“Measure twice, cut once” is a woodworking motto Dr. Ryan Sass takes to heart. He believes in proper diagnosis, planning, and patient education before proceeding with any treatment. He understands that dentistry can be confusing and he always wants to be sure everyone has the same expectations before anyone gets a numb lip.
After graduating from Henry Sibley in Mendota Heights Dr. Sass headed north to the University of Minnesota Duluth. While studying Cellular and Molecular Biology he was honored with the Mowbry Scholarship for academics before graduating Cum Laude with his Bachelors of Science degree. He then studied dentistry at the University of Minnesota where in his final year he was selected to study alongside prosthodontic residents. When receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery Dr. Sass was recognized among his peers and received Distinction Honors.
In the years since his graduation he has gained a Fellowship in Implant Dentistry and has completed more than three times the number of educational credits needed to maintain his license. He strives to stay up to date with current treatment to best serve his patients.
Dr. Sass is active in his community and has volunteered with many organizations including Second Harvest Heartland, Ronald McDonald House, and the Union Gospel Mission. He also gives back by donating his time to Give Kids a Smile, a day where children receive free dental care.
Dr. Sass resides in Eagan but is active around the state and enjoys traveling. He is an avid cyclist, fisherman, Minnesota sports fan, and enjoys being active outdoors. In his downtime, he likes to recharge his batteries by trying new restaurants and taprooms around the Twin Cities.
