About Us

Dr. Clint Rau

Pediatric Dentist

I am a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist. I graduated from Marquette University with my Doctorate in Dental Science and completed a pediatric dental residency at Baylor College of Dentistry. I have been practicing dentistry for 17 years. I truly enjoy working with children and helping them to achieve dental stability and health. My practice philosophy is to treat every child as if they were my own. My goal is to provide the best possible care to the children and special needs patients in the Manitowoc area.

My wife and three boys keep me very busy. I enjoy spending free time with my boys in scouts, on the water and in the woods. I grew up near here on a dairy farm and have family in much of the surrounding area. After spending many years on the road for school and with the military, it is time to grow our families roots and stay for a while. The Rau family has made Denmark their home. 

My favorite animated movie is any movie spent with my family.
Favorite Food is anything that tastes good!
