Dr. Ryan Meyer, DDS

Dr. Meyer is a native of Davenport, IA. He always wanted to work in health care and became interested in dentistry because of a neighbor’s older son who was a dentist.

He received his bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Iowa in 1998 and was a classmate of Dr. Post at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. Dr. Meyer served at the VA hospital for several years, including as chief of dental services from 2010 to 2013. He was also an assistant professor at the UI College of Dentistry during this same period. After working in private practice in South Carolina for a few years, he joined our team in 2016.

Dr. Meyer is certified to administer inhaled sedation, local anesthetic, and CPR, AED, and first aid. He has additional training in OSHA and HIPAA compliance and Invisalign. Dr. Meyer always tries to go out of his way to help patients; he feels that’s why they enjoy coming to see him.

Dr. Meyer has been a dentist since 2003. Throughout his career, his favorite part of his job has been seeing patients transformed over a relatively short time, often after having dental problems for so long. He’s happy to be in Rochester and to have come full circle with Dr. Post since they were dental classmates and co-residents together.

When he isn’t chairside helping patients, you might find him watching baseball, golfing, enjoying the outdoors, traveling, watching movies, and spending time with his wife and their son.

Common Patient Questions

  • What can you do for me to relieve my dental anxiety?

    We offer our Comfort Menu to all of our patients here at Northwest Dental Group to utilize as they would please. This includes comfort pillows, blankets, sunglasses, noise canceling headphones and much more! We also offer three kinds of dental sedation including oral sedation, pre-op sedatives and inhaled sedation.

  • How soon can I bring my child in for their first Exam?

    The American Dental Association advises bringing your child to see the dentist before their first birthday, or as soon as their teeth begin coming in. To encourage you not to delay your child’s first appointment, Northwest Dental Group offers free dental exams for children younger than 3. Our team is so efficient that we can often examine a baby along with mom or dad in less than an hour!

  • Am I a good candidate for Dental Implants?

    Our team at Northwest Dental Group takes your comfort and oral health seriously, so we perform a detailed evaluation of your mouth before offering dental implants as an option. We might recommend further treatments prior to implants if your gums are infected or damaged, or your bone structure has deteriorated to the point where it won’t provide a stable foundation for your implant.

  • What constitutes a Dental Emergency?

    Ongoing bleeding, knocked out tooth, fractured or chipped tooth or a major infection. At Northwest Dental Group, we understand the panic that can set in during a dental emergency, so we work tirelessly to put your mind at ease. With over 50 years of experience, we have helped countless patients recover from dental emergencies and restore their smiles.

  • How much does Whitening cost?

    After a one-time investment of $99, you’ll receive custom whitening trays that completely cover your teeth along with a free whitening solution for life!
