Meet the Doctors
The husband and wife team changing dentistry in Baton Rouge for the better.
Dr. Dustin Kidder
Dr. Dustin grew up in Baton Rouge, LA. He graduated from Parkview Baptist School, LSU and the LSU School of Dentistry. Upon graduation from LSUSD in 2008, he immediately joined the practice of Dr. Shep Platt. In 2017, the office welcomed his wife, Dr. Elizabeth (Liz) Kidder, as a new partner. At the end of 2017, it was bittersweet to see Dr. Platt retire but then exciting for him to transition from one partner to another.
Dr. Dustin is a member of a number of esteemed dental organizations:
He is also a member of the Capital Study Club, a local affiliate of the Seattle Study Club. He’s proud to say he’s averaged over 100 hours of continuing education each year since graduation, which is over five times the amount required for licensure.
In his free time, Dr. Dustin enjoys hanging out with Liz, their two goldens, Bear and Leo, and family and friends. He loves sports – especially anything related to LSU (Geaux Tigers!). He also enjoys cooking, traveling, and playing sand volleyball.
Dr. Dustin Kidder is thrilled to have welcomed his son, Sam, into the world in February.
Love Dr. Kidder and the staff! All very professional and courteous.

Dr. Elizabeth Kidder
Dr. Elizabeth “Liz” Kidder grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and attended Marquette University for her undergraduate studies. She graduated from The University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 2006 and completed a one-year residency in general dentistry at the VA hospital in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
After practicing for ten years, Dr. Liz sold her practice in Minnesota and moved to Baton Rouge to be with her husband, Dr. Dustin Kidder. Dr. Liz is a member of a number of dental organizations:
She is also a member of the Capital Study Club, a local group of dentists and dental specialists that meet monthly for continuing education and fellowship. Their mantra is excellence in clinical dentistry and growth through collaboration. She is a visiting faculty member for the LD Pankey Institute, a non-profit organization committed to the continuing education of dentists focusing on relationship-based, comprehensive dentistry, and speaks at dental meetings around the country on various topics including esthetic dentistry, sleep-disordered breathing and helping young dentists define their goals and career paths.
In her free time, Dr. Liz enjoys running and has completed ten marathons. She enjoys playing golf, and cheers for all LSU sports, but still loves her Minnesota Vikings. She also loves trying out new Cajun recipes with Dustin, spending time with their two golden retrievers, Bear and Leo, and visiting their favorite vacation spot—her family’s cabin in Northern Wisconsin.
Dr. Elizabeth Kidder has recently welcomed a new edition to the Kidder Dental family. Her new son, Sam, was born in February.
