Our patients and our dental team are what makes us love our job! Our entire staff is committed to providing you with an exceptional experience from the moment you arrive, throughout your dental appointment with us.
Each and every time.
Patient and Scheduling Coordinator
My name is Liz and I am from High Point, NC. I started working in the dental field a few years ago after working as a Certified Nursing Assistant. The dental field is a much better fit for me and my favorite thing about my job is helping patients feel confident about their dental treatment. I also love providing a comfortable environment in which they can receive that treatment.
I love traveling and cooking. My favorite food is ice cream and anything with potatoes. I am an NC State fan. One thing on my bucket list is to travel to Australia and New Zealand.
My name is Mary and I am originally from Michigan but moved to Cary in 1995. I attended NCSU and graduated in 2009. I then decided to continue my studies by pursuing dental hygiene. I completed the Wake Tech Dental Hygiene Program in 2012.
I love to read, hike, and bake and spend quality time with my two beautiful daughters and my husband! My heart will always be in Raleigh. I love the food, different scenes, exceptional natural areas, and everything there is to do!
I love working with my dental team/family because we all share a main goal: to give the very best dentistry has to offer everyday to every patient and have a good time!
Hello. My name is Luke and I am originally from Chapel Hill. After high school and some college I joined the Army and served for four years as a Medic. It was during this time that I decided to pursue dentistry as a profession. After the army I completed my undergraduate degree at UNC Chapel Hill.
I married my beautiful wife earlier this year and we live in Hillsborough. I love cooking, traveling, and coaching CrossFit.
I am currently in the process of applying to dental school and feel lucky to have such a great opportunity of working with Dr. Hansen. My goal as an assistant is to improve our patients lives every day by providing excellent care.
Hey there! My name is Rachael Hansen and I have been a Dental Hygienist since 2007. I grew up in Chapel Hill, NC and when I was in high school I started my first job working at a dental office. I was hooked. Ever since then I have known I wanted to work in the dental field but had no idea that I would one day be married to a dentist as well! I attended the University of North Carolina where I studied at the UNC School of Dentistry and received my for my Bachelors in Dental Hygiene. During dental school, Dr. Hansen and I attended a Christmas Parade downtown on Salem Street and it was then that we fell in love with Apex and decided that after graduation, we wanted to make this area our forever home.
I consider myself very lucky to be a part of a profession that I love! I love coming to work every day and working with our outstanding staff and patients. My favorite part of my job is when a patient tells me that this was their “best dental experience ever”! I love getting to know our patients and their families and look forward to watching our families grow together. I have worked with many dentists but being able to work alongside Dr. Hansen has been a dream come true. I have so much confidence in the quality of his work and in his steadfastness in remaining ethical and conservative. I know, better than anyone, that he holds himself to a very high standard!
I love Mediterranean Food, Almond M&M’s and Goodberry’s Frozen Custard. I am a lifelong Tarheel Fan. I love running and cooking. My favorite thing to do is having campfires in the backyard with Dr. Hansen and our four children.
My name is Jessica and I am a native to North Carolina. I grew up in Wilmington, NC and love the Tarheels! I wanted to be in the dental field for as long as I can remember. In high school at my own dentist’s office and knew it would be a great fit for me. I went to UNC Chapel Hill (my dream school…Go Heels!) and got my BS in Dental Hygiene in 2007.
My favorite thing about my job is when I am able to help patient’s feel their best and educate them on how to stay feeling that way. It’s amazing when a patient comes in feeling nervous about dental treatment and leaves the office saying they had a great experience. I enjoy getting to know my patients and keeping up with their families. They become like friends after many years and it’s fun to watch their children grow up. I feel lucky to work in an environment where our team works together and becomes like family…it makes it feel less like work! In addition to practicing dental hygiene in the private practice setting, I have also enjoyed teaching as an adjunct faculty at UNC School of Dentistry. It’s fun to teach at my Alma mater and take the knowledge and experience from over 10 years in the field and share that with others who are just starting their career.
Two things I enjoy doing in my spare time are going to the beach in the summer and going to football games/tailgating in the fall. But my most favorite activity is spending time with my husband and our new baby, not matter what we are doing! I look forward to sharing the beach and football with him as he grows up.
My favorite food is Pizza and pretty much all Italian food. So my dream vacation would be to go to Italy.
Dental Assistant & Scheduling Coordinator
Hey there. My name is Christina. I grew up in Maryland. I started in dentistry when a close friend suggested I try dental assisting. During my schooling I fell in love with working with patients and their smiles and I knew dentistry was the right path for me.
My favorite thing about my job is helping patients get through their appointment and literally watching broken teeth become whole again. It certain cases this can be a life changing event for our patients. It is awesome to be a part of helping patients smile confidently again for the first time in a while or possible ever. I also feel happy when we are able to help patients overcome their dental anxiety.
In my spare time my favorite thing to do is read, be outside and spend time with my family.
My favorite foods are Hibachi and sushi. Some things on my bucket list include traveling around the world and a road trip around America and visit all the different state parks and landmarks.
