Sensitive and Reliable Dental Care from a Team You Can Trust.

Dr. Ryan Kay, DMD, MS, FICOI


Growing up around dentistry, I knew at an early age that I wanted to be a dentist. After graduating from the University of San Diego, I went on to study at Western University of Health Sciences where I earned both my Masters in Medical Science and Doctorate of Dental Medicine. I think you’ll find me not only to be a kind and compassionate person, you’ll always find me to have a friendly smile and gentle touch. 

I was awarded a fellowship by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists due to numerous hours of advanced training and experience with dental implants. I am also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, San Diego County Dental Society, American Academy of Implant Dentistry, as well as Spear and sdCAD/CAM Dentists Study Clubs where I continue to learn and fuel my passion for dentistry and technology.  I am always taking continuing education to further the care I can provide for you.  I’m trained and certified in Oral Conscious Sedation and Invisalign.  I am proud to be a clinical product reviewer for the Clinician’s Report that is read by thousands of dentists across the country each month.

I live here in Encinitas with my wife Katie, daughter Maren, and our dog Indie. When not in the office you can find me at the beach or snowboarding in the mountains, I also really enjoy golf, tennis, and baseball.  I look forward to taking care of you the way I would members of my own family for decades to come!

I've consistently received great care in this practice for the past 15 years. I just had a crown done by Dr. Kay. All went well! There was no discomfort and I'm very happy with the result.
