Ryan J. Everhart, D.D.S.

Dr. Ryan Everhart is a local to the Sierra foothills. He grew up in Roseville, Folsom, and El Dorado Hills and it has always been his wish to return to the foothills to live, work, and play. He is so grateful now to have fulfilled his personal and professional aspirations. Dr. Everhart’s goal is to provide personalized care with attention to detail at every step. He strives to ensure that his patients are comfortable and feel welcomed at our office.

Dr. Everhart enjoys the variety of procedures that dentistry has to offer. He has a special interest in dental surgery, including placing dental implants and wisdom teeth extraction. In addition, Dr. Ryan loves doing cosmetic transformations using porcelain veneers, crowns, and bonding.

In his leisure time, Dr. Everhart enjoys activities with his daughter and two sons. You can find him boating on Folsom Lake (when there is water of course!), skiing at Lake Tahoe, scuba diving, traveling, soccer, and his favorite hobby - photography. Our patients always enjoy seeing his latest artwork in each operatory when they visit.


Dr. Everhart completed his undergraduate training at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. While at Cal Poly, he earned both a Bachelor and Masters degree in Computer Science. His Master's thesis paper explored his research on enhancing digital dental radiography and Dr. Everhart is proud to say it now sits on the shelf in the school library.

He continued on to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. He was inducted into the Tau Kappa Omega Honors Society upon graduation. Tau Kappa Omega, an honor society in dentistry, was organized at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1927 for promotion of honor and service to the alma mater. Students are admitted on the basis of ideals, scholarship and character.

Dr. Everhart maintains his skillset by enrolling in a variety of continuing education courses every year. He also meets with a Spear Education Study Club every month to discuss and present challenging treatment cases to a panel of local dentists and specialists.
