DrRyanDr. Ryan Booth grew up around Booth Orthodontics. From receiving his braces as a kid, to working as the office handyman over summer break, and eventually becoming a clinical assistant, Dr. Ryan has always felt at home at the practice. Those early years were extremely influential as he realized orthodontics had the power to positively change the lives of patients. He saw first-hand countless patients, whom on the day they got their braces off, left the office with the new found confidence that a beautiful, healthy smile creates. It became clear that becoming an Orthodontist would give him the chance to greatly impact the lives of his patients for the better.

Dr. Ryan graduated with honors from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science in Cellular and Molecular Biology. After college, he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. Dr. Ryan went on to complete two and a half years of advanced specialty training in Orthodontics at the University of Colorado and earned his Masters of Science in Dentistry for his research on the properties of today's high­tech orthodontic wires. He brings with him the latest training in cutting edge techniques and familiarity with the newest technologies that will help provide patients with exceptional care. Dr. Ryan is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Illinois Society of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, and Chicago Dental Society. In his free time, Dr. Ryan loves staying active by running, biking, skiing, fly-fishing, and hiking. He also enjoys cooking and cheering on Chicago sports teams.
