A native of Las Vegas, Dr. Carey B. Noorda is pleased to call Nevada home. After graduating from Valley High School, he earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Brigham Young University. He then attended the University of the Pacific (UOP) School of Dentistry in San Francisco, graduating with Highest Honors as the Valedictorian of his dental class. Dr. Noorda also completed his postdoctoral training in orthodontics at UOP, earning a Master of Science in Dentistry, graduating again with Highest Honors.

Dr. Noorda returned to Nevada after his training and has practiced orthodontics in the Las Vegas area for more than 30 years. In that time he has provided orthodontic care for over 15,000 patients.  He is a recognized leader in the early treatment of bite disorders in children. He has lectured extensively, mentoring other orthodontists in the areas of early orthodontic intervention and childhood orthopedic facial correction.

Dr. Noorda is a Board Certified Orthodontist and is an active Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. He has served as the President of the Nevada State Society of Orthodontists and most recently as a Director representing Nevada on the Board of the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists. Dr. Noorda is a member of many other professional organizations, including the Nevada Dental Association, the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists. He was a founding member of the Southern Nevada Orthodontic Research Society.

Recognized not only locally as a preferred orthodontist in the cities of Henderson and Las Vegas, and also in the state of Nevada – Dr. Noorda has even been ranked nationally as a premier doctor by Top Dentists in the Nation.  Since 2007, when this ranking system was first developed, Dr. Noorda has been chosen every year for the past eleven years in a row!  Dr. Noorda is pleased to announce that for 2018, he was again nominated by both his peers and his patients for this prestigious national honor.

As much as Dr. Noorda has excelled in orthodontics, he feels that his greatest achievements have occurred at home. He and his college sweetheart, Cindy, are the proud parents of four children, but the real joy in their lives now comes from each of their new grandchildren.

Meet the Team

  • Martha

  • Martha is our Office Manager. Her many areas of responsibility include oversight of all the financial, insurance and scheduling activities, as well as management of our personnel needs. She is especially knowledgeable about helping our patients finance their orthodontic care. Martha has been employed in our office for over 21 years and even helped oversee the construction of our present facility. Martha is a native of Las Vegas and is the mother of two beautiful daughters, and recently became a proud grandmother. She and her daughters all received orthodontic care with Dr. Noorda.
  • Terry

  • Originally from Utah, Terry and her husband, Dick, are the proud parents of four children, but she loves her twelve grandchildren even more! Terry has worked in our office for more than 20 years. She has filled many roles during that time – as treatment coordinator, records specialist and even as a chairside assistant. Terry just finished her braces, along with her son and several of her grandchildren, and she can show you all of her special secrets for orthodontic success as a patient. Terry is often the first person you will meet in our office because her favorite place is at the front desk to greet patients as they arrive. As soon as you meet Terry, you'll instantly know why she is everyone's favorite – whether it's her role as mom, grandmother, neighbor or receptionist in our office! She loves helping new patients get started with their orthodontic experience. She makes it lots of fun!
  • Kelly

  • Kelly has actually worked on and off for Dr Noorda longer than any other employee in our office. Originally schooled as a beautician, Kelly used those skills to be trained as an orthodontic assistant by Dr Noorda in on the job training 21 years ago. Since then she has also worked as our receptionist answering phones at the front desk, and as a Treatment Coordinator doing the initial exams and records. Kelly knows every aspect of our office, but she loves being able to provide direct orthodontic patient care again. Kelly is a Las Vegas native, and is the proud mother of a son who is also a college student.
  • Bobbie

  • Bobbie is our clinical coordinator. Above her regular duties of providing direct patient care, she is also responsible for ordering all of our orthodontic equipment and supplies. Bobbie has worked in our office for over 15 years, and is loved by all of our patients. She completed her dental assisting training in 2001, and came to work for us directly out of her training. Originally from Hawaii, Bobbie tries to teach us Hawaiian words, which usually sound funny to us, but are usually way more descriptive and precise than our own English!  Bobby is the proud mother of two college students.
  • Cynthia

  • Cynthia is quite simply the best chairside assistant we have ever employed!  Her skills as a clinician are amazing. Cynthia has been employed in our office for 15 years, and actually started in our office as an extern, during the final stages of her dental assisting training.  In addition to providing direct patient care, Cynthia is responsible for maintaining all of our sterilization equipment and monitoring. When Cynthia first came to work for us we could hardly get her to talk...   ...Oh, how things have changed!  Now, Cynthia usually provides our entertainment during the day!
  • Nancy

  • Nancy is one of our newest team members, but prior to having her join our team, she had been an orthodontic assistant in Florida for more than 7 years.   She brought with her an exceptional skill set in clinical orthodontics, and has been a tremendous asset to our clinical staff.  In addition to her abilities as a chairside assistant, Nancy has quickly assumed the role of our social media editor.  She loves adding photos of our staff events, practice highlights, and each of our milestones, but her best posts are always of you - our newly starting patients and the celebrations that follow the completion of your orthodontics! Nancy and her fiancé moved here this past summer, so that he could accept a position working for the Las Vegas Golden Knights.  When you see Nancy during the next few weeks, make sure to  congratulate her on their upcoming wedding in October!
  • Ari

  • Ari is our newest team member, having graduated from the PIMA dental assisting school in Las Vegas this past summer.  She has developed, refined, and honed her clinical skills in an astoundingly short amount of time, and has quickly become a vital part of our orthodontic team.  All of the kids that visit our office love her.  Ari is especially kindhearted and is always happy.  Ari is meticulous and careful - in a word - a "perfectionist!"  That character trait will serve her well in her career as an orthodontic assistant!
  • Robert

  • Robert makes all of our retainers. He is a true artist, and has the creative mind and skilled hands that have made all of the removable orthodontic appliances used by Dr Noorda for nearly thirty years!  He also fabricates all of the study models used by Dr Noorda to diagnose each orthodontic case, and which we also use as a permanent record of the orthodontic treatment we provide. Robert is originally from Kentucky, and in his youth won the title of "Mr Kentucky" as a body builder!  Robert is very active in his church, and along with his wife, Pat, is a proud father, grandfather, and even great grandfather!
