"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 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!"

"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."

"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."
"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!"
"I have been with Dr Nelson for over 15 years. Thorough, compassionate, professional."
"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."
"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 :)"
"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. Nelson´."
"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."
"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!"
"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."
