About Dr. Lloyd
Dr. Ryan Lloyd grew up in Seattle, WA, and was first exposed to oral surgery in the Navy while stationed in Everett, WA. During that time, he provided dental services to over 8,000 sailors and Marines and was taken under the wing of one of the oral surgeons on base. He quickly found oral surgery to be an extremely rewarding specialty and knew that he wanted to pursue a career that allowed him to make such a dramatic impact in the lives of his patients.
Dr. Lloyd joined the MOSA Oral Maxillofacial & Dental Implant Surgery team in 2009 and quickly became an integral part of our practice. He loves that oral surgery allows him to provide patients with a solution to a problem that they might have once thought wasn’t possible. Seeing his patient light up with confidence after treatment and smile with ease is one of the best parts of his job. Dr. Lloyd relentlessly pursues perfection in surgical techniques and patient care and wants every patient to know that he will hive 100% every time.
