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:
Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry
American Dental Association
Louisiana Dental Association
Greater Baton Rouge Dental Association
LD Pankey Alumni Association
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.

Our highly trained dentists both have an eye for detail and a desire to help. This has motivated them to educate patients on “why” dental problems occur and identify a long-term fix.
