You can learn more about Dr. Hanson and what brought her to our practice below.
Dr. Hanson saw that dentistry would allow her to combine all of her passions into one career path. She always knew she wanted to be in the medical field, plus as a naturally artistic and crafty person, the opportunity to work with her hands every day made dentistry an obvious choice. After 30+ years in the field and serving countless patients, she still looks forward to work every day.
Dr. Hanson’s college career began at Wayne State University, and she went on to earn her dental degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She then completed a one-year residency at the VA Hospital in Boston, and after finishing, she taught at the University of Michigan for 10 years. Even though she is out of school, she says her education has never really stopped, as she continues to take courses every year so she can stay on top of the latest breakthroughs in dentistry.
Dr. Hanson loves fiber arts and working with wool, so her weekends often involve making things for both herself and her friends. Her other hobby used to be breeding, raising, and showing Pembroke Welsh Corgis, which she did for over 30 years. Today, she shares her home with one corgi and cat that she’s more than happy to spoil.
