Ryan started his dentistry career early in 2006 in the British army. After the gruelling but fun basic training he started my trade training with the Royal Army Dental Corps (RADC) at Aldershot Garrison. Although this was not as physically demanding as basic training it was very demanding mentally due to being subjected to exams on a fortnightly basis. He passed out from Aldershot in 2007 and was attached the 2nd Battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.
