Dr. NelsonFamily Dentist

    I grew up in Cedar Rapids, graduated from Jefferson High School, and went on to receive my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Mount Mercy University.  I completed my dental training at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry and shortly after, became a part of the Dental Touch team in August 2018.  I am a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the Iowa Dental Association and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

    My passion growing up was playing volleyball.  I started around the age of eight and continued through my time in college at Mount Mercy.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, baking, working out, and playing with my dogs.  I’m a sucker for reality tv and a big bowl of ice cream!

    Building a long-lasting relationship is key to creating an enjoyable dental experience, one of our main goals here at Dental Touch.  I strive to improve the overall health of each patient while maintaining a fun and relaxed environment. I also believe that lifelong learning is important for success and growth as a provider, which will lead to the best patient care possible.

    I am grateful to be a part of such an awesome team, and I encourage anyone seeking dental care to come check out Dental Touch! You won’t be disappointed!
