Meet Dr. Evan Ridge
We are very pleased to introduce our newest doctor to Philadelphia Dentistry: Dr. Evan Ridge. Dr. Ridge’s philosophy on dentistry is to deliver the best and highest standard of care just as if he were serving his family.
Dr. Evan Ridge originally aspired to pursue a career in architecture before finding his passion for dentistry. He graduated with honors from the University of Delaware, receiving degrees in Biology and Exercise Physiology. He pursued his DMD at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. While there he was inducted into the Prosthodontics Honors Society and received the Award of Merit from the Academy of Esthetic Dentistry for his excellence in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. After dental school, he completed a highly sought-after general practice residency at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in New York City, where he received advanced training in all areas of dentistry.
Through his warm and engaging demeanor, Dr. Ridge strives to make all of his patients feel comfortable and relaxed. Many patients have told him that, at the end of their visit, they forget they were even in a dentist’s chair!
Dr. Ridge is actively engaged in the dental community through involvement in the New Jersey Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry. He is very passionate about continuing his education. He is very active in Spear Education and attends seminars and monthly study clubs. He also loves building ties to his local community, in part by making educational trips to local elementary schools to teach about dental hygiene. When not working, you’re likely to find Dr. Ridge skiing, hiking, camping, or working on his goal to visit every National Park.
