Meet Dr. Courtin

Ryan C. Courtin, D.D.S.

A Bay Area native, Dr. Courtin was raised in Foster City and attended San Mateo High School, where he was active in the theater program. He received his bachelor's degree in Biology with a minor in Theater at UCLA. After graduating, he returned to the Bay Area and worked in cancer research at UCSF before finding his calling in dentistry. He attended the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry, where he is now a member of the faculty as a pre-clinical instructor.

In his spare time, Dr. Courtin enjoys singing, snowboarding, and scuba diving. His wife, Ashley, shares his passion for dentistry. She works as a dental hygienist in San Francisco. They first met while attending Bowditch Middle School in Foster City. They have a daughter who they hope will go into dentistry one day too!

During dental school, Dr. Courtin led mission trips to Jamaica. There, his team provided much-needed dental care to patients in rural areas with no access to dentists. He is very passionate about giving back both locally and abroad. He has volunteered for many community events, including CDA Cares. Every year, he and his wife travel to Mexico with Flying Doctors of Mercy to provide dental aid to those in need.
