We can’t wait to start this journey with you. Dr. Nelson and his staff are people-people (people-persons?). Honestly, we love learning about our patients’ lives and goals. Because orthodontic treatment takes place over several months, it’s important that you choose an office and doctor you enjoy visiting. Our staff is welcoming and fun and will strive to make you feel special each time you come in, which may be less frequent than you’d expect. Our advanced braces systems allow for new patients to be seen every 10 weeks for the first few visits, which is a perk busy parents seem to really enjoy. Once we get closer to finishing, we will want to see you a little more often.
What To Expect On Your First Visit
Expect a warm and competent team to welcome you to the office. Our orthodontic consultations are held in a comfortable and private room, and once you’ve gotten to know us a little bit (and heard a few cheesy jokes from Dr. Nelson), we will discuss your goals and possibly take some x-rays to get a better idea of you or your child’s orthodontic needs. After reviewing all of the diagnostic information, Dr. Nelson will take the time to explain the options and tools available for successful treatment.
In order to give you an accurate cost estimate during your consultation, it is necessary to have all of your insurance information before your visit so that we can determine what amount your insurance will cover (Fill out new patient forms below). If you don’t currently have dental insurance, don’t worry! We offer affordable payment plans. Our treatment coordinator will be happy to answer any financial questions you may have.
If everything sounds good (aka, Dr. Nelson’s jokes have won you over), we will gladly accommodate starting treatment the same day to eliminate another appointment from your busy schedule and get going right away on your perfect smile.
Not everyone has time to schedule an appointment, take off work, and come to the office for a full exam. If you would like Dr. Nelson to take a quick look, he can provide you with some information about your teeth to help you decide if you want to take the next step and come to the office for x-rays and a complete diagnosis before starting treatment. It is 100% necessary to have an x-ray and an in-office exam to assure that your bite can be corrected and your teeth can be straightened without unforeseen complications! This digital consultation gives you a good idea of how long your case might take and what it might cost. Digital consultations are subject to change unless you provide flawless records for us to make an accurate diagnosis. We hope to see you soon!
Here at Nelson Family Orthodontics, our goal is your satisfaction, which means we are committed to making your orthodontic treatment affordable. We offer 0% interest financing for all of our patients for up to 24 months. We also offer affordable payment plans for longer than 24 months if desired (administrative fees may apply). Our treatment coordinator is happy to design a plan that will work for you and your family!
We are also in-network with most PPO insurance providers, as well as Medicaid. Our team is happy to help you with any insurance filing to ensure you get the most out of your benefits!
Because we offer affordable monthly payment plans without charging a large down payment, it is necessary that patients make their payments on time each month. However, we know that life is filled with difficulties and can get crazy sometimes – if you’re experiencing a hardship, please contact us so that we can work out a payment arrangement with you.

I had braces before I came to Dr. Nelson for 5 years and I still had a cross-bite and my teeth weren’t completely straight. I always felt scared to get braces again but I put my trust in... Dr. Nelson and he fixed my bite and teeth. I’m so happy with them! Everyone always makes you feel welcome the moment you walk in the door. I would recommend Dr. Nelson and his team to anyone! :)read more
Dr Nelson is the best. All my kids go here! They have a very kid friendly office and it helps my kids feel better about getting braces.
It was an awesome experience. Same day for my braces and Angelina and Makenna made my experience comfortable with their great customer service.
I got my aligners on today, and I was a bit anxious before hand. Anahi was the sweet lady that did the procedure. She was so patient and asked how I was doing throughout the process. It... definitely made me feel reassured I was in good hands and it didn’t take long at all. I’ve been very pleased with the the staff at this office. Always warm and welcoming and patient which is huge for me. Thank you and can’t wait to see my new smile soon! :) - Maria O.read more
