Dr. James Nelson

Dr. Nelson was born and raised in Baton Rouge, LA.

He co-authored a paper during his time in dental school on the effects of the protein amelogenin on the remineralization of tooth enamel. Dr. Nelson enjoys providing each of his patients with a lifetime strategy for their dental health; this involves focusing on the underlying causes of dental problems and what can be done to prevent them. He also has interests in dental implants and orthodontics.

He believes in the value of continuing education and staying current with the latest advances in dental technology. Dr. Nelson takes great pride in serving others and is involved in several philanthropies, including the Special Smiles program at the Special Olympics and Habitat for Humanity.
