Tranquility Dental Wellness
A Great Dentist

Lori A. Noga, DMD

Founder & CEO

Treatment Philosophy

Dr. Lori Noga’s treatment philosophy encompasses health, function, and beauty. She believes that dentistry is more than just fixing teeth; it is putting overall health as the priority and building function and beauty from there. Teeth, after all, are a part of the human body! She understands that a great deal of trust must be allowed by the patients while undergoing care and treats each individual she sees as if they are her own family, providing the very best care possible.

Educational Background

Dr. Noga grew up in central New York and attended college at the University of Hartford, where she earned a business degree in actuarial science. She spent several years working in the insurance industry before deciding it wasn't the perfect fit for her personality. Upon realizing this, she quit her job as an actuary and was accepted by the prestigious Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where she would earn her Doctorate of Dental Medicine.

During her four years in dental school, Dr. Noga was awarded several merit scholarships by Tufts University and received the Dr. & Mrs. Albert J. Kazi Award for Excellence in Crown and Bridge.

Military Experience

During dental school, Dr. Noga was awarded the prestigious Health Sciences Collegiate Scholarship by the United States Navy. In return, she served as an active duty general dentist and Navy Lieutenant for three years with the Marine Corp, stationed in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Because of the large population of the base, Dr. Noga was able to work alongside all types of dental specialists and gained vast amounts of knowledge and experience. She was honored to have a hand, albeit a small hand, in helping and treating the men and women who sacrifice so much to serve our country.

She's excited to now reside near another large military installation and have the privilege of treating the families of our great military members.

Continuing Education

Dr. Noga feels it is imperative to continue the learning process throughout her career in order to keep current on materials and treatment options so that she can always provide the very best treatment. She actively seeks out continuing education classes offered locally, regionally, and through magazines and internet resources. She is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, American Academy of Cosmetic Orthodontics, and American Academy of General Dentistry.

Personal Life

In her free time, Dr. Noga is active in the community through various organizations. She also enjoys spending time exploring the Pacific Northwest and beyond with her husband, Colby, and her two sons, Cameron and Carter. She's a HUGE animal lover and has two dogs, Lucky and Delilah, and a cat, Kramer. She is excited to serve the Olympia, Lacey, Hawks Prairie, Dupont, and Tacoma communities and to care for you and your loved ones for years and years to come.

Jennifer P
I don't think I've ever had such a great experience for any medical related service in my life! The atmosphere as soon as I entered the office was warm and inviting, emanating from the space and staff alike. The complimentary spa services during the cleaning helped relax me to the point where it carried through the rest of my day. Everything helped lessen the awkward feeling one can get from being at the dentist. Communication from the staff was friendly and effective. My hygienist and the assistant were both friendly and knowledgeable. I am so glad to have found this place and definitely will return!
