Meet Dr. Majd

Dr. Majd loves what she does:“I love being an orthodontist! I feel so fortunate to be a part of my patients' journey with orthodontics in achieving a healthy and beautiful smile for life! The results and transformation of people’s smiles is the most rewarding part of what I do, but the process is just as interesting since we get to know and bond with our patients so closely that sometimes we are excited to see them and find out about what has been happening in their lives!

 Over the years, I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, and the friendships that I’ve built with my patients and their families are one in a million. I get to know my patients and families during the course of treatment so well, they become part of our family.

“As a mother of two teenage children, I feel that my experiences with my children help me understand and work better with my teenage patients. It has always been my goal to make each patient feel at-home when they come to me for treatment and I work very hard to give all my patients the personal care and attention they deserve.” 


Education and Certificates

  • Master of Science in Dentistry and Certificate of Specialty in orthodontics – Boston University, 2000-2003
  • Doctorate of Dental Medicine – Boston University, 1997
  • Doctorate of Dental Surgery, undergraduate and dental school – Tehran University, 1994

Dr. Nooshin Majd graduated from Boston University’s Goldman School of Dental Medicine in 1997 with the first rank in her class of advanced standing. She practiced as a general dentist for three years before returning to Boston University for  residency to fulfill her dream and passion to become an orthodontist. During the three-year post-doctoral residency she had the privilege to be trained by one of the most famous orthodontists in the world,Dr. Anthony Gianelly who is nationally and globally regarded for his work, research and publications in the field of orthodontics.

Throughout her career, Dr. Majd has been involved in clinical research. Her clinical research and work in the area of pain management using combination medications  following dental surgical procedures has been published in several professional journals. With more than 20 years of clinical experience in dentistry and special involvement with disabled and autistic patients as well as those with cleft lip and palate, she is proud to be able to treat all patients, including those that have been regarded as “difficult” by other orthodontists.

One of the significant distinctions that patients who have seen multiple orthodontists always notice is that Dr. Majd's approach to every patient's case is very comprehensive, with precise focus on the patients' smile and facial proportions as much as to the teeth and bite. She has a great eye and attention to every detail and an artistic approach to designing a smile that enhances the patient's facial beauty and attractiveness. Any orthodontist can deliver straight teeth but the esthetic details of teeth positions and proportions are what make our patients' smiles exceptional.

Dr. Majd is truly passionate about her specialty,she continues to learn and study new orthodontic techniques by attending courses and study clubs to advance her knowledge and skills, providing her patients with the best possible orthodontic care.

Family and Commitment to Community

Dr. Majd and her husband, Dr. Saman Malkami (Endodontist) have been married for more than 20 years and have two children. After living in Boston for 12 years through dental school and residency, where both their children were born, they decided to return to Southern California to raise their family in beautiful Orange County.

They share a passion for their community and helping people in need, particularly children. In support of their favorite charities and causes, every year they contribute to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Child Foundation, and local schools and youth education organizations. During her time off, Dr. Majd enjoys reading, running, and yoga.
