Dr. Chris Hansen
Comfort Care Dental
An Idaho Falls Dentist You Can Trust
Dr. Hansen is a local boy, born and raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He served an LDS mission in British Columbia. He then attended Utah State University for his undergraduate studies, and met his beautiful wife there. He then earned his dental degree from the prestigious Virginia Commonwealth University of Dental medicine in Richmond, Virgina. He loves spending time with his family, camping, golfing, and playing games.
Dr. Hansen has had over 150 hours of extensive post-graduate training in all forms of Sedation Dentistry. He has performed thousands of sedations over the last twelve years, and received his fellowship in sedation dentistry. This excellance in sedation has been recognized by the community and his peers. In fact most people when meeting him and his partners refer to them as the “sedation dentists guys”.
He also has privileges at local hospitals to perform sedation dentistry with local anesthesiologists. The Idaho board of dentistry recognizes him as a Sedation monitor for other dentists in Idaho who are trying to get their sedation license. Dr. Hansen has substantial training in full mouth dentistry, occlusion, cosmetic, implants, and dentures. He loves learning and does considerably high amounts of continuing education every year. He also has training and expertise outside of conventional dentistry in Botox, juvederm, and oral sleep appliances.
Dr. Hansen has had the pleasure of providing free cosmetic dentistry for a Smile Makeover giveaway to help someone in need get the smile they have always wanted. Dr. Hansen is instrumental in a community day of free dentistry called “Smiles From Santa”. This free day of dentistry started just in Idaho Falls and is now in Rexburg and Pocatello. They’ve completed well over a million dollars in free dentistry for the needy in Idaho. He also supports and participates in the programs Give Kids a Smile and Missions of Mercy national that provide the needy with dentistry.
Dr. Hansen has a gentle touch and an eye for detail, and patients find it easy to understand their treatment option after their exams. Patients are at ease with his no pain policy. If for any reason a patient feels any pain or discomfort all they have to do is simply raise their hand and he will stop and figure out how to make the patient more comfortable. In fact, he is so diligent about his patients feeling as little as possible that his team tells him that the patient is Hansen numb (meaning that the patient feels nothing when they test for numbness). He is also very gentle when getting patients numb, often they report not even feeling it. He looks at dentistry from an artistic point of view. Intensely analysing his patients for the best cosmetic, comfort, and functional results.
