Noyan Aynechi, DDS, MS
Being a pediatric dentist is a privilege. To be part of a child’s life from an early age, and to have a hand in shaping the way that individual’s life can flourish, is a responsibility I take to heart.
I believe I can make a huge difference in little kids’ lives: teaching them good oral hygiene habits early on, and reinforcing those lessons with positive encouragement. My team and I teach our patients about good decision-making, and spend a lot of time talking about nutrition and behaviors, too. Providing judicious guidance and support, I believe, instills trust and sets a positive foundation for children’s feelings about dentistry and caring for their health.
Beyond dental health, I like to show children that they can work hard, study hard, and be whoever and whatever they want to be when they grow up. By being a strong female role model in my profession and in the community, I feel I show girls and boys that they too can reach for their dreams and achieve what they set out to do.
The practice name, Seedlings Kids Dentistry, reflects my conviction that every child who walks into the office is like a small seed: they need attentive, gentle nurturing to be able to grow and blossom. I am committed to being part of that process.
It is an honor to care for children. I cannot imagine a more humbling, inspiring way to spend my days. — Dr. Noyan

If not in the office, Dr. Noyan is most often found with her family. They love to travel, and expose their daughters to different cultures, experiences, and foods. Summer means lots of traveling and swimming, and winter brings snow skiing adventures.
