According to Dr Ryan, being a dentist is the best job in the world! His goal is to provide beautiful, healthy smiles for all of his patients in a relaxing and comfortable environment.
Dr Ryan qualified from the University of Edinburgh in 2013 with an honours degree in medical science. Using the academic skills and knowledge obtained from this degree course, Dr Ryan was accepted to study dentistry at the Aberdeen Institute of Dentistry. Whilst studying, he developed an interest in Endodontics and was awarded the nomination for the Tom Pitt-Ford undergraduate prize in endodontology from the institute for demonstrating excellent clinical and theoretical knowledge in this field.
Shortly after graduating, Dr Ryan worked in general practice where he successfully completed his vocational training year. During this year he won the prize for ‘Best Case Presentation” – a complex case that involved several disciplines in dentistry including paediatrics and minor oral surgery.
Dr Ryan continues to invest heavily in postgraduate education so that he is able to offer and provide the highest quality of evidence-based care for his patients. To date, he has completed courses on tooth whitening, composite bonding and Invisalign. His most recent success was achieving a postgraduate diploma in clinical orthodontics.
