What Our Patients Are Saying
My son loves Dr nelams. His staff are also so amazing. My son used to hate the dentist, these amazing people make my son love going to the dentist.
Katie was wonderful yesterday. Enjoyed her sweet spirit. She knows her stuff!
Excellent doctor and terrific staff. Very knowledgeable and efficient. Recommend highly
Always a good experience with a very friendly staff. I highly recommend Dr. Nelams .
I had a very pleasant time listening to and telling stories while getting my teeth cleaned. The staff is never to busy to enjoy a laugh with you. Dr. Nelams always puts you at ease AND, my teeth felt great afterwards!
First of all I Love the fact that Dr Nelam''s and his staff are all Christians (and they play Christian music in the office). A year ago a filling came out from another dentist and Dr Nelam's staff quickly worked me in, even though I'd never been there before. Dr Nellams is a kind and professional dentist. Everyone is so nice, and professional. I've had my teeth cleaned there 2x and both of the Dental hygienists have done good jobs cleaning my teeth. This time Sherrie was on vacation and this hygienist even cleaned a few places that had stains from years ago when I had braces. She was very kind, gentle, and easy to talk to.
My husband and I have seen Dr Nelams for many years and have always been impressed and pleased with the kindness of the staff. We took out three year old daughter for her first visit and Miss Stephanie did a fantastic job with her, letting her explore the chair and instruments on her own time and not pushing her to do or try anything she wasn't ready for. It was a very good experience for her first visit. Would definitely recommend to other families.
Always the best care 😊.
The Family Dental Care has a very friendly staff. Always a pleasant experience for a dentist office. They are really focused on the health of your teeth and we'll being.
Very friendly and professional. Answered any questions I had.
