Meet Dr. LeClere
Dr. LeClere is a lifelong Hoosier. She grew up in Fort Wayne and arrived in Indianapolis in 2004 to study biology and run cross-country at IUPUI. During her undergraduate studies, Dr. LeClere began to realize her passion for dentistry by volunteering at the Wishard Hospital dental clinic. She saw firsthand how dentistry could improve people’s quality of life. This clinic also motivated her to help the underserved population, and Dr. LeClere still enjoys volunteering and teaching patients the importance of dental care. From there, Dr. LeClere went on to attend and graduate from Indiana University School of Dentistry.
Dr. LeClere has worked in Irvington since 2013. In that time, the Irvington community has made an incredibility positive impact on her life, which is why she’s so delighted to be opening a new, state-of-the-art office that Irvington can be proud of. Dr. LeClere is excited to be a part of Irvington’s continued growth, and she is looking forward to meeting more fresh faces in this new office space.
Her professional recognitions and affiliations include:
- American Dental Association
- Indiana Dental Association
- People’s Health Center Volunteer
- Chancellors Scholar at IUPUI
- Top 100 IUPUI Students
While dentistry is, of course, a huge part of Dr. LeClere’s life, so is her family. Dr. LeClere met her husband, Kyle, while studying for dental exams at a local coffee shop. He opened the door for her on their way out, and the rest is history. They have two young boys, Eli and Cole, and recently welcomed their daughter, Gwyneth, in July 2018! Eli currently attends school just down the street from Dr. LeClere’s office at Our Lady of Lourdes.
In her spare time, Dr. LeClere loves her morning workouts and evenings with her boys. On the weekends, the LeCleres love visiting family, playing at parks or museums, or just spending lazy days at home. They also find themselves frequently eating at the many great restaurants that Irvington has to offer. If you ever see Dr. LeClere out, please say hello!
Dr. LeClere loves meeting people and hearing their stories, and cannot wait to meet you!
As a mother, Dr. LeClere understands the need for gentle, attentive family dentistry. She works hard with patients, regardless of their age, to offer stress-free, gentle dental care.
