Dr. Theresa Casper-Klock was born and raised in the Auburn area. Since she was 8 years old, Dr. Casper-Klock has always wanted to be a dentist, and having now practiced for over 30 years, she has no regrets in her decision. Dr. Casper-Klock graduated from Cayuga Community College with honors and from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology. In 1990, she graduated from the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine and immediately returned to Auburn to practice general dentistry, which to her is more accurately called “Family Dentistry.” She enjoys getting to the office every day and helping her patients look and feel their best! She recommends treatment to her patients based on a simple principle: would she recommend the treatment to her mother, brother or sister?
Being a dedicated professional, Dr. Casper-Klock has earned over 850 hours in continuing education classes. She is an active member in the American Dental Association®, New York State Dental Association, Seventh District Dental Society and Cayuga County Dental Society. Dr. Casper-Klock maintains Fellowships in the American College of Dentists, Pierre Fauchard Academy and the International Dental Implant Association.
For the past several years, Dr. Casper-Klock has participated with other members of the American Dental Association and American Student Dental Association with their Lobby Day in Washington, DC. She is a director on the board of Empire Dental Administrators, and she was recently elected by her peers to Trustee, to represent the Seventh District Dental Society on the New York State Dental Society’s board.
Dr. Casper-Klock enjoys giving back to the community by volunteering her time and talent. She has participated in several Missions of Mercy across New York state and in the Dominican Republic. Each November, Dr. Casper-Klock and her team honor veterans by hosting a “Veterans Appreciation Day,” where they provide free dental services to our local veterans.
Outside of dentistry, she and her husband, Vincent, enjoy traveling and keeping busy with their four adult children and grandson. When time allows, Theresa is also active in church activities, cooking, and square dancing.
