    Yesterday Dr. Hanson pulled out my wisdom tooth. She was gentle and caring and made sure I was comfortable. I didn’t feel any pain and there was very little bleeding. She and her staff were a tremendous help guiding me through the process and keeping me calm. I have been going to Dr. Brower and Dr. Hanson for over 10 years and they are the best. I highly recommend them.

    Dr. Hanson has a wonderful beside manner and did a great job prepping my tooth for a crown. Her assistant Shea was also wonderful and both of them kept me calm by sharing stories of travel. Great job and left with a smile!

    I had my third visit yesterday to fill a cavity under a very old bridge. Dr. Buckley had discussed several options for a plan to undertake this work as part of a plan we agreed on for the health and appearance of my teeth. It was a three hour appointment for cutting away the old bridgework, filling the cavity as shown in the x-rays and putting on a temporary bridge until all the work was finalized. She and her wonderful assistant extended the most caring attitude for my comfort during all this time. As tedious as it was, I came away at the end of the appointment impressed with their professionalism and caring attitudes. I am so pleased this dental practice was recommended to me!
