Meet the Team

We take pride in our warm and nurturing team.

We love working with children of all ages, helping them learn the basics of oral health for a lifetime of healthy happy teeth.

Our patients' smiles at the end of their appointments make our days! There is no better feeling than knowing you have helped in the development of a child's self-confidence and eased a parent's concern.


My name is Cyndee. I'm a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) in Pediatric Dentistry, and I am now working at the front desk for Dr. Ryan. You'll talk to me when you call, and I'm the person who will handle your paperwork and appointments. I have been in the dental field since 2007. I chose pediatric dentistry so that I can teach children that dental appointments can be FUN! I am married and have two children. In my spare time I love watching my kids play soccer and football. I also love spending quality time with my family on vacation or reading.

My name is Kathy, and dentistry has been my life's career. I guess you could say it's my passion, as I have been an RDA for 38 years!

I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jim, our children (daughter, Lauren, and son, Logan); walking, baking, big family get-togethers, reading, gardening, sunshine ......but the love of my life is our grandson, Elias. We spend time riding bikes to the park and duck pond in our neighborhood, reading books, and playing cars and trains. And of course brushing and flossing our teeth!!

Hi! My name is Angie. I have been an RDA for many years, with the last ten of those years in Pediatric Dentistry. Working with children has been my favorite part of dentistry. I enjoy educating children in a fun and happy environment. You may see me at school! I am in charge of Dr. Ryan's preschool and kindergarten presentations. 

In my free time I enjoy health, fitness, and exploring the outdoors with my husband, our two teenage boys, and our dog, Rookie. I also enjoy watching my boys play football, water polo, and baseball.

My name is Nicole. I am a Pediatric RDA and have worked in dentistry since 2007. I love working with children! Every day I get to help teach children about their oral health while they teach me new things about what's on trend. I love how honest and excited kids are about all of the simple things in life.

I have lived in Auburn since 2009; I absolutely love it! Along with loving kids, I totally adore animals. I have a German Shepherd named Bella, two cats named Lola and Bud, and I foster critters like Bunnies from the Placer SPCA. In my spare time when I am not snuggling my fur babies or hanging out with my husband Kevin and my family, I enjoy camping, riding my quad and paddle boarding.

Hi! My name is Erin. You may know me - I've worked as a Registered Dental Assistant for Dr. Oshestki, the orthodontist we share the office with, for the past 10 years.  I got into the dental field because many people in my family were involved in dentistry, and I love kids! I have two children. My husband and I love taking our kids camping, being outdoors with them, and going boating. I look forward to meeting you!
