  • Eric

    Hi, I'm Eric. I am one of the many family members of Kloch Family Dentistry. I currently hold the position of lead technician in our in-office dental lab. I have been a dental tech for almost 20 years. I started my career in N Carolina and moved to this area in 2016 when I started working for Dr. Kloch.

    When I'm not helping people have brighter smiles, my hobbies include, but are not limited to, amateur drone piloting and woodworking. I'm also a big gamer nerd. Plus, I have 2 wonderful kids that keep me busy the rest of the time.

    I can’t wait to assist you with any of your denture woes, I haven't found a problem we can’t fix yet!
