In support of Dr. Nelson

I am writing this letter in response to the article “Local Dentist’s License in Jeopardy,” that appeared on the front page of the Jan. 8Homer Tribune. I was upset that an
article like this would be printed in the first place. This article was based purely on accusations and would have been more appropriate to have been printed in the opinion column, if at all. 

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Nelson since he bought Dr. Cordova’s practice. Our family has had multiple procedures, including dental implants, performed by Dr. Nelson and have never had any issues with any of the work that was done. Dr. Nelson has always been very professional, takes the time to explain things thoroughly, and usually gives multiple options before any procedure. He is a perfectionist when it comes to his work. One time he sent back a permanent crown to have it redone because it was imperfect, with no additional charge to me. 

My husband and I were both born here in the Homer Hospital and have seen a lot of changes in the community over the years. Homer did not always have access to the types of medical and dental procedures that are now available. I hope you will all remember that there are always going to be cases that do not turn out as expected, no matter who the doctor or dentist is.

Our family intends to be patients of Dr. Nelson for years to come and I hope you will continue to show your support as well.
