Scheduling First Visit
FREE consultations for all High School students!
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation and a panoramic x-ray and or a CAT Scan if applicable explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, surgery can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. Please go to Patient Registration Forms under Patient Information and print out all paperwork; complete, sign and bring into office.
If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day. We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact Dr. Nelson provides many types of dental/facial services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays.
