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.

She is the kindest woman. So professional and gentle. The really don't make them like her anymore. A personal touch every visit and really takes the time to talk everything through with you. I wish I could visit her for everything.

- Demosthenes C.

The best. Meticulous, calm and trustworthy. I am so glad to have found Dr Nelson.

- Robert H.

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!

Dr. Nelson has been our dentist for years. We love how attentive she is with her patients, She spends quality time with us on every visit and makes sure our teeth are well taken care of. We go there for regular cleanings. Dr. Nelson has pretty accommodating schedule, I have no problem booking the time I need after the initial appointment.
Dr. Nelson always put her patients first. I am particularly impressed and thankful to have her as my dentist when there's an emergency. She made time to see me and whatever emergency i had became a non-issue when I leave her office. She's amazing.
I like her staff a lot as well. They are always very helpful to me and gets things done quickly and correctly. I've never had any issues with them. They are friendly and resourceful.
This is a practice that you can trust and use for many years. Her office is conveniently located right off the 7 train on 40th Street Station, which is only 10 min away from midtown.

She explains everything she's doing and is very professional, experienced, gentle, timely, humble and honest.
I just had my annual check up with Dr. Nelson today, and it was the best dental experience I ever had! She really takes the time to discuss your needs and lifestyle as it relates to dental health. And she takes courses to continue her education at NYU in related subjects. She knows a lot about breathing and sleep hygiene! (I'm a Yoga Teacher so that's perfect). I would consider her holistic.
I mean, going to the dentist sucks in general, but she made it easier. Oh, and her dental assistant that does the X-rays is lovely -- because there is nothing lovely about biting down on those things and getting a gag reflex. And Tina, the receptionist is really nice and professional which is rare.
I'm going to get my teeth whitened with them for sure.

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!

Dr. Nelson is great. Go to her if you want an excellent, compassionate and through dental care provider and support staff who are equally excellent and helpful! 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 to.

Dr. Heidi Nelson is an excellent dentist. She is extremely detailed with her evaluations and cleanings. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a dentist.

- Netwings R.

Dr. Nelson is a gentle greeter with a reasurring chairside manor. She is introspective to find out your needs and wants. She is honest and wont overcharge you or suggest unwarranted treatment. I was pleased with her staff, prices and demeanor. I went in for a teeth bleaching and was impressed with the results. Others have said nice things about her and I see they were right. Go see her for your dental procedures and you will see I am right also. I put her on my list of favorite persons

Dr. Nelson is probably the best and most personable dentist I have ever been to. Certainly the best one I've been to NYC. I am someone who hates the dentist and avoids going for as long as possible because I find it to be super stressful. Dr. Nelson has changed that I recently had a check up and a cleaning with her. She is actively communicative, telling you exactly what she's doing every step of the way. She asks for your consent regularly throughout the process to make sure you still feel comfortable with what she's doing. She listens to understand the full picture of what is bothering you with your teeth and offers noninvasive and practical solutions. You can tell that she's vastly knowledgable and that she cares about her patients. A really fantastic experience!

My family and I have been coming to Dr Nelson for years. I have never been to another dentist as thorough and meticulous as she is with her work.

- Sam I.

Dr Nelson is the best. I'm so sad I had to move. She's the best dentist I've ever had. They even worked a bit late when I had to get a crown and was leaving town in a few days. Awesome service.

- Mariena S.

Dr. Nelson, knows her stuff. Not only is she talented, skilled and a great personality, her work is more than professional. She cares about her patents comfort, needs and makes sure you are pleased with the results. She gives you 110% and sometimes more

- Bernadette R.

As gentle and thorough as a dentist can be. Dr. Nelson explains her procedures every step of the way. Her front office manager, Tina, is gracious and efficient. A pleasant experience at the dentist? Yes!

- Dorrie Berkowitz

Dr. Nelson is the best dentist in NYC. After years of changing dentists, I finally decided to stick with Dr. Nelson. She makes dentists appointments a pleasure. Her steady hand, knowledge, skill and focus make you feel very confident in her care. I've never felt more comfortable in a dentist chair. The office staff and assistants also provide the same level of professionalism and care as Dr. Nelson. This is the family practice to to go to for you and your entire family.

- Adam Welikson

Dr. Nelson is a miracle worker. She is the best dentist I've ever been to. My whole family goes to her- she's great with kids too! She is extremely thorough and detail-oriented. Her staff is always friendly and professional I highly recommend her.

- Dana Chrisomalis

I have been a patient with Dr. Nelson for over 10 years. She is a warm and caring person and extremely thorough, both with preventive care and dental treatment. She explains everything she does clearly and objectively and helps the patient to make the best choices for procedures. I no longer live full-time in that neighborhood but go there especially to be treated by Dr. NelsonĀ“.

I've had issues with my teeth since I was in elementary school and I've been dealing with dentists since a very young age. I ended up seeing Dr. Nelson since the crowns and bridge that I had previously done, did not hold and I was truly disappointed with the work that my previous dentist had done (a dentist that I went to since I was in high school). It was obvious from the very first visit how competent, capable, patient, and detailed Dr. Nelson is. She was able to fix all of my teeth issues and a year later, I have no issues! I highly recommend Dr. Nelson to anyone who wants a job well done; crowns/bridges/cavities that will be fixed the right way; and to have a dentist who is always pleasant and office staff who treat you professionally and with a smile :)

- Antonia Alafris

Dr. Nelson is truly an artist! The temporary crowns she makes are so good, you wonder why you need the permanent ones, which, of course, you do. ; )
Dr. Nelson considers what is in the best interest of her patients.

- Jerry Banberger

I have been with Dr Nelson for over 15 years. Thorough, compassionate, professional.
