B. Ryan Fleming, DDS
Meet Dr. Ryan
Dr. Benjamin “Ryan” Fleming moved to Charleston, SC in 2010 after practicing in Columbus, Ohio. While visiting his wife’s uncle in Fort Mill, Dr. Fleming and his wife/marketing director Michelle Fleming decided to take a weekend trip to Charleston. Dr. Fleming and Michelle instantly fell in love with the charm and hospitality of the city and on that trip made the decision to relocate to the low country.
After graduating from Ohio Dominican University Magna Cum Laude in 2002, Dr. Fleming attended “The” Ohio State University College of Dentistry graduating in 2007 and obtaining his IV sedation certification along the way.
Dr. Fleming is a member of the ADA, SCDA, AGD, AAOP, AACD and is faculty trainer/lecturer for the American Academy of Facial Esthetics (AAFE), spending two weekends a month lecturing/training other dentists, MDs, nurse practitioners and nurses on the proper esthetic use of BOTOX® and fillers as well as the proper use of trigger point therapy for head and neck pain including the use of BOTOX® for migraine therapy.
In 2015, Dr. Fleming also began training fellow practitioners in the placement of implants. Dr. Fleming has been placing implants since 2007 and takes great pride in helping others becoming proficient as well. Currently, Dr. Fleming focuses on therapeutic application of toxins as well as full facial esthetics. He also enjoys full mouth rehabilitation in patients that have had failed treatment in the past and due to this are now limited in their treatment options.
Dr. Fleming works closely with a large ENT group in Charleston for the treatment of TMJ disorders and associated migraines with a large pool of his pain patients being referred by their group. Dr. Fleming has taken over 200 hours of continuing education in the last two years on BOTOX® and filler treatment as well as the use of laser therapy for pain management.
Dr. Fleming is one of very few to include the use of the Viora ST V20 for use on fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth as well as skin tightening around the “jowl” area that pulls the corners of the mouth down. Dr. Fleming is highly trained in the use of BOTOX®/fillers in the Nefertiti face lift helping to complete the beautiful smile. At this time, research is being performed on the effectiveness of Kybella vs RF technology in mental fat reduction.
His own personal story for the use of BOTOX® was published in the AGD impact magazine by Dr. Louis Malcmacher. He has also authored an article on the use of Hyaluronidase in correction/emergency situations.
Outside of the dental field, Dr. Fleming enjoys mountain biking, climbing, skiing, golfing and most importantly, Ohio State football.
