Matthew Nelson, DDS
FAMILY & COSMETIC DENTISTRY
Dr. Nelson is a Washingtonian through and through; he grew up in Silverdale and attended Central Kitsap high school before attending Washington State University Honors College (go Cougs!!) majoring in neurobiology and completing his honors thesis on human stress and the HPA axis. Dr. Nelson went on to graduate Cum Laude from WSU and moved all the way across the country to the wonderful state of New York to complete his DDS at Touro College of Dental Medicine. During his time in New York, he frequently attended Broadway plays and ate as much NY pizza as he could.
He strongly believes in listening to his patients, making sure their questions are always answered and their concerns are heeded. Dr. Nelson believes that dentistry is as much about teaching patients the best ways to maintain oral hygiene as it is about performing routine procedures. In this way Dr. Nelson views much of what he does as preventative dentistry, and his patients are extremely thankful as a result!
Dr. Nelson lives in Puyallup with his wonderful girlfriend and two cats. One Tabby cat named Maeby and one Maine cat named Oga. When he’s not in the office, you could find him at the local Starbucks drinking 1 too many nitro cold brews, or at the local gym furthering his physical fitness.
