Great Basin Dental is a great office. The staff and doctors are always happy to help and very understanding. They have the best dental hygienists. I would not go to any other dentists in Elko.

I am terrified of the dentist, everytime I go in everyone is so sweet welcoming and caring. I always leave with the thought of, I got so worked up for nothing. I will always recommend this office. Have been going here over 10 years.

My 10 yo son had a baby tooth crack that would not come out. Dr. Swint was gentle, kind and personable. He made it painless and quick but also made sure my son feel comfortable. Great office!

Melissa has been cleaning mine and my husband's teeth for years and she always does an excellent job! On occasion, when I've had to see someone else, I've had good experiences as well. This was my first time seeing Dr. Swint and he was kind, and gentle on my mouth. The front desk personnel is helpful and friendly, and the office is clean. I highly recommend this office for your dental needs.

I had such a great experience, I’m usually very nervous going to the dentist but the staff was so welcoming and made me feel so comfortable. I was in and out very quickly and very impressed with the work done! I would recommend them to anyone in Elko or the surrounding areas. I’m from Ely but I plan on coming back for other dental work in the future. So glad I chose this office!

In my three visits to Great Basin Dental, I’ve received excellent treatment and service. I was particularly impressed during my last visit with the competence of the team and with the patient coaching by the dentist toward his hygienist assistant during the procedure. Clear emphasis on developing the people on the team and delivering a good experience to patients. I would highly recommend Great Basin Dental.

Best dental cleaning I've ever had! Amazing, friendly staff. Will definitely keep my dental needs here. 🙂

Lucien Hagan

I have literally been to so many dental offices in Colorado, Texas, Arizona, and Nevada that I am more than qualified to say Dr. Neilson is the best dentist I've ever seen. I'm old as dirt now so my visits were for dentures. He is amazing and the staff is the friendliest ever! There was not one issue with my billing, insurance, or getting questions answered on anything. In fact they addressed everything before I knew to ask which is a far cry from all the other dental offices I had the misfortune to be a patient at. I love this office and so does my husband Lucien. Any dental phobias will melt away, and you will enjoy the friendly, fun atmosphere.

I have had many bad experiences with dentists. After moving to Elko I wanted to make sure that didn’t happen again. And Dr Neilson is the right guy. He is wonderful. I had a root canal and crown. During the process my mother died. They worked with me on scheduling. They are always helpful. I would recommend this office to anyone I meet.
