Dr. Hassana Ansari

My name is Hassana Hameed Ansari. I am originally from Pakistan. I received my Bachelors of Dentistry from Islamabad, Pakistan and graduated from there in 2012. I worked in Islamabad as an associate dentist for 6 months and then I got married. I moved to the United States in August of 2012 because my husband was settled here. I decided to pursue my career in dentistry here, in the United States, so that I could be licensed to practice what I love. I completed a Post Bachelors program at NC State University and then attended UNC-Chapel Hill Dental School.  I received my  Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from UNC-CH  and have been working as an associate dentist till finding my dental home here with Harrison Pointe Dentistry. 

I have two young kids, I love to read, watch tv and do out door activities in my free time. 

I love being a dentist and it will be my pleasure to serve you all.

Hi, I am a native of NC, originally from Burlington.  I graduated from Alamance Community College in 2006, making the dean’s list for dental assisting.  I moved to the Raleigh-Durham area in 2010 to pursue my passion for dental assisting in the capital city.  I have been fascinated with dentistry for quite some time.

I have volunteered with pediatric and geriatric on my quest to improve the oral health of the citizens of NC.  I am intrigued with dental technology and have enjoyed watching dental technology grow and change over the years.

I am a mother of two beautiful young women and a Mimi to two handsome grandsons and one beautiful granddaughter.  I am newly engaged and am anticipating our wedding in 2020.  In my spare time I love to talk, laugh, shop, dance and have fun.

I can't wait to see you at your next dental visit!
