Meet Dr. Esther Vice-Hanson | Sunrise Dental

Esther Vice-Hanson, DDS - Durham Location

You might say Dr. Vice-Hanson was born into dentistry, as she indeed was sitting chairside with her mother before she was even born. When she was 6, her mother, Dr. Dinah Vice, graduated dental school. Dr. Vice-Hanson remembers many days since then visiting the office and watching her mother work.

Dr. Vice-Hanson grew up in Chapel Hill and received her Bachelor of Arts in anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She quickly followed this achievement with a Masters in Biochemical and Cellular Biology from East Carolina University. She has since graduated with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry. One of her most significant academic and clinical achievements was being nominated by her faculty as an alumni member to the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Dental Society. This honor was awarded to only nine graduating seniors from her class.

Dr. Vice-Hanson’s interest in dentistry may seem obvious as she has been exposed to this career her entire life, but it is not so simple. If her mentor had been any other than her own mother, she may not have chosen dentistry. Not only was Dr. Vice-Hanson born into dentistry, but she was also given the great occasion to learn how one can make such a positive impact on so many lives. She believes dentistry is not just about dental tools or methods; it is a part of something much bigger. Dentistry offers Dr. Vice-Hanson a wonderful opportunity to connect with others and tenderly care for them to help create and maintain healthy, happy smiles. She has always believed that a smile truly can say a thousand words.
