“Dr. Olson has worked tirelessly to help me, with great results. The pain from TMJ is almost nonexistent and the number of migraines I experience has decreased significantly. He not only explains what he is going to do, but why he is doing it...and that is the first time any dentist has had the courtesy to do so.” Kathleen W. Ann Arbor, MI

“Dr. Olsen ways highly recommend by a friend of mine who is a dentist from another state. I came to Dr. Olsen with a debilitating vertigo issue. His thoughtfulness in developing a treatment plan included consulting an outside healthcare specialist. Dr. Olsen was successful in providing me with a significant improvement in functionality and quality of life. I will continue treatment with Dr. Olsen in the future as necessary.” Christine N. Saline, MI

“I had the best experience when I visited Dr. Olsen office. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. My dental assistant Kristy was so friendly and professional. She took her time to explain what she was going to do and made sure I was good before going forward. I was in and out and thought they did a great job. I would definitely recommend this to all my friends and I actually did to my sister who also went. Great service and great people. Good Job everyone!!” Valerie S. Ann Arbor, MI

Invisalign® Clear Braces

Despite popular belief, metal braces aren’t necessarily the only way to achieve straighter, more attractive teeth. Dr. Olsen offers an image-friendly alternative in Invisalign, which uses a series of clear, removable aligners that are barely noticeable when worn. Better yet, our team utilizes iTero technology in order to create fast, no-contact 3D scans of your teeth and bite for Invisalign treatment, resulting in more effective and comfortable aligners and a more pleasant overall treatment experience.

Root Canals & Dental Emergencies

Get Out of Pain. Today!

Dental emergencies can arise at any time, and often without warning too. When you or a loved one is struggling with this type of serious situation, the last thing you want to hear from your chosen dentist is that they can’t make time in their schedule for another few days. Thankfully, our team takes a different approach. Dr. Olsen makes every effort to see emergency patients on the same day as their initial call, and after-hours treatment can be arranged as well if you truly need immediate attention.
