Dr. Michelle Lecklitner earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery from Indiana University School of Dentistry, graduating in 1992. Before attending dental school, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology from Indiana University. Continuing education is very important to Dr. Lecklitner and our entire office; this benefits our patients as we stay current on the latest methods and technology in dentistry. She attends continuing education seminars every year, and this is redirected to our patients, so they are provided with optimal care. Dr. Lecklitner strives to help each patient gain and maintain the healthiest mouth possible so they can gain confidence with a great smile and increase their long-term overall health. Because her patients are like her extended family, she treats her patients as she would treat family members. Dr. Lecklitner enjoys getting to know every patient and learning about their interests. For her, the fun part of dentistry is building relationships!

She grew up in this community and returned here after graduating from dental school, joining the dental practice of her father, who had been practicing here since 1958.
