I highly recommend Southtown Dental, Dr. Nelson. Meghan, one of his dental hygienists, is top notch; gives excellent care and instruction. She's the best hygienist I've ever been to, she's amazing. I am one of those people fearful of dentists, but Dr. Nelson is kind, gentle and caring. Office staff is helpful, positive and provide great customer service.

While only my second visit, I was pleased with everything! Office and staff are very welcoming. Hygienist Meagan is super! Explains in detail what she's going to do, what she's done and the progress I've made from my last visit.

Megan is the best! My teeth were shiny and new when she finished with my cleaning and polish. When I got home, my wife said "WOW!" "Your teeth look really good!" "I want to go to her next time." Highly recommend seeing her!

I had a crown replacement today and everyone at Dr. Nelson’s office, including Dr. Nelson do everything they can to make these type of experiences as smooth and painless as possible. I always feel like they care about me and my wellbeing.

I was lucky enough to find Dr. Nelson’ office while visiting Scottsdale. I had a temporary crown come off and my wife remembered seeing an ad for Dr. Nelson at our hotel. I called his office and got the most professional and friendly person. Her name is Britany and she is also the person that greeted me when I came in. Brenda is the second person I met and took care of my dental issue within 30 minutes. She was very personable and professional. Dr. Nelson then came in to check everything and I was out the door. The entire office was extremely nice and professional. As a business professional myself I know how important your staff and appearance of your office is to the success of your business. Dr. Nelson has all of these things going for him. If I was closer than 2000 miles away he would be my new dentist. Thanks again to all of you.

When I was home in Boston, I had a dental problem - dentist back home caused me more problems. Dr. Nelson and his staff helped me, I wish I waited until arriving in Scottsdale I could have saved myself lots of pain.

Dr Nelson and his Hygienists, Megan, not only are they extremely knowledgeable and efficient, they are great individuals and enjoy having my dental work done. If you need dental work done,I would highly recommend Southtown Dental,close to Scottsdale Road and Thomas. When you make your first appointment tell them you read Roy’s review, when you walk out I am sure you will agree with me.

Dr. Nelson and his staff are absolutely amazing!! They were so wonderful with my children and did all that they could to make us feel comfortable. My four year old son was extremely nervous and anxious about seeing the dentist. I was going to go in there with him while he got a cleaning but he felt so comfortable with the ladies there that he went willingly!
