Dr. Patrick Ryan is a native Texan and attended undergraduate school at Texas A&M University. He had interest in the dental field throughout college, but decided to take a year off after college and worked as a dental assistant. The office was a pediatric dental office and he loved working with the children. This started him down the path of becoming a pediatric dentist.

He also completed two years of pediatric dental training at Baylor where he was a Chief Resident at Children’s Hospital and Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
