Ryan Siciliano

I am currently a second year dental student at McGill. I have previously completed a B.Sc (physiology and math, 2012) and a B.A. (computer science, 2014) at McGill. During this time I have been involved in many different community initiatives, but the McGill Dental Outreach has been the most personally rewarding and stimulating. I was born in Montreal, but I grew up in Whitby, Ontario. During the winter I snowboard and play hockey and during the summer I enjoy soccer and biking. My favorite year-round past time is playing squash.
