John P. Hansen, DDS
Dr. Hansen believes in natural, beautiful smiles created through custom cosmetic dentistry and high quality general dentistry. Each cosmetic procedure and treatment is focused on the physical and emotional comfort of his patients, while blending aesthetic considerations with functional necessities. 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.”A native of Sacramento, Dr. Hansen graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Genetics followed by his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from UC San Francisco in 1994. Dr. Hansen is a past lecturer and clinical instructor in esthetic and reconstructive dentistry at the Rosenthal Institute (NYU, New York) and the prestigious Kois Center (Seattle, WA). He continues to be an invited speaker and lectures internationally on topics related to esthetic dentistry.
Unique among cosmetic dentists, Dr. Hansen has one of the only on-premise cosmetic dental laboratories on the West Coast. Working with a full time ceramist, he is able to monitor a patient’s treatment cycle and progress firsthand. “I don’t believe in ‘farming out’ my patient’s care,” he says. “My practice is about providing personal attention. Over the years, I’ve been proud to form relationships with several generations of families.” Dr. Hansen has placed over 10,000 esthetic veneers and crowns throughout the last 20 years.
Dr. Hansen is also the co-inventor of the pediatric zirconia crown, a revolutionary product that has given children a healthier and more esthetic option to the traditional silver stainless steel crown.
Dr. Hansen lives in Auburn, CA, and enjoys yoga, mountain bike riding and skiing. He is the father of three grown children, one of whom is following his footsteps and going into dentistry.
