About the Speakers: 

RyazAnsariRyaz Ansari, DDS - Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon

Dr. Ansari is a board-certified Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon. He is the founder of JawFixers, a brand developed to pursue his vision to bring proven cutting-edge, technology-driven, oral surgery to our growing population. Along with his partner Dr. Joel Rosenlicht, their practice was one of the first in Connecticut to adopt cone beam technology for oral surgery. They used that as a platform to launch into guided surgery, the mainstay of their implant practice today. Among other innovations, their practice was one of the first to implement navigational systems for implant surgery i.e. the X-nav. Most recently Dr. Ansari became the first surgeon in Connecticut to place a dental implant using advanced robotic technology i.e. YOMI and was featured in Hartford Magazine’s Top Dentists issue last year. Over the past few years, the JawFixers brand has scaled to four locations around the Hartford area and 5 surgeons. Dr. Ansari credits this expansion to his interest in the entrepreneurial mindset and his decade-long affiliation with EO (Entrepreneurs Organization). He wants to position the JawFixers brand optimally for the changing and challenging dental landscape. His practice philosophy is focused on interdisciplinary care and continuing education. The practice runs two affiliate Spear Study Clubs and a Seattle Study Club for dentists and specialists. Together with CTValley Orthodontics, they have delivered educational content to local hygienists for over 10 years via their Interdisciplinary programs.

AdamDanielsAdam Daniels, DDS, MS - Orthodontist

Dr. Daniels owns a highly successful Orthodontic practice in Vernon, CT. Born in Flint, Michigan, he attended Michigan State University for his undergraduate degree prior to getting his DDS from the University of Michigan Dental School. During dental school, he witnessed the Dot-com bubble burst of 2000 and Michigan’s automotive industry collapse of 2001. Both wreaked havoc on Michigan’s economy leading to a midwestern recession. Knowing that he needed to settle in a community with greater opportunity, he and his husband moved to Connecticut after finishing his Masters Degree in Othodontics at the University of Michigan in 2003. Dr. Daniels worked as an associate for 2 years in a multi-office Orthodontic company then made the move to purchase his own practice 13 years ago. Since then, his business skills coupled with high quality Orthodontics have served him well exponentially growing his practice and eventually adding an associate 5 years ago. His practice is one of the highest producing Invisalign practices in Connecticut at Diamond Plus status and he regularly tackles extremely difficult cases to stay stimulated and challenged. Dr. Daniels not only loves Orthodontics, but spends a considerable amount of time enjoying life. He’s traveled to nearly 70 countries, all 50 states and led mission trips that he organized in Guatemala on multiple occasions. His husband and he have recently joined forces to start an Airbnb business with five current waterfront rental properties and more to come. He is an avid triathlete, loves volleyball, skiing and spending time goofing around with his 6-year-old son. To read more about Dr. Daniels please visit www.ctvalleyortho.com.
