Originally from Toledo, Dr. Hansen is excited to be back home as the newest doctor on the HLS team. She loves working with patients of all ages, and is inspired by the many changes that occur within patients undergoing orthodontic treatment. Being able to witness the transformation, dentally and holistically, is the most rewarding aspect of her profession. Not only is she able to achieve straighter, healthier teeth for her patients, but she also loves the confidence a new smile can bring.
Dr. Hansen received her bachelor’s degree in Biology from Denison University in Granville, OH before earning her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) from Case Western Reserve University. Upon graduating from dental school, she was inducted into the National Dental Honor Society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU). Dr. Hansen completed her residency at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, and graduated with a master’s degree in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.
Dr. Hansen is professionally affiliated with several local and national associations. She serves on the board of directors for the Toledo Dental Society, and is a member of the Ohio Dental Association, as well as the American Association of Orthodontists.

An avid runner, Dr. Hansen has completed many 5ks and half marathons, and spends much of her time in the local metroparks. She loves spending as much time as she can with family, friends, and her husband, Christopher. She also enjoys musical theatre, reading, watching soccer, and being involved in her church.
