Meet Dr. Nelson “Nick” Hersh

A Love for Healthy Smiles

It’s my goal to make a difference in the world. I believe in treating each of my patients as if they were a family member: with gentleness, professionalism, and compassion. I am respectful of each person’s unique needs and enjoy getting to know them as we transform their smile.

I love working with patients of all ages, helping them feel better about themselves and building their self-esteem. I know each person is special, and feel it is an honor to celebrate what makes them distinctive. — Dr. Nelson “Nick” Hersh
