Meet Dr. Ryan Tamburrino

meet dr ryan tamburrinoFounder & Experienced Orthodontist

To start, I’ll just be honest and say that I might be a bit different than what you may expect from a doctor or dentist. (No, I’m not different in the crazy sense!) As an orthodontist for the Kennett Square and West Chester, PA communities, I feel orthodontics is about more than just creating amazing smiles; it is about forming strong relationships and friendships with the patients, families, dental colleagues, and my community. I want to ensure everyone benefits from the entire orthodontic experience, as well as enjoys beautiful and lasting results!

Beyond that, though, I also believe your orthodontic journey should focus on more than just straight teeth. It’s about letting your confidence grow and your personality shine! It’s about creating a healthy bite for the rest of your life. It’s about realizing there’s a unique human being attached to those 28 teeth!

Therefore, my goals for patients are as follows: ​

  • To shatter preconceived notions of what a healthcare “experience” is or might be!
  • To 100% guarantee your satisfaction with whatever it takes to do so!
  • To give you a radiant smile that fits seamlessly into their lifestyle and affordably into their budget!
  • To have you join me in giving back generously and without hesitation to their communities!
  • To be approachable, honest, and available as a resource for any questions, big or small, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

When speaking to colleagues in lectures or at conferences, my goal is to provide unbiased, objective, practical information in a dynamic way and give the audience take-home tools to implement immediately. We’ve all been to conferences where we’ve heard great information but had no easy way to bring that knowledge home. Similar to my beliefs for my patients, I want to reinvent the way dentists give lectures and present information, not just be their entertainment for the day. Instead of just showing-off a few successes, my goal is to have attendees LEARN something (from both my own successes and failures) to benefit their own patients and practices!

“Wonderful staff … very helpful and answered all of our questions and concerns. Our daughter had a couple of emergencies after hours and the doctors called us personally as well as meeting us at the office to resolve the emergencies. It is rare in this day and age to get this type of service!”

- Julie H.

"Dr. Tamburrino has been great to work with! As an adult in need of braces I was looking for an office that made me feel comfortable and he definitely did. The staff is always friendly, helpful and welcoming. I have broken a bracket or two through my own clumsiness and they have always been able to fit me in to get it fixed right away! My son will need braces in the future and I have no doubt that I will bring him to Dr. T!"

- Lindsay B.

"Dr. T and staff have been a pleasure to work with. My daughter's teeth have turned out beautifully thanks to her hard work and Dr. Ts expertise in his craft. Their hours are super convenient and allowed my daughter not to miss any school or me miss any work. I highly recommend TFO for your orthodontic needs."

- Erin M.

"Super flexible, responsive, and helpful. Highly recommend!"

- Margaret H.

"My family and I just moved to the area (from out of state). My oldest daughter's retainer would not fit after getting her wisdom teeth removed. We were in a pinch, and Dr. Tamburrino went above and beyond to help us out!! They fit us in quickly and resolved our issue even quicker! Could not be more impressed and pleased. Will be taking my younger daughter there as well."
