Dr. John A. Nelson predicted his future when he was 10-years-old. It came in the form of a dream. “When I went with my sister one day to her dentist appointment, the dentist allowed me to stay around and explore . . . ever since then I have had an interest for it.”
Now 33 years of age, Dr. Nelson has seen his childhood dream come to fruition, with the opening of his own dental practice, Midtown Dental. His office is located on Biscayne Boulevard in Miami in one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in South Florida.
A graduate from Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Nelson earned his degree in Chemistry from the University of South Florida and then attended Howard University's College of Dentistry.
In 2008 after passing his Florida Board exam, he did a stint working for someone in their dental facility. Ultimately he decided to branch out on his own.
“In 2012 I began scouting out different neighborhoods in Miami to launch my own business,” Nelson said.
He settled on Midtown Dental, a beautiful facility located in a state of the art building, which also houses an outpatient center of Miami Children's Hospital. Nelson's staff occupies a large suite on the third floor that includes the most up to date and modern dental equipment and facilities. "Our staff is committed to being an integral part of this growing community and so we offer most dental insurances," Nelson said. "Good dental health is extremely important, so we encourage people no matter how young or old to schedule a dental appointment," he added.
Among the services Midtown Dental offers is, general dentistry as well as cosmetic and restorative. "We're very much about patient comfort and the gentle touch, Dr. Nelson said. "One of my patients calls me, "the friendly, neighborhood dentist." I guess I'll claim it," he smiled.
