Meet Your Tacoma Family Orthodontist

Puyallup Orthodontist

Dr. Nordberg loves his patients and helping them develop the smiles they always wanted.

A native to the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Nordberg grew up in the Puyallup/South Hill area.

Education & Experience

After graduating from Rogers High School, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from the University of Washington.

He then headed down the coast to complete his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Southern California.

His next stop was in Brooklyn, NY, where he worked as a dentist in a hospital and performed craniofacial genetics research before completing his residency in San Francisco, CA.

Dr. Nordberg also holds a Masters of Science in Dentistry Orthodontics and an Orthodontic Residency Certificate.

Outside the Office

When he's not helping others reach their smile-design dreams, he can be found spending time with his family, cheering on local sports teams, and enjoying the outdoors surfing, snowboarding, and hiking!

Orthodontics for the Whole Family 

Here at Nordberg Orthodontics, we want to keep your whole family smiling for years to come. We recognize that adults will have different orthodontic needs than children and teens, and each will need unique treatment strategies and care. Our talented team will work with you and your family to ensure that you always receive the most appropriate treatments and that your needs are met with understanding and respect from us.

Tacoma Family Orthodontics Treatment Options for Children

There is no exact minimum age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, but the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children receive their first orthodontic evaluation by no later than the age of seven. By this age, most children will have a good mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier for orthodontists like Dr. Nordberg to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems early. This reduces the risk of dental issues becoming more severe and requiring more serious treatment in the future.

Tacoma Family Orthodontics Options for Teens

If you suspect your teen could benefit from orthodontic treatment, you’re both likely to have questions. You may be feeling nervous about the unknown, and your teen may be feeling worried when considering wearing braces or aligners. This is an entirely common reaction, but fortunately, it’s also a temporary one! The bulky, uncomfortable metal braces of the past have given way to the smaller, sleeker braces available today. Modern orthodontic appliances are comfortable, stylish, and available in a variety of styles, materials, and colors. 

Nordberg Orthodontics offer a variety of orthodontic appliances to teens in need of corrective treatment. Fixed and removable options are available depending on the individual case. These options include:

Tacoma Family Orthodontics for Adults

Many adults are now choosing to seek orthodontic care later in life. In fact, about 1 in 5 current orthodontic patients is over the age of 21! Modern orthodontics offers multiple discreet but effective ways to straighten adult smiles, including clear braces and clear aligner systems like Invisalign

Some of the most common issues we see in adult patients contemplating orthodontic treatment are:

  • a bad bite (malocclusion) causing the teeth to fit together incorrectly
  • the teeth are too crowded, or spaced too far apart
  • any abnormal jaw pain, or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth

Seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult can dramatically increase your confidence and success. But more importantly, improving your dental health can have a positive impact on your overall health.
