WHO WE ARE
D.D.S. General Dentist
D.D.S. General Dentist
Dr. Dilan Munaweera (known as “Dr. Dilan”) chose dentistry because it combines two great interests of his: working with machines and caring for people. One of the aspects he appreciates most about his role is the ability to see a positive outcome from his work. He strives each day to deliver the best possible care to his patients, and he truly enjoys making people feel better.
Dr. Dilan received his Bachelor’s of Dental Surgery from the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka. During this time, he was awarded the Uni Lever Brothers Gold Medal for Community Dentistry. After practicing dentistry in his home country for several years, he moved to California and completed his D.D.S. degree at the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry.
Outside of the office, Dr. Dilan remains active within the industry through memberships to organizations such as the Academy of General Dentistry and the Northern Nevada Dental Society. His personal interests include traveling and photography, and he loves to spend time in the outdoors.

Dr. Novick says, “Being an orthodontist has kept me young at heart and in mind, as I’ve been able to treat children and adults for over 38 years. My career has been a labor of love, one that continues to give me great pleasure.”
“I decided I wanted to be an orthodontists at the age of 12 while going through my own orthodontic treatment in El Paso, Texas. My orthodontist was always making jokes and keeping the patients laughing while creating beautiful smiles. I thought, “Maybe I’ll do that someday.” Thirteen years later, I graduated from dental school in Houston. I practiced general dentistry for the next 7 years before returning to Houston to specialize in orthodontics.”
Dr. Novick attended the University of Texas at El Paso for undergraduate studies and continued his professional education in Houston, earning his Dental Degree. After seven years in the practice of general dentistry in El Paso, He returned to Houston for two years of post-doctoral training at the University of Texas Dental Branch, where he was awarded a Certificate of Orthodontics. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics
Dr. Novick says, “I live in Las Vegas with my wife, Diane, and a 4 year old dwarf bunny named Hollie, who we thought was a girl, but turned out to be a boy. We enjoy our 10 grandchildren in Las Vegas, Denver and Austin.”
“While practicing general dentistry, I pursued another boyhood passion, a fascination with radio, and became a disc jockey on the #1 Rock-and-Roll radio station in El Paso. I hosted a weekend radio show called “Rock With the Doc” on KPAS-FM94 from 1975-1980. Later, after becoming an orthodontist, I studied for and passed the required FCC exam to earn a ham radio operator license. I was given the call sign KB5MGF, allowing me to communicate with people all over the world from my own amateur radio station.”
