about us

We try to make our office as welcoming and home-like for our patients as possible, since we believe that comfort and trust are the biggest factors in a positive experience at the dentist.

We also strive to accommodate our patients’ busy schedules. We’re open Monday through Thursday from 7 A.M. to 3 P.M., and we offer flexible appointments. We also have two hygienists on staff for your convenience in scheduling cleanings.

Always a smooth experience. by C M.
My wife and I have been seeing Josh for nearly 20 years. Until I switched to him I thought going to the dentist had to be painful. Josh and his hygienists are gentle yet thorough. Friendly and helped too. Because they do such a great job of maintenance the only dental procedure I've had is to replace a filling I got when I was 10. Great guy. Great staff. Great dentist. by Daniel H.
Really like this office and their whole crew. DeDe is the best hygienist ever! by John S.

Dr. Nellis and his staff are the best. Dr. Nellis always takes time for his patients and his care is truly top notch.

I’ve always had a fear of the dentist since I was a little girl and I can honestly say that went away after I saw Dr. Nellis. by Erin W.
