Meet Dr. Ryan Sanders
Dr. Ryan Sanders graduated Summa Cum Laude from Washburn University in 1997 with dual majors in biology and chemistry. In 2001, he graduated from the University of Nebraska School of Dentistry with his Doctor of Dental Surgery. After working as an associate dentist at offices in Minneapolis, MN, and Lawrence, KS, he purchased his current office from Dr. Don Meyer in February of 2006.
Dr. Sanders stays current following the latest techniques in dentistry by traveling to numerous continuing education courses throughout the country. His continuing education courses have taken him to such far away destinations as New York, Utah, Minnesota and Colorado. He has taken courses in endodontics, crowns, veneers, dentures, and other advances in the dental field. Ryan is a volunteer for the Kansas Mission of Mercy outreach program, which provides dentistry for individuals that would otherwise not be able to have access to dental care.
Dr. Sanders lives in Paola with his wife Ashley, his sons Jonas, Micah, and Kian and his daughter, Bryn. When he is not treating his patients, he coaches his children’s flag football teams, sponsors the chamber of commerce car show, organizes the annual Holy Trinity Parish church auction, sponsors the Border War BBQ event in Osawatomie, and is involved in many other community and charity events and organizations. His hobbies include boating and anything involving a ball; especially college football.
