Meet the Dentists

Dr. Bushman

Ryan Bushman, DMD

Dr. Ryan Bushman is a Quincy native, and after an undergraduate degree at Eastern Washington University, he earned his dental degree from the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health. Dr. Bushman and his wife chose to plant their roots in the greater Spokane area because of twin loves of family and adventure. The couple’s five kids enjoy being raised close to extended family and to the myriad of outdoor opportunities in the Inland Northwest. They enjoy outdoor activities such as snow skiing, being out on the boat, or just adventuring in general, especially when spending time together. While Dr. Bushman isn’t working, or out adventuring, he is proud to serve in the Army National Guard, Dental Corp. Dr. Bushman is happy to offer his talents to fellow members of the armed forces as he serves in his many capacities as dentist, as well as anyone else who is seeking dental services.

Dr. McDonald

Rachelle McDonald, DDS

Dr. Rachelle McDonald was raised in Ephrata, WA and received bachelor’s degrees in Biology and Chemistry from Eastern Washington University. She went on to dental school at University of Washington, where she was a part of the Regional Initiatives In Dental Education (RIDE) Program. The RIDE program is a specific educational track that trains dentists to meet the needs of rural and underserved populations in the PNW, and Dr. McDonald spent a significant amount of time in rotations in community health area clinics. After graduation, she returned to the Spokane area, where she and her husband Josh now call home. She loves working with the amazing team at Medical Lake Family Dental and serving the wonderful community of Medical Lake!

Garret Buck, DMD

Dr. Garrett Buck was raised in Bellevue, Washington, and has always had a heart for the northwest throughout his life.  Outside of exploring the many hotspots in the greater Seattle area, some of his early hobbies include playing soccer as a midfielder, skateboarding, and playing guitar in a rock band with his friends.  He has also participated in various talent shows with solo guitar performances, placing top 3 in all that he has been a part of.  His passion for music has since led him into studio music production, where he produces music with professional vocalists as his favorite pastime.
Dr. Buck first decided to pursue a career in healthcare in his early college years.  After shadowing several talented dentists, it was clear that dentistry was the perfect match for his personality and artistic passion.  After earning his bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from the University of Washington, he went on to earn his doctorate at Case Western Reserve University School of Dentistry in Cleveland, Ohio.  In 2018, he decided to follow his roots and moved back to Washington State to practice dentistry.  That same year, he met the love of his life, Kamila, and they have since gotten married and had their first beautiful child, Ellie.  Dr. Buck is grateful for the opportunity to serve the Medical Lake community, and looks forward to meeting each new patient.
