Ryan Falke, DDS has a unique background, equipping him to provide outstanding oral and facial surgery within an atmosphere of Compassion, Comfort, and Expertise. He earned a computer engineering degree from Brigham Young University, publishing in the field of autonomous robotics.
After working as a network engineer, he moved his family to Southern California to pursue his love for dentistry at Loma Linda University, earning a doctorate in dental surgery. He then practiced as a general dentist in the greater Sacramento area for a year. Desiring to specialize, he returned to Loma Linda to complete an Oral and Maxillofacial surgery residency. He enjoyed an extensive and robust training experience there, qualifying him to provide excellent and comprehensive face, mouth, and jaw surgery.
On a personal note, Dr. Falke is happily married with four children ranging in ages from two to seven years old. They love hiking in the nearby mountains, visiting beautiful parks in Reno, and riding bikes together.
Falke received his training in oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California. Working at the only level-one trauma center in the entire Inland Empire and under the tutelage of the renowned Dr. Alan Herford, Dr. Falke received extensive training experience.
This includes being proficient in the most technologically-advanced methods not only for wisdom tooth removal and dental implants but for corrective jaw surgery, facial trauma, facial reconstruction, and facial cosmetics.
During his time at Loma Linda, Dr. Falke conducted research in the field of bone regeneration and bone grafting, which enhances his success in placing dental implants. Dr. Falke is well-equipped to practice comprehensive oral and facial surgery.
Currently, I am excited to be involved with the Reno Adopt-A-Vet program, Where I can give needed dental care to our local veterans. Since my youth, I have been actively involved in helping others.
I was raised in a family where service was a number one priority. For instance, my family helped build a neighborhood park that has become a place of relaxation and fun for families for over 25 years. Also, as an Eagle Scout, I had many opportunities to serve my community. I led a book drive for troops stationed in Iraq, collecting hundreds of books.
My love for service was further ignited when I spent two years in the impoverished city of Tijuana, Mexico. There, I learned to love the people, became fluent in Spanish, but most importantly, relearned the importance of people over things.
Through this experience, I committed to giving back whenever I can. I have realized part of this desire through my active involvement in Flying Doctors and Share a Smile – two organizations that give back through the field of dentistry.
I am happy to be settled in Reno with my wife and four children. It has been my dream to operate my own practice, centered around treating people with Compassion, Comfort, and Expertise in a place I am proud to call home.
After visiting numerous locations, my wife and I fell in love with the mountains, nearby skiing, local hiking, and the good people of Reno. We enjoy most things outdoors, but in particular, I love golfing, hiking, snow-skiing, playing racquetball, and geocaching.
On most weekends, I can be found exploring the area with my kids or enjoying date night with my wife, Stephanie.
