Dr. Mark Clauss, Orthodontist

After earning his dental degree from Temple University in 2000, Dr. Mark practiced general dentistry for five years before becoming an orthodontic specialist.

In 2005, he returned to school at SUNY Buffalo to complete his post-doctoral specialty training in orthodontics, graduating in 2007.


Your Watertown and Woodbury, CT Orthodontist

Dr. Mark purchased his practice in 2017, rebranding the office as Clauss Orthodontics.

He felt like it was a perfect opportunity to continue treating the patients and families he'd come to know over the years.


It’s About the Person Behind the Braces

When asked who his favorite patients are to treat, Dr. Mark says, "All of them".

Why? Because each patient goes through a physical transformation.

“You can see the change in their personality,” he says, “they become much happier people.”


An Experienced Orthodontic Specialist

Dr. Mark takes as many continuing education courses as he can throughout the year, especially in Invisalign.

His professional affiliations and accolades include:


Away from Work

In his spare time, Dr. Mark volunteers with Habitat for Humanity. He also enjoys restoring classic cars and skiing.

He and his wife Kelly have one son, Ethan. Dr. Mark is also a self-proclaimed “computer nerd” and claims to know a thing or two about video games – just ask!
