The dental hygienist is excellent and preformed great service. The dentist was friendly, and made an appropriate evaluation of my teeth. I wish that dentists would offer eco-friendly alternatives to the standard toothbrush/toothpaste/floss parting gifts. There is room for improvement on the part of all dentists in the eco-friendly area.

As usual a great experience. Robin was great with the cleaning and was very careful with me due to the fact I have very sensitive teeth. I drive from Austin to Dallas every 6 months just to be able to continue using Dr. Nelson and his staff.

Who ever looks forward to a dental visit? ME! Dr. Nelson and his staff have taken care of our family for over 20 years. Dr. Nelson is a PERFECTIONIST and insists that everything procedure meets his sky high standards. And, hegenuinely cares about his patients. That care and concern is evidenced by every single member of the staff. Cannot give higher marks for the professionalism, concern and dedication to super high standards of everyone on the staff!
