Professional Statement

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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!

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

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!

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!

Every staff member was so polite and welcoming and I was not scared to ask any questions at all to Dr Nelson.
