Meet Tyler Nelson, DDS
Dr. Tyler Nelson is a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon who is thrilled to be practicing in and serving the wonderful community of North County San Diego.
Dr. Nelson received his Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish from BYU. He had planned to teach Spanish, but life had different plans. One of the requirements of a career exploration class he took was to investigate different professionals in their offices. After exploring a career in oral surgery, Dr. Nelson set his mind on a new career path and he is so glad he stuck with it.
During dental school at University of the Pacific, San Francisco, Dr. Nelson served as class president each year, and as Student Body President during his senior year. He graduated with high honors, and was accepted into the 4-year oral and maxillofacial surgery program at Highland Hospital in Oakland, CA.
During residency, Dr. Nelson was trained in IV sedation, dental implants, removal of difficult teeth, facial trauma and orthognathic (jaw repositioning) surgery. He also presented research on jaw tumors and imaging modalities for diagnosis of mandibular fractures. He is a board certified diplomate of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
Dr. Tyler Nelson is happily married to Natalie, his college sweetheart. Together, they are proud parents of 6 wonderful, energetic children. Dr. Nelson enjoys time with his family at the beach, and can be found playing pickleball, running, biking, and snowboarding.
