Both my daughter and I are apprehensive about her needing braces. Both Dr. Nielson and Shellie were so great about calming some of our anxieties. I'm glad we were referred to this office!

The experience was great! Everyone was amazing. The only problem was when getting my Invisalign photos done the lady doing them had no idea what she was doing and was hurting my mouth. I left with cuts on my gums because of it.

I was very impressed. We had been to see another orthodontist previously and decided to switch to Dr. Nielson recently. He took his time explaining everything, his staff was amazing, and the office is "awesome" according to my son. :)

Dr Nielson and his staff are amazing!! He and his staff spoke directly to my 12 year old son and explained everything that needs to be done. This gave my son the confidence to make an educated decision if he wantedto start today or next week. I greatly appreciate their promptness and professionalism throughout the appointment. We love Advanced Orthodontics and will recommend them to everyone!

Extremely professional and pleasant staff, reasonable pricing, and Dr. Nielson was very engaged in the whole process. My daughter wanted braces so badly that day, and despite the typical process requiring a second visit to put the braces on,Dr. Nielson saw how excited she was and found a way to get it done that day!
