What People Say About Dr. A Lauren Hood-Olson, DMD

Dr. Lauren is absolutely amazing! My teeth had shifted after not wearing my previous retainer, so I wanted to straighten them back out. I chose to do Invisalign, and Dr. Lauren made my teeth look better than before! I was highly impressed by her credentials, and her amazing chair side manner. Not only did she graduate top of her class in dental school (which was comforting to me), she was also extremely kind and caring. She was always more than willing to answer any and all questions that I had.

Unfortunately we did not have a great experience here. Dr Olson attempted to put a spacer in for my daughter, it was too big and came out the same evening. She was also told that it wouldn’t hurt. My daughter was in tears and was bleeding so obviously it caused some pain. In addition to that I called the office and spoke to Debbie who was incredibly rude to me.

"I really liked all of the information, it helped in making the decision to choose your practice...Plus my daughter was enamored by Dr. Olson, she even talked about being a doctor. My daughter picked your office after she met Dr. Olson and read her bio."

My daughter is a very happy and satisfied patient of Dr. Olsen. Her teeth looks wonderful and the treatment plan is on schedule. She gave us a concrete plan on treatment and payments as well. Dr. Olsen is very sweet and very good at her job.

I love this orthodontist! From the decor to the staff and beyond, everything is warm, clean, and inviting. From day one, I've been treated as part of the Olson ortho family. I'm always greeted by name and everyone's quick to answer my questions! I've been going here for over a year now and service level has remained high. You won't be disappointed to come here for your orthodontic needs!

Dr Olson and staff are an orthodontic office that goes above and beyond for their patients and the offices that refer patients to them! I'm proud to be able to recommend them to anyone that asks me for a recommendation! I just finished treatment myself and my 13 year old son is a current patient.
