Dr. Alan Noelck has constantly researched dental and medical techniques and topics throughout his career to best serve his patients, including pioneering the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings and placement of tooth-colored composites long before the rest of the dental field back in 1987. He continues his efforts with memberships in the ADA (American Dental Association), AzDA (Arizona Dental Association), IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology), and IABDM (International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine).
His passion for helping people through dentistry has driven him to master the art of cosmetic restorations as a way to truly bring a new smile to the faces of his patients. Additionally, his passion to help people is the driving force that has led him to provide a biologically safe dental practice for all his patients and work with those patients who want to improve their health by fixing their dental issues.
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, so 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 process 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 due to 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 gained 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 toward becoming a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD).
