Wow!! I'm extremely terrified of going to the dentist and this place is simply amazing! They were very kind and took the time to make sure was comfortable. On a scale of 1 to 100 I'd rate them above a micheal Jordan. Go here! Bring your dog even!! Just do it, just... do it!...... Nike.

I walked into Bloomington Dental to inquire about being a new patient, since I had just moved here. I felt so welcomed, and got an immediate cleaning appointment due to a cancellation. The hygienist was so gentle and nice. The dentist came in and spent time talking to me and answering all my questions. I have a couple of procedures planned and won't be going anywhere else. I would highly recommend Bloomington Dental.

Other than my own idiocy for not coming in regularly which caused more work to be done, visit very positive. Doctor is personal and down to earth, office is clean and organized, staff is very helpful and friendly! I do have one complaint: Though I have kids close to or older than all the assistants, and hygienist in the office, I have to say they are all VERY cute! So my complaint is, you feel kinda vulnerable sitting there with these pretty ladies having to stick their hands in your mouth (if not obvious this is actually a compliment). In all honesty, probably the best Dentist Office I've been to. Professional but still enjoyable.

My whole family has gone to Dr. Nielson and we absolutely love him and his staff. He is professional yet talks to you like you're a friend. One of my favorite girls there is Kristy. She is fun and amazing and is dedicated to making your teeth and smile awesome. It's hard to find good dentists that have awesome staff as well but Bloomington Dental nailed it.

I suddenly had a crown come off at 5:00 p.m. while I was visiting St. George. I immediately called my great dentist at home (22 hours away in the midwest) who told me to try and find a walk in dental clinic. I was close to hysterics as I had a very important meeting the next morning at 11:00. The hotel front desk employee routed me to her dentist who was unable to see me and since I had already called 2 others I was near tears. Her office recommended Bloomington Dental and when I called Morgan answered and reassured me he would get me in asap. He was so professional and kind and asked if I could make it at 9 am. I was met with an extremely kind and professional assissant and Dr. Nelson was the same. My anxiety was gone, pain was gone, and my crown was better than ever!!! Thank you all so much. You completely changed my 15 hours from panic to pure joy. Thank you! If I lived closer I can say with certainty you would have a new patient!!!!!

It’s easy to rate Dr. Nielson and Bloomington Dental with 5 stars. I have exams every 6 months to keep my teeth clean and healthy and am always impressed with the professionalism, friendliness, and timeliness of treatment. I have no Dental Insurance and appreciate the different options to pay for extra-costly procedures. Thanks to Brooklyn, my hygienist this last visit.

Came in with daughter who was experiencing pain in her mouth. The staff was super inviting and happy. The overall atmosphere was welcoming. Dr. Nelson was very thorough and explained areas that need attention very competently. As a mom, I feel very encouraged considering that daughyer needs a bunch of work done and could have easily felt discouraged but Dr. Nelson and Christy didn't promote discouragement or "dome and gloom". What the presented was a logical plan to get things in order and a SHINY, bright future for daughter's mouth. Tgank you to all involved! 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁!

Excellent, caring, knowledgeable (and very friendly) staff! DDS Chris will sit down with you and take the time to address any questions you may have. He called me by phone the next day to ask how my recovery from an extraction/implant was going. Impressive! (I'd give them 6 stars if it was allowed...)

I have been a patient of Dr. Nielson for many years. He is very professional, and very caring . When I went through breast cancer he gave me a special paste to use on my teeth to protect them from the acid, from the chemotherapy and prevent tooth decay. He always asks about my family, and I have recommended many people both professionally and personally. His office staff is very friendly, and helpful. I owe the excellent health of my mouth to him. cindy six

I’ve visited several other dental offices in the area before finding Bloomington Dental, and I can say with confidence that the people who make up Bloomington Dental are among the best. They really care about the patients and how they feel. They also care to see how you’re doing outside the office. Overall a great environment, and definitely noteworthy.

I chose Bloomington Dental at random because I was new to the area, needed a crown, and thought I’d check out multiple places- but there was no need. The staff is friendly, everyone is so professional, and honestly this is the first time I’ve ever had a crown without pain after. Seriously they are amazing and I’m glad I chose them. I plan on going to them for as long as I live in St. George.

Our family has had the best experience with Bloomington Dental! I’m caregiver for two 80 yr old parents with Alzheimer’s and the care for them is wonderful, sweet and gentle. The same goes for our grandchildren, 8 and 4. My husband, adult children and I have always had a pleasant dentist visit as well. I can’t say enough about the level of friendly, efficient service they provide.. especially when I have overextended my schedule and need to leave the elders and come back to get them when they are finished. Seeing a dentist isn’t usually the most pleasant thing, but this office makes the whole process easy.

Everyone was super nice. I had a tooth pulled and didn't even feel the numbing shot. I dont have insurance and they worked with me on the cost. I need alot of work in the future, and they are working with me on the price and payments. Very nice, very professional, amazing work & experience. The dentist is skilled and certified in several things so it's a one stop for everything from dentistry, implants, extractions, bridges, flippers, root canals, crowns, everything! Makes it so much easier! Very happy!

I am a couple years new to the area and hadn’t been established with a dentist yet and my mom referred me to Bloomington Dental, I was hesitant because I needed some invasive procedures done and have been putting it off. I finally made an appointment and everything was great from calling in to the actual oral procedures. The staff is so friendly and I felt right at home when I got there. Dr Nielson is awesome, very good bedside manner and is so knowledgeable, I had so many questions and he made sure I was comfortable and knew exactly what he was doing and the best part is their topical numbing was amazing and I felt zero pain during the procedures. I would highly recommend Bloomington Dental to anyone. Great experience and I will be back for sure!! Thank you Bloomington Dental for making my experience great!

Without a doubt one of the best Dentist I have been too in my 70 some years. I had been told prior to finding Dr. Neilson that I needed seven crowns and that the filling in my wisdom tooth had caused the tooth to crack and that it needed to be extracted. This turned out to be not true and after an exam by Dr. Neilson I only needed 2 crowns and two fillings. I was also told that my implant from years ago was loose at the crown and that the crown needed to be replaced. Dr. Neilson showed me the xray where you could see the real problem is that the entire crown was loose in my jawbone. When it comes to having Dental work done I am a real "baby" especially when the needles numb me up. But the young lady who did this was very patient with me and the numbing compound she used prior to the needles really helped. I would highly recommend Bloomington Dental to anyone looking for an Excellent and Caring Dentist and his Crew are the best
