Meet Our Team
Dr. Ryan McCall
Dr. Ryan McCall, or "Dr. Ryan" as he is known to our patients, is a Geneva native who has strong ties to the tri-cities communities.
He attended Illinois State University and earned his bachelor’s degree in Chemistry. Although studying the periodic table provided hours of entertainment, he knew he had to try his hand at something that would allow him to give back to the community. He decided to follow in his father’s footsteps.
Dr. Ryan moved back to the big city, where he earned his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Illinois: College of Dentistry. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Ryan decided he wanted a taste of the Northwest, so he packed up his bags and moved to Portland, OR. While there, he completed a general practice hospital residency at the VAMC in 2005 and provided dental care for a large group practice in the area. After three years of enjoying mountaintop views and hiking through the great outdoors, Dr. Ryan decided to return to Geneva to provide dentistry for the community in which he was raised.
Dr. Ryan continues to learn about the latest developments in dentistry through continuing education courses. He’s invested many hours learning from some of the most renowned doctors in the industry including Dr. Frank Spear, Dr. Gordon Christensen, and Dr. Peter Dawson. Learning advanced skills and techniques allow him to offer a level of service to his patients you will not find at most practices. He is also Invisalign certified, and a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Dental Association, and Illinois State Dental Society.
Like his father, Dr. Ryan plays guitar and has a passion for music. He is still awaiting the reunion of his high school band, Natural Disaster. He currently resides in Geneva with his wife, Lindsey; daughter, Lyla; and son, Sidney.
Dr. James McCall
Dr. James McCall, or "Dr. Jim," graduated from Loyola University School of Dentistry in 1969 and completed an internship in hospital dentistry at Florida State University. He earned a graduate degree in prosthodontics from Loyola University two years later and taught clinical dentistry to dental students at the University of Illinois Dental School for the next seven years.
Dr. Jim has been in his current location for over ten years and has been providing dentistry for Geneva residents since 1977. Dr. Jim is the proud father of four sons and grandfather of thirteen grandchildren. He enjoys playing guitar in his rock band, snowmobiling, and spending time with his family.
