Ryan Woitas, DMD

Dr. Ryan Christopher Woitas earned a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry, cum laude, from Elmhurst University before completing his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. Dr. Ryan has an affinity for research. While in his undergraduate and graduate studies, he worked alongside faculty and mentors who set out to develop novel nanoparticles and their application in dentistry and medicine.

Dr. Ryan believes that our overall health begins with our oral health. He aspires to maintain knowledge of trending topics in dental medicine that demonstrate a close relationship between the state of the oral cavity and other body systems, for example, the strong association between periodontal disease and Type 2 diabetes. Dr. Ryan strongly believes in continuing education and keeping up with the latest in digital and implant dentistry, oral surgery and cosmetic dentistry.

When Dr. Ryan is away from the dental office, he enjoys spending time with his family and dog, Isabella. He likes to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, particularly spending time running, hiking and working out. Dr. Ryan has a dream of one day traveling the world to experience culture and cuisine with his significant other.
