Our commitment to going that extra “smile” is truly what sets us apart from the rest.
To do this, we believe that investing in advanced tools like 3-D dental imaging, digital x-rays, CEREC same-day crowns, WaterLase water-powered laser dentistry, and iTero Scanner is a must.
We don’t skimp out on technology because we know it helps us deliver the best possible care to our patients, ensuring their smiles stay healthy and happy for years to come.

FANTASTIC! They helped my 2 month old with his tongue, lip, cheek ties, and immediately made a huge difference in all the areas he was struggling. He is even happier and far less fussy- he’s finally slept good for the first time in his short 11 weeks of life! Couldn’t be happier I was referred to them, and for their help with my little guy!
This is a great dental office. Everyone is very friendly and professional. They take the time to explain everything and don’t make me feel rushed when I have questions. Dr. Nelson and her team get an A+.
This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had at the dentist or doctor. I haven’t been to the dentist in 7 years, largely due to a bad experience. Haley (hygienist) was super knowledgeable, friendly, and answered all of my questions. She even helped me develop a plan to get my dental health where it needs to be in the future. Blaine (dentist) was friendly and knowledgeable as well! I highly recommend this office. I never thought I would be happy walking out of a dentist office. Thank You Dental Touch!
