Dr. Claudia Elizabeth Olsen was born in South America but spent much of her childhood and early adult years in sunny South Florida. She graduated Cum Laude from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA and went on to complete her Masters of Public Health at Harvard University, and her specialty in pediatric dentistry at Yale-New Haven Hospital/Yale School of Medicine in CT. She has received extensive training in all aspects of pediatric dentistry including the dental care of well and special needs children, dental trauma, sedation and hospital dentistry.
Dr. Olsen is the recipient of the 2011 Richard C. Pugh Award, which is a national recognition conferred annually to only a handful of pediatric dentists who score in the top 3% of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry Qualifying Exam.
Before coming to Kid’s Dentistree, Dr. Olsen served as a pediatric dentist for the United States Air Force in Europe and Ohio. She is an active member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Public Health Association. She speaks Spanish and is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist who loves that dentistry is continually changing and improving.
Dr. Olsen has been practicing since 2010, treats each child who comes through her office as her own, and is empathetic to both the dental and emotional needs of the child and the parent. She is excited to be a part of your child’s oral health journey!
When Dr. Olsen is not practicing, she is spending quality time with her family, and loves to cook, watch movies, and travel.
