Dr. Katie Nordeen

Dr. Katie Nordeen was born and raised in Mendota Heights and spent her childhood in Apple Valley doing gymnastics at TAGS South, just a few miles down the road. After graduating from high school, she continued her gymnastics career at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, earning a BA in Spanish and chemistry while competing for the Varsity Women’s Gymnastics team.

After college, Dr. Katie attended the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and also met her husband, Dr. Kyle. Upon graduation, Dr. Katie was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society.

Following graduation, Drs. Katie and Kyle spent three years working together as general dentists in Hayward, Wisconsin at NorthLakes Community Dental Clinic. Her practice experience inspired her to pursue additional training in pediatric dentistry. She completed pediatric dental residency training at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, earning a specialty certificate in pediatric dentistry as well as a Master of Science in Dentistry degree. Dr. Katie practiced pediatric dentistry in both the Twin Cities area and in Iowa City, where Dr. Kyle completed his residency training in pediatric dentistry.

After four years of practice in pediatric dentistry, Dr. Katie pursued residency training in orthodontics at the University of Minnesota. Since orthodontic care is such an important element of oral health care for pediatric and adolescent patients, she is excited to provide both comprehensive pediatric dentistry and orthodontics to her patients under one roof.

In her free time, she enjoys reading, trying new local restaurants, and spending time outdoors with Dr. Kyle, their two sons, James and Teddy, extended family and friends.

Above and Beyond!

I feel compelled to share this! McKenna and Thomas were both seen by Dr. Nordeen at Carousel Pediatric Dentistry in Apple Valley, and we were just so very impressed. Thomas having to have his two front teeth pulled and McKenna needing in-clinic surgery. The whole process was honestly above and beyond. Kyle was so kind and compassionate, having young kids himself he really understood my kids needs and my mom worries (my MH/WSP peeps, he’s married to Dr. Wild's daughter Katie!). Outside of the dental work, the clinic was so clean and they were very careful with their COVID precautions. Everyone was so friendly and helpful we are just so grateful to come across them! If you’re looking for pediatric dentistry or maybe looking for something else, this is it!
