New dentist

A new dentist, Dr. Gina Hansen, has joined the staff at the Park Falls Dental Center, operated by Family Health Center of Marshfield Inc. in conjunction with Marshfield Clinic.

Hansen completed her doctorate of medicine in dentistry and master’s degree in public health — dental emphasis, at the AT Still University, Missouri School of Dentistry and Oral Health in Kirksville, Missouri.

She values community services and has worked with dental hygienists participating at elementary schools to provide dental care. She has also volunteered for the Missouri Mission of Mercy and Special Olympics Missouri Healthy Smiles programs.

“In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my dog and outdoor activities like hiking, volleyball and swimming,” she said.

“We are very happy to welcome Dr. Hansen to our dental team in Park Falls,” said Cheryl Lintonen, manager, Park Falls Dental Center. “She brings great energy and will be an asset for patients in our community.”

Park Falls Dental Center is located on the medical campus with Flambeau Hospital and Marshfield Clinic Park Falls Center. They serve families in Price and surrounding counties and offers dental care to people of all ages, regardless of insurance or ability to pay. A sliding fee scale assists individuals or families with limited income and no insurance.

Park Falls Dental Center is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. For more information, call 715-762-0200.
