I may be one of the youngest staff to work in this office, but I have been here the longest. I began working as a sterilization assistant at 18 years old for Dr. Keith Hansen. When Dr. Scott Hansen came to work with his dad, I became his dental assistant. I have been is this office  for 24 years and never worked anywhere else. I really enjoy getting to know our patients. Some of them I have known for so long feel like family.  I have had the opportunity to take a break from working with our patients in the chair, to working in our front office as well.  It has been fun working both aspects of the practice.  When I’m not at work I like to travel, play soccer and softball, and spend time with my husband and three boys.
