Dr. Olele, also known as Dr. O, was born and raised in Southern California. It was in the melting pot of Los Angeles, California where she discovered her affinity for music, dance and theatre.
As a fan of the arts, she learned early on how she enjoyed letting her creativity flow with hands-on projects and activities. These experiences along with her time as an elementary and special health care needs substitute teacher led her to pediatric dentistry. There was nothing more fulfilling than spending a lifetime working with children and parents, as a team, to achieve healthy smiles. Given this desire, Dr. O obtained her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and pediatric dental training at the University of California-Los Angeles.
Currently, as a pediatric dentist, Dr. O enjoys making the dental experience fun, comfortable and memorable for each patient. For Dr. Olele, there is such a pleasure in helping children establish a positive relationship with their oral health and within the dental setting!
Outside of the Smilez office, she loves to journal, decorate, bake, travel and spend time with family. Dr. O loves to play with her niece and nephews and their guinea pigs, Tuck and Dale. In her free time, she finds herself exploring the different cities, restaurants and downtown attractions in the DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia areas.
She looks forward to meeting you and your little ones!
