Dr. Ryan Langel was raised on a farm in rural Le Mars, Iowa, the Ice Cream Capitol of the World. In 2011, he graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in agriculture and then returned to Le Mars where he worked on his family farm with his father. After 7 years of farming, he decided on a career change to focus on his passion of dentistry.
Dr. Langel graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry. He found a passion for dentistry through his own oral health, finding that the health of the oral cavity is vitally important to the health of the person. Dr. Langel enjoys providing a calm, comfortable, and friendly experience for his patients, all while improving their overall health and creating a beautiful smile. He says that building a relationship with his patients is one of the great things about being a dentist.
Dr. Langel and his wife, Diana, are excited to be back in the Des Moines area where they are closer to family and friends, and certainly the Cyclones. Outside of work, Dr. Langel loves spending time with his wife and daughter, traveling, and catching a good show or movie on Netflix.
"Dr. Ruisch and his staff are rock stars. My husband and I have been patients for years, and we bring our three children to this office as well. All five of us receive five-star care. We have received exceptional service and kind attention, both during regular checkups and during more complicated procedures. Dr. Ruisch is a fantastic dentist, and his staff are so welcoming and caring. I highly recommend Westgate Dental Care for patients of all ages."
