A Warm Welcome To Our Dental Practice

The dental practice of Mike Ryan, DDS is founded on the fundamental belief that good dental health results from a healthy relationship between dentist and patient. That you, as a patient, are more than just a set of teeth to be treated. That your overall health is understood and considered. That your time is respected. And that when you’re with your dentist you are mutually engaged in a collaborative commitment to keeping your smile healthy. In a world of corporate dentistry where profitability is often maximized through impersonal, assembly-line care, Dr. Michael Ryan offers a decidedly different approach. Personal, traditional and relationship-based: that’s the dental practice of Michael Ryan, DDS.

Our Story

Dr. Michael Ryan began practicing with his father, Dr. Ronald Ryan, in 1984, shortly after graduating from Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska. Ron and Mike practiced together for eleven years before Mike lost his dad to cancer, at which time he became a sole practitioner.

He is currently a member of the American Dental Association, Colorado Dental Association, Western Colorado Dental Society, and the Hollenback-Medina Academy of Operative Dentistry. Dr. Ryan and his wife, Karole, have four children, located in Minot, ND; Juneau, AK; Collbran, CO; and Denver, CO.

He stays busy outside with hunting, fishing, hiking and grape growing; and inside with shop work, orchids and winemaking.
