Justin K. Liddle, DMD, CDT, is an exceptional dentist and a specialist in prosthodontics in northern Colorado who also treats in neighboring states. Based in Fort Collins, Dr. Liddle has been delivering attentive and custom-tailored treatment to patients with advanced dental complications since 2010.
The son and nephew of dentists, Dr. Liddle was exposed to the field at a young age. But, as he recalls, his passion for dentistry didn’t arise until he had the opportunity to volunteer with a relief group in South America:
I had worked in my dad’s office in one capacity or another since I was eight years old, so that definitely had a big influence on my career. Then, in South America, I partook in a dental clinic where I was exposed to multiple dental procedures, and I was completely enthralled.
Dr. Liddle earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine at Case Western Reserve University in 2007 and went on to complete his prosthodontics residency at Louisiana State University Health Science Center. During this time, he trained with international leaders in dental aesthetics and implants and earned numerous accolades, such as a tie for first place in the world for the Nobel Biocare Student Case Presentation Award.
Now offering a variety of complex dental treatments—including implants, veneers, and full-mouth reconstructions—to residents of northern Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, and South Dakota, Dr. Liddle has made a name for himself through his personalized attention and customized solutions which are designed to fit every patient’s specific dental needs. No matter the treatment, Dr. Liddle’s goal is simple: to help individuals regain confidence and peace of mind through healthy mouths and beautiful smiles.
As a leader in his specialty, Dr. Liddle maintains a unique vantage point from which to keep himself up to date on current developments in prosthodontics. In particular, he commented on the pros and cons of the quickly-advancing technology:
Technology is changing drastically. In my office, we are moving toward digital impressions and computer-aided restoration designs. This can be extremely beneficial to efficiency and quality of treatment. However, I do walk on eggshells with it, because not everything new and computerized is better. You can lose the personal touch if you use too much technology. My approach is to read the research and evaluate which route and go from there. I always listen to the patient's needs and desires to provide personalized dental care.
Still in the early stages of his career, Dr. Liddle envisions a bright future ahead. Moving forward, he plans to continue expanding his expertise in prosthodontics while maintaining the excellent care for which he has become known. When not treating patients, Dr. Liddle leads instructional courses on prosthodontic procedures and implant dentistry techniques. He is also an avid runner who loves being out in nature, traveling to see the wonders of the world, and spending time with his wife and four daughters.
