Dr. Ryan was born and raised in the mining city of Butte, MT. He received his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Montana Tech of the University of Montana, and attended The Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health to complete his dental school training.
After dental school, he moved to Yakima, Washington, to further pursue training to become a pediatric dentist. During his training he gained experience in non-pharmacological behavior guidance, oral sedation/hospital dentistry, management of children with special health care needs, trauma, growth and development, and comprehensive restorative dentistry.
After completing residency Dr. Ryan stayed on at the residency as a dental attending. He taught courses in dental trauma and behavioral guidance, and over-saw the residents in the clinical setting. He continued to work in the clinical setting as well to further his skill set. After two years as a dental attending Dr. Ryan decided to venture to the east coast where he worked at a private office in New Jersey. He continued to further his training and completed multiple CE training courses in laser dentistry, focusing on lip/tongue tie releases.
Dr. Ryan is Board-certified pediatric dentist. He is a Diplomate with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Ryan is excited to be back in Montana and serving the children and families of the Flathead Valley. He is here with his beautiful wife Tori and 5 children (Grier, Mazzi, Rhett, Wynne, and Taye). When Dr. Ryan is not in the dental office he loves spending time with his family outdoors.
