Meet Our Team

Dr. Mike Nehl has been practicing dentistry in Belle Fourche, SD since 1984. In 2007, his son, Dr. Matt Nehl joined him in the family practice after completing his dental degree from the University of Nebraska, School of Dentistry, Lincoln, NE. The highly trained Nehl Dental team of certified dental hygienists, assistants and office staff work together to help patients feel comfortable and to ensure all questions about care, insurance and services are answered.

In addition to the latest in technology and Dr. Matt’s advanced certification in implants, the father and son team continue to practice with the same traditional manners, values, and personal attention patients have come to recognize as hallmarks of Nehl Dental.

“Many of our patients and their families have been coming here since 1984, and they continue to expect both quality and affordable dental care from a trusting dentist.  Individual attention and personal care for every patient means that we always take the time to really listen and explain procedures. This allows us to provide the highest standard of care to all of our patients,” says Dr. Mike Nehl.

Dr. Mike and Dr. Matt and everyone with the Nehl Dental Team invite you and your family to experience the highest in quality dental care using the latest in technology in a comfortable, relaxed environment.
