Colorado Springs Dentist, Brent Nielsen, spent his early life just south of Denver in Highlands Ranch where he moved with his parents (Les and Carol) and brothers (Scott and Aaron) in the summer of 1989. He quickly grew to love Colorado and all that it had to offer. Hiking, biking, skiing and fishing became favorite pastimes during countless hours exploring the mountains along the Front Range. In 1996 he graduated from Highlands Ranch High School and headed off for new adventures in the mountains of Idaho and Utah as he completed his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University. While in college, Brent met and married his wife Julie and they both headed off to Florida where he pursued his dental education at Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. While in Florida Dr. Nielsen and his wife welcomed their first child, Clementine, into their home during his final year of dental school. After a grueling four years of rigorous dental training he earned his dental (DMD) degree and began planning his future. The opportunity arose to continue his dental education further at Yale University in New Haven Connecticut. Dr. Nielsen was one of three young dentists to receive the invitation to study with the Yale University School of Medicine General Practice Residency program. This highly competitive program opened new doors and an infinitely greater understanding of the practice of dentistry. While at Yale he gained hands on experience and individualized training by some of the most well respected and highly specialized dentists and medical professionals in the world. Included in this residency were rotations through internal and emergency medicine, anesthesia and general surgery, as well as oral surgery and pediatric dentistry. This experience has made Dr. Nielsen uniquely qualified to handle a wide variety of complex dental needs while providing patients with the comfort, clinical expertise and care they should expect and deserve. Following his residency in Connecticut, Dr. Nielsen decided to bring his talents back to the great state of Colorado! In the summer of 2009 he returned to Denver and began practicing as an associate dentist at a couple different group practices. During this time he and his wife had their second child Lily, giving him his long awaited “Native Coloradan.” Clementine soon warmed up to her new little sister and have since become inseparable. Having two girls and an overload of estrogen in the house has helped Dr. Nielsen reestablish his love for the Colorado mountains and hone his skiing, snowboarding and fishing skills to unimaginable levels! While appreciative of the opportunities working in these group practices afforded him, Dr. Nielsen felt he could be of greater assistance to patients in a solo practice setting. So, the search was on to find the perfect place to practice. After many hours, days and weeks searching, he found a place to land in the foothills area of Northwest Colorado Springs in the Mountain Shadows Neighborhood. Being one of the practicing dentists in Colorado Springs has been a great experience for Dr. Nielsen where he has forged lasting bonds with his patients and the communities of Mountain Shadows, Peregrine, Rockrimmon and the Garden of the Gods areas.

Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
