Ryan D. Sparks, DMD
I am proud to be a native Oregonian who grew up in West Linn and graduated from West Linn High School. I went on to attend Oregon State University, where I met my amazing wife, Jenny. I truly enjoyed my four years at Oregon State University and I am a Beaver believer for life. After graduating, I completed my dental training at Oregon Health Science University School of Dentistry, earning my Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 1999. My wife and I returned to Corvallis at that time to begin my dental practice. We now have three wonderful children, Sam, Sophia, and Harrison. I love Corvallis and it is a great place to raise a family. We are avid Oregon State University supporters, and we love hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities. I personally enjoy weight lifting, softball, basketball, traveling, reading, and most importantly, giving back to my community.
I am an active member in good standing of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Oregon Dental Association (ODA), the Southern Willamette Dental Society (SWDS) and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID). I am also a member and Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD).
