Made sure it was pain free and also limited my contact with anyone but the staff. Fantastic, friendly, helpful practice.

Dr. Nelson was recommended by a knowledgeable, retired dentist. Friendly staff, intake done effectively, seen on time. Nelson has an engaging, thoughtful manner. He explained his findings at each step of the thorough exam, and answered questions with a depth and clarity unusual in my (decades of) experience with dentists. While not exactly looking forward to more dental work, I feel that I’m in good hands.

Dr. James Nelson DDS is the first dentist I have complete faith in. He and his staff professionally and with much kindness took care of this 70 year old scary cat. Though I am a war veteran familiar with pain, I have had nothing but bad experiences with dentist's all my life. Then I met Dr. Nelson and staff. They respected me and understood my fear... and made sure my dignity was not violated. Beyond that they have always been cognizant of the costs and let me know what was going on.
