Doctors and Staff

Meet the experienced and friendly dentists who make Bridle Trails Family Dentistry the leading provider of oral hygiene and personalized dental services in Kirkland.

Russell Nomi, D.D.S.

I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to practice dentistry here in Kirkland for so many years. While I’ve always enjoyed the technical aspect of my work, the relationships I’ve created with my patients are what have truly made this a fulfilling career. I love watching children grow up into healthy, happy adults, and then bring their own children in to see me. It makes our office truly like a family.

Education and Continuing Education

I attended the University of Washington School of Dentistry and earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1981. Since graduating, I have expanded my knowledge and training in new and innovative dental procedures. Continuing education helps keep me abreast of what is new and evolving in dentistry and medicine. I feel that the more knowledge my staff and I have, the better the service we can provide for our patients.

Family and Community

I am a Seattle native and have lived in Bellevue on Lake Sammamish since 1991. I have been happily married to Gwennie for almost 30 years. Gwennie is a retired hygienist who now works mostly on her tennis game. We have two wonderful grown sons: Ron and Wesley. Ron has a business degree from Seattle University and is working at a clothing start-up in Kirkland. He also partners in a dental product importing company. Wesley is attending dental school in Arizona. Wes loves school and is at the very top of his class. I hope we can practice together when Wes graduates in a couple of years. Our family also has three dogs and several koi.

When not working, I like to do different sports activities which include tennis, windsurfing, kayaking, hiking, and cycling. Gwennie and I enjoy the company of our friends and travel.

We donate to several charitable causes including the NW Children’s Fund, KCDS, various politicians, and the Issaquah Food Bank, to name a few. I also volunteer a lot of time at my office working with people who cannot afford the high cost of dental care. I have been on many mission trips to different countries and have sponsored others to do so as well. I feel that everyone deserves a chance to lead a healthy, happy, productive life.

Dr. Wesley Nomi

Wes NomiI am extremely grateful to not only be able to return to my hometown here in the PNW, but to be able to practice with and learn from My father, Dr. Russell Nomi. It has been a pleasure working with our staff, and getting to know the patients that have made this practice what it is today. Every day one of our patients shares a memory of me throughout the years, making them truly feel like a family to me.

Education and Continuing Education

I attended the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health and earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2017. Since graduating at the top of my class, I have continued to educate myself and learn new techniques and skills to practice dentistry using the most modern technologies available. Continuing education allows me to provide the best quality of care and information to my patients.

Family and Community

As a Bellevue native, It has been incredible to return home after so many years out of state. Outside the office, I am very active and enjoy golfing, hiking, wakesurfing, and staying fit. I spend a lot of time with family, friends, and our three family dogs! Also glad to be back supporting Seattle Sports!
