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
Dr. Liatti and Encinitas Orthodontics are nothing short of a miracle!
"Dr. Liatti and Encintas Orthodontics are nothing short of a miracle! Imagine having your son’s retainer break the day before vacation. Texted Dr. Liatti. Like the amazing orthodontist he is, he found us an orthodontist in Lahaina, Maui, and arranged for imaging the very next day! Then he mailed the new retainer to our hotel! Talk about superior service! Seriously, Encintas Orthodontics with Drs. Liatti and Chenard have served our family so well for over 3 years and our we couldn’t be happier. Definitely recommend!"

The team themselves has made the braces process so simple and straightforward; the breakdowns and simplifications of what is happening during and after make you feel reassured.
