Justin Poulson, DDS, MAGD
General Dentist Specialist in Great Falls MT
Dr. Justin Poulson grew up in the greater Salt Lake City, Utah area where he enjoyed playing football in high school, hiking in the mountains, and doing all things outdoors. Justin’s interest in dentistry started at the age of twelve while assisting his father, Daniel S. Poulson, DDS (Dental Professor at Roseman University, Utah Dental Board Member, and Western Regional Examination Board Administrator).
He was impressed by his father’s passion for his patients and gained an appreciation for his skills in relation to helping people. After a service mission in Thailand, Justin saw first-hand the need for passionate individuals and highly skilled dentists.
When he received his Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science and a minor in Business, he began working as a Research Technician in dental material science for Clinician’s Report, a highly reputable dental publication, in Provo, Utah. There he received valuable knowledge on the highest quality dental materials and the rigorous testing involved in each review.
Later, Justin received his Doctoral of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Dugoni School of Dentistry at the University of the Pacific. Since graduating, Dr. Poulson is a Master in the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD), which involves several hours of specific continuing education requirements, hands-on participation, volunteer work in clinics, case presentations, and in-depth testing. In addition to this achievement, Justin graduated from an in-depth course, Clinical Implantology from A to Z, at the Washington Academy of General Dentistry.
He then was invited to be a Co-Director of this implant course. Dentistry has brought the opportunity for Dr. Poulson to live and work in several different states such as; California, Alaska, Oregon, Utah and now Montana all of which have taught him valuable skills and information in various aspects of dentistry that he uses in his practice daily.
Justin enjoys building lasting relationships with his staff and patients and is known to sing a tune while working. While not at work he spends as much time as possible with his wife; Kristin, two children; Dean and Naomi, and two dogs; Jasper and Mae, going camping, hiking, fishing, and traveling.
