About marshfield pediatric Dentistry


Dr. Julie Hantson

Meet Dr Julie! Dr. Julie started her healthcare journey working in a hospital as a research assistant for patients with ADHD. Through this experience, she realized that she had a knack for communicating with children and that she loves changing young lives through positive health habits. Inspired by her uncle and other childhood dentists, Dr. Julie attended Nova Southeastern University Dental School.

She decided to stay at Nova Southeastern for an additional 2 years after dental school for specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry. Now, as a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, she is excited to encourage healthy dental hygiene habits and help little ones maintain strong smiles.

When not at work, Dr. Julie loves spending time with her husband and two children. Together, they enjoy building forts, playing outside, and exploring New England!
