About marshfield pediatric Dentistry


Dr. Julie Hantson

Dr. Julie’s interest in healthcare started at a young age when she lived in Belgium where her grandfather was a family physician and her uncle was a dentist. While growing up, she lived in 4 different countries with her family. She saw first hand how medical and dental care was handled in Europe, Canada and the US.

When she first entered the medical field, Dr. Julie worked 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 who owns her own practice, 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 family. She is an avid runner and enjoys all types of exercise. She enjoys trying new recipes and traveling to different cities.
