Our Team

Dr. Ryan Mueller, D.M.D.

Dr Mueller and his wife, Lindsey, moved to Buena Vista in 2006.  Originally from St. Louis, Dr. Mueller attended dental school at Southern Illinois University.  He graduated with honors and practiced for two years in St. Louis before realizing the dream of moving to a mountain town. 

After graduation, he pursued extensive hands on training in implant surgical placement and restorations.  Additionally, he attended many hours of training learning esthetic techniques through the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He has dedicated himself to ongoing continuing education to stay up to date with the latest treatments and materials.  Annually he greatly exceeds the mandated continuing education requirement for the state and the CDA. 

On a personal level, Dr Mueller is an avid rock climber and lover of camping.  He and Lindsey are proud of their two daughters, Ava and Greta, and have been grateful to have been able to raise their daughters in this incredible community.
