Dr. Nooshin Majd, DMD, MSD
Dr. Nooshin Majd has been chosen as Top Orange County Orthodontist every year since 2016 based on votes by patients, peers and other dentists and published in Orange Coast Magazine.
Dr. Majd always says: “I love being an orthodontist and feel so fortunate to be a part of your and your child’s life through the journey with orthodontics and obtaining a healthy and beautiful smile! The results and transformation of people’s smile is the most rewarding part, but the process is just as enjoyable. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, and the friendships that I’ve built with my patients and their families are one in a million. I get to know my patients and families during the course of treatment so well, they become part of our family. “As a mother and remembering the days my children were teenagers, I feel that my experiences at home help me understand and work better with my teenage patients. It has always been my focus to make each patient feel at-home when they come to me for treatment and I work very hard to give my patients the attention they deserve.” — Dr. Majd
