A Kansas boy born and raised, Dr. Brittingham attended Kansas University where he earned a B.A. in Human Biology in 1995. He then attended Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, Nebraska 2001. After graduating he returned to Lawrence, Kansas and started a general practice. Dr. Brittingham is passionate about dentistry and how it can change lives. Dr. Brittingham's belief is that every person deserves to have the best dentistry the world has to offer and this attitude is shown in all he offers to his patients.
Dr. Brittingham is committed to learning, continually growing his dental knowledge to keep his practice on the cutting edge. Currently he is focused on understanding the effects of Occlusal (bite) disease on form and function of the oral environment. There is no "cookbook" dentistry done at Legends Dental. The other area of excitement for Dr. Brittingham is dental implants and all the procedures associated with them. Dentures can change someone's life... for the better. Dr. Brittingham and his team can show you how. No matter what your needs are, it will be done in a way that will enhance each person's ability to reach stability, beauty, and predictability for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
The other passion in Dr. Brittingham's life is his family. He married his high school sweetheart, Kellie, whom he has known since he was 5 years old. They have 3 children, daughter Paxton, and sons Jaydon and Maddon. They all love to spend time outdoors camping, hiking, boating, hunting, fishing, and just about anything else a boy from Kansas loves to do. Kellie and Ryan love to travel. They make sure to fit in "couples" time away from the kids and the practice to re-charge. Dr. Brittingham is also committed to participating at school events, coaching, and church activities. This allows him to express the importance of being present in his childrens' lives. In addition to his family, Dr. Brittingham has contributed time or money to: Veritas Christian School, Big Brothers and Sisters of Lawrence, Dog Days, VanGogh Arts, the Lied Center, Lawrence Memorial Hospital, the Lawrence Schools Foundation, the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce, and several more.
