Dr. Hyunso “Hanna” Park, or “Dr. Hanna” as she is known by her patients, has always enjoyed working with children, even as a young student. She worked as a tutor and a camp counselor every summer growing up in Atlanta, Georgia. Interacting with children came very naturally with her bubbly personality. When she started attending UC Berkeley, she was involved with the Suitcase Clinic, working as a caseworker to help homeless youth in Berkeley. It always has been her passion to work with children of all ages, from babies to teenagers. It wasn’t surprising that Dr. Hanna chose her first job right out of dental school as a traveling dentist to treat underserved children in rural Georgia. She felt the need to pursue further education to be able to provide the highest quality care for all her patients. After working as a general dentist for two years, She was accepted into a 2-year specialty pediatric dental residency at Montefiore Medical Center in New York.
Dr. Hanna received intensive training on child development, behavior management, restorative and preventive dentistry, craniofacial anomalies, trauma management, conscious oral sedation dentistry, dental rehabilitation under general anesthesia, special needs management, as well as interceptive and comprehensive orthodontics. She continued to work in private practice in Brooklyn, NY, and in Houston, TX, as an associate pediatric dentist.
Dr. Hanna lives in Houston with her husband and a toddler son. In her free time, she enjoys attending indoor spin class with her friends and spending time with her family at Memorial Park!
