Dr. Hanna and Family

Meet Dr. Lorraine Hanna

With many years of experience working closely with patients in and around Kalamazoo, Dr. Hanna knows how to fulfill smile wishes and address concerns with tact and compassion.


Dr. Hanna earned her dental degree from the University of Michigan and began practicing dentistry in 1991. As a lifelong learner, she continues to expand her knowledge on cutting-edge dental techniques. She is a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry – further evidence that she is committed to understanding the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. (Only 6% of general dentists in North America are part of this elite group.) In addition, she is a member of several dental organizations and also has accomplished a Fellowship in the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation.

Treatment Philosophy

As a patient of Dr. Hanna, you can expect quality dental services and care. Along with her team, she is proud to offer a comfortable and stress-free environment. If you’ve been looking for a dentist in Westwood or Kalamazoo, or a “dentist near me,” connect with Briarwood Valley Dentistry – the dental practice thousands of your neighbors trust.

Outside The Office

Dr. Hanna enjoys being a part of the Kalamazoo community and gives back by contributing to many local charities and community groups, including the Comstock Community Center’s Adopt-A-Family program. She donates to the Kalamazoo Hospitality House of Southwest Michigan for each patient referral we receive. Dr. Lorraine is also active in Donated Dental Services, providing dental care to those less fortunate. “It’s incredibly fulfilling to make a difference in the lives of others,” she says.

She is married to Mike and together they are proud parents to their daughter, Sara. When she isn’t at the office, Dr. Hanna spends her days with her family, as a caring wife and mom. She enjoys traveling, fishing, photography, and gardening. She has played the harp, piano, and handbells, and served as president of the board of directors at Zion Lutheran Church as well as having been president of several dental organizations.
