After spending a year as an associated dentist in Traverse City, MI, Dr. Olsen opened his private practice in Ann Arbor with just one operatory and one employee. Thanks to the support and loyalty of his patients, the practice has grown into a beautiful state-of-the-art, high-tech facility capable of delivering the highest quality dentistry available.

Dr. Olsen's team has grown a bit, but without sacrificing the personal connections they enjoy with their patients. A passion for learning has led Dr. Olsen to regularly pursue advanced training and education in all facets of dentistry. Because of his interest, he regularly attends local and national dental meetings, achieving an average of over 100 hours per year of continuing education. He has taken his knowledge and skills as a clinician to the next level by attending the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.
