Bio

Ryan L. Mendro, D.D.S., M.S., recognizes the importance of restoring smiles to their optimal health and function. He is a periodontist, a dentist who is uniquely trained and specializes in the treatment of periodontal (gum) diseases and the placement of dental implants. Dr. Mendro is also a certified provider for the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). LANAP is an alternative to traditional gum surgery which is completed with a laser and does not requires any scalpel incisions or stitches. A Florida native, Dr. Mendro received his bachelor’s in nutrition from the University of Florida. He received his Doctor of Dental Science from Columbia University in New York. He then returned to UF, where he completed his periodontics residency, Master of Science and training in intravenous and oral sedation. Dr. Mendro is a published author and teaches periodontics at the University of Florida as a courtesy faculty member. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. Dr. Mendro is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art treatment in a warm and relaxed atmosphere. His office accepts most dental insurance plans and offers several flexible financing options.
