Dr. Klauser and her staff are exceptional and outstanding in every aspect. Her office uses cutting edge technology and best practices. I was initially referred to her for an implant, which was done with much care, thoroughness, and gentleness. She provided a calm and serene environment which was very relaxing. I have had two gum grafts since performed by her and her team with the same high professional standards. Upon entering the office, you feel confident you are safe because of all the processes and equipment she has in place to address COVID-19. Highly recommend Dr. Klauser and her team.

Dr. Donna K. Klauser is the absolute best at what she does. I was referred to see her for a dental exam and x-rays for my medical clearance to serve as a volunteer for the Peace Corps. I can say without a doubt that this is the best experience that I’ve ever had with a dental office. She was absolutely kind, helpful, and I felt privileged to be taken care of by her. I rarely review places, but for sure this place deserves it.

Dr. Klauser and her team are amazing! I had to have some major work done and they made my dental experience great! Everyone in the office is helpful and willing to do what is needed to make any dental experience positive! I would highly recommend Dr. Klauser and her team! Thank you all for taking great care of me and my teeth!

i have been going to this Periodontist for over 10 years. I have found the office extremely professional, friendly, and helpful. I have my teeth cleaned three times a year, lately with Louie. He takes the time to review my health, look carefully at teeth and gums, and is gentle in his cleaning process. I have had several oral surgeries throughout the years. Dr. Klauser always explains every procedure, often showing pictures too. She makes sure you are comfortable, gives you your choice of music to listen to, and dark glasses to restrict the bright light from bothering you.

I am one of those people who love to go to the dentist because I value a great smile. I got referred to Dr. Klauser, and I have to admit, even I was nervous. I had never gotten a bone graft and it sounded painful and scary. At the office, all my fears were put to rest. Dr. Klauser was very competent, but beyond that she gave me all the information that I needed to ease me into the surgery. I felt prepared for it as well as taken care of. The day of the surgery included a pep talk to get me mentally prepared, music to soothe my anxiety, and a blanket for when my body got cold from laying on the chair during the surgery. Dr. Klauser had the magical touch as I barely felt a thing, and the bone graft has healed perfectly. I was so impressed by her and the office that the following day at work, I raved about her to everyone that asked about my bone graft. Thank you Dr. Klauser!

I had an issue with my front tooth implant for years!!! I began to think I will never smile again.  Frustrated and tired I have been introduced to Dr. Klauser by my family dentist. And my life got better! Dr. Klauser is a professional who loves her trade. She is an intelligent highly skilled specialist, knowledgeable expert in the field of reconstructive techniques and surgery. She’s got gold hands, sharp eyes and brains! Come and experience the blessing of being in a company of a great doctor yourselves!

Vidhi S. from Keller, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Klauser for over 5 years and I drive 45 minutes to see her since I moved to OC. I have complicated overbite and periodontal issues from the overbite.  From the beginning she has made me feel very comfortable and done an excellent job with my teeth/ gums.  I cannot recommend her enough.  Saw multiple periodontist before her but they were not able to help me due to how complicated my case was.  I think my biggest compliment for Dr Klauser is that I do not fear dental appointments since meeting her.  Great bedside manner and she make an otherwise scary procedures, pain free! I have and will continue to refer my friends and family to her.

Christina G. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently had a gum transplant with Dr. Klauser. My first impression was ” She is one of the best doctors I have ever encountered!” I work with lots of doctors as an RN. I highly recommend Dr. Klauser to anyone who needs dental work. She is professional, very knowledgeable, respectful to her patients and staff, accomodating, and gentle. There are more I would love to say but I would go on and on and on… I had a very pleasant experience. Christina G.

S. G. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Klauser is professional, personable, knowledgeable, honest, and extremely interested in patient care and comfort.  She is easy to get a hold of for questions and she returns calls promptly.  Dr. Klauser is very patient.  I felt very much at ease during my procedures with her and was confident of a great result and readily available followup.  The surgical result was great!  She is obviously excellent at her work and loves what she does.  I would definitely recommend her for anyone needing periodontal work.

I saw Dr. Klauser a few years ago for my receding gums. I was driving my hygienist crazy trying to give me a good cleaning with the sensitive areas. Dr. Klauser took tissue from the roof of my mouth and grafted it to the receding areas of gum. I used nitrous oxide to relax me, and time passed quickly and painlessly. I went home expecting at least some discomfort but to my surprise I only needed a few Advil before bed to take the edge off. I avoided brushing and eating in the area for a week, then the stitches were removed, and saw the great results! I even returned over the next two years for additional areas, and now have pain free trips to the hygienist! Luckily my insurance covered part of the treatment, and they office interest free payments for 12 months thru Care Credit. A pleasant experience.

Dr. Klauser is absolutely amazing, she is extremely knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, treats a wide array of conditions, and provides patient-centered care. The care provided is high quality and patient specific. The staff is always very friendly and helpful, especially in dealing with insurance issues. It is evident that safety and hygiene is a priority as they maintain all precautions and the office is very clean. Absolutely recommend Arcadia Perio Care!

Sheila G. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a gem I have found in Dr. Donna Klauser and her wonderful staff. From the moment you walk in the office, you are greeted with a warm smile. Dr. Klauser is simply the BEST periodontist in her field. I had to have a gum graft done (yikes!) and she was so skilled that there was honestly hardly any pain and it healed beautifully. She explains everything, is receptive to any and all questions and is extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly. I highly recommend her and am so grateful I found her!

I can not speak in high-enough praises for Dr. Klauser and her team at Arcadia Perio Care. I am now out of state and no longer directly under her care but I desperately needed a fresh set of eyes on my present situation and Dr. Klauser found time for me and quickly found a way out for me. I can not thank her enough, not only for her skill and talent but also for her humanity.

Carol B. from San Pedro, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Klauser is nothing short of excellent. Her surgical skills (gum graft) are a thing of beauty, but equally important, she is a thorough and excellent communicator about what to expect from the procedure and does a wonderful job of making her patients (and their Moms) feel as comfortable as possible under the circumstances. Great post-op follow up. Highly recommend!

S. J. from La Crescenta-Montrose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Klauser is incredible.  She made getting a gum graft an easy experience.  Dr. Klauser explained every step, what she would do, why she would do it, and how the step would feel. The pain was less than expected and my daughter had NO swelling.  You could not find a better periodontist.

Sara W. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Klauser. She is an extremely thorough dental provider and did an excellent job of explaining what she was doing and why she was doing it. She was also very thoughtful and gave me follow up recommendations. She has an excellent staff that were all friendly and responsive. I would highly recommend Arcadia Perio Care.

Ellen S. from Altadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t know what it is about Arcadia, but first, my GP, Dr. Alice Lacy, is the best GP I’ve ever had. And then in something that I thought I’d rather stick a branch in my eyes than have a gum graft done, Dr. Klauser makes it a really GREAT experience. No wonder. My fabulous dentist, Dr. Q, in Monrovia, recommends Dr. Klauser. Dr. Klauser sees I’m with Dr. Lacy and praises her. My recent gum graft was FUN! Can you beat that?

Caroline G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My dentist said that I had gum disease and needed to see a periodontist. I was referred to Dr. Klauser by a good friend of my boyfriend. She is fantastic! I had visited a periodontist a few years ago, a young man who was more interested in his ski trip than anything else. (LIke his patients.) In contrast, Dr. Klauser charted my whole mouth and the gum loss on each tooth. She explained what the loss on various teeth meant. She is very professional, yet warm. I felt in good hands, confident that I was receiving excellent care. I have had scaling and root planing and a very seamless extraction done. Will have an implant in the future. My insurance is HMO and didn’t cover the treatment, but there is CareCredit that you can apply for. It’s like a credit card for dental care and there is no interest if you pay it off in the first year. I am very happy to have been referred to Dr. Klauser!

I hadn’t been to the dentist in over 15 years, and I was in danger of loosing my front lower tooth. My dentist determined that I would need to have a gum ablasion to save my tooth, and referred me to Dr. Donna Klauser. Dr. Klauser’s credentials are extremely impressive, she is board certified in perio-dontic care, and is on the faculty at the UCLA Dental School. I was immediately impressed with her extensive knowledge and her willingness to answer all of my questions. Dr. Klauser explained the procedure to me, and I knew she would be the only one I would do this procedure. Dr. Klauser took tissue from my lower gum tissue, and from the roof of my mouth. The surgery took two hours, and I was given the “laughing gas,” and Dr. Klauser was very methodical and cautious with getting me numb properly. Dr. Klauser is truly a skilled surgeon, but artist as well, she insists on perfection, lucky for my tooth. I had stitches after the procedure, and my pain was extremely manageable. The gum tissue is completely growing over my lower front tooth root that had been exposed. I wouldn’t have trusted anyone else but Dr. Klauser to perform this procedure on me. I used to loathe dentists, and dental specialists, but no longer. Dr. Klauser is so friendly, and professional. Dr. Klauser’s staff is also first class. The ladies in the office keep things moving along, and I never had to wait more than 5 minutes to see Dr. K. The whole organization is first class, and so professional. They accept most dental insurance I believe.

what can be said about this wonderful periodontist??? not enough that is for sure!! my daughter is her patient and she is 15 and in need of gum graphs.  she was hesitant at first, when we got to the office and met dr. klauser she was so happy and excited to know that this wonderful dr., lady, mother would be taking care of her, she no longer was afraid.  surgery day came and she had brought in the wonderful dr. quin as her anesthesiologist.  they allowed me to be in the room with her until she was really sleepy, and my daughter was smiling as she went to sleep and woke up the same way.  both dr. k and dr.q helped us out to the car and were fabulous. they called later that day to make sure she was doing good and if we had any questions.  we had a follow up to remove the stitches and my daughter was upset that she would no longer be seeing her!! now that is wonderful doctoring!! thank you to you dr k!!!
