Your Dentist in Springfield, MO
Providing Families with Personalized Dental Care
When it comes to providing patients with the dental care they need, we don’t rush around. Our day is specially planned out with you in mind. Unlike other dentists, Dr. Olson dedicates extra time with each patient to provide personal care and discuss questions or concerns they may have. We are dedicated to developing a personal relationship with you and making you feel like a part of our family so your visit is as comfortable and relaxing as possible. We welcome patients of all ages, and are happy to offer services to meet the needs of patients at all ages and stages of life.
Dr. Olson and his staff are also dedicated to providing state-of-the-art dental care, so you can rest assured the treatment you receive is the most advanced. Our office is equipped with the latest dental technologies and materials, and we make a point of regularly attending continuing education classes so we can offer dentistry’s newest techniques. No matter what service you require—general, restorative or cosmetic dentistry—your care and safety are our #1 concern.
Dr. Olson is skilled at providing dental care for all ages. So whether you are bringing your child to our office for a dental cleaning and exam or you need to have a cavity repaired with a tooth-colored filling, you are certain to receive the care that you need.
Although a filling is probably the restorative procedure that Dr. Olson performs most often, it is certainly not the only one. For example, when a tooth is broken or deeply cracked, a dental crown may be the perfect solution. This restoration fits snuggly over your prepared tooth to restore the natural appearance of the tooth as well its functionality. In addition to repairing a damaged tooth, a dental crown is also the finishing touch to a dental implant.
To enhance the appearance of your smile, there is cosmetic dentistry. We know that the way your smile looks can impact the way you feel. So, to boost your confidence and self-esteem, we offer a variety of cosmetic enhancements, including:
ClearCorrect uses clear plastic aligners to move teeth into proper alignment. Each set of aligners—one for the teeth along your top arch and one for the bottom—are worn for about two weeks. Then, simply move on to the next pair and watch your smile become straighter step-by-step.
Although often considered a cosmetic improvement, braces also do much to improve the health of your smile. Simply put, straight teeth are easier to keep clean, and clean teeth go a long way toward ensuring good oral health.
We understand that some of the procedures in our office can be rather unsettling for patients. With sedation dentistry, however, there’s absolutely no reason for anyone to feel anxious or afraid. We use oral conscious sedation, which is a simple pill that you take about one hour before your appointment to relax you. While Dr. Olson works, your vital signs are carefully monitored for your health and safety. At the end of your appointment, a friend or family member must be present to drive you home.
