Andy Ingersoll, DMD
Dr. Andy Ingersoll is the newest doctor at Carson City Pediatric Dentistry. His interest in dentistry started at a young age during a visit with his great-grandfather, who was a dentist. His office was located in the basement of his home, and Dr. Andy remembered thinking dentists must have the best job ever with all those cool tools they get to use!
Originally from Utah, Dr. Andy lived in France as a church missionary for a few years after graduating from high school before coming back to Utah to attend Brigham Young University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in French and a minor in Business.
After graduating from BYU, Dr. Andy attended Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland, OH. In 2007 he received a Health Professions Scholarship while serving as a commissioned officer in the United States Air Force while attending dental school. He went on to graduate in 2010 and was awarded the Deans Clinical Achievement Award for being one of the top clinicians in his dental class in 2010.
Dr. Andy continued his path by completing an arduous Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska, which strengthened his skills in advanced dentistry procedures.
Following his residency, the Air Force transferred the Ingersoll family to England where they served a three-year tour at RAF Lakenheath, near Cambridge, UK. Dr. Andy thoroughly enjoyed serving his country in the United States Air Force and contributed greatly to the mission of the 48th Dental Squadron.
During his time in England, Dr. Andy found a passion for pediatric dentistry. He especially enjoyed his time working with and treating the children who were stationed with their parents and decided to pursue additional training in pediatric dentistry. He and his family returned to Utah, where he was very fortunate to be one of two residents accepted into the Pediatric Dental Residency Program at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. He completed specialty training in June of 2018.
Dr. Andy met his sweetheart, Lauren, while in college. They are kept busy by their five active children, three girls and two boys, and as a family they enjoy traveling, skiing, hiking, biking and adventuring.
Kevin Olson, DMD
Dr. Kevin Olson, a native Nevadan, grew up in the small Nevada town of Pioche. He was the valedictorian of his class in a high school with about 200 students. He graduated Magna cum Laude from the University of Nevada, Reno, with an English degree and attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, School of Dental Medicine in 2009, graduating Summa cum Laude.
As a board-certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Olson’s goal is to provide positive dental experiences early in childhood to keep kids dental visits fear-free into their adult lives. Early in dental school, he witnessed a very difficult and uncomfortable dental appointment for a little girl. Thinking she was likely to continue to be fearful of the dentist for the rest of her life, he worried she would suffer additional dental problems. From that point forward, Dr. Olson set out to prevent some of those terrible experiences early on in an effort to change kids’ dental experiences.
In 2011, he completed his pediatric residency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and then immediately came to Carson City and opened Carson City Pediatric Dentistry. In 2019, Carson City Pediatric Dentistry opened a second location in Dayton, Nevada, called Dayton Pediatric Dentistry.
As a diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. Olson is well versed in the specialty of pediatric dentistry.
He is a member of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association®, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Northern Nevada Dental Society, National Dental Association, and the Nevada Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Olson met his wife, Teah, at UNR while she was completing her degree in nursing. They have four children and spend family time playing sports, reading and increasing Star Wars trivia knowledge. Dr. Olson’s favorite hobby is woodworking, and several of his projects adorn the office. His most recent masterpiece is the TNT toy box.
Dr. Olson is passionate about helping children and helping make their early dental experiences positive for the rest of their lives. He also hopes that by creating more and more winning smiles, he can help the Resistance keep the First Order from taking over the galaxy.
Jeremy John, DMD
As a board-certified pediatric dentist, Dr. John loves working with children and providing a positive and enjoyable dental experience!
Born a native Nevadan and member of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, he has long awaited the opportunity to return home and provide care for his community after completing his educational journey. After graduating from Weber State University in Utah, he obtained his dental degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, School of Dental Medicine in 2009. He then provided general dental care to tribal members of the Zuni Pueblo in New Mexico for four years as a member of the Indian Health Services, which reinforced his passion for pediatrics.
In 2015, he completed his pediatric residency at Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, serving as chief resident. To provide his patients with the highest standard in pediatric dentistry, Dr. John prepared for and achieved the pinnacle in pediatric dentistry, the written and oral board of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. He currently holds the status as diplomate in the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
He is member of the American Dental Association®, the Northern Nevada Dental Society, and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and also currently serves as President of the Society of American Indian Dentists.
He met and married his love, Lori, while attending college in Utah and they have three very active children who eagerly anticipate free time with their dad after work. He enjoys spending time with his family in the outdoors, camping and hiking, playing sports and attending Wolf Pack sporting events. They love Carson City and you will probably see him and his family supporting the local community with AYSO soccer, Carson City Little League and at the pool swimming with the Tiger Sharks!
Dr. John is passionate about both helping children and making visits to the dentist as pleasant and fun as possible for the young patients!
