Olson Dental

(54) A Professional & Caring Practice For All Your Dental Needs
My whole family and I have been going to Olson dental for many many years. The entire staff is always friendly and welcoming. Both Dr. Olson and Dr. Courtin are fantastic. They make all dental procedures as comfortable as they can and actually care how you are doing during the whole process. The dental hygienist’s are professional and thorough. They make each visit easy as well. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

Lori is the best at cleaning my teeth. I visit three times a year, so I pay for one visit. That’s how much I like her. She is friendly and considerate and has great recommendations. Dr. Olson is always understanding and has taken great care of my teeth.

So happy I found Olson Dental! Dr. Courtin and the whole team have been fantastic! I had a bad experience at the previous dental office I was at and when I came to Olson Dental and explained how anxious I was to be back at the dentist I felt very listened to. Everyone has been super great at communication and being extra gentle and patient. I also love all the reminders I get from the reception as I have a busy life and often forget about appointments.

My family has been with Olson Dental for multiple decades. The office is well-run and highly competent. I recently experienced an unanticipated dental condition and Dr. Olson and Dr. Courtin both rearranged their schedules to see me immediately and resolve the discomfort. Their office is clean and the staff is courteous and responsive. My life-long Dental Hygienist/Friend, Lori Taylor, is wonderful! Can’t give this office enough stars.

Dr Olson and his entire office are fantastic. He's been my dentist since 1995 and has always been spot on with his diagnosis of my dental needs and takes excellent care of my teeth. His front office staff are extremely friendly and helpful, particularly when it comes to figuring out what's covered by insurance for those outside of the norm expenses and his hygienists are the best. I have kind of sensitive gums and they always apply a topical before they start cleaning, which goes a long way for my comfort. A+++ in my book.

Regardless of where I've lived in the Bay Area, I have been going to Dr. Olson for 20 years. They treat you like family - always friendly and caring. Their top priority is clearly to make you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible - very gentle. I have never found this kind of treatment elsewhere!
more

Frank L.

Everyone at Dr. Olson's office is always nice, kind and helpful. Their top priority is always their patients and making sure that they are comfortable. The atmosphere is always relaxed, inviting and welcoming. If you need any procedures done that might make you nervous and anxious, Dr. Olson and his staff will always sooth those nerves and make those procedures as painless and comfortable as possible. I recommend Dr. Olson and his staff 100%!!

The place is cheery, pleasant and relaxing. Everyone is so friendly and seem to love working at the office. Doc Olson has the best disposition. Been going to him for over 15 years.

Brian G.

I have been going to Dr. Olson since about 1976. I'm one of his long time patients. I have lived all over the Bay Area and will not go to anyone else. Lori has been "my" hygienist for years and I appreciate the professional care both have given me. I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Olson and his staff. I've had the full range of procedures---cleaning, fillings, bridges, root canals, and even an emergency appointment or two. Absolutely recommend Dr. Olson--cannot say enough good things about him. My only complaint--I keep asking him to move closer to where I live, but he hasn't done it yet! :)

I've been seeing Dr. Olson for 30 years.  He's extracted my wisdom teeth and filled fillings.  He has a very gentle mannerism and asks how you are doing frequently.  I've never had a negative experience.  And now, my children see Dr. Olson as well.  He is very easy to consult with; I liked the plan he suggested for my 10 year old - retainer first to help correct the overbite and then braces once she is older and her baby teeth all fall out.  They have easy payment plans too. I would highly recommend Dr. Olson for your family's dental needs.

Dr Olson, Allana, and team are AWESOME!!!! I am on a business trip to San Mateo and had a crown come off. The team here squeezed me in at the last minute, took care of my crown and were some of the most friendly people I have ever met. The Doctor uses words like please and thank you, the staff were genuinely caring for my situation and they made me feel like I was the most important person at that minute. KUDOS!!! I now have a new dentist, just 2k miles from home.

My family refers to Dr. Bob as painless Bob.  He always works at making you comfortable and help you with your dental health.  I have been going to Olson Dental for many years and can't imagine a better general dentist!.

M B.

I had a very bad experience when i was a teenager. I still carried that experience with me to this day and im in my late 20s. I knew i needed work done to my teeth but i was so very scared. A friend booked a cleaning appointment for me and i went in, i got to meet Dr. Olson and he examined my teeth and said i really need work done asap!! Its an understatement when i say he is the best and his staff are the BEST too!! Not only did he care but him and his staff made sure i was comfortable. Dr. Olson and his staff are the BEST!!!! Do not check any other dentist, this is the real deal..

Vaiola K.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Olson for over 20 years. We have been willing to do the trek from SF all these years because we've never found anyone else (including the wonderful staff) with such a gentle /painless manor, practical and pro-active approach to dentistry (not insisting on expensive unnecessary procedures, etc.), genuinely caring, friendly and clearly foremostly concerned with making their patients feel like family.
more

Deborah Q.

Absolutely the best dentist out there. I wish I had found him sooner because I have been to a few other dentist that were just in it for the $, Dr Olsen is super friendly and really seems to care.

Jesse M.

I was referred to Dr. Olson by a co-worker and it was the best referral I've ever had. After years of having jaw and teeth alignment issues, Dr. Olson came up with an orthodontic plan to resolve the issue on my first visit! He has been phenomenal and all the hygienists and office ladies are friendly and wonderful. If you are looking for a dentist/orthodontist, come here.

Lisa J.

Dr. Olson has been my dentist for 31 years. I was referred by someone who lived in San Mateo and needed a dentist and she said two people who didnt know each other both gave her his name. Dr Olson is a very caring person and always asks how you are doing while he is working on you. My whole family also thinks he is a great dentist. His whole staff is great.

I've been going to Dr. Olsen for almost 20yrs for all of my dental and orthodox needs. He and his staff are top notch. I would highly recommend their services.

Dr. Olson has been our family dentist for many years. I wouldn't go anywhere else.Like most people, I am not so thrilled about someone poking around in my mouth andcausing pain. Dr. Olson is extremely concerned about keeping you comfortable and will ask throughout the procedure if there is any problem. He is also interested in you as a personand will try to get to know how you're doing, not in a nosy way, but just out of concern and interest. He is also very polite with his staff and they all have smiles on their faces which I takeas a good sign. I also trust him not to do anything crazy or something that is not needed. He isalso understanding about payment plans and insurance delays.

Carol E.

Sorry I haven't reviewed him sooner. Dr Olson has been my dentist since the late 90s I think. I have rarely met a more polite and caring person, and in the medical profession this is rarer yet!  When he's working on you he's always checking to make sure you're doing OK. He is not pushy and respects your choices.  I have always had good hygenists here too.

Andrea H.

Best dentist ever!He's very personable, thorough and thoughtful. He sincerely cares about his patients. Very nice downtown location, quaint office and professional staff. You cannot even feel that he is administering a shot. This is truly his passion and it really shows!

Paolo F.

My dentist was on vacation and the office referred Dr. Olsen to me.  I had to have a root canal. EVERYONE was kind and gentle.  Dr Olsen did a great job and the assistant was thoughtful.  If I didn't love my dentist, Dr. Mololly so much I'd make the switch.Thank you for your great care.
more

Fran N.

I have been a patient with Dr. Olsen since he opened the practice. He is the best dentist ever! He is excellent at giving shots(and I hate shots). He is very gentle and patient. I am very impressed also with the charity work he and his office staff does all over the world. His practice has gone to third world countries and offers dentistry to those who have never received any dental care...amazing!If you are looking for a truly caring and kind dentist with a great office staff, this is the place.I have also recently used the new dentist to the office Dr. knueppel. He is almost a clone of Dr. Olsen to the extent that he is also great at shots, and extremely kind and compassionate! I would highly recommend either dentist!

I love this place the staff is really friendly,and the team is great. Very loving, caring, and supportive environment, and yes I'm talking about a dental office. Dr. Olson is a great dentist.

Went in for my regular teeth cleaning and my crown came off during the process.  I had likely bitten something that had made it lose so I was fortunate that I was in the dentist office when it cam completely off. I figured I would live with a gap in my teeth for a while until they could schedule the reattachement of the crown.  Boy was I pleasantly surprised when they moved me into another room after my teeth cleaning and reinstalled my crown.  I left the office with my crown secured and only with about 20 minutes behind in my daily schedule.  I believe that this level of service is only possible because this office has been around for a long time ( I'm a client since 1985) so they have no learning curve from growing pains like younger offices and they have long-term employees that know how to keep you happy.

Dr. Olson is the best at giving injections, his technique provides a painless injection.  He goes very slowly and takes him time to be sure you are numb.  I have also had orthodontic treatment with the Damon system and I can't believe how quickly my teeth moved.  I am almost done and it has been less than 18 months.

Bill T.

I have been through a few dentists and my search has stopped at Robert Olson. Dr. Olson has the BEST most professional and friendly demeanor while he works on my teeth. He walks me through every step of my appointment and consistently asks me how I am doing. I recently had a chip in my front tooth filled, and my tooth actually looks better now than it ever did!His staff is incredibly helpful and always friendly. This is the best dental office around, trust me and try them!
