Leland Judd, DDS

Dr. Leland Judd completed his associate degree in mechanical engineering at UW Lacrosse and his bachelor’s degree in microbiology at UW Madison. He attended the Marquette School of Dentistry for his dental degree, graduating in 1991. In 2005, he established McFarland Family Dental. He completes monthly courses and online education on various dental topics, emphasizing restorative and implant dentistry, in order to remain at the forefront of the dental field. Because of his commitment to continuing education and patient care, Dr. Judd completes more credits each year than required by the State to maintain his dental license.

Dr. Judd has completed advanced training in a number of different areas, including adult oral sedation through the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS), emergency medicine in the dental office with Stanley Melamed, advanced implant training through the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and cosmetic dentistry training through the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. He has been in practice for over 29 years, and is a member of many professional organizations, including:

As a dentist, Dr. Judd is committed to taking the time and care that his patients deserve to understand their needs and wants and to customize treatment plans that his patients will be happy with, and which will optimize their oral health while respecting their time constraints and budget. He enjoys building relationships with his team and patients, and will always take the time to listen to his patients’ needs, discussing all their options with them in order to create a treatment plan and provide them with quality treatments in the most caring manner possible.

Dr. Judd grew up in Evansville, Wisconsin. His father was an electrician, and his mother and family were dairy farmers, cheesemakers or worked for General Motors. His fathers’ brother, who attended Milton college received a PhD in Physics, was a professor at Fresno State. Unfortunately, Dr. Judd did not receive the math gene in the family and had to reconsider his career. He was, however, great with biology and chemistry. One day he had a cleaning appointment with his dentist, Dr. Charlie Nelson, who was also a friend of the family. When Dr. Nelson asked how engineering was going Dr. Judd told him he needed to switch his career pursuit, and Dr. Nelson responded that if he enjoyed working with his hands, he should be a dentist. Dr. Judd is very happy with his career choice!

Dr. Judd and his wife, Amy, have one daughter, Emma. Outside the office his hobbies include camping, hiking, boating, fishing and traveling.
