Leah is one of our new team members at Olson Orthodontics! We are glad to have her join us. Below is a little bit of information all about Leah!
What led you to your current role?
I wanted to see what the orthodontic life was all about. I was previously in general dentistry for the past 5 years and now ortho for a year.
Where are you from? If not O’Fallon what brought you here?
I’m originally from Oklahoma, but my family decided to move to O'Fallon, IL when I was 9.
Did you have braces? For how long? Did you have clear or colored rubber bands? Head gear? Did you really use the floss threaders like you’re supposed to?
Yes. For 2 years. Colored rubber bands, of course! I did not have headgear. Unfortunately, I did not use the floss threaders like I was suppose to.

If Olson Orthodontics didn’t exist and you needed a totally different career, what would be another dream job?
