Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

We have been going to Jax Family Dentistry for a year now and we love, love, love everyone there!!! They make you feel like family. Kim meets you at the front desk with a warm and friendly greeting. She is always full of energy and smiles and remembers everything about your family from your last visit. Stephanie and Rene are the next tag team dental hygienist duo you meet. They are both so personable and funny. They keep you talking and laughing the whole time and you forget you are at the dentist. By now you feel like you just went out to lunch with friends and don’t realize your teeth have been cleaned. Enter Dr. Nixon, always smiling and happy and upbeat. She remembers everything and can’t wait to hear the latest update about your life. The whole staff takes extreme care for your teeth with the latest technology and advanced dental techniques and practices. My wife and I always have a great time and leave very happy we were there.

Unfortunately, It was a terrible experience at another local dentist office that led me to Jacksonville Family but I’m so glad it did. I found a home there. Everyone is genuinely caring, friendly, and honest. I never felt taken advantage of and received just the services needed, no hidden fees or over inflated treatment plan. I was always comfortable, if you are nervous at the dentist, don’t worry they care! Rene gave me fantastic cleaning and Dr. Nixon did a perfect filling, painlessly. If you are looking for a dentist or looking for a better dental experience give them a call. You won’t be sorry you did!

I was super nervous going in the office. From when i first walked it to the end of the visit , everyone ine in there made me feel so comfortable. I mean super , super nice and they did an awesome job on my teeth. I would recommend this office to anyone and everyone. I just have to say to them again THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU

HOLY SHIZXLE! Simply the best Dental Team in Jacksonville. Service is exceptional and the symbiotic camaraderie that the team has among themselves is immediately welcoming to the patients who choose them! This is not your fathers grumpy old school dentist – this is MODERN Dentistry at its best-with hospitality and patient care at the forefront of their business model.

Best experience I have had yet from a dental office in this area! The staff was great!! Very welcoming, friendly, and most importantly HONEST. Kim, Rene, and Dr. Nixon were so nice and informative. They make you feel right at home and provide excellent service. I will be coming here for all my future dental needs; highly recommend!!

Absolutely love Dr. Nixon and the rest of the staff at this office. They are all very welcoming, comforting and very knowledgeable. My family and I will be long term patients here. So glad to have found an office for myself and the rest of my family. I highly recommend this office if you are searching for a great experience in the dental office and a very caring staff.

Oh my goodness where do I begin. Doctor Nixon and her staff are so friendly and it’s such a pleasure to be there. I hate going to the dentist and Dr. Nixon and her staff make it enjoyable for me. I love them so much! I’ve been going to their office for about four years. They are so amazing!!

As good of an experience at a dentist you can possibly have! Office was so nice, staff were all professional and friendly; All of the proper safety precautions were being followed (taking patients temperatures, everyone wearing masks). Not to mention, this was the best cleaning I have ever had – it was so thorough and gentle. Thank you so much!

The staff and the dentist is amazing. They are completely professional and the environment is spotless, safe and sanitary. This is the best dentist I have ever been to. You will come in as a customer and leave as a friend of their family!! Fast, fun, friendly service with no wait!! They were able to address all my issues with lots of concern and make me feel comfortable. I got all my work done with no pain thanks to their expert dental professionals!!! Great job!!! This will be our family dentist forever.

Ron F. from Branford, CT (Source: Yelp)


I had a crown fall out and needed a new one. My regular dentist that I used in Florida could not get me an appointment for 2 weeks. I called Jacksonville Family Dentistry and not only did they fit me in to take care of this dental emergency, they also split my appointment up so I could take care of an emergency with my elderly dad and get my new crown the same day. Amazing service, quality of care. Dr. Nixon is now my new dentist my wife’s new dentist and my mom and dads new dentist. Thank you Ron F

Brooke P. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Nixon and her associates are extremely kind, helpful, and you can tell they like what they do. I felt very comfortable with everything, and the team is very helpful and informative. The office is very clean and updated, and the front desk ladies answered all of my questions. The wait to go back was minimal as well.

I’m new to Jacksonville and had tried out another dentist and was sorely disappointed. A friend recommended Dr.Nixon. I had the best cleaning of my life. Mandy was so careful and in tune to me and my comfort. Dr. Nixon was also in tune to her patients. From Kim at the desk helping with paperwork, to cleaning, to exam the total experience was perfect.

Dr. Nixon and Kim her assistant were awesome ! I broke a crown over the weekend and made and called for an appointment, they got me in on monday morning as a new patient with no waiting ! they were both very pleasant , even asked me what kind of music I wanted to listen to during my visit! Needless to say Dr. Nixon is now my new Dentist !

Am in Florida for the winter so when I had a problem a friend recommended Family Dentistry, called and they got me in and took care of me just like I had been going there for years. From the front office to DR. Nixon, all frendly, very profesional and explained what and why they were doing thus and so. Have made many friends here in Jacksonville and have already rememended them to one and I’m sure there will be others. Thanks Jacksonville Family Dentistry.

My first visit to a dentist in years. The staff is wonderful and pleasant. Very professional and cheerful. After hearing how much a bill could be it’s good to be around laughter. They made me very comfortable and the receptionist, I believe from New York she said, amazing!!!! She broke everything down with my insurance so that I understood what was going on. I picked the best Dentist office, hands down.

I’ve been fortunate to get scheduled quickly and got in the same day, that really helps. Every time I’ve gone there, the staff gives 100% in their efforts, they listen well and educate on the work they’ve done, it;’s obvious they care. Always done excellent work without gouging my wallet, that helps again;-) My wife and I both had emergency visits to Jacksonville Family Dentistry this week and were taken care of expediantly. I can’t say enough how greatful we are. Dr Nixon and her assistant Stephanie are so in synch, I swear they read minds without saying a word, fast and efficient. This is an upbeat staff that works excellent as a team, I always feel happy when I leave.

Exceptional quality and service. The name is truly descriptive of the practice. Doctor Nixon and her team treats every patient like family. She has expertly fabricated 2 crowns for me. After my check-up, Doctor Nixon noticed an abscess and recommended I see an Endodontist. The first Endodontist I saw told me it didn’t look bad and that it could wait until I felt pain. Doctor Nixon strongly recommended that I get a second opinion. I am so glad that I did. I avoided a very painful and expensive treatment thanks to her advice. I highly recommend Jacksonville Family Dentistry.

Dr. Nixon is the best dentist I’ve ever been to! She’s so nice and works very efficiently. She made me feel calm the whole time. She’s funny and personable. I was nervous because I hadn’t been to the dentist in a long time and I have always been self conscious of my smile. Dr. Nixon talked me through my options and we decided on veneers. I’m so happy with the temporaries that I can’t imagine how great the final result will be!! I will definitely be bringing my whole family.

So happy our family made the change to the Jacksonville Family Dentistry Office. Not only is it more convenient but the staff is very professional , energetic, and very attentive to your needs with good follow-up. We left Great Expressions because it lacked all the above. Thank you Kim , Melissa and team for making our transition a good one.

Chris S. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


By far the BEST dental practice in Jax.  Dr. Nixon is amazing and the entire staff is very friendly, helpful and professional.  Office hours are great and appointments are can be scheduled to fit your needs. The office is so pleasant and the atmosphere so relaxed that going to the dentist becomes an overwhelmingly positive experience.  Every single person in the office is willing to take the time to answer questions, help with insurance issues and even make general conversation.  I must say that the implants I had done came out FANTASTIC! Thank you all so much!!

Kristine M. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


Five Stars!! I highly recommend Jacksonville Family Dentistry on Southside Blvd and Baymeadows Rd. Dr Nixon, Mandy, the Office Manager and entire Staff are fantastic! Every step of the process I received stellar customer service–from the appointment, insurance, billing, exam, xrays, cleaning and after-care consultation. I felt confident, relaxed, welcome and look forward to going back! For excellent dental care and professional service go to Jacksonville Family Dentistry!

Judy N. from Newtown, PA (Source: Yelp)


Love,love love my new dentist!!! Office is clean, modern and runs soothly. I was taken back on time and the staff was really pleasant. I needed some work done but didn’t feel pressured like some other places I’ve been. I would definitely recommend Dr. Nixon. She’s professional and really gentle and real cares about caring for her patients. THANK YOU!

Dr . Nixon and her entire staff just ROCKS … I came from Blue Sky Dental were I has highly dissatisfied and disappointed. I was recommended to Dr. Nixon’ office ( Jacksonville Dentistry) by a co worker and I cannot say enough words of thanks to Dr Nixon and her staff . They are so professional they explained the treatment in detail to me and they give me options as a treatment to follow , they not just told me what they want to do . They are conscious that you are the patient and that you have the right to choose your course of treatment based on ” an informed decision ” They are not out there to just make money out of you . They are REAL PROFESSIONALS highly committed to quality standards. I had a crown done with Dr. Nixon ( in and out the same day ) no temporary crown…. and also I had a follow up deep cleaning. They are also reasonable in prices but the quality of work they do it is UNMATCHABLE! Thank you Jacksonville family dentistry Dr. Nixon and friendly staff!!! Edith Miller

So glad a friend of mine suggested this office. Very clean, the people there are so nice and they were very calming. I am one of those people who get very anxious with dentist. But Doctor Dixon and her staff were exceptional. They told me play by play what they needed to do, and made sure I was good throughout the whole experience. I do not have insurance at this time, but the prices were not bad at all. Will always go back there for anything I need done.

Linda G. from Coppell, TX (Source: Yelp)


This is my third dentist in 2 1/2 years. Fortunately, I found Jax Family Dentistry. Everyone in the office was friendly, professional and helpful. They understand people don’t like going to the dentist. They did not suggest a bunch of treatments that insurance doesn’t cover like the previous dentists I saw. They are not judgmental and hygienists do not shame you about your dental shortcomings. I drove from the beach to this dentist office and it was worth it!

Jess G. from Newtown, PA (Source: Yelp)


I love this office. Dr. Nixon makes me feel so comfortable and I absolutely hate the dentist. Everything is clean and the staff was very helpful. I would highly recommend this place. I’ve been to a lot of bad dentists in my lifetime and this one is a true Jacksonville gem. Definitely go here!

Danielle J. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


I was very impressed with this Dentistry. Now, I’m not someone who is afraid of the dentist however i had not been back in over a year because of a visit form a different local dentistry that left my mouth sore for weeks after a simple cleaning. I called a handful of Dental Offices trying to find out information about their whitening offers. Huge shoutout to KIM for being very professional over the phone and knowledgeable about my inquiries. This office is the only of 5 that gave me any of this information over the phone, one tried to make an appointment, two took my name to call back but never called back and one i left a message to not receive a callback. Mandi is a very professional and thorough hygienist. Dr Nixon was also very courteous and knowledgeable. Top notch team here!

Very friendly and professional staff. I felt very at ease when I made my appointment as well as when I was there. All my questions were answered immediately and completely. The rooms were aesthetically pleasing and clean. I just moved to Georgia and my sister-in-law recommenced them. I’m so happy I took her advice. I’ve found my forever dentist!

Joseph Burns (Source: Google)


Dr Nixon is very sweet and really knows about teeth. Her office staff is very welcoming and made my anxiety fly away on a little cloud. The hygienist, a guy named Rene, was awesome. Definitely the most through cleaning I have ever had and he really seemed to care about what he was doing. Glad I found my forever dentist!

I am delighted that my dental work was done at Jacksonville Family Dentistry. The entire experience went exceptionally well; my teeth look and feel great. You couldn’t ask for a more personable group of skillful professionals, working together. I highly recommend Jacksonville Family Dentistry.

Maggie Gattrell (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Nixon and her entire staff are very qualified. Your appointment waiting time is nil or minimal. The office atmosphere is welcoming. I actually don’t mind getting my teeth cleanings on a regular basis. That is amazing since I use to be terrified of going to the dentist. I have been a patient since Family Dentistry opened, since the former dentist, Dr. James Gaff, was my dentist. I knew Dr. Gaff would only selll his practice to a great dentist. I was not disappointed.

Tom Morris (Source: Facebook)


The best experience from any doctor I have ever seen. Dr. Nixon is a skilled and caring physician. She has earned my trust from her treatment of our dental health. Her entire staff reflects her commitment to the best care possible for her patients. Her hygienist Mandi is exceptional. She treated me yesterday and I was grateful for her skilled thorough cleaning of my neglected teeth. I am a bad man when it comes to following doctor’s advice. I love the entire office staff. If you want the best dental care in Jacksonville this is the place.

By far the BEST dental practice in Jax. Dr. Nixon is amazing and the entire staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. Office hours are great and appointments are can be scheduled to fit your needs. The office is so pleasant and the atmosphere so relaxed that going to the dentist becomes an overwhelmingly positive experience. Every single person in the office is willing to take the time to answer questions, help with insurance issues and even make general conversation. I must say that the implants I had done came out FANTASTIC! Thank you all so much!!

Dare I say I no longer dread going to the dentist? The entire staff is professional, knowledgeable, efficient and goes above and beyond for their patients. They really put me at ease during some recent procedures and a cleaning. If you need a dentist, I would highly recommend Dr. Nixon and her team!

This have to be the best dentistry I have ever been too. I recently moved from Atlanta, GA and I am very skeptical in regards to my teeth. I gave the family dentistry a shot and I was blown away by their level of customer service and how hospitable everyone was. From Kim setting up my appointment, to Katherine going ABOVE and BEYOND cleaning my teeth and making me feel comfortable and last but not lease doctor Nixon coming to ensure I was well taken care of. I absolutely enjoyed my first time there and know that I’ve found my HOME dentist and would gladly recommend anyone here! Thank you ladies!
