FRIENDLY and no nonsense dentistry. For me 30yrs since not going to the dentist I couldn't be more pleased.

  • J. Ackerman, Aug 2020

Always exceeds my expectations! Dr. Nelson is outstanding, so understanding, and knows his business well.

  • M. Taravella Mar 2020

Central Point Family Dentistry offers the very best care for me and my family. From the front door to the chair, Dr. Nelson and his team make ‘going-to-the-dentist’ an uplifting experience for not just me and my wife, but for our young sons! They provide exceptional guidance, attention to detail, and useful experience that makes our smiles healthier. When I was a TV news anchor, I had confidence in my on-air smile thanks to Dr. Nelson. I highly recommend Central Point Family Dentistry for all of your oral hygiene needs.

  • Dave De Rurange, former news anchor at KTVL News10 in Medford Mar 2020


Today I recorded into my tiny blue book a few of my favorite things during this Coronavirus interlude.

I went to my semi annual dental appointment. My first venture out to be with people since the lockdown.

As I walked into the office, Mandy, the receptionist, greeted me with her warmth. She called me by name, "Hello, Marey."

The atmosphere is always receiving, it doesn't present you with the feeling of "I can't wait to leave."

I always feel welcomed. So much so that the normal tension melts inside me.

As I was ushered to "my chair" I relaxed because I knew the hands of those I entrusted with my precious teeth would be gentle.

The hearts of those I entrusted with my precious teeth would be so attentive to my comfort and person.

I love the meaningful conversation after six months between visits. I feel known as "Marey" not "Patient #7."

With the dental instruments and their fingers in my mouth I cannot always respond immediately in a graceful manner. But I feel surrounded by a loving, caring, competent circle of real, authentic people with whom I can connect.

Thank you, thank you for being such a great team of caring for me, for us who come to be serviced by Nelson and his team.

  • Marey T. Mar 2020

Staff demonstrated concern and interest in patient's problems and addressed those adequately. Dr. Nelson was upfront with recommendations options and cost. Excellent customer service from all staff.

  • K. Miller Sep 2019

  • I. Bergstedt Apr 2019


I neglected my mouth over the years! If it wasn't for all of you making me feel welcomed I'd never have made it this far! I hope you always know how much you are appreciated. 

  • Lorraine L. Feb 2019

Both Doctor and Liz made me feel comfortable and visited with me. Explained everything and even took me in on a moment's notice. So nice and kept me well informed, made me feel very at ease (as much as they could). Very considerate, friendly, helpful, honest, good listeners, careful, and I "enjoyed" the people. 10 STARS OUT OF 5!!! I can't praise them enough! 

  • J. Witt Feb 2018


...Well I went back to Dr Nelson and he was just as good as the first visit or better. He even called me to see if I was doing well. Can't say enough good things about him. Try him you will enjoy him.

  • A. Pucillo Jan 2018


I am one of those people who put off going to dentist when I needed a new one. I got a card in the mail, months ago. Now I needed a dentist, called and due to cancellation I was in that day. Dr Nelson and staff were so so nice. What I am saying here, due to childhood fears to bad experiences in the 50 and 60's, I never outgrew that fear of dentists. Then I came into his office, staff are outstanding, hygienist met with me and then came Dr, Nelson. AMAZING! Totally considered my fears and comfort. Now today, had to have extraction and had a filling down. Here I am 4 hours later, pain free, not even ibuprofen needed. First time in my life I sat in a dental chair without clenched fists. All because of Dr Nelson and staff. I am so blessed to have found him as MY dentist. Cannot go wrong. If you have fears, you won't after your first visit, guaranteed.

Due to my severe fear of dentists I have never been so relaxed! Entire staff understood my fear. Thank you, thank you! You are all amazing!!

  • Judy Z July 2017

I went for my first consultation with my new dentist in Astoria, Dr. Leinassar, yesterday. He commented on what a great job my Central Point team did for me on my implants and bridge. Thanks my team!!!

  • Marty Mar 2017


Exceeded my expectations! Very thorough and friendly. Thank you!

Dr. Nelson explained various scenarios regarding the tooth due to its condition. He was upfront and provided information on what to look for in the future. Mandy explained the plan of care after my first appointment. Thank you to both Mandy & Dr. Nelson.

Friendly staff--lots of fun to chat with. Going to the dentist is always intimidating but Dr. Nelson and group make it as easy as possible.

  • Patient Survey Jan 2017


Expectations were met with what was needed to be done. My experience with extracting the infected tooth was done exceedingly painless and professionally.

  • Patient Survey Dec 2016

  • Patient Survey Nov 2016

You guys are good. I sat around all afternoon waiting for my mouth to start hurting and it never has. I'm not even sore from the shots. Outstanding, and that from a dental coward. ha.

  • Kaylee Nov 2015


Thank you for restoring a little bit of my confidence. Thank you for giving me my smile back, one that I no longer have to hide with my hands or my hair. Thank you for making it possible to eat almost any food I'd like without the extreme pain I had with my natural and very bad teeth. I really appreciate all the time, patience with me, and care that you put into all my appointments and making sure my dentures look as natural as possible. I really truly appreciate you! 

  • Kelly H. Aug 2015

Super Awesome-- I love the boy dentist

  • Jamie J (Age 7) Aug 2015

You are the ONLY human being on this earth that can give my daughter a shot (let alone in her mouth!!!!). You are an amazing dentist

  • Emily C. July 2015

By FAR the best Dentist I have ever seen. I trust Dr. Nelson completely. Not only was he pleasant to talk to, he understood my concerns, was interested in me, and was doing his best to maximize the benefits I could get out of my visit while minimizing my cost. What I like most about him is that he doesn't try to "over-diagnose" you to get extra money out of unneeded procedures. He treats you with respect, and is very, very knowledgeable. If I hadn't moved out of state, I would joyfully go to see Dr. Nelson for all of my oral care needs.
