Ryan T. Beelman, DMD
Dr. Ryan Beelman was born and raised in Waterloo, Illinois, and moved to the DFW area with his wife Aryn about five years ago. They are thrilled to call Bedford, Texas home.
Prior to attending school, Dr. Beelman worked in a dental laboratory. Dr. Beelman attended an accelerated Bachelor of Science/Doctor of Dental Medicine program at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, completing both degrees in 7 years rather than the usual 8 and graduating magna cum laude with his DMD degree in 2014. He is committed to continuing education and has completed additional courses in Invisalign®, oral sedation, sleep dentistry and the 2015-2016 Las Vegas AAID Maxicourse in Implant Dentistry, which incorporated a 300-hour continuing education (CE) program covering all aspects of implant dentistry from implant placement to crown restoration. He has been practicing dentistry since receiving his doctorate and purchased Dr. Michael Bell’s practice at the beginning of 2018. His professional memberships include:
Dr. Beelman loves many different aspects of dentistry, but his two favorite things to do are to help patients overcome their fears about coming to the dentist and giving patients the confidence to smile. Patient comfort is of extreme importance to him. He says: “There is no better feeling than finishing up a cosmetic or Invisalign case and seeing the patient’s first reaction when they look in the mirror.”
Dr. Beelman considers his family both his support and his motivation. He was the first person in his family to graduate college and feels that he could not have achieved his success without the love and support of his family. His wife, Aryn, is a registered nurse and is studying towards her Master’s in Nursing Education. They recently welcomed a beautiful daughter into the world and are so blessed. Dr. Beelman’s younger brother Todd, an engineer for Lockheed Martin, lives in nearby Fort Worth.
In his spare time, Dr. Beelman enjoys an active lifestyle. He and Aryn enjoy golfing, playing tennis, and running in local races. They also enjoy traveling, with one of their favorite trips being Thailand for their honeymoon.
