Dr. Rick Liftig has been in practice since 1980. He graduated from the University of Connecticut with a BA in Biology in 1975 and received his DMD (Doctorate of Dental Medicine) from the University of Connecticut in 1979. Dr. Rick is a third generation dentist and practiced with his Dad, Dr. Al Liftig for ten years (hence the moniker Dr. Rick as opposed to Dr. Al).
Dr. Rick is a member of the American Dental Association, Connecticut State Dental Association, the Hartford Dental Society and the Academy of General Dentistry. He has earned the prestigious FAGD award from the Academy.
He is very active in the community: President of the Elmwood Business Association, former Chairman and Board member previously of The Childrens Museum, a member of the Rotary Club of West Hartford and a member of the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce.
Rick and his wife Kathy live in West Hartford and are proud parents of two Conard HS graduates, Kevin and Alyssa. And, he enjoys writing about himself in the third person.
