I have being to many dentists for the past 20 years in the US. This one was the most caring and was not in a hurry to recommend dental work needed for the future. He was analytical and confident.UofU Patient November 20, 2013

Dr. Griffin was very kind, efficient and friendly. He explained what he was doing and told me what to expect during my filling appointment. It was a good experience, even if I did wear my coat and mittens as I waited for him to set up and do his work.UofU Patient October 27, 2013
My tooth extraction procedure went bad and became critical where the attending stepped in but my doctors was with me the whole time and offered reassurance.UofU Patient October 09, 2013
We were blessed to meet Doctor Olson, or as we call him a doctor with big heart. When I and my kids needed a dental care, he offered to see us for a very low payment. When I came I expected a student dentist examining us, but Doctor Olson provided care and exam by himself treating us as a respected customer. If I were a doctor, I would transplant the cell of kindness from Doctor Olson's heart to many other doctors I know. Best provider we met in Utah and a very good personality.UofU Patient September 27, 2013

I had an excellent dentist! He took lots of time with me, and gave me good tips on how to prevent any more recessing of my gums. He took the time to explain what was going on with my teeth and held a mirror up and showed me exactly what he was talking about. He was also very kind and friendly and gentle and put me to ease.UofU Patient July 02, 2013
