Early in his life, Dr. Liston knew he wanted to be a professional in something. In junior high school he thought seriously about becoming a physician. In high school he was involved heavily in debate and seriously considered law as a profession. However, while serving an ecclesiastical mission in Japan, he noticed the poor oral condition of the people and felt he could make a difference by using his hands and scholastic skills as a dentist. While in dental school, he found out that the profession of oral and maxillofacial surgery was a perfect fit between medicine and dentistry. He pursued that course and has never looked back.
Dr. Todd Liston received his bachelor’s degree from Weber State University, his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Virginia Commonwealth University/Medical College of Virginia and completed a four-year oral and maxillofacial surgical residency training program at The Ohio State University. He also passed a thorough written qualifying examination and rigorous oral certifying examination to become board certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Through continuous continuing education and recertification, Dr. Liston has maintained his current board certification recognizing the highest status of professional training in his specialty.
Dr. Liston practices much of the scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery including, removal of wisdom teeth, placement of dental implants, bone grafting, soft tissue (gum) grafting, correction of facial and mouth deformities and trauma as well as pathology. He provides all levels of anesthesia, from local to general, allowing for maximal patient comfort. In order to accommodate his patients, he has hospital privileges at McKay Dee, Ogden Regional Medical Center, and Lakeview.
Aesthetic reconstruction of areas of missing teeth has been a been a passion of Dr. Liston. This desire has led him to be instrumental in the innovation and development of Gingival Cuff Links system which provides the dentist with the ability to preserve and perfect the way the gum tissue forms around the dental implant. This has brought a new and exciting dimension to the dental profession.
Providing education and service has been part of Dr. Liston’s life. He has lectured locally and nationally on numerous surgical subjects, especially implant dentistry. The Liston family has provided service here at home and throughout the world. They have been active for years in the development and perpetuation of a Dental/Medical clinic in Northern Mexico. Dr. Liston loves the profession of oral and maxillofacial surgery and excited to see you, getting to know you and assisting you in your care.
