Hello! My name is Preston Hansen, and I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. My passion is reconstruction and restoration. After receiving my undergraduate degree from the University of Utah, I attended dental school at the prestigious University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco. I then went on to a formal 4 year Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency program at UCSF Fresno where I received the most rigorous surgical training available for dentists. In fact, there were no other residencies for head and neck services where I trained. So, I played the role of ENT, plastic surgeon, and oral surgeon for all emergency needs.
My oral and maxillofacial surgery training gave me the opportunity to treat countless individuals who had suffered serious deformity from experiences such as trauma, cancer, and other pathologies. Not only did these patients need their diseases treated, they needed their jaws and faces rebuilt and restored. The most satisfying part for me was reconstructing beautiful smiles and functioning teeth. This aspect of treatment, restoring someone’s smile, has had the biggest impact on my life. Being able to smile confidently and eat the food you want is an incredibly important part of feeling whole and enjoying life.
While I provide many oral surgery services, I have focused my practice in this area of restoring smiles and teeth with dental implants. I am constantly learning and researching, so I can stay at the front line of dental implant based restorations. I am one of the first dentists and dental specialists in Utah to use 3D printing and virtual surgery computer software in my practice to plan and treat patients.
I also believe there are bigger things in life than oral surgery, so whether you come see me for wisdom teeth removal or for new teeth in one day using dental implants, I use state of the art techniques to get you through your recovery and back on your journey as quickly as possible.
I hope you’ll come see me!
