Creating a Lifetime of Healthy Smiles

As a pediatric dentist, I’m able to develop long-term, supportive relationships with my patients and their families. It’s rewarding to watch a child mature into a young adult who’s committed to caring for oral health.

Visiting the dentist can be a frightening experience for a child. Our team works hard to maintain a welcoming, safe environment, full of laughter and smiles. We want our young patients to be enthusiastic about coming to visit us, and we look forward to seeing them! — Dr. Ryan Cregger

Education and Continuing Education

Dr. Ryan received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry at Memphis in 2006. During dental school, he discovered a passion and affinity for working with children. His natural warmth and kindness quickly puts even the most timid patient at ease.

That passion led Dr. Ryan to complete a rigorous two-year pediatric dental residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. In 2008 he was awarded his Master of Science. In 2017, Dr. Ryan became a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist.

The pediatric dental residency provided Dr. Ryan with extensive experience in all facets of dental care for infants, children, and people with special needs. The program offered exposure to the latest techniques and technologies used in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral disease. It also taught operating room procedures, oral conscious sedation, and the use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas).

Dr. Ryan has been certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), Basic Life Support (BLS), and CPR. Each year he participates in many continuing education courses. This ensures he remains current on advances in treatment strategies, techniques, materials, and technology.

Personal Life

A Tennessee native, Dr. Ryan and his wife Allison live in Franklin with their two daughters, Rebecca and Abigail. They enjoy the many activities and events in the area. When he’s not caring for patients, Dr. Ryan’s priority is quality time with his loved ones. He coaches his daughter’s travel softball team and enjoys golf, fishing, and time outdoors.
