DrBaileyRyan R. Bailey, DDS
Growing up in a small town in Utah sparked Dr. Bailey’s love of the outdoors; he enjoys fishing, hunting, sailing, skiing. After high school, Dr. Bailey served a two-year religious mission in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is a magna cum laude graduate of Utah State University with a Bachelor of Arts in biology, and in 2009 he was awarded his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (again receiving magna cum laude honors) from the Ohio State University College of Dentistry.After graduation, Dr. Bailey spent a year at a General Practice Residency at the Medical College of Georgia, whose emphases included implant surgery, bone grafting, and IV sedation. Dr. Bailey says of his residency:
“In dental school I saw how in the last 10 years dental implants have drastically improved the ways we solve dental problems – holding dentures in place and replacing missing teeth; I sought extra training to gain knowledge and experience in these technologies. I want to be able to bring those advancements to my patients at costs that most people can afford. I know that I can make a drastic difference in people’s lives.”
Dr. Bailey is also proficient in and enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, and is proud of delivering high quality care to his patients.

Dr. Bailey is married; he and his wife, Jessica, have four children: Sam age 6, Russell age 4, Evelyn age 2, and Stephen.
