Nellis Family Dentistry is a privately owned general dental practice, which means you can rest assured knowing you will see Dr. Nellis at every one of your dental visits. We strive to provide you and your family with personalized, individual dental care using the latest technology and dental materials in a comfortable, relaxing environment.
At Nellis Family Dentistry, we dedicate a large portion of our practice providing preventative dental care for you and your family. Preventative dentistry includes routine exams, x-rays, and cleanings as well as oral cancer screenings, fluoride, and sealants. Dr. Nellis recognizes that good oral health care begins with proper prevention and she and her staff will help educate you on the proper methods of brushing and flossing so you may better take care of your teeth at home. We want to ensure that all of our patients have healthy, clean smiles!
Technology and Amenities
Nellis Family Dentistry wants to provide you with dental care in the best environment possible. We offer digital x-rays (very little radiation) and intraoral cameras to aid in the diagnostic process, giving Dr. Nellis a very clear picture about what is going on in your mouth. We also offer tv in our treatment rooms so you may relax easier while receiving care. Our pediatric patients love being able to watch cartoons during their appointments!
Same Day Treatment and Special Appointment Times
We recognize that our patients have busy daily schedules and often take time off work to attend their appointments. If time allows in our schedule, Dr. Nellis may be able to perform recommended treatment on the same day as your initial or recall exam. Additionally, Nellis Family Dentistry is open on selected Saturdays to help you and your family select the right time to take care of your dental needs.
Emergency Dental Care
Nellis Family Dentistry recognizes that emergencies with your teeth and mouth will happen from time to time. We are happy to offer same day appointments and urgent treatment for dental pain, infections, trauma, lost/broken fillings, broken crowns, and broken teeth.
At Nellis Family Dentistry, we strive to get to know our patients and develop lifelong relationships with you and your family. In order to meet this goal, we have a patient-centered environment and work to educate our patients about their treatment options and diagnosis. To help meet your restorative needs, Nellis Family Dentistry offers composite (white or tooth-colored) fillings, all-porcelain crowns, bridges, partial dentures, complete dentures, root canals, and implant restorations.
If you are looking for ways to improve the appearance of your smile, Nellis Family Dentistry offers several treatment options. For patients looking to have a whiter, brighter smile, we offer in-office ZOOM! Whitening or we can fabricate custom take-home bleach trays. If having straight teeth is important to you, Dr. Nellis can help you achieve your treatment goal through the use of Invisalign. These procedures, when combined with proper restorative care, can help you achieve a healthier smile and improve your overall oral care.
If you or your child take part in recreational activities or contact sporting events, your teeth might be at risk for injury. At Nellis Family Dentistry, we can fabricate you a custom-fit mouth guard to help protect your teeth from injury. Just as prevention of oral disease is important, so is protection from injury. We strive to preserve the beautiful smiles of our patients!
Nitrous Oxide and Sedation Dentistry
Nellis Family Dentistry offers a wide range of general dentistry procedures. We realize that some of our patients have dental anxiety and need help relaxing during dental procedures. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) which is a very safe method to help you relax and feel more comfortable in our office. If you are still not able to relax enough for treatment, Dr. Nellis is also trained in sedation dentistry where pharmacologic methods (a pill) can be administered to help you more fully relax for safe and effective dental treatment.
