Meet Your Westside Orthodontist

Dr. Ryan McComb is a Culver City Orthodontist who lives in sunny Venice Beach, CA

He graduated from Harvard University with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine and went on to complete his Specialty Certificate in Orthodontics at UCLA.

Orthodontics is a passion of Ryan’s. From simple treatments to advanced surgical procedures, his favorite part of practicing orthodontics is assessing an individual and forming a treatment plan.

You’ll find Dr. McComb spending most of his free time active on the beach surfing, playing volleyball, or hanging out with his twin boys. He enjoys meeting new people, preparing Sunday brunch, and having deep conversations about historical fiction novels. Ask him anything about orthodontics, and he’ll be happy to provide an informative and easy to understand answer.

Awards and Honors

With numerous awards and certifications, Dr. McComb has excelled in his orthodontic career. He has spent time with the American Dental Association’s program Give Kids A Smile, providing dental services to underserved children, and contributed to orthodontic research by developing a novel technique for creating normative models of the human skull in 3-dimensions.
