Meet Our Doctors

Boise Dentist

Ryan L. Olson, DDS


Dr. Ryan Olson received his doctorate of dental surgery in 2008 from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond Virginia. He did his undergraduate studies at BYU-Idaho and Idaho State University. After graduating from dental school, Dr. Olson completed a 1 year residency in general dentistry at Ft. Jackson South Carolina. There he became proficient in multiple disciplines of dentistry including wisdom teeth extraction, implant restorations, root canal therapy, crown and bridge treatment, cosmetic dentistry and periodontal surgery.

In the summer of 2013, Dr. Olson and his family moved from Fort Hood, TX after serving our men and women in the US Army. Working on many young soldiers has turned Dr. Olson into an expert in wisdom teeth extraction. Dr. Olson has done thousands, most of which are impacted and would be considered very difficult for a general dentist. He is very happy to be providing quality dental care for adults and children in Boise and the surrounding areas.
