Dr. Casey Nelson, DDS
I love my job. I got into dentistry because I love the variety. Every day I meet new and interesting people. Whether it's an interesting conversation, or an interesting procedure to make your teeth healthy or improve your smile, I try to treat everyone as an individual. I take a lot of pride in my work and I hope I can be of service to you some day as your family dentist. When not in the office, I try to stay as active as possible. I have played hockey most of my life and continue to play almost every week of the year. I also enjoy playing golf (poorly) and have recently re-taken up tennis after a 20 year hiatus. I grew up in Minneapolis and attended high school at Minneapolis Southwest. I haven't ventured far from my roots and still live in the Uptown area. I did leave Minneapolis for college and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology with a minor in Business from Colorado College and the University of St. Thomas, graduating with honors in 1998. Before dental school, I worked as an EMT, and then in the pharmaceutical industry for about 3 years. I graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 2005. I am a strong advocate for advanced dental training, and am constantly expanding my knowledge and skills through an extensive amount of ongoing continuing education. I am a proud member of multiple local and national dental associations.

Dr. Nelson says...

Dental implants placed in our office.  All implant patients are pre-diagnosed with a cone beam 3D scan of the area before placing the implants.   Many of our implants are placed with a surgical guide made from the 3D scan to assure perfect placement.  

Dr. Nelson is a preferred provider of Invisalign.  The title of Preferred Provider is awarded by Invisalign based on Dr Nelson's experience, amount of training, and number of completed Invisalign cases.
