Dr. Ryan E. Gile joined the Hadlock Dental Center in November of 2016. Dr. Gile says his ultimate goal is to make each patient feel valued through compassionate and excellent care. He promises to listen to your needs, answer any questions, and provide you with the best information so that you can determine what treatments suit you best.
Dr. Gile was born in Hawaii and grew up in Redmond, WA. He received his Bachelor’s degrees in both physics and chemistry from Central Washington University. Following graduation he moved to the San Juan Islands, and for the next six years worked in research at the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Labs. He and his family relocated to San Francisco where Dr. Gileattended graduate school in Biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco. After three more years of research, Dr. Gile realized he wanted to help people more directly. He wanted the people he saw with his own eyes to be the same people he helped with his own hands – in short, he wanted to become a dentist.
In May of 2015, Dr. Gile earned his Doctorate degree from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in Loma Linda, California. He chose LLU because of its excellent clinical reputation and its emphasis on serving others. Throughout his dental education Dr. Gile has participated in numerous humanitarian projects delivering free dentistry to the underserved in his local community and internationally.
Dr. Gile genuinely cares about his patients and thinks it’s an honor to help them reach better oral health. His sense of humor has proved to be comforting for patients who are hesitant about being in the dental office. Having two young kids has provided Dr. Gile with the exact skills he needs to communicate with children, which creates a very positive first appointment. He thinks dentistry is an exciting field and loves to learn new ways of improving his patient’s oral health.
Dr. Gile is very excited to be back in the Pacific Northwest because it is so beautiful and it is the same place where he fell in love with his wife, Alana. Together they have two precious young children. Dr. Gile and his wife love to go on hikes in the mountains and runs in the forests, and to surf/scuba dive/swim in the ocean. Port Hadlock is a wonderful fit because of the limitless outdoor activities available and the small town community in which he and his wife desire to raise their children.
