Dr. James Nelson completed his Bachelor of Science degree in biology at Black Hills State University before attending dental school at the University of Minnesota, graduating in 1986. He practiced in a group dental practice for 10 years before deciding to branch out and open his own office. He continues his dental education regularly in order to stay at the forefront of the dental field, and enjoys helping his patients with large cosmetic cases and full mouth reconstruction. He has practiced in the Rapid City area for over 30 years.

Dr. Nelson is a member of several professional organizations, including:

As a dentist, he is committed to treating everyone in a happy, clean and modern environment. He is honest in his approach and treats each patient he meets as he would a member of his own family. Dr. Nelson built his practice on integrity and compassion for all of his patients, and he is proud that this philosophy has continued as his practice has grown over the years.

Dr. Nelson greatly enjoys working with Dr. Bury and his daughter, Dr. Mandy. In his spare time, he enjoys hunting, fishing, skiing and golfing. He also loves giving his time to great causes, such as the Donated Dental Program, the World’s Orphan Choir from Liberia and Peru, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and countless other things dear to his heart.

Dr. Matthew Bury grew up in Rapid City and actually shadowed Dr. Nelson when first preparing for dental school. Dr. Bury attended the School of Mines and finished obtaining a degree in human biology at the University of Montana in Missoula. He received his dental degree after four years at the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry in Lincoln, where he graduated with high honors (“Go Huskers!”). Dr. Bury practiced previously in Winner, South Dakota, but jumped at the opportunity to come back to the Black Hills and partner with Dr. Nelson. Dr. Bury has always been impressed by how much Dr. Nelson and his team care for their patients and looks forward to continuing that tradition.

Dr. Bury enjoys all aspects of dentistry and is heavily involved in continuing education, including a study group with several dentists and dental specialists of the Black Hills. Dr. Bury participates with the Donated Dental Service program and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Dr. Bury’s wife, Brittany, is a dental assistant and also works at the practice. Dr. Bury and Brittany have a 5-year-old daughter named Blaire. Dr. Bury enjoys fun activities like racquetball and frisbee.

Dr. Mandy Nelson grew up in Rapid City, South Dakota. She completed her undergraduate degree in biology and pre-health professional studies as well as her dental school degree at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. It has always been a dream of hers to become a dentist and work with her father, Dr. James Nelson, and she is excited to be back in Rapid City to practice with him. Dr. Mandy is committed to providing the best quality of care to her patients through the use of comfortable and advanced dental procedures. She uses compassion when it comes to her patients and strives to ease the dental phobia that some patients experience during dental visits. She wants everyone to feel proud of their smiles and enjoy a better experience at the dental office. Dr. Mandy’s goal is to show people that they do not need to be afraid of the dentist, and she has dedicated herself to achieving that result.

Dr. Mandy is a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and has completed additional training in order to offer BOTOX®, dermal fillers and PDO threads to her patients. Botulinum toxin is very effective in treating headaches and pain caused from TMJ disorders and teeth clenching. She took a special interest in this type of treatment after receiving it herself for migraines and bruxism. She is also a member of the American Dental Association, the South Dakota Dental Association and the Black Hills Dental Society.

Dr. Mandy enjoys spending time with her husband, Michael, who is a pilot in the Air Force, and their puppy, Vegas. Friends and family are everything to her. She also loves music, movies and fishing. Dr. Mandy looks forward to meeting all of you and is happy to welcome new patients to our practice.
