Dr. Kari Ryan opened her general dentistry practice nine years ago in July. She’ll never forget the date because it was the same month her daughter was born. While her family has grown since then, so has her business, and the mom of two is now happily renovating her office to add even more space for her employees and patients.
“We offer general dentistry, cosmetics, implants, a bit of everything,” said Dr. Ryan, noting one specialty is creating same-day crowns. “We make them beautiful and functional in two hours, and it’s one of our favorite things to do.”
Having always loved medicine and working with her hands, Dr. Ryan believes dentistry is her calling. “It’s the best mix of medicine and art and working with people. I love connecting with our patients and rising to the challenge to help them leave better off than when they came in,” she said.
And patients love coming in, thanks to the cozy space and friendly staff, which includes her associate dentist and fellow working mom, Dr. Kristi Dillard. “We are the place to come if you’re nervous about going to the dentist. People in our office thrive on helping others,” she said. “We focus on the individual and their whole health and situation. It’s not just looking at their mouth. For that kind of personalized care, you should come see me.”
