Get To Know Dr. Scott
Dr. Alex Scott was raised in central Minnesota and graduated summa cum laude from St. Cloud State University with a degree in biomedical science. Having an interest in artwork, Dr. Scott discovered that dentistry was the perfect combination of science and art, requiring the same attention to detail in order to create quality work. This realization is what propelled Dr. Scott to pursue a career in dentistry.
Dr. Scott graduated in the top 5% of his class from Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society. Dr. Scott prides himself on maintaining a conservative practice philosophy and using the latest techniques and dental materials.
When he is not in the office, he enjoys golfing, playing basketball, watching sports, and being outdoors. Family is very important to Dr. Scott, and he truly cherishes the time he gets to spend with his wife and kids, as well as his close friends.
Get to Know Dr. Olson
As a Minnetonka native and graduate of Hopkins-Lindberg High School, Dr. Olson is “happy to have the opportunity to work at the dental office I went to as a kid. I feel very invested in the Glen Lake community and am encouraged by the current growth in our area.”
Dr. Olson consistently pursues continuing education to stay current on the latest advancements in treatments and technology to improve patient care. He has also completed the Post-graduate program in Esthetic Dentistry at the University of Minnesota. The program concentrates on cutting-edge cosmetic procedures, including soft-tissue laser treatments and implant restoration.
Dr. Olson is a member of the American Dental Association, the Minnesota Dental Association, and the Minneapolis District Dental Society, for which he is a former two-term Chairman of the Philanthropic Committee. He lives in Excelsior with his wife, and they have two adult children. He is happy to be working in his own community, where he also enjoys running and gardening. Dr. Olson has practiced dentistry for nearly 30 years and became a partner at Glen Lake Family Dentistry in 1992. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) licensure from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in 1988. Dr. Olson graduated from Harvard University in 1983 (where he also captained the 1983 Harvard hockey team to a runner-up finish in the National Championship).
