Dr. Nathaniel Hansen is not just your orthodontist; he’s your neighbor who understands the value of a bright, confident smile. Born and raised in the heart of Kansas, Dr. Hansen’s journey to creating beautiful smiles has taken him from the vibrant streets of St. Louis, Missouri, to the sunny landscapes of Mesa, Arizona, and now to our vibrant community here in El Paso, Texas.
Dr. Hansen’s educational journey is as diverse as the smiles he creates. He started with a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish from BYU Provo in Utah, where he was not only known for his academic achievements but also for his spirited alter ego, Cosmo the Cougar. His passion for communication and connection shines through in his ability to put patients at ease.
Taking his commitment to excellence further, Dr. Hansen earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree at Creighton University School of Dentistry in Nebraska. But he didn’t stop there. His thirst for knowledge led him to complete his Orthodontic Residency at Saint Louis University in Missouri, where he honed his skills and earned a Masters in Dental Science. His dedication to the field of orthodontics is driven by his desire to help people achieve the beautiful and confident smiles they’ve always dreamed of.
Outside of the office, Dr. Hansen is a devoted family man. He cherishes moments spent with his loving wife and two precious daughters. Dr. Hansen’s life isn’t just about orthodontics; it’s about balance and adventure.
