Dr. Ryo Hosaka


Hi there! I’m Dr. Hosaka (It’s pronounced like Osaka, the city in Japan, but with an H. Or, if it’s easier, you can call me by my first name Ryo, which is pronounced like the city Rio in Brazil.) I look forward to taking care of you at my dental office.

I grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida, and attended Duke University for undergrad. I am a 2012 graduate of Nova Southeastern College of Dental Medicine in South Florida, where I graduated at the top of my class. I also completed a General Practice Residency at the University of Washington hospital in Seattle, WA.

I enjoy practicing in my small family dental practice because I have the opportunity to meet and care for patients and their family in the Smyrna and surrounding communities. I feel proud of being able to contribute to the health and wellbeing of my patients.

Everyday, I feel blessed and grateful that I can interact with my dental family of wonderful staff and patients. 

In my free time, I like to cook, work on home improvement projects, and lounge around my house with my three cats. Currently though, most of my time at home is dedicated to my wife and newborn daughter. 


Dental Hygienist

Hello, I’m Julie, your friendly neighborhood dental hygienist. Yes, that’s right; I live here in Smyrna. I graduated from Georgia State University with my Registered Dental Hygienist Degree.

I love dentistry because I get to know so many wonderful people while helping them maintain and improve their oral health.

In my pre-dentistry life, I was a professional musical theatre performer. I graduated with a BFA in musical theatre from Wright State University. 

I’m married to my high school sweetheart, Stephen, and we have three wonderful children. 


Dental Hygienist

HI! I’m Kathy, and I’m your dental hygienist at Hosaka Family Dental. I’m a Georgia native, and my hometown is Smyrna.  

My favorite thing about dentistry is helping people feel better about their smiles and encouraging patients to feel more at ease about coming to the dentist (at least that’s my goal!). The best thing about our practice is the small, family-oriented feel of the office and our wonderful patients!  

Fun facts about me are that I love running, spending time with family, and traveling.


Patient Care Coordinator

Hello, I’m Ana, and I’m usually the first face you’ll meet when you come in. I was born and raised in Atlanta. 

I love that there is always something new to learn in dentistry. The fact that the mouth is more than just a mouth full of teeth amazes me. Everyone is so unique in their own way; we all have our own unique smiles. 

The best thing about our practice is that everyone, including the patients, are like a big family. Everyone gets treated in an extremely friendly way. It’s such an amazing environment to be able to experience each and every day. 

Outside of the office, I enjoy the outdoors, especially anything that involves being with pets. I’m a huge animal lover. I have six dogs if that doesn’t say enough, haha.


Dental Assistant

Hi! I’m Chandler! I have a certificate in dental assisting. I’m born and raised in Georgia my whole life.

My favorite part of dentistry is helping people feel more confident in themselves and making them feel comfortable while they are in the office. I love my dental office because of the small, family-like environment that I get to share with my co-workers and our awesome patients.

Fun facts about myself are that I love hanging out with my friends on the weekends, shopping, and having fun. 

A healthy smile is just a click away.
