Meet Our Team

Hi, I’m Dr Klein, or feel free to call me Larry, or Dr Larry,

I try real hard to keep the atmosphere light and casual.

Part of my job is to find out what my patients’ goals and desires are, and then I form a plan to allow them to reach their goals, The best’ possible dental treatment may not be the ‘best’ for a particular patient.

Being a dentist is a family business for me. I was born and raised in Nashville, TN. After graduating from dental school and completing my residency, I bought my father dental practice in 1989 and had the honor of working with him for 11 years.

In 2004, I moved to St Petersburg with my family and purchased his St. Petersburg, FL, practice from Dr. Charles Martin.

I have 2 daughters and 1 son and I am married to the most wonderful woman, Kathy, who also works in the dental field. We are blessed to have 4 grand kids and 1 on the way.

I love following college and pro sports, especially college basketball ( Go Tarheels), playing tennis, all water sports, especially water skiing, jet skiing, and paddle boarding. Spending time with my family is treasured.
