Dr. Ripley's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ripley "A Love for Orthodontics Working with so many incredible people, especially my younger patients, keeps me young at heart. I watch each person mature and blossom through treatment and beyond. Whether I’m seeing a shy child develop self-esteem, or an adult receive the smile they’ve dreamed about for years, I’m making a difference in the lives of people I care about. Orthodontics is professionally and personally rewarding. I love the challenge of creating the best smile and face I can for each of my patients. Each person is unique. While they come to me with the same desired result, I have to find the ideal treatment approach for each person’s specific needs. It’s a pleasure to be continually thinking and using my knowledge and experience to help others.

My wife, Ruanne and I met at Indiana University and we have been married for 29 years. We have two incredible adult human children, Christina and Daniel. Our third child, Phoebe, is a Golden Retriever and has the “most favored status” of everyone in the family.
