Dr. Noorda is very proud of the professional team of orthodontic staff members he has assembled who help him provide the spectacular level of care that our office is famous for. It is our goal to always make your visits enjoyable and comfortable. If any of us can ever be of assistance to you during your orthodontic care, please do not hesitate to ask for any of our highly trained staff members by name. We are here to serve you!

Martha – Office Manager

team1.jpgMartha 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 15 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. She and her daughters all received orthodontic care with Dr. Noorda.

Terry – Treatment Coordinator

team2.jpgOriginally from Utah, Terry and her husband, Dick, are the proud parents of four children, but she loves her eight grandchildren even more! Terry has worked in our office for more than 13 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!

Pat – Treatment Coordinator

team3.jpgPat is originally from Texas, but spent the first part of her adult life living in many parts of the country, including Alaska, with her husband, Jerry, while he pursued a military career. They are the parents of four children and are now enjoying the addition of grandchildren into their family. Pat joined our office when her kids were young, and she and the kids all had braces on at the same time with Dr. Noorda. Pat is our Treatment Coordinator and will work with Dr. Noorda in planning out an individualized program for your entire orthodontic care. As a patient, as the mother of patients, and with over 12 years of experience in our office, Pat can answer your orthodontic questions!

Bobbie – Chairside Assistant

team2.jpg   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 12 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 – Chairside Assistant

team2.jpgCynthia 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 11 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!

 

Kelly – Chairside Assistant

team2.jpgKelly 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 17 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.

 

Robert – Lab Man

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 more than twenty 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 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!
