Dr. Forrest Noelck is excited to be back home in Arizona after completing his dental training in Colorado and Oregon. Dr. Noelck graduated from the local Westview High School in 2008. He then attended The Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University where he completed dual-degrees in Biology and Economics and, if you’re looking to satisfy those lingering questions from your childhood ant farm, you can ask him about his research completed on the decision-making of ant colonies. After graduation, he left for dental school in Denver at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine where he graduated in 2016 with an emphasis in International Dentistry because of time spent in Guatemala providing dental treatment for children on a banana plantation and strengthening his Spanish. He also completed several rotations through underserved, community dental clinics throughout Colorado broadening his dental exposure. Following graduation, he worked at the Veteran’s Affairs hospital in Portland, Oregon where he completed a General Practice Residency. While there, he had extensive experience working with specialists to complete complex Prosthodontics cases, including a full-mouth rehabilitation case, fabricating dentures for oral cancer survivors and learning advanced surgical techniques. Since returning, Dr. Noelck and his wife Patti have settled back into Arizona living with their Shiba Inu. Dr. Forrest Noelck holds membership in the American Dental Association (ADA), Arizona Dental Association (AzDA) and Central Arizona Dental Society. He is continually learning as a member of Spear’s online education program and is working towards becoming a Fellow with the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD).
