After multiple attempts by many different doctors to alleviate my pain, I was referred to Dr. Olson. He worked tirelessly to find a solution, refusing to give up on me as so many others had. Because of his dedication to staying current on best practices, Dr. Olson found the treatment that worked for me. My level of pain and the number of migraines has reduced by 80-90%. Dr. Olson is a gift to this profession. I am forever grateful to him and his amazing office staff.

Dr. Olsen's excellent knowledge of TMJD helped me very much with that problem. I'm confident this issue is now solved and I understand much more about it. Thank you.

I have been a patient of Dr. Olsen's for over 20 years and had always been self conscious of my crooked smile. After 9 months of using Invisalign to correct my teeth, I finally have the perfectly straight teeth I had always wanted. Thank you to Dr. Olsen and his amazing staff!
