Dr. Roland H. Nomie, DMD
Dr. Nomie grew up in Gresham, OR where he developed a passion for dentistry. He always knew that he wanted to do something that involved medicine, but he had a desire for art. Initially, Dr. Nomie, was drawn to the engineering field, but soon re-adapted that interest towards dentistry – where he found that he can apply his interests of medicine, art, and engineering in one field. His aspiration for dentistry was solidified during a Give Kids a Smile event at Oregon Health & Science University, where he volunteered and helped as the dental students provided care to underprivileged children.
