Hanna

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am Hanna. I am half Korean and half Irish American. I’ve traveled to many places in the world and I am grateful that I’m able to live the American dream. I’ve been with our practice for over four years now, first as a dental assistant and now as a registered Dental Hygienist with a certification to deliver local anesthesia.

I take pride knowing that our patients are given ideal options and through dental education can make the best decision for their oral health. Besides working, I like to dabble with arts and crafts, home renovations, and crafting beer. Stop by to say Hello and show us your smile!
