Dr. Justin Tullis, DDS, AEGD, MS
Dr. Justin Tullis found his passion for Periodontics as a second career after a 5-year stint as a engineer for a multi-national company. He grew up in an Army family, stationed in North Carolina, Texas, and South Korea, and is grateful to all who have served. He went to school the first time to earn chemical engineering degree from Brigham Young University. After moving on from his engineering career, he returned to school and earned his DDS at the Texas Medical Center in Houston, completed a 1-year residency in Advanced General Dentistry, and then a 3-year residency in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry at the University of Missouri Kansas City. Dr. Tullis has received several awards and has presented his clinical research at conferences and published in scientific journals.
Dr. Tullis believes that we appreciate all we have been given, by serving others. He has volunteered in several capacities inside and outside of dentistry: including a 2-year missionary service in Brazil, a facial reconstruction mission trip to Peru and several local Missions of Mercy in the U.S. He believes that if we put the patients’ best interest first, happiness and success will naturally follow. His training and philosophy include saving natural teeth whenever possible, but periodontists are also trained in all aspects of dental implants.
Outside of the clinic he enjoys music, sports, and exploring the great outdoors with his wife and 11-year-old son. The Tullis family is thrilled to put down roots in Colorado Springs!
