Meet Dr. Daniel D. Nelson
Although his service in the military and his church has taken him and his family around the world, Dr. Daniel Nelson feels most at home in the Mountain West. Born in Denver and raised in the Salt Lake Valley, "Dr. Dan" has his roots deep in the Rockies.
He and his wife Linsey met and married while attending Utah Valley University, and are alumni of both UVU and the University of Utah. Following graduation from the U of U, Dr. Nelson earned his Doctorate of Medicine in Dentistry as part of the inaugural class from the Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine in 2012, and then completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency with the United States Air Force in Omaha Nebraska.
Dr. Nelson has been happy in service whether it be for his country, his family, his community, or for his church. He has been blessed to have served a two year mission in the state of Iowa prior to attending college and is proud of his military career while serving overseas as an officer in the Air Force. Dr. Nelson believes strongly in the core values taught by the USAF of "Integrity First", "Service Before Self", and "Excellence In All We Do". He loves his family and his career, and has a true passion for both.
On any given weekend you are just as likely to find him in the mountains camping and riding his motorcycle, at the hardware store working on his next "project", skiing Baldy, or at the theater catching a movie. He is a kid at heart, loves to have fun, and has a zest for life.
He, Linsey, and their three children are delighted to make their home in the Wood River Valley and be a part of the Wood River Dental team.
