"I am board certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine, and double board certified in Sleep Medicine. I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Michael Hansen as a collaborative colleague in various aspects of sleep and breathing cases. Often sleep disordered breathing problems have underlying structural causes from under developed jaws. These sleep disordered breathing issues often introduce other sleep disorders. Dr. Hansen and I will often work together to address these problems. Dr. Hansen works on the structural side of the problem while I address the medical aspects of these disorders. In the severe cases, Dr. Hansen will provide a referral to me for aid in setting up CPAP or other specific needs the patient may have. Working in a collaborative team gives our patients the best of both worlds and allows for a higher quality of care."

"Dr. Hansen has managed some of my most severe patients with palate issues. He is truly dedicated to this issue. He has always been patient in his approach. He helped my daughter with her palate issues, and I will be forever grateful for his kind and thoughtful care. I have trusted him and will continue to trust him as the dentist for my whole family."

"I have had the honor and privilege of working closely with Dr. Hansen as he assesses and treats patients for frenuloplasty and orthodontia. My background is in physical therapy with an emphasis in Sequential Manual Therapy. My practice revolves around assessing the entire body and releasing joints, muscle and tissue to properly align and promote fluid mechanical movement of the body. I have found in the past 5 years incredible correlation of restricted frenulum of the lip and/or tongue with restricted fascia of the entire body, resulting in decreased range of motion, pain and stiffness. I regularly work on the frenulum of the upper and lower lips and tongue to improve fascial movement, but when Dr. Hansen and I began working together, I was able to see what a huge shift his releases gave to each individual client.
We first noticed the shift when treating patients on the same day at a training. I would assess and treat the patient with manual therapy until I felt their body was moving as fluidly as possible. He would immediately perform the frenuloplasty then I would reassess while the patient was still in the dental chair. I immediately noted an improvement to their cranial rhythm and decreased tightness in their occipital bone and upper cervical regions. As the day went on, we noticed improvements to the entire fascial system. We saw immediate improvements in head, neck and shoulder posturing, better diaphragmatic breathing and even had one patient report improved mobility in her feet and ease with gait.
Since the training, we have been able to refer patients to each other who would benefit from both body work and frenuloplasties or orthodontic care. Dr. Hansen’s knowledge of the cranial system and the importance of fluid movement and proper alignment of the joints is allowing his patients to receive healing in a much faster time-frame. He sees the importance of proper breathing patterns, tongue posture and when to refer out so that the individual can receive bodywork to promote whole body healing.
It has been a career enhancing experience and I am incredibly thankful for his knowledge and wisdom so that we can help provide accelerated healing to those in the metro area."
