Go see her for your dental procedures and you will see I am right also. I put her on my list of favorite persons."
    Netwings R. ASTORIA, NY

My favorite thing that Dr. Nelson does is when I show up and mention I haven't flosses as often as I should, she says "Well, now is a great opportunity to start again!" No shaming, not tsking, just positivity and support. Love this dentist and you will too!"
    Elena Y. Brooklyn, NY
  • "You cannot have a better experience than with Dr. Nelson. She is always pleasant and smiling, and has the most gentle touch I've ever had, and I've gone to many dentists. She is meticulous in everything she does, and explains each step of the procedure. If further treatment is warranted, she explains why and tells you all your options. And if no further treatment is needed, she explains why as well. After your visit, if you've had any kind of difficult procedure, she will call the next day to check up on you.

    Her front office person, Tina, is just wonderful. Friendly and efficient, she has all the administrative tasks fully under control.

    All in all, a very pleasant and professional experience. Thank you, Dr. Nelson!"
    Dorrie B. BEECHHURST, NY
  • "Dr. Nelson is a wonderful dentist! I feel so lucky that I live only a block from her. She is detailed, thorough, understanding, and warm. I feel very taken care by her. Tina, who runs the front desk and scheduling, is also super great and will proactively follow up with you if you are looking for a particular time/day of week. Highly recommend Dr. Nelson to everyone!"
    Robert H. Queens, NY

    Kitten M. Queens, NY
  • "Adulting. No one wants to do it. That includes going to the dentist... which would normally make me shudder but, not this time! Dr. Nelson was so thorough and proactive, and made me feel like I was her only patient. Even though I was an end of the day patient she had so much vibrancy that I would've never guessed she was working all day. She explained everything and made sure I understood everything. I left with a clean mouth and no worries! I didn't feel judged (which is something we are all worried about) and I even happily scheduled my next appointment.
    12/10 would recommend her for your next dental appointment."
    Alexandra M. Queens, NY
