Dr. Nelson and her team were fantastic from the moment I called them on the phone to the moment I walked out of the building (or got wheeled out after surgery) lol I was very nervous about the cosmetic crown lengthening surgery I was having done on all my front teeth (which is something I have been wanting done for years on end) and they were so informative and truly made me feel at ease. The surgery results turned out amazing, even better than I could have ever imagined. Also, the pain level was so minimal I was extremely impressed. I’m a hygienist and my general dental office refers patients to her and her staff all the time, and it makes me feel even more confident as a provider that i have seen it for myself - our patients are being referred and put in the best hands. Thank you so much to everyone in the staff and Dr. Nelson for making this such a wonderful experience for me, and honestly correcting such a big insecurity of mine. I am forever grateful.

I am usually hesitant of regular dental appointments, so having gum surgery was a little more frightening! But it was awesome to have my work done by Dr. Nelson and her staff. Everyone in all areas were so friendly and answered all my questions completely. I was made to feel completely at ease. Highly recommend her!

Sharon Solomon

Very cozy office. From check all the way to seeing the Dr. to check out everyone was so nice.

Patricia Medina

I was treated with respect and concern. The time spent on my consultation was exceptional. I was referred by my dentist. After full mouth x-ray and x-ray on one implant Dr. Nelson felt I did not need a bone graft. I wish I was sent to Dr. Nelson for the implant in question.

Barbara Cordray

Everyone was super nice and explained everything so I could understand what the next step would be, very pleased with everyone there
