Meet the Doctors

“I understand how bad dental pain can be. I’m here to help.”

hansen_croppedHi, I’m Dr. Hansen! I understand how your life may be disturbed by tooth pain and I can get you back to living the full life you deserve.

I want to take the stress and pain out of your surgical procedure. I will work with you personally to make the experience a stress-free and comfortable one.

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, I earned my bachelor’s degree at the University of Utah. I then attended dental school at the University of the Pacific, and upon earning my DDS, I pursued oral and maxillofacial surgery training at UCSF Fresno in Central California. I enjoy spending time with my beautiful bride of 10 years, Linden Badger Hansen, and our four sons.

Please let me know how I can serve you. I look forward to meeting you!
