Dr. Nodesh - Your Prosthodontist

As a prosthodontist, I love to help my patients achieve their goals and their confidence to smile. This is what excites me to go to work and gives me immense satisfaction everyday. Creating transformations that can change a person’s life - Giving them confidence and the quality of life they deserve, makes everything I do worth it.Dr. Nodesh

Dr. Nodesh is focused on creating optimal oral health and function in order to improve and maintain his patients’ overall health. In practice since 2004, his love for dental science and creative arts came as the perfect combination for being a prosthodontist.

Dr. Nodesh’s practice philosophy revolves around a core concept; Carefully listening to his patients’ needs, desires, and concerns. He works hard to ensure that his patients thoroughly understand their dental conditions, what treatment is best suited for them, and why. He takes his work very seriously but knows how to do that with a smile. He enjoys engaging in conversations with his patients and getting to know them beyond their dental concerns.

He believes in teamwork for great outcomes. “Our team has the passion for dentistry, just like I do, and the true desire to help patients, and that makes this the best team ever.” — Dr. Nodesh
