Meet Dr. Nix

My name is Dr. Ned L. Nix. I was born in San Jose and raised in Sunnyvale. I’m a Board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. I received my undergraduate degree in agricultural and managerial economics from the University of California at Davis and my Doctorate in Dental Surgery degree from the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in 1995. I completed my oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center, a Columbia University Hospital, in New York, NY in 2000. I also completed a general practice residency in dentistry at the same institution in 1996. I began my private practice in 2000.

I am a diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology. I belong to a number of professional organizations: American College of Dentists, American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, California Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and American Dental Society of Anesthesiology.

I have devoted my professional career to the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery practice with special interests in dental implants, office and hospital surgery, and service to the dental profession. To keep abreast of the latest developments in oral and maxillofacial surgery, I have always exceeded the continuing education requirements of California.

I have been involved in leadership and education since beginning my practice. I have served on numerous committees, boards and have served as the President of the California Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. I actively teach dental students and oral and maxillofacial surgery residents at the UOP School of Dentistry, and I hold the appointment of Clinical Associate Professor. I completed my Master of Arts in Dental Education at the University of the Pacific, Benerd School of Education in 2015.

My hobbies include golf and travel. I am married to Dr. Kelly A. Nix, a podiatrist in Los Gatos. We have one child: Ryan Matthew Nix.
