Lakewood & Littleton Oral Surgeon, Haeman Noori, DDS
After spending his early childhood in Charlottesville, Virginia, Dr. Noori grew up in central Massachusetts and graduated from the Massachusetts Academy of Mathematics & Sciences as his class valedictorian and St. John’s High School. He then went on to college at MIT and Cornell, ultimately graduating from Cornell with distinction in all subjects and an A.B. in History and minor in Psychology. It was while there that his interest in healthcare truly began and he spent considerable time working at a national, non-profit public health organization that exposed him to many amazing individuals devoting their careers to selflessly tackling initiatives aimed at improving the lives of many.
Upon graduation, he proceeded to medical school for two years but then later changed career paths and entered the private sector. His love for health care, however, eventually reclaimed his attention and after completing a year as a research fellow at Duke University, he came to appreciate the field of dental medicine and then graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Noori most appreciated being able to witness his Tarheels win a national title in basketball during his tenure there, but he also discovered his passion for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and had the privilege to develop some early mentorships and experiences while a dental student.
Dr. Noori obtained his certificate in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Indiana University in Indianapolis. While there, he obtained a full-scope training with a strong emphasis on maxillofacial trauma and reconstructive surgery, oral pathology, orthognathic surgery, anesthesia, dentoalveolar surgery and implantology in addition to completing nearly a year of a general surgery internship. Later, as a chief resident, he helped cover facial surgery cases at the two busiest Level I trauma centers in the state as well as one of the nation’s largest children’s hospitals. He also served as a district representative of the national resident organization and developed a keen awareness of important policies affecting oral health.

Dr. Noori prides himself on constantly immersing himself and his staff in continuing education (CE). He is both a leader and member of several study clubs, has lectured nationally, and also attends numerous seminars, courses, and national conferences to stay abreast of the most current research and techniques in the field. He has a special interest in dental implantology and bone and soft tissue grafting along with the treatment and reconstruction of victims of facial trauma. As the child of two university professors, he has had a passion for teaching since a young age and genuinely enjoys educating his patients about their treatment options and surgical care. Dr. Noori is passionate about giving back to the community and providing treatment to those less fortunate.
Dr. Noori’s wife is a fellow graduate of the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry and a general dentist who especially loves treating children. The two of them have fallen in love with Colorado and feel very fortunate to be raising their family here. They have two elementary-aged children, their son Aidan and daughter Ava who are both native Denverites! Dr. Noori is a die-hard sports fan and bleeds for all those New England teams that others love to hate (but they were his home town teams growing up!) so you will often see him sporting the Patriots, Celtics, and Red Sox with pride and also cheers for his Big Red, Tarheels, and Hoosiers. He enjoys exercising, reading, taking advantage of Colorado’s amazing outdoors, and indulging his coffee addiction by exploring local coffee shops- to which he is always open to new suggestions!
