“Dr. Nelson-

I am a new patient and I wanted to let you know what a great experience I had in your office yesterday. I am very tense when I visit the dentist because I had a bad experience at another dentist a few years ago.

It was a wonderful surprise when Kathy offered me paraffin wax for my hands and a warm neck wrap while I was able to watch TV when having my teeth cleaned. Your amenities were a fantastic distraction and allowed me to relax throughout my appointment.

In addition, your hygienist Kahty was so nice and incredibly knowledgeable. She really took the time to teach me about my teeth.

I learned more about my teeth in one appointment at your practice then I had in 20 years with my prior dentist.

I am truly glad I switched to A Perfect Smile for my dental needs and I willl recommend your practice to my family and friends.

Thanks for a WOW experience.”

– Katherine J. Caprio

“Dear Dr. Nelson and Staff,I want to thank you for the wonderful service I received last week after breaking a tooth.

I called at 8:00A.M. and you were able to fit me in and repair my tooth that same morning.

I appreciate Dr. Nelson’s sincere concern about my dental health and friendly atmosphere the staff provides.

Thank You!”

– Melanie Moll

“Dear Dr. Nelson,

I feel like a new woman! For several years I postponed major work on my teeth because I feared the process and was unsure if the results would be worth the pain.

However, there was NO pain!  Even the novacain injections were painless- no shot s on the roof of my mouth and absolutely no discomfort during the prep work for my new crowns.

Friends and family compliment my new look and I am no longer self conscious about my smile.

A million thanks to you and Lisa and your very professional staff.”

With Sincere Appreciation,
– Mary Ann B.

“Due to past dental experiences I was very apprehensive about having extensive dental work done. My experience with Dr. Nelson was exceptional. The procedure was quick, painless, and very efficient.

I am very pleased with the work the office has done and would recommend no hesitations for anyone else who needs restorative work done.”

– C. Jewel

“Dear Dr. Bob and Doctorette Pat,

Many, many thanks for all your talented expertise, work and patience in giving me such a pretty smile- one of my very favorite things to do!

Also being able to eat and chew properly is greatly appreciated (the last time my daughter got lobster for dinner, I had to pass cause I couldn’t chew the meat enough to swallow).

As you might guess, after smiling, one of my preferred activities is cooking and eating and it’s truly a pleasure to do so in comfort.”

Many thanks to you both,
– Joan

– Pat

“Dear Dr. Nelson and the entire “A Perfect Smile” team,

I wanted to hank you all for everything you did to make my visits to your office as comfortable as possible. I’m sure you’ve heard this before but I was very anxious about coming in for a routine cleaning and there I found out I needed to come for a follow up appointment.

Talk about a feeling of “oh boy, how fast can I get outta here!”

Anyway, I hardly noticed anything and I left both appointment feeling great and a smile on my face.

As soon as I walked in the door, I was greeted with smiling faces and words of welcome.

I felt instantly at ease.Kathy was wonderful as she settled me in for my cleaning. She talked me through the whole procedure and was very patient with me when I asked questions. Pat helped me settle in for my follow up appointment.

She sat and talked with me and kept my mind from worrying about the upcoming procedure.

She and Dr. Nelson worked quickly and to be honest I couldn’t believe it when it was over. I don’t remember any dentist visit EVER being that easy and stress free. I can only hope all my future visits go as smoothly I’ll never want to skip one again.”

Thank you all for everything!!
– Heatherton Gallagher

“So happy with the results of everyone’s hard work! Another dentist said it couldbe be done but Dr. Nelson and his staff proved him so wrong!”
