Dr. Ryan Brown

Dr. Brown family - My Kids' Dentist

Dr. Brown’s top priorities are your child’s comfort and satisfaction. He realizes that children deserve to experience a gentle, positive approach to their dental care, and has worked and trained extensively to build a practice that exceeds your expectations. More than anything, he knows what it means to be a concerned parent.

Dr. Brown was honored with multiple awards while in dental school, most special to him being the Dr. Solomon Averbach Humanitarian Award, which recognized his ability to demonstrate compassionate patient care. After completing his schooling, he remains active in the dental community as a member of the Arizona Dental Association, American Dental Association, and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

Dr. Brown is the only pediatric dentist in the Prescott area honored with the distinguished status of Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry; this nationally recognized status reflects his commitment to scholarship, leadership, and his dedication to giving back to his community. Having practiced dentistry in the quad cities area since 2007, Dr. Brown considers one of the most rewarding parts of his job to be seeing former patients bring their own children into the office to receive the same quality care.

Apart from offering trusted, expert, and effective treatment, Dr. Brown also enjoys being an active part of his community. As a former Roughrider soccer player himself, he currently enjoys volunteering as the Dentist of the Yavapai College Soccer Team. Dr. Brown still enjoys playing and coaching soccer and is very involved in the Yavapai Soccer League. In addition to soccer, he also enjoys participating in humanitarian aid projects.

Throughout his life, he has been fond of spending time in the great outdoors; camping, hiking, and mountain biking are among his favorite pastimes. With a life full of worthwhile projects, he finds his greatest joys come from time spent with his beautiful wife, Krista, and their four children.

After completing her pediatric dental residency, she enjoyed returning to work in sunny Arizona, where she practiced pediatric dentistry in the Phoenix area for two years.

As a mother herself, and an aunt to eight wonderful nieces and nephews, Dr. Courtney has always been interested in working with children. She also has a love of science and earned her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry, as well as a master’s in chemistry.

Dr. Courtney enjoys being involved in the dental community and is a member of both the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists and the American Dental Association. She feels grateful to have found a career that incorporates all the things she loves. The practice of pediatric dentistry fulfills her passion for helping children, as well as her love of science.

Hi! My name is Hannah Young (Peterson); I am one of the My Kids’ Dentist hygienists. If I am not working, you will usually find me outdoors with my family.

I have worked with Dr. Brown as a hygienist here at My Kids’ Dentist since 2009 and love working with the staff and children here! My interest and education in the dental field started in high school when I decided to challenge myself into facing a childhood fear of the dentist and work at a local pediatric/special needs dental office. I enjoy helping children have the best dental experience possible as well as providing oral health education for parents and patients. I look forward to meeting your family and providing a wonderful dental experience!!
