Meet Dr. Ryan Crowley

Dr. Ryan Crowley

Dr. Crowley grew up in Washington but attended school in Michigan. He received his bachelor’s degree in biology from Kalamazoo College and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Michigan, School of Dentistry. After dental school, he returned to the Pacific Northwest looking for the perfect place to open his practice.  Stanwood called to him because it reminded him of his hometown. 

Dr. Crowley is committed to continuing education and takes many advanced courses each year to enhance his skills to serve the dental care needs of his patients better and provide them with a gentle and comfortable dental experience. He is a member of the American Dental Association and the Washington State Dental Association.  

In his free time, Dr. Crowley enjoys running, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.

Meet the Team




Mari Garcia

Mari Garcia became a Registered Dental Assistant in 2008, after attending Skagit Valley College and Everest College.  She has certification in laser dentistry and Zoom Whitening. Mari fell in love with dentistry after having her wisdom teeth extracted.  She was fascinated by the surgery and wanted to know every detail.  She joined Dr. Crowley’s team in July 2017 and loves every aspect of her job.  She enjoys treating patients and learning about their lives while educating and helping them maintain their prime oral health.  When she isn’t caring for patients, Mari loves playing softball, TRX training, chainmail workouts, hunting, fishing, jiujitsu, playing board games and reading. 




Gail Dennis

Gail has worked in the dental field since 1983 and uses her years of experience to help patients with their billing and insurance needs.  She has trained in insurance billing, HIPPA, RDA and x-rays.  Gail appreciates the long-term friendships she has built with patients and co-workers.  She really enjoys seeing a patient who was once terrified about dental care come in for care and trust her to take care of their needs. 

Gail spends time outside of work with her family, especially her grandbabies and fur babies, riding her Harley, camping, and being outdoors.  She has a deep passion for animal rescue, and even rescued a bearded dragon.  She currently volunteers for the Army National Guard Family Readiness and the Safe Harbor Free Clinic mobile dental unit.  In the past she volunteered for the Noah Animal Rescue and went to Honduras twice with Medical Teams International on dental missions.
