Customized Cosmetic and General Dentistry
Dr. Hansen believes in natural, beautiful smiles created through custom cosmetic dentistry and high quality general dentistry.

A great smile makeover also deserves great comprehensive care! Dr. Hansen and team are big on education, wellness and health promoting dentistry.
“Put very simply, I’m a confidence builder,” he says. “I give my patients new smiles but also new possibilities. It’s very personal, very rewarding work.”
