Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Nelson comes from a long line of Dentists; he is the fifth person in his family to graduate from dental school. He grew up in Seattle, Washington and attended the University of Washington as an undergraduate. After only 3 years of undergraduate work, he was accepted to the Medical College of Virginia at VCU for Dental School. While in dental school, Dr. Nelson made it a point to bring the latest techniques to him and his peers. He started the first ever Cosmetic Dentistry Group at the school and used this to bring in progressive clinicians to speak at the school.
Since graduating dental school, Dr. Nelson has been a strong believer in using continuing education to ensure that he provides his patients the highest quality care. He has taken more than double the yearly required amount of continuing education classes since his graduation, including courses at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. His primary focuses have been cosmetic techniques and minimally invasive preventative dentistry.
Verified Patient Reviews
His office was very responsive between the time that I booked through ZocDoc and when my appointment occurred. Britney at the front desk was friendly and easy to communicate with. My hygienist was informative and checked in with me about how I was doing and what she was doing throughout my cleaning. Dr. Nelson was also very informative and patient with my questions. I would recommend him and Megan to anyone. The only rough part of my appointment was with the technician who did my x-rays. She was not very in-tune with my discomfort, and kept talking about how she didn't like the technology that she was working with. That made for some awkward/unnecessary conversation. I wouldn't hesitate to work with the team again, however, as she made it clear that she wouldn't be with his office for very much longer. All in all, I'm very satisfied with my visit, and look forward to future appointments with Dr. Nelson and his team.
Fast and super-nice!
Everyone there including Dr. Nelson was so nice! I scheduled a consultation and got in on the next day. The day after, they were able to fix a lot of my teeth and I have a treatment plan set up. They were all very helpful and helped me to work with my budget too. I normally have a lot of anxiety about going to the dentist, but overall it was a very easy and pleasant experience.
My visit here was great. The staff will introduce themselves and shake your hand;offer you something while you wait and are happy at work which makes you feel like they're happy to have you there. Overall comfortable atmosphere.
Megan is a great hygienist! I recommend her 100%
I'm impressed. Everyone is very nice and friendly. The dentist's office is very clean.
This was the most amazingly pleasant visit to a dentist that I've experienced in many years! The office was clean, the staff was very friendly and caring. I was shown around in the office and was explained how they have an open door policy to show that they're extremely careful to sterilizing their instruments and keeping the office safe and clean. I love that the chairs are massagers which help relax you during your visit. Every procedure was explained before and after so that it's understood. Digital images of my teeth were show to help me understand. I seriously can't wait for my next visit! I feel like I've met my new best friends here!!!
Dental hygienist was fantastic, Dr. Nelson is very kind and personable. Entire staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Do not try to push any services that are not needed.
The office is very modern on the inside with all the latest dental technology it appears. The entire staff is very friendly. Dr. Martin is extremely nice and takes his time to explain everything. I'd definitely recommend this dentist!
Rhonda and Brenda were great! I felt really comfortable my first time and as if I knew them for years. Dr. Nelson was very professional and was very knowledgeable within his profession. I will be going back 100% and cant say I have been to be a better dentist!
Rhonda is awesome and makes you feel right at home when you walk in. Meagan was extremely attentive and very informative during my cleaning. This is one of those practices where the staff is so good the doctor has a lot to live up to by the time you reach him.
Wonderful office, great staff and very friendly group of people. I felt so comfortable and accommodated. The office is spotless and tidy.
He was warm and friendly. Did try to sell me things I don't really need. Put in a crown that fell out a month later. He is nice but I am not convinced that he is an excellent dentist. I've had extensive work done in the past and I'd say he is probably average.
The front office is world class and the hygienist and Dr. Nelson made sure that I was comfortable. I came out a lot more knowledgeable and plan to do all my dental work here as long as I'm in the area.
This is an exceedingly well run office. For me the important part of the dental visit is the hygienist as I really don't have major issues to deal with. She did a thorough job and left my teeth feeling great. The icing on the cake is Dr. Nelson. He performed one of the most comprehensive exams I have ever had. His support staff are also wonderful. This is a great practice!
Awesome experience! The staff and hygenists were super friendly and Dr. Nelson made it a point to get to know me as this was my first time at the office. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back :)
very satisfied, friendly staff
Was a great experience. Very Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Everyone in this office was professional, but extremely kind and friendly which is important to me. I definitely will continue going there as long as I live in Arizona!
Great Experience! Everyone was super nice and the office is modern with all the latest technology. They really make sure you are taken care of and are comfortable.
He was great and definitely knew what he was talking about, could have been more engaging with the patient, and when the patient talked, not have such a "i'm right" attitude - Fall of 2014
Very friendly and professional staff.
Everyone was very professional as well as personable. I felt comfortable and well taken care of. Things were exwplained in laymans terms, although news wasn't good. Front desk was multi-task efficient, organized and friendly, although not particularly compassionate.
Everyone was great and very informative.
Best dentist! Great facility and the receptionist (Rhonda) is great!! I tell everyone I know to see him.
Everyone is super nice and friendly. Everything was explained to me in depth. Awesome experience!
Watch what they bill you vs. what they bill the insurance company.
As awesome as a dental visit could have been. Staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I was taken back immediately and given a tour of the office by Rhonda (the amazing front office/receptionist). Rhonda even gives out her cell phone # because she WANTS you to have access to your dentist after office hours if you need anything! Dr. Nelson is a cool, laid back, friendly and funny guy who explains everything so you don't feel like another helpless dental victim. Thanks for the great experience!
By far the best experience i have ever had at any medical office. Brenda, Rhonda, Mayra and Christine were very nice, they were thorough in explaining every single step. They made me feel as comfortable as possile- Rhonda said its my "dental home" and thats how i felt. :-)
Excellent Dentist, careing staff, pain free dentistry. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Rhonda is super sweet and helpful. I really like going I this office. I HIGHLY recommend it. Staff is awesome and the Dr. Is quick and friendly.
Absolutely loved seeing Dr. Nelson. His entire staff was so great and friendly. I have had terrible experiences with dentists in the past and he made my visits not as anxiety-filled. I unfortunately have to transfer due to a change in insurance but am hoping I will get to come back soon!
This was the greatest experience I have ever had at a dentist's office. Rhonda, the women at the front desk was sooo nice and helpful. She did everything she could to make me feel comfortable (even offered me a blanket!). My nurse was great, she knew exactly what she was doing. Dr. Nelson was very sweet and he is very knowledgeable. He explained everything in detail to me. This will now be my regular dentist!
He was an incredibly personable, straight-forward and knowledgeable dentist. I felt like he genuinely cared about my health and experience in his office. His staff goes above and beyond to make what is normally an unpleasant experience a refreshing new way to experience dentistry.
Everyone there is incredibly friendly and helpful. Very pleased with the service.
Not that going to the Dentist is ever the greatest experience, but everything a out my visit was pretty great. Every staff member was so polite and welcoming and I was not scared to ask any questions at all to Dr Nelson. And the front desk receptionist was so helpful, I've never worked with someone so willing to help out a patient and I'm a registered nurse!
Dr. Nelson was professional and friendly. Let me know my options. Fixed the issue right away. The office medical staff was very friendly an made you feel comfortable.
Awesome!. Everybody in the office were very helpful, Rhonda called to change my appt because I was new. Ended up having an emergency crown put on that day, and he rushed the service so I could have a new in a week instead of the original 10 days.
Considering I wasn't a patient and this was an emergency, I don't see how it could have gone better. Really great team! Highly professional. Everyone I came into contact with was just great.
Great, helpful, nice people working with him.
Dr. Nelson is awesome and provides very excellent insights into oral hygiene as well as detailed explanations into potential issues.
Great, extremely friendly and worked with my schedule. The dentist talked to me and did not rush me at all. Will definitely be going back to this dentist!
Friendly, knowledgeable doctor and staff with quick assistance.
My son is totally blind and this office was the best I have ever taken him to! So incredibly patient and welcoming to him. The staff was wonderful! I would recommend them to anyone!
I was extremely happy with my visit with DR. Nelson and his staff. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a caring professional dental practice. I scheduled my next visit and my wife is going to see Dr. Nelson next week. We couldn't be happier.
Was amazing and his staff was so friendly! Really put me at ease and I HATE going to the dentist. Dr. Nelson was beyond great
