A true native of Arizona, Dr. Blake Olson graduated from Chaparral High School, and then attended Arizona State University on full academic scholarship. He left Arizona to attend the University of Southern California School of Dentistry where he was awarded the USC Dentistry Associates Scholarship in addition to the prestigious National Health Service Corps Scholarship based on his commitment to public service. After completing his Doctorate of Dental Surgery, Dr. Olson became the Dental Director of a public health center in Northern California.
In 2011, Dr. Olson returned home to Arizona and joined Carefree Dentists. He quickly gained notice in the community for his extremely compassionate, gentle approach to dentistry, and his dedication to patient education. A committed life-long learner, Dr. Olson is an active member of several local and national dental study clubs. In addition, he is an adjunct faculty member at Midwestern Dental School in Glendale teaching hands-on clinical skills one day per week. He prides himself on meticulous aesthetic designs and patient satisfaction.
A lover of all things outdoors; Dr. Olson can be found with his wife Shelley and son Leif exploring the Arizona trails by foot, bike, and boat. He is very active in the Carefree Kiwanis organization and other local philanthropic programs. He says his greatest joy in dentistry is getting to know all of his patients personally and problem solving on an individual basis.
