Professionals blending art and science for a beautiful smile
Dr. Nelson is dedicated to the concept of lifetime learning. In fact, he's logged over 1600 hours of postgraduate education beyond dental school, or about 55 hours per year; far beyond the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners' required 12 hours annually. As an active, perpetual student, he's convinced that a 'completed' education marks the end of a vibrant, progressive practice.
Dr. Nelson graduated from Jasper High School in Jasper, Texas in 1976. He was president of his senior class and president of the National Honor Society. He attended Texas A & M University in College Station from 1976-1979 and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology. He attended Baylor College of Dentistry from 1979 to 1983 and received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in June of 1983. That August, he established his practice on Terrell Road in Greenville. He moved his office to its present location in 1998.
Dr. Nelson is committed to continuing dental education. He earned his Fellowship (1993) and Mastership (2004) in the Academy of General Dentistry. Of the 37,000 members of the Academy of General Dentistry, only 2000 have earned master distinction since its founding in 1956. He participated in numerous postgraduate continuing education courses most notably at the Pankey Institute of Key Biscayne, Florida, The Center for Professional Development in Scottsdale, Arizona, and the MAXI-AAID implant and oral surgery residency in Atlanta and Augusta, Georgia. He is also a member of the Hunt County Study Club, the Texas Dental Association, and The American Dental Association. He currently participates in numerous hours of continuing education annually to aid in his commitment to excellence in treatment.
He is a member of numerous Dental Study Clubs, is past president of the Greenville Daybreak Rotary Club, and is actively involved at Ridgecrest Baptist Church and the Greenville Christian School. In 2004, he received the Greenville Chamber of Commerce small businessman of the year award. Dr. Nelson and his wife, Beth have four children and three grandchildren. He enjoys flying, hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities. In addition, he and his family have participated in a number of ministry and service endeavors both at home and abroad, and will continue to do so in the future.
As a team and as individuals, we make it our responsibility to be familiar with the latest techniques and materials available.
They know who I am and call me by name. When I'm getting work done, everyone is friendly and personable. They remember things about my family and my life which puts me at ease because dental work stresses me out. Always friendly. Always helpful. I love this office.
