Dr. Ryker Wells, D.M.D., is a native of Plain City. He grew up there and attended Fremont High School. Now, he’s building a thriving practice right here in our neighborhood and loves serving the people of our community. He has brought together an outstanding team focused on providing great service. His office staff is professional and friendly and includes two great hygienists, Michelle and Laura. Hailee and Ashley are super dental assistants, while Baylee runs the front desk with a smile.
Dr. Wells attended Weber State University, where he graduated with a B.S. in Automotive Engineering in 2007 and again in 2010 with a B.S., majoring in microbiology and minoring in chemistry, Cum Laude.
Dr. Wells ran a successful business in the automotive industry before he decided to enter UNLV School of Dental Medicine in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was an excellent student there and received several awards for his work. He was inducted into the Honors Curriculum at UNLV and awarded Outstanding Student in oral and maxillofacial surgery, as well as prosthodontics and endodontics. During his time there, he attained a great deal of experience in general dentistry as well as advanced training in wisdom teeth extraction, endodontics, cosmetic dentistry, and prosthodontics.
He is skilled at all sorts of dental procedures. You can go to him for wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, oral surgery, preventive care, teeth whitening, pediatric care, veneers, endodontic care, and restorative dentistry. Continued learning is important to Dr. Wells, and he is constantly expanding his knowledge.
One of his patients recently said, “I feel like Dr. Wells did a great job. I needed some dental work done, and I have been a patient of several dentists. He was very careful with every step of the process and made it as quick and painless as possible. Thanks!”
Dr. Wells loves spending time outdoors with his wonderful wife and four amazing kids. They enjoy riding horses, rodeo, hunting, and camping. He loves to support his kids as they play soccer and other sports.
Community is important to Dr. Wells. He could have gone anywhere to set up his practice; instead, he chose to work and live in his hometown, where he is active and engaged in local religious and community service.
Rocky Mountain Dental is now welcoming new patients. If you have been putting off your dental checkup or are shopping around for an excellent dentist in our area, contact Dr. Wells.
