Our Team

Meet the Team

Our goal is to provide an energetic and stress-free environment. Dr. Ryan and our friendly staff always make time to answer any questions and address specific patient concerns prior to performing procedures. We strive to ensure that our patients and their families have a clear understanding of our expectations and the treatment provided.

Our staff constantly strive for self-improvement and attend regular continuing education conferences to better their knowledge and expertise in all facets of their occupation. Each clinical staff member who performs orthodontic procedures is a Certified Dental Assistant with a Certificate of Orthodontic Specialization. The Image Orthodontic team strongly believes in community involvement and routinely participates in public awareness and fundraising programs throughout the year.
