Henderson, NV Orthodontist
Dr. Brady C. Okuda was born and raised in Las Vegas. He graduated from Chaparral High School and then received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Between his college years, he served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in the Japan Sapporo Mission. In 2009, he began his dental training at the University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine, receiving a Military Healthcare Professional Scholarship, and graduating in 2013.
After dental school, Dr. Okuda served as a dentist with the rank of Captain in the United States Air Force. He spent his first year in the military completing an advanced general dentistry residency at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska. He and his family then went on an overseas tour stationed at Yokota Air Base in Japan where he practiced general dentistry from 2014 to 2017.
Upon the completion of his military service, Dr. Okuda decided to pursue his true passion for orthodontics at Jacksonville University in Florida. There, he did his orthodontic residency to become a certified specialist in orthodontics and received a Master of Science in Clinical Orthodontics. Dr. Okuda’s master’s thesis, “Direct to consumer orthodontics: Exploring patient demographic trends and preferences,” was published in the American Journal of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics.
Dr. Okuda also took the extra, voluntary step of becoming a board-certified orthodontist, the highest certification in the field. The board-certification process involved hundreds of hours of preparation, as well as passing peer-developed written and clinical examinations to demonstrate a commitment to providing lifelong, exceptional patient care.
Being a true overachiever, Dr. Okuda actually completed all of his requirements for his orthodontic graduation at Jacksonville three months early. He decided to return to Nevada where he became partners with Dr. Noorda, his former orthodontist, to form Okuda & Noorda Orthodontics. Now, at our practice, he loves interacting with patients and providing them with a smile they can be proud of. He combines his years of training with the latest proven technology to help patients get results more comfortably and quickly.
Outside of the Office
Dr. Okuda and his wife, Melissa, have three beautiful children. When he’s not treating patients, he enjoys being active and participating in activities, such as surfing, snowboarding and soccer. He spends most of his free time being a father to his wonderful kids and supporting them in their various extracurricular activities.
