Heights Orthodontics Jersey City
Orthodontist in Jersey City

Meet Ryan Trulby, DDS


Let’s make something beautiful

“Though I grew up in Bergen County, both my parents were born and raised in Hudson County and I have always felt at home here. Visiting family in Union City and North Bergen or munching on a Cubano and moros with my dad after getting my braces tightened are among my favorite memories.

This area is like no place else: an amazing amount of diversity, tight-knit communities, and, of course, the most delicious food (my favorite).

I can speak for the entire team at Heights Ortho when I say we are beyond excited to serve the Jersey City community and beyond. Together we can make beautiful things happen. “

— Dr. Ryan Trulby
Orthodontist, owner of Heights Orthodontics


Dr. Trulby graduated from Rutgers University (R! U!).

He completed his dental and orthodontics training at Columbia University just across the river, where he was chief resident and received awards for graduating at the top of his class.


Ryan continues to be involved at Columbia as an associate orthodontics faculty and secretary of the Columbia Orthodontics Alumni Society.

He’s completed several advanced training courses in Invisalign and a variety of additional topics, always aiming to learn something new every day.

Outside of the office

Dr. Trulby loves to spend time with his partner, Gabriella and son, Elio.

When he’s not transforming smiles, he spends his downtime running the occasional marathon or reading a new book.

He also is (almost) fluent in Spanish and is a die-hard FC Barcelona fan—Visca Barça!

Revolutionizing orthodontics

“There are orthodontists and then there are ORTHODONTISTS. Dr. Trulby did my Invisalign treatment and I couldn’t be happier with the result.

I consider myself a perfectionist and I can easily say that Dr. Trulby’s attention to detail is unmatched. Besides his great work, gracious bedside manner, and wealth of knowledge, Dr. Trulby is revolutionizing the way orthodontics should be approached.”

- Faye F.

Straightforward, honest & professional

“If I had gone to Dr. Trulby in the first place, I could have saved myself years of orthodontic trials with other practices.

I went to Dr. Trulby for a consultation, and he presented me with all of my options and clearly provided the pros and cons of each. I appreciated his knowledge as well as compassion for wanting to get me the best results possible.

He was always straightforward, honest and guided me in the best direction possible. His professionalism was incredible.”
