Ryan Swigert, DDS:

Dr. Ryan Swigert graduated from Dental School in Richmond, Virginia, at Virginia Commonwealth University. An Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honors Society inductee and recipient of the Horace Wells Award by the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, he then went on to complete an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Dr. Swigert finds true joy in serving his referring doctors and patients in his Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery private practice, River Rock Oral Surgery, which serves the Tri-State area.

Dr. Swigert has a love of learning and teaching and currently runs the River Rock Oral Surgery Study Club where members enjoy learning about the “how’s” and “why’s” of dentistry and overall patient care.

When not practicing Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Swigert most enjoys time with his wife, three children, and 12 tortoises. He is an avid cellist and currently plays on a cello made in 1781 by renowned luthier William Forster. He loves to torture his son (learning cello) and two daughters (learning violin and piano) by forcing them to practice and perform with him and his wife (a violinist).
