team made themselves available to answer questions and make adjustments on very short notices. There were very invested in achieving the best result which you will for sure see the day the braces come off.

I recently brought my daughter to see Dr. Klein in consultation. While many parents think their child is special, my daughter presents as a very complex patient. We already know that jaw surgery will be necessary in addition to braces in order to align her teeth. Add to that a genetic condition that leaves the teeth weak and unreceptive to adhesive. Dr. Klein was not deterred. It was obvious from the start that she had done her homework. My daughter and I were presented with more than one well thought out scenarios with options that took into consideration the many challenges of her case. Most importantly, my daughter and I were listened to at every opportunity. Dr. Klein's empathy, patience and kindness are as highly developed as her exceptional technical skills. After more consults than I can count, we have stopped searching for the ideal orthodontist, as we have found one.

This is the place you need to go if you have difficult orthodontic procedures. Our daughter needed maxilofacial surgery and complementary orthodonture. Dr Klein works hand-in-hand with the surgeons at MGH next door to develop a plan of treatment both before and after surgery. This is perhaps the best place in the country for orthodonture and maxilofacial surgery. They handle the problems that others cannot. Our first orthodontist near where we lived sent us here as he couldn't handle it. It is worth the trouble to travel here to get the best treatment. In addition Dr Klein is a wonderful person who explains the course of care accurately and compassionately. We are so happy we took our daughter here and the final result was amazing!

Dr. Klein is a shining star in orthodontics. I was lucky enough to have her by my side throughout a very long process leading up to a serious jaw surgery as well as for all of the follow-up afterward. She is the most knowledgable (though her experience and credentials can really speak for themselves) and personable doctor that's ever taken care of me. She truly made me feel as comfortable and well-prepared as possible considering the total jaw realignment surgery I was going to be undertaking. She is meticulous in her work and, thanks to Invisalign, my smile has never looked better. I literally flew into Boston after moving away specifically so that I could continue to be under her care. I simply cannot emphasize enough how grateful I am to both her and her team in taking care of me during such a stressful time. Bottom line: this surgery changed my life, and there's no one else I would have rather worked with.

Dr. Klein is brilliant! Working with her for at least a decade and witnessing her amazing work at MGH I could not think of any other orthodontist I would want to take care of my twin daughters.

If I could give her 10 stars, I would. From start to finish, her work is truly exceptional. When I began treatment, her consultation was thoughtful, honest, and transparent with regards to expectations, outcomes, and pricing. I had had a failed and traumatic orthodontic experience in the past, and thus was very nervous at first, but she immediately put me at ease. She explained procedures clearly in words that non-clinicians (like myself) can understand, and answered all of my questions with respect and professionalism. She absolutely delivered on the expectations she set forth when we first met. From my own experience and observed interactions with other patients, it is clear that she is empathetic to the needs of each patient and is a great listener. Her knowledge of the field, practice, and published research is vast and deep, and she uses the latest technologies to deliver the best treatment tailored to each patient. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Dr. Klein is the absolute best! I am a dentist myself and I wouldn't go to anyone else. She is knowledgeable, kind, and easy to get along with. My teeth look great!
