We all chose to spend our lives working on smiles and learning new treatments to improve your orthodontic experience. We enjoy helping our patients achieve their best smile; so we spend most of our day trying to get you smiling. Jokes are the fastest way to see our patients smile, so we let them fly all the time around the office.


Dr. Ryan Rudd

Dr. Ryan Rudd was born in Tokyo, Japan. He spent the first ten years of his life living on the island of Okinawa until his family moved to Spokane. It was there that he fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. After spending several years in Southern California, for school and work, Dr. Rudd was thrilled to have the opportunity to return to Washington and work with Dr. Dana Shaltry in Port Angeles. 

Dr. Rudd attended La Sierra University for college and Loma Linda University for dental school and his orthodontic residency. 

He spends as much of his free time as possible with his family, enjoying the amazing outdoor activities around the peninsula.  On special days, you can find him looking foolish playing basketball, tennis, golf, softball, or just about any other competitive venture.
