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, South Dakota. He obtained his undergraduate degree in human biology at the University of Montana in Missoula. Dr. Bury completed his dental school degree at the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry in Lincoln, where he graduated at the top of his class with high honors (Go Huskers!). Following dental school, Dr. Bury practiced in Winner, South Dakota, but jumped at the chance to come back home to the Black Hills and partner with Dr. Nelson. Dr. Bury has always had a deep appreciation for dentistry because he is able to utilize a mixture of science and art in order to help patients achieve beautiful and healthy smiles. He is dedicated to his patients and makes it a priority to provide high-quality dentistry in a comfortable atmosphere. Dr. Bury has a strong commitment to his profession and participates regularly in continuing education courses in all areas of dentistry in order to stay up-to-date on new dental techniques and materials. Dr. Bury is a member of several professional organizations:

Dr. Bury is married to his wife Brittany and together they have a daughter named Blaire. When not at the office, Dr. Bury enjoys going on adventures with his family, reading, playing racquetball and hiking.

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.
