Meet Dr. Olson
Dr. Suzette Olson, DDS, grew up in Brainerd, MN with a love and appreciation for the outdoors and small town living. She graduated Cum Laude from the University of MN-Duluth with her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and minors in Chemistry and Psychology. While in college, she spent her spare time volunteering as a college Math and English tutor and donated her time at St. Mary’s Hospital in Duluth in the Pharmacy Department.
Dr. Olson then pursued her dream of becoming a dentist (sparked in her by her dentist, Dr. Jack Echternacht, DDS) by attending the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in Minneapolis. There was not much spare time for outside activities, but she did manage to join a ballroom dance club and became an enthusiast for the sport. Suzette graduated in 2001 near the top of her class and was given an award as the top dental student in oral pathology. “I am so lucky to have a career I love! I spend my days meeting and getting to know people, all the while treating dental problems, beautifying smiles, educating, resolving fears and making people of all ages feel better.”
When she was asked what she likes most about practicing in Little Falls, MN she said, “It is a beautiful town where people still wave when a car passes, I love the small town feel and pace of life here.”
Currently Dr. Olson resides in the Brainerd Lakes Area and in her spare time she enjoys biking, taking continuing education classes, gardening, dancing, traveling, snowmobiling, baking, golfing and photography. She thanks Mac for his everlasting love, support and encouragement.
