Dr. Ryan Wayland attended the Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. He is a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Dentistry earning his DMD in 2000 and his Prosthodontic Certificate in 2003.

Dr. Wayland served with the United States Air Force Dental Corps as a prosthodontist for four years in Okinawa, Japan from 2003-2007. His mix of public health and private practice prosthodontics has resulted in a wide variety of clinical and institutional experiences.

Dr. Wayland has lectured nationally and internationally on topics of dental implants, removable, and fixed prosthodontics. He continues to seek opportunities to further the education of his peers.

Upon returning to Louisville, Kentucky in 2011, he gained his sedation certification from the University of Kentucky and refreshed his surgical implant training with the Alabama Implant Education (AIE) course. He also gained additional surgical and implant experience and credentials in the year long Comprehensive Implant Residency Program (CIRP).

This training has launched an implant placement adjunct to his practice, and the opportunity to provide surgical support for his colleagues and their patients that has revolutionized and streamlined the delivery of dental implant prosthetic care. As he puts it, “Dental implant care should be short and concise, compassionate and kind, and accomplished so close to perfection no one can argue otherwise.”

Dr. Wayland is a member of the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP), Academy of Osseointegration (AO), the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI), The Kentucky Dental Association (KDA), American Dental Association (ADA), and the Louisville Dental Society (LDS).

His personal interests include riding his Harley with his wife (she has her own), swimming and boating with his children, and being ever obligated to the running events that occupy most all of his weekends.
