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.

  • "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."
