Dr. Ryan Beelman was born and raised in Waterloo, Illinois, and moved to the DFW area with his wife Aryn six years ago. They are thrilled to call Bedford, Texas home.
Prior to attending school, Dr. Beelman worked in a dental laboratory and fell in love with dentistry. 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 continued 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 completed an advanced course that focused on sinus augmentation at the time of implant surgery and received a certificate of Master Course Surgery from Hiossen Implants. In 2021, Invisalign awarded Dr. Beelman as a “Gold Invisalign Provider.”
He has been practicing dentistry since receiving his doctorate and purchased Dr. Michael Bell’s practice in January 2018. His professional memberships include:
- American Dental Association
- American Academy of Implant Dentistry
- Texas Dental Association
- Fort Worth District Dental Society
- Omicron Kappa Upsilon
Dr. Beelman loves many different aspects of dentistry, but his two favorite procedures are Invisalign and implants. These highly advanced procedures result in life-changing smiles for his patients.
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 recently graduated with her Master’s in Nursing Education from the University of Texas-Arlington. They have 2 beautiful daughters that bring so much joy to their lives. Dr. Beelman’s younger brother Todd, an engineer for Lockheed Martin, lives nearby in 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.
