I found Dr. Olinger to be totally competent, informative, and caring. It obviously still enjoys being a dentist after so many years in the field. He explains in easy to understand terms and lays out options for the patient to choose what would be best for them weighing the pros and cons.

He explained everything very clearly and was incredibly honest. He had the opportunity to tell me I needed a lot of work done in South America to be re-done but instead was very honest about it all. Very highly recommended! I am sending my husband and my mom to him!
