About Dr. Hanson Dr. Hanson grew up in Alamogordo, New Mexico, and received his undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of New Mexico. He then enrolled in the Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas, where he completed his 4 year dental program.  Upon graduation, Dr. Hanson moved to Independence, Missouri. Within a few short months, he passed the Missouri Dental Boards, and married his fiancé, whom he met 2 years earlier while she was attending Southern Methodist University, in Dallas. He then started his dental practice. Dr. Hanson had the privilege of joining the established dental practice of Beth’s father, Dr. J. Donald Duensing, in the Englewood area of Independence. In 1983, a new larger and more modern office was built by Dr. Duensing and Dr. Hanson in the current location, the “Medical Woods Building.” They practiced together until Dr. Duensing retired in 1986. This year, 2008, marks Dr. Hanson’s 34th year in Independence. He and Beth have three children.                                                 PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIPS ·        American Dental Association ·       Missouri Dental Association ·        Greater Kansas City Dental Association ·        Eastern Jackson County Dental Health Association ·        Academy of General Dentistry ·        Academy of Laser Dentistry ·        Academy of Cad Cam Dentistry

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
