A third-generation dentist, Dr. Hansen grew up in Waterloo, IA, and graduated from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul and the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. Happy and proud to be a part of Northwest Dental Group, he is a member of the American Dental Association, the Minnesota Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry.
A dentist since 2011, Dr. Hansen is certified to administer inhaled sedation, local anesthetic, and CPR, AED, and first aid. He has additional training in OSHA and HIPAA compliance, as well as Invisalign.
Dr. Hansen wanted to become a dentist because he enjoys the combination of the sciences and working with his hands. His patients love his calm demeanor and gentle touch. His interaction with his patients is his favorite part of his job.
In addition to helping patients at Northwest Dental Group, he also volunteers his time and talents at the Good Samaritan Clinic, which provides dental services for people who may not be able to afford them otherwise.
When he’s not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and baby boy.
