Meet Dr. Hannah Hurley
Dr. Hurley grew up in a small Mississippi River town just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. She completed her undergraduate education at Saint Louis University before moving to San Francisco to attend the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. Dr. Hurley loved living in the Bay Area. She spent her free time trying the multitude of different restaurants within the city and traveling with classmates to National Parks across the west coast.
Dr. Hurley excelled in her studies, leading her to graduate with high honors in the top 10 of her class. She earned multiple excellence awards for her dentistry along with an academic scholarship from the United States Navy. Most notably, Dr. Hurley was voted “laugh heard around the world” as her boisterous laugh always alerted her classmates that she was present in the clinic!
Upon graduation, Dr. Hurley reported to her first naval duty station in San Diego. She immediately fell in love with the area and knew she wanted to return one day. Dr. Hurley then served two years at the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Arizona. During her time as a dental officer, Dr. Hurley met some of the kindest and most selfless people. She feels very privileged to have cared for our country’s exceptional servicemembers. Her military service will always remain one of the most influential periods of her life.
As she moves on to this next phase of her career, Dr. Hurley is looking forward to integrating herself into the greater San Diego community. She loves getting to know her patients and acting as a resource for all their dental needs. She strives to make her patients feel comfortable and supported during what she understands can be a stressful experience for some.
Outside of dentistry Dr. Hurley enjoys any outdoor activity. She spends her free time traveling, weight lifting, paddle boarding, cooking, camping, and hiking on the many trails around San Diego. Dr. Hurley is also an avid reader and is always looking for new book recommendations!
