Born in Hong Kong, Ryan and his family moved to Canada when he was three. Ryan speaks fluent English and some Vietnamese. Raised mainly in Edmonton, after graduating high school he attended the University of Alberta in the Sciences program majoring in Statistics and minoring in Physics. After three years at U of A Ryan decided that he wanted to specialize in the dental profession and discovered a passion with prosthodontics in the oral cavity. Shortly after he was accepted into the Denturist program at NAIT and graduated from the program with Honours. Ryan has had the opportunity to practice and manage many denture clinics surrounding Edmonton, before he decided to take ownership of the First Impressions Denture Clinic. He continues to participate in implant seminars and dental courses to furthermore broaden his education to benefit his patients. He is an active member with the College of Alberta Denturists (CAD), Denturist Association of Alberta (DAA) & Denturist Association of Canada (DAC). If Ryan isn't at his practice he likes to stay active by playing soccer and the occasional round of golf. He also enjoys traveling and seeing different parts of the world. His goals as a Denturist are to work closely with patients, listen to their wants and determine the optimum treatment options that best suits their needs. He looks forward to treating the Edmonton and surrounding areas and welcomes each patient with a warm smile!
