My name is Emily.  I grew up in the Foley/ Sauk Rapids are and currently live in Rice.  I graduated from St. Cloud Technical and Community College in May of 2022.  I will be finishing my bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from MSU Mankato in May of 2023.  I have been at First Avenue Dental since June of 2022.  I have enjoyed working here and getting to know all of my patients.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, riding my horses, reading, cooking/baking and being outdoors.  I look forward to meeting you!


Hello, my name is Brittany, I graduated from St. Cloud Technical College with my Dental Hygiene degree in May of 2009.  I started working at First Avenue Dental in October of 2022.  I am loving the small town atmosphere that First Avenue Dental offers.  I believe in open communication with my patients.  Establishing quality oral health takes team work.  I grew up in the Albany, MN area and currently reside in Foley, MN with my husband and our 3 young children.  Outside of work I enjoy taking trips to Breezy Point with my family, reading, baking, shopping and spending time with friends.                                                      

I look forward to meeting you soon!


I have worked at First Avenue Dental for over 18 years. I have had the pleasure of calling patients to remind them of their appointments. I can’t believe I get paid to call and talk to all of these nice people! Sometimes I’m in the office as a Dental Assistant for Dr. Olson or just to help the office girls whenever they need some extra hands. Sometimes I make special birthday treats for the staff. Everyone is so nice and the atmosphere at the office is very welcoming.

 “I will talk to you soon!”

I work at the front desk as a Patient Care Coordinator at First Avenue Dental.  I worked at the front desk previously and decided I wanted to come back,  Dr Olson said “YES” so lucky for me I get to see all you great patients again.  When you arrive I get to greet you and send well wishes as you leave the office.  Love Seeing Your Smiling Faces!!  Outside of the office I love spending time with my family and friends and a favorite little boy Lane that calls me GAMMA…  Life is truly a blessing!! – Kim

Hello!   I’m Jill and I work at the front desk and answering phones.  I will be one of the first people you will talk to when you contact us at First Avenue Dental.   I am new to the dental world, but have worked in medical offices for 20 plus years.  I love getting to know you and making your visit go as smoothly as I can.  I am a native of Little Falls and have lived here my entire life, and may know some of you already!

In my free time I enjoy a variety of hobbies, including but not limited to, reading, plants, gardening and pets.  I can also carry on a good conversation from things like farming, kids of all ages, (mine is 25) and anything else that may put you at ease while you are in the office with us.

I have been a Dental Assistant since 2016.  I became licensed in 2019 and just love assisting in patients’ journeys to achieve happy and healthy smiles.  I grew up in the twin cities and moved to Little Falls in early 2021.  Outside of the clinic I enjoy every moment with my son.  Like to get involved in the many amazing events around the community and give support to the local small businesses.  Little Falls is such an amazing new beginning for me and I can’t wait to meet  you and help Dr. Olson help you maintain your healthy smile.  Hope to meet and see ya soon – Angel

My name is Amanda, I have a son Jaxon.  I am a Dental Assistant here at First Avenue Dental.  My goal in life is to be the best mom I can and to build a good life for my son and myself.  I did it!! I’ve always dreamed of joining the dental field, start my career and build up from there.  I work with such amazing people especially Dr. Olson.  I am so appreciative to be working side by side with her, living my best life, and working towards my dream.  I enjoy working hands on with patients and bringing joy to others at my job and own life.   Love spending time with my son, playing outside, board games and going walks, rollerblading and water parks etc. I am excited to meet all of you at and hope that I make your experience smooth and easy and continue to see you for years to come.
