The Best, 8/18/2014

Dr. Nelson has a clean, professional, and friendly office. I enjoy Dr. Nelson's humor, honest and professional manner. I give him and his office due credit to the fact that I have never had a... cavity in my adult years.

Look no further!!!

I've lived in many cities and have always taken care of my teeth so I've been to just as many dentists. So when I say that Dr. Bruce Nelson is the best you can take it to the bank. He is ahead of the curve in equipment and technology. Add to this the wonderful hygienist Wendy and you can just relax and put yourself in their care.

Great Neighborhood Dentist

Dr. Nelson has been my dentist for many years. He is up to date with the necessary skills and equipment. But, if it wasn't for Wendy handling my quarterly visits..... Of course we all know that great businesses have an efficient, knowledgeable, and pleasant staff. Dr. Nelson has done this with his practice and will retain my business for a long time. f you are looking for a quality dental practice for you and your family I recommend Dr. Nelson DDS & Wendy.

Quality dental care w/minimal discomfort

I've been seeing Dr Nelson and his staff for a few years now. I've had numerous fillings, a root canal and crowns. In every case I felt like the work was performed with great attention to detail, with the intent of doing the absolute best job possible. Dr Nelson also does a great job for those of us who loathe the stick of a needle - he numbs the area first, and goes slowly, so I rarely feel discomfort while he injects anesthetic. Making dental care (almost) painless makes it a lot easier to keep seeing the dentist on a regular basis.

The Best and forget the rest

I have had the pleasure of having Dr. Neson and his staff keep my smile in great shape for over 13 years. The professionalism is unpresidented and the value is great. Sincerely Bob

One of Dr. Nelson's first patients and still going

I have been a patient of Dr. Nelson since he graduated from Dental School in Tucson in the 70's. During those many years I had the misfortune to be directed to other dentists due to dental plan requirements. Needless to say I have been back with Dr. Nelson and Wendy (since she came onboard many years ago) and have recommended the dental practice to many others. Dr. Nelson is very thorough, diligent and up to date in his practice. Wendy is very gentle and competent in her area of dental hygene.

Excellent Care

I have been a patient of Dr. Nelson and Wendy for over 20 years. They provide excellent regular care and when I've had an emergency problem, Dr. Nelson is always available. I've recommended him to my family and friends over the years. Dr. Nelson and his staff stay current with new technology and always ensure their patients receive the best care. If you are looking for a highly qualified and caring dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Nelson!

Worth the Flight!

A few years ago, I had Dr. Nelson do an exceptional job on veneers across my front teeth--I could finally smile with confidence! Shortly afterward, I moved out of state. A motorbike crash left my teeth needing serious repair again. I went to several different dentists (Chicago area), but wasn't impressed with their work--my teeth didn't look the same. I called Dr. Nelson and he arranged to see me over a weekend, with a rush order from his lab. I was very relieved to get my great looking teeth back! Definitely worth the flight! Great guy & excellent dentist!

The worst, most arrogant.

Had two crowns put in, one unfinished, unglazed. I could maybe understand the lab not catching that, but the dentist, who puts a crown in "permanently" would at least check it out first. The 2nd crown put in, at the same time, a molar, was too long. The next day when I bit down on a sandwich, there was a crunch/ screech. The crown was so sharp, I thought it had cracked. I called, went in and was nearly laughed out of the place, He was totally placating and condescending. He never took x-rays. A week later,a piece of a lower molar broke off caused the upper crown being too long.Will not give me a itemized bill. Terrible!

Kudos for Dr Nelson

I had known for a while that I needed gum surgery,but had put it off. By the time I found Dr. Nelson and learned about his Lanap surgery, I feared it was too late for me. Terrified, I made and appointment and can not explain the relief I felt when he said he could help me. It's now been 3 months and I had my first scheduled cleaning and his hygienist said I'm healing fine. Whew! I would recommend that anyone make an appointment with Dr. Nelson. He and his whole company are the finest folks around and most importantly, they do good work! They work miracles. Barbara Petty

Worth the twenty+ mile drive from East Mesa

Dr. Nelson, Wendy, and the entire staff are fantastic. I've been driving 20+ miles for years from East Mesa to their office. I'm sure I pass fifty dentists along the way but I will go to nobody else but Dr. Nelson. Both Wendy and the Doc have an excellent bedside manner, the office is comfortable and clean, and the staff is very professional and always freindly. I love the laser that they use for root canals. No kidding...had a root canal done, went up the street to Burger King and ate a burger and fries with no pain. If you need a dentist or hygenist...look no further. Rich M
