Dr. Justin Nylund is committed to giving every patient the dental experience he would want himself. He had several bad dental experiences as a kid and grew up afraid of going to the dentist. Nylund is committed to helping you achieve and maintain your highest possible oral health. He does all he can to ensure pain-free dentistry during every procedure. Nylund cares about you as a person and takes time to explain all your treatment options in order to educate you to make the best decisions for your specific needs. He firmly stands behind and has a warranty for all the work he does.

Nylund’s commitment to excellence is shown by doing over 1,100 hours of continuing education in nine years compared to the 135 hours required by the state. He has completed the Christensen Continuum and has been asked to mentor other dentists participating in the trainings in Provo, Utah.

One accomplishment he is proud of, is completing The Kois Curriculum. The goal of Kois is to use science to improve the level of care and treatment outcomes.

He is carrying on a family tradition in dentistry as the tenth dentist in his family spanning four generations! Growing up, Nylund was intrigued by his grandfather’s decision to take root in the small town of Rogers, Ark. where he practiced dentistry for over 40 years until his retirement in 1986. And just like his grandfather, Nylund has spent the last nine years maintaining dental health and improving the smiles of citizens in Taos, N.M.

Justin Nylund was born and raised in Dallas, Texas where he attended the Episcopal School of Dallas. Following graduation from high school, he then moved to Memphis, Tenn. to attend Rhodes College.

Nylund received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the prestigious University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School. Upon graduation, he attended a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency in Alamosa, Colo. While in Alamosa, Dr. Nylund gained valuable experience in oral surgery and endodontics, and he also developed a passion for pediatric dentistry. He has also participated in several dental trips in the border towns of Mexico, as well as provided dental care through Indian Health Services, in both North Dakota and Minnesota. Nylund has called Taos home since 2010. He and his wife Patricia, enjoy spending time with their two young daughters. He is excited to be returning to Colorado to raise his daughters.

Dr. Nylund will be seeing patients on a part time basis starting April 2, please call the dental clinic at 970-563-4719, ext. 2368 to schedule an appointment.
