Reviews

My family has been going to Elk Ridge Dental for many years and have been very happy there. The office manager, Michelle, is fantastic as is Michaela and all the other hygienists. They are flexible with scheduling and appointments are ALWAYS right on time. The office is so clean and they follow strict safety guidelines. I would highly recommend for the entire family!

I hadn’t been to the dentist in years. My wife and kids said they enjoyed their visit at Elk Ridge Dental and guilted me I to making an appointment for a cleaning. I’m not afraid of the dentist or violently anti-dentite or anything like that ... I just never prioritize seeing a professional if nothing hurts or bothers me. I did however feel guilty that it was seriously like 5 to 7 years since my last cleaning. My dentist experiences in the past have been less than stellar. Most try to sell me on braces, whitening products, and fancy dental equipment. I had one guy drill for a filling with no anesthesia. Pretty sure an F bomb slipped out but with all the pokers and prodders in my mouth it probably sounded like a drowning octopus ... “Fwupfish grglr grl “ or something to that effect. Anyways, enough about me ... I am clearly not the ideal dental patient. Let me tell you about my experience at Elk Ridge Dental. Leading up to my appointment I received several helpful emails and text messages to remind me about the visit and instructions to follow. Normally I find these things annoying but their messages were clear, helpful, and well timed. So far so good. On the day of my appointment I showed up and called the office to let them know I was here ready for my tooth chiseling. You see, with COVID-19 they don’t want to let in any rabid 7 years over due for their cleaning, germ infested strangers into the office without the proper precautions. I can appreciate this and was happy to wait outside until they were ready. When they were ready I entered the office and was greeted by three of the most angelic dental professionals I had ever seen. There was an aura about them. I couldn’t see faces due to the masks, but I am sure they descended to work on angels wings. Michelle was holding the door open for me and greeted me warmly. The office was spotless! They clearly take the cleanliness of the patient rooms seriously. The equipment looked brand new and there was a tv above my chair with my favorite celebrity chef on. Rachel Ray was making stew. I love stew. Actually I have no clue what she was making but I am craving stew and felt it added to my review. Michelle was fan-fricken-tastic! She was friendly and didn’t make me feel like a loser when I told her how delinquent I was about my dental practices. She also only asked me questions when I didn’t have a mouthful of tools. Don’t you hate when a hygienist asks complex questions when you have a mouth full of metal and spit!? Well Michelle didn’t do that much to my delight. I got xrays and a thorough cleaning. She quickly got to work, Jack-hammering 7 years worth of filth from my crusty pie hole. She didn’t dry-heave once during the whole operation! I did get the “importance of flossing” lecture as expected, but to my delight I had no cavities! Dr. Eric was super quick and professional after my cleaning. No complaints there. They got me scheduled for my next visit in 6 months and sent me home with a fancy toothbrush, toothpaste, and of course a pack of floss that will more likely be used as emergency fishing line as opposed to helping me with my gum line. Am I happy with my visit? Heck yes! Should you check out Elk Ridge Dental? Only if you want to be worked on by gentle angels who will leave your smile sparkling and your gums, well ... gummy!read more

I have had excellent experiences at Elk Ridge Dental. I am always seen very promptly (rarely even have to sit down in the waiting room). The staff are friendly and all of my cleanings have been thorough and pleasant (as far as dental visits go!) 🙂 The billing process is handled expediently and they file with insurance. If you're looking for a dentist, I recommend Elk Ridge Dental.

Elk Ridge is a positive, well designed and clean place. The staff are skilled, positive and client focused. In addition to his skill Dr. Fuehrer respects his clients.

I love the way Michaela cleans my teeth. I always book for when she can get me in. If she left the practice I would follow her. Recent change in dentist, has not effect the way this office runs. Been going here for years. Great staff, great service. Michelle is a wiz at getting you all your insurance benefits. With a recent job change I can get my teeth cleaned 3 times a year over 2. Makes me extremely happy.read more

I’d been going to Nielsen Dental for several years & was sad to hear that Dr. Nielsen was leaving... but Dr. Fuehrer made me feel very welcome. I highly recommend him & his staff. They are very knowledgeable, thorough & friendly. I had a dental emergency & they were able to get me in right away & have been following my progress with an Oral Surgeon. Michelle, in the front office, is always very helpful & offers encouragement & a smile.read more

First visit was great! I have been struggling to find a dentist that meets my needs and expectations since my previous dentist retired. Based on my first visit the Dentist and staff is exactly what I am looking for. Great office staff, a Dentist who cares about his patients and their needs, and the office is close to work. Process to be a new patient was easy, everything except for signatures were online and completed prior to my visit. I walked in, was greeted by name, signed the paperwork and they were ready for me. Scheduling was easy and they worked with my schedule. I was able to get x-rays, cleaning and a mouth guard impression all completed in my first visit. If you are looking for this type of experience, you need to check them out!read more

I've been to a few different dental offices since moving to the Omaha area. Maybe we have to go through that to find the right one! The staff at Elk Ridge Dental were very welcoming and Michelle was very helpful with explaining the insurance and payment expectations. I would definitely recommend this dental office if you're in the market or close to the area.

We've been patients of Dr. Nielsen for several years and have recommended him to others. Dr. Nielsen is friendly and professional and gives me confidence in dental decisions. I'm a real coward when it comes to dental visits however Dr. Nielsen and his staff are considerate, caring, and thorough. They put me at ease. The skills, technology, and equipment used is first rate and shows that Dr. Nielsen always continues to learn and grow in his dental practice. The staff is great! Appointments and insurance questions are completed quickly, confidentially, and with the patients in mind.read more

My family has been with Dr Nielsen for about 4 years now, starting with some serious extensive work. Dr Nielsen himself is so friendly, gentle and sensitive to our individual needs. He loved the fact that the work he did with my husband's front teeth made him feel so much more confident and willing to smile openly. He is fantastic with our youngest ones. He advises us in a way that does not demean us, and loves running into our kids in the community outside the office, always taking the time to ask them about school and activities. The staff are very professional and friendly. We love Michelle at the front, she explains financial options clearly and is very friendly with everyone, creating a great family atmosphere. Even with a "rainbow" family like ours, we have only ever felt welcomed and well cared for here. I very, very highly recommend them!read more

A few years ago I had a dental problem and my dentist was out of town. Dr Nielsen had gone to college with my sons so I decided to see if he was available.

Dr. Nielsen is so warm and friendly so you feel comfortable to have some dental work done. Dr. Nielsen will call my husband and I to check on us after a procedure done! Sorry, but don't know of any other Dr. that will do that. Thank you Dr. Nielsen and staff for an outstanding service.read more
