Nelson Dental Group
Nelson Dental Group was established by Dr. Fenn E. Nelson in 1955, at a time when Fullerton could boast of only seven total area Dentists. Since then the practice has continued to faithfully serve the area by providing patient centered, high quality dentistry. With the addition of the newest Doctor, Nelson Dental Group now continues it’s legacy of service with a third generation dentist.
The practice is located near downtown Fullerton and proudly serves the community as well as surrounding areas including Anaheim, Brea, Yorba Linda, La Habra, Placentia, Buena Park and many others.
Dr. H. Curt Nelson
Dr. H. Curt Nelson graduated from the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni, School of Dentistry in 1979. Since that day, and for the last 34 years, he has been serving the people of the Fullerton, California area with kindness and compassion. Dr. Nelson has completed countless hours of Continuing Education to ensure that he, as well as his entire staff, are able to provide the most up to date and effective dentistry for his patients. Dr. Nelson values treatment options that are long established, conservative and proven effective, while still evaluating and embracing new technology as it becomes beneficial to those he serves.
For Dr. Nelson, the experience of treating patients has been, and continues to be, a joyful endeavor. Getting to know his patients on a personal level is one of Dr. Nelson’s favorite aspects of dentistry. Many of his patients have been with the practice since his career began and have made his years in the office time well spent.
Dr. Thomas C. Nelson
Dr. Thomas C. Nelson also graduated, in 2009, from the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni, School of Dentistry. Upon graduation he entered into service with the United States Army, treating thousands of patients from all over the country. His love for the Soldiers drove him to continual excellence in patient care as well as solidified in him the drive to treat patients as they deserve to be treated.
While serving in the Army, Dr. Tom completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (A.E.G.D.) 12-month certificate program. The year long training, spent in Columbus, Georgia, offered education in all dental specialties far beyond what is achieved in dental school programs. He was in the top of the residency class, and was awarded highest honors in Endodontics (root canals) and Periodontics (treatment of gum tissue).
From there Dr. Tom spent the next three years serving at Fort Bliss in sunny El Paso, Texas. Upon honorable completion of his Army commitment and after receiving multiple military awards and honors, Dr. Tom decided, along with his family, that it was time to return home to Southern California and join his father Dr. H. Curt Nelson, D.D.S. in the family practice that was established by his grandfather, making him the 3rd generation to practice dentistry at this location.
Dr. Tom would like to thank his patients for the wonderful experiences they bring to the office, and to invite you to come in and enjoy for yourself the pleasant, trusting, family atmosphere engendered here at Nelson Dental Group.
