Meet Dr. Megan Hanson

Dr. Hanson can’t wait to meet you! She’s pursued 11 years of higher education to become an engineer, a dentist, and an orthodontist, and she is excited to create a beautiful, healthy smile with you.

Dr. Megan Hanson was born and raised in Sugar Land (a Houston suburb) and attended Clements High School. She graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, where she saw the light and decided to pursue engineering smiles. She received her DDS from The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston, where she was nominated to the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Dental Honor Society and the Dean’s Student Excellence List. After dental school, Dr. Hanson completed orthodontic residency in Houston, earning a Master of Science in Dentistry along with a Certificate in Orthodontics.

Outside the Office

When she’s not crafting smiles at the office, Dr. Hanson loves making guacamole and eating tacos with her husband, Troy. They met in the engineering program at UT, and he works as a strategy consultant. Troy races triathlons, which helps balance out his huge sweet tooth. The Hansons enjoy being outdoors and traveling to places with mountains where they can hike or go snow skiing. Dr. Hanson likes learning new things, whether from a podcast, book, or documentary, so when you see her make sure you recommend your recent favorites!
