Meet Dr. Ryan Mueller
Gentle and skilled, Dr. Mueller spends time getting to know his patients to help him deliver a personal level of care. Orthodontics allows him to learn who a person is because treatment happens over several years and he sees patients about once a month. He has plenty of time to create a connection with his patients and get updated on all their sports and activities they are involved in.
Where he learned his stuff.
Dr. Mueller was awarded his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Minnesota in 2012, where he finished first in his class of more than one hundred students. He then completed a two-year residency in orthodontics and received his Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Minnesota in 2014.
What keeps him on top of his game.
Orthodontics is always changing, Dr. Mueller furthers his expertise through continuing education. He attends conferences, lectures and seminars to ensure his patients are receiving the most advanced care and treatment techniques. He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Midwestern Society of Orthodontists and Omicran Kappa Upsilon (national dental honor society).
How he spends his time.
Dr. Mueller grew up in Grand Rapids and after graduating high school proudly served our country on active duty with the U.S. Marines. He later served as a dental officer in the Minnesota National Guard. Today, Dr. Mueller is excited to be doing what he loves in the Brainerd Lakes Area along with his wife, Chanel and sons, Thomas, Erich and Peter. He loves to get out and lace up the hockey skates and also enjoys snowmobiling, hunting and hanging out at the lake.
