Meet Founder, Dr. Brian Fryar
About Our Doctor
Brian Fryar, DDS, MSD
When asked why I chose to be an orthodontist I respond by saying that wasn’t my first choice. Instead, I say when I was a young boy I was totally immersed in the NASA space program, specifically the moon landing missions. When reaching high school, and I grew to over 6 feet tall, reality set in and realized I was not able to be an astronaut I began to focus on a more realistic career path.
It was during high school I spent many hours shadowing and working for my dad, Dr. Gene Fryar in his Michigan City orthodontic office. I know everyone has an opinion of the “perfect” career and for me, this was it. I am very blessed and appreciative of what I get to do every day, which is to create beautiful smiles throughout Michiana…what a job!
After college at Indiana University, I was fortunate to be accepted to Indiana University School of Dentistry receiving my dental and orthodontic training there. It was there in dental school that I met the one and only love of my life, Dr. Margaret Fox. We have 2 wonderful daughters, Lauren and Anne. I am an avid competitive cyclist, enjoy hunting in the Fall, as well as pursuing a passion for classic cars.
Dr. John Klooster originally formed our practice, Laporte Orthodontics, in 1973. I joined Laporte Orthodontics in 1989 as an associate and took over as the owner when Dr. Klooster retired in 1990. In the first part of 2006, I began the process of transitioning into the Michigan City office of my retiring father, Dr. Gene Fryar.
Orthodontics is a constantly evolving and exciting field. At Fryar Orthodontics, we truly believe we have an obligation to provide our patients with the safest and most advanced treatment options available. This is not something that is learned once but an ongoing learning process with continuing education and a lifelong pursuit to be the best at what we do. These aspirations help us to give our patients individualized treatment geared for the most healthy and efficient path towards a beautiful smile.
