Dr. Evelyn Nord

Dr. Evelyn Nord grew up on a family farm in Clinton, IL where she was heavily involved in FFA and 4-H.   Through showing cattle, she met her husband, Keith England, a farmer in Oneida, IL. Dr. Nord completed her Bachelor of Science at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana with honors majoring in Integrative Biology and a minor in Chemistry.

Dr. Nord attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville School of Dental Medicine in Alton, IL where she graduated magna cum luade and received multiple awards for excellence in dentistry (the Dean’s scholarship, Humanitarian Award, J.R. Schmidt Award for excellence in restorative dentistry, AES Occlusion and TMD, and was inducted as a member of Omicron Kappa Upsilon – the national dental honor society.) She took an active role as president of the Christian Medical Dental Society, and held various offices with the Delta Sigma Delta Fraternity and the American Association for Women Dentists.

During her 2nd year at dental school, Dr. Nord and Keith married.  Long distance was difficult, but well worth the wait in the end.  Upon graduation, Dr. Nord moved to Galesburg, IL to be with her husband.  In July of 2018 they welcomed their first daughter into the world, Genevieve.  Then they were blessed with another beautiful girl, Gwendolyn in June of 2020 amidst the pandemic.  After working for a couple of years, Dr. Nord decided she wanted to purchase a practice in Peoria. Things solidified and Dr. Nord started here late 2020.

Dr. Nord is currently a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Illinois State Dental Society and the Academy of GP Orthodontics.  Dr. Nord has also completed her Associate Fellowship with the Academy of GP Orthodontics and is excited to now offer this new service for patients!

Family is extremely important to Dr. Nord and she spends most of her free time with her daughters, Genevieve and Gwendolyn.  She also enjoys singing, playing piano or guitar, and attending cattle shows with her husband, Keith.

Dr. Nord is extremely compassionate and loves to help in any way she can.  She especially enjoys working with children.  Our office is an excellent choice for the nervous patient or someone who needs a little extra care.
