Kleven joins Joy Dental Design team

By Staff | Mar 24, 2017


Dr. Sara Kleven joined the Joy Dental Design team in July 2016, after moving to Bottineau with her husband.

Originally from a small, rural town in Nebraska, Kleven has enjoyed working in a small-town atmosphere such as Rugby.

“I have really enjoyed working with the people of Rugby and the surrounding areas. I’m excited to get out more around town and get involved,” she said.

Kleven graduated from Chadron State College before attending dental school at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb.

Kleven graduated from Creighton with several awards, including the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry Award, Creighton Department of General Dentistry Award, Dr. Stanley J. Honsa Award – which is given to a graduating senior who has demonstrated clinical excellence, neatness and professionalism in restorative dentistry – and the International College of Dentists Student Leadership Award.

Kleven knew she wanted to be a dentist when she was 13 years old, after spending time shadowing her orthodontist. “That’s how I fell in love with teeth,” she said.

Kleven is a general dentist, meaning that she provides a variety of dental services including fillings, crowns, partials, whitening, root canals, dentures, bridges and restoring implants.

Veneers are also available.

One thing Kleven loves about being a dentist is not only taking care of a patient’s mouth, but how the mouth relates to the overall health of a patient.

“I think crowns are really fun,” Kleven said. “[It’s also] fun to work on front teeth because I get to see the results. A little bit of everything in my day is always nice.”

Something that makes Joy Dental Design unique is that it provides same-day crown procedures. Kleven can prepare the tooth and then make the crown in the office on the same day, which she really enjoys.

Joy Dental Design sees patients of all ages and is always accepting new patients.

Joy Dental Design is open Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
