Michael G. Neilson, DMD, LLC
Dr. Neilson served in the United States Air Force for 10 years (2005-2015). During this time he had the privilege of knowing and working with Drs. Brendan Farrell and Phillip Harvey. These Relationships and glowing reports of Kansas convinced Dr. Neilson to join Oral Surgery Kansas.
Dr. Neilson was born and raised in a small farming community in California’s San Joaquin Valley. He is the third of four children and has fond memories of growing up in a small town. Dr. Neilson completed a two-year religious Mission to Rome, Italy at the age of 19. He then went on to complete his undergraduate degree (BA) at Portland State University. During this time, he married his sweetheart Rebecca, from Portland, Oregon.
In 2001, Dr. Neilson was accepted into dental school at Oregon Health Sciences University. He subsequently graduated in 2005 with honors. Immediately after graduation, Dr. Neilson completed a one year Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD). It was during this time that his decision to become an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon was solidified. In 2007, Dr. Neilson began his oral surgery training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, TX and graduated at the top of his class.
After graduation, Dr. Neilson was reassigned to Travis Air Force Base in California. Travis Air Force Base is also home to an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training program as well as an AEGD residency. Dr. Neilson was tasked with the supervision and education of future dentists and surgeons.
Dr. Neilson is excited to be a part of Oral Surgery Kansas and to share the beauty and adventure of Kansas with his wife and five children.
