Meet Dr. Byron Nordhus
Byron J. Nordhus, DDS
I have been a dentist for over 15 years, but my love of dentistry goes back even further. I had braces as an adolescent, and will always remember the positive change in my self confidence and the life changing benefits of a great smile. I am proud to help people lead healthier lives through education and good oral health. Our goal is to guide people to reach their goals and realize their potential.

I believe investing time in continuing education has been an avenue to my success resulting in great outcomes for my patients. Dental science is always advancing, and it is fascinating to be on the cutting edge of technology. I am a Premier Preferred Invisalign® Provider and have attended the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, where I studied cosmetic and restorative dentistry. I enjoy learning and am always attending continuing education classes to be a better dentist for my patients.

In the Office
I get so excited about making a positive impact in our patients’ lives. Everyone wants to do the best for themselves and their families, and we strive to help them get where they see themselves. My team and I work hard to make patients comfortable and safe. We do whatever it takes to make you feel like family whether that be a listening ear or a welcoming hug.
At Home and In the Community
I was raised on a farm near Baileyville, KS, but I am now proud to call Wichita my home. My wife Marilee of over 20 years and I have five daughters and two sons, which makes for a very full, very active home. When I am not in the office, I spend a lot of time with my children and their activities, any outdoor recreation or working on our farm near Danville.
It is important for me to be active in my church and community. My older children and I volunteer at the Lord’s Diner, and I spend time volunteering at my church while providing annual dental screenings at my children's school. I am also a member of the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce.
I am also involved as a part time faculty member for the new AEGD (Advanced Education in General Dentistry) residency program offered through Wichita State University. It is a yearlong residency for dentist's seeking additional training in general dentistry after finishing dental school. I enjoy being a mentor as well as sharing my knowledge to the new dentist's that are committed to furthering their education.
