    Meet Your Orthodontist:

    Skyler J. Liatti, DDS, MS

    Dr. Liatti was driven to orthodontics through his own personal experience with braces and jaw surgery as a young adult. Experiencing the life-changing effect of having a confident smile impassioned him to pursue a career where he could give that same gift to others.


    During dental school Dr. Liatti traveled to Nicaragua on a mission trip to provide dental treatment to the impoverished and underserved. After dental school, Dr. Liatti practiced general dentistry for one year before completing his Master’s of Science degree in Orthodontics at the Loma Linda University graduate orthodontic program, where he conducted original research on the biomechanics of orthodontic tooth movement with modern orthodontic wires. Dr. Liatti also has two published articles in the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists Bulletin. Dr. Liatti is a Board Certified Orthodontist, an achievement attained by only 1/3 of practicing orthodontic specialists.


    Dr. Liatti was born and raised right here in Southern California. Dr. Liatti loves to be outdoors and enjoys dirt biking, hiking, kayaking, and camping. However, music is his number one passion and he has been playing the drums for 20 years. When he isn’t creating amazing smiles you might find him at a live music performance, at the lake with his family, or on an outdoor adventure.


    “I love orthodontics and am very fortunate to have the opportunity to meet amazing families and give them something that will positively impact every facet of their lives: a beautiful and healthy smile.”


    – Dr. Liatti

    Treatment Coordinator

    I was born and raised in Southern California and spent my summers at Newport Beach. I am a Registered Dental Assitant and have been in ortho for 20+ years. My husband and I took an adventure and moved to Idaho for 5 years and then it was time to home back to be close to family and take walks on the beach. On the weekend I enjoy painting, quilting, and most of all gardening.”
