Pay My Bill


"I recently saw Dr Nelson and his staff for a checkup after seeing his now retired predecessor for some time, attracted by the friendly, competent dental treatment. His hygienist and other staff as well as Dr Nelson himself provided equal quality, friendly treatment . I especially appreciated his ready acceptance of my requests for some changes in my treatment, and have no intention of seeking a new dentists." - Stuart C.

Comprehensive Exams in Missoula, MT

Your comprehensive exam will include photographs of your teeth, radiographs (x-rays), diagnosis of gum health, oral cancer screening, finding decay/cavities, charting your existing dental work, and specialized tests on individual teeth as needed.  After the exam, we will work with you to develop the best treatment plan for your needs based on your values and lifestyle. We’ll also show you all the pictures we took so you can see exactly what we see.  

These high-resolution pictures are something that not many other dental offices offer.  Some don't take any photos, and some will take low resolution zoomed in photos with an intraoral camera, but I believe that in order for you to make informed decisions about having treatment done, you need to see what's going on clearly.  Here's an example of some of the typical photos I take on one of my patients:
