Dr. Ryan Gross

Dr. Ryan Gross, DDS, MS

Dr. Ryan Gross grew up in northern New Jersey, but decided North Carolina was where he wanted to call home! Dr. Ryan attended the UNC Dental School and fell in love with the Carolinas. There he received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree with distinction and a Masters in Orthodontics.

Although dentistry was always his dream, he’s kind of a rock star! He has composed and performed piano music, beatboxed in an acapella group, and plays the drum set at his local church!

Dr. Ryan is also SOCIAL MEDIA FAMOUS! While in dental and ortho school, he developed a YouTube channel called Mental Dental, an online teaching platform for dental students and dentists around the world. The channel has over 200,000 subscribers and 20 million views and is one of the most popular resources for dental board exam preparation!!

In his spare time, Dr. Ryan loves playing board games, cooking (and eating!) with his fiancée, traveling to new places, and spending time with family and friends. He can’t wait to help give you the smile of your dreams!
