Get to Know James Olsen, DDS

Dr. Olsen is an endodontist in West Hartford and Avon who is originally from Utah.

He then attended dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he participated in numerous service opportunities such as the Mission of Mercy and provided care at remote outreach clinics.

After dental school, Dr. Olsen spent five years practicing in community health centers in Utah and Montana.
