Meet Dr. Philip Nisco

Dr. Nisco has practiced orthodontics in Fountain Valley since 1986 and in Lake Arrowhead since 1988. He was born in Massachusetts and moved to Fountain Valley in 1971. He attended elementary school and high school in Fountain Valley. Dr. Nisco graduated from UC, Irvine with a degree in Biology, received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the UCLA School of Dentistry, and his Orthodontic Specialty training at the University of Connecticut.

Dr. Nisco is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, a member of the Cleft and Craniofacial Team at CHOC, and belongs to the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and American Association of Orthodontists. Dr. Nisco maintained a part-time faculty appointment at the UCLA School of Dentistry from 1986 through 2003 where he taught biomechanics to the residents and dental students.

Dr. Nisco married Mary, his high school sweetheart, in 1981 and they have four wonderful children. Dr. Nisco is a bit of a fanatic when it comes to any of his families activities, in particular athletics, whether as a fan, coach, or participant. Dr. Nisco’s childhood years roaming the forests in New England attracted him to Lake Arrowhead where his satellite office allows him a breath of fresh air and an excuse to fish more often.
