Meet Dr. Chris Olsen

Chris Olsen, DMD



Dr. Chris Olsen was born in Illinois but has always felt at home in the upstate. His family moved every few years throughout the U.S. and Canada, but always kept coming back to Greenville. After finishing high school in Florida, he decided to return to Spartanburg to continue his education.

Chris attended Wofford College where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. He then moved to Charleston after graduation, earning a Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Medical University of South Carolina. Before returning to the upstate, he opted to continue his training at Palmetto Health Richland’s general practice residency in Columbia. There he received additional training in general restorative dentistry, dental implants, oral surgery, sedation dentistry, and furthering his skills to comprehensively care for patients.

Chris is excited to move back home and for the opportunity to work with the great people of the upstate. In his spare time, he enjoys the outdoors, hiking, live music, fishing, and spending time with friends and family.
