One of Shelly’s favorite things about her job is being able to provide quality cleanings that are comfortable. She is happy to work with Dr. Noorda because of his skill and integrity. When she’s out of the office, she enjoys spending time with her family, riding motorcycles, and water sports.

Pat, Dental Office manager in Henderson, NV

Originally from St. Joseph, Michigan, Pat started with our practice in 2004. She has over 30 years of experience in dentistry and has taken numerous dental continuing education courses. Pat is pleased to work with a team that promotes excellence and puts the needs and comfort of our patients first.

Pat's son Ryan and daughter-in-law Tessa, have blessed her with her first grandchild, Harper. Pat enjoyed motorcycle riding with her husband Bill, and playing with her two Rottweilers, Lexie and Max, but now it's all about Harper.

What Pat enjoys most about our practice is that we treat our patients like family. Our goal is to provide you with the level of excellence in dentistry that we provide our own family members.

“I look forward to talking with you and welcoming you to our practice.”

Valerie

Patient Communications Specialist

Valerie, Dental Patient Communications Specialist in Henderson, NV

Valerie hails from Reno. She is our go-to office help, has customer service and healthcare experience, and has trained in office administration.

Valerie's favorite thing about our practice is that we get to be a part of helping a fearful patient as they change from being afraid to enter a dental office, to knowing they "can do this" and being more confident every time.

Valerie has four kids who are the joy of her heart, speaks a bit of Spanish (and loves to practice), and loves playing with the family dog.

“If you've been looking for a good dentist, you've finally found one. I would love to meet you and welcome you personally to our practice.”
