Meet the Doctors

Hanson Family Dental is a general dentist office that has been providing care for its’ patients for 40 years and counting. Our team loves making our community smile!​ Hanson Family Dental is owned and operated by wife and husband duo, Dr. Mia Russo and Dr. Samuel Lee. 


Dr. Mia Russo was born and raised in Longmeadow, Massachusetts. 

She attended Longmeadow High School and graduated at the top of her class. Fueled by her interest in science and health care, she then attended Bay Path University in Longmeadow with her goal of one day becoming a dentist. She graduated Summa cum Laude with her Bachelor of Science and then made her way to Boston to study dentistry at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Russo is the first alumna to graduate from Bay Path University and become a dentist.

While at Tufts, she had the opportunity to serve her community while practicing dentistry in the Connecticut Correctional Institutions. Other interests she pursued while at Tufts were: dental advocacy, dental materials, dental education in conjunction with community. She excelled in her clinical treatments, graduated with her Doctor of Dental Medicine and then moved to Rhode Island to practice dentistry. After her time there, she moved back to Connecticut to be closer to family. 

She brings with her years of experience from private practice in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. While in private practice, she had the opportunity to expand her knowledge and completed her implant certification.

As a general dentist, Dr. Russo enjoys meeting her patients and getting to know them and their families. In addition, she enjoys educating them on their oral health and treating their oral ailments. 

On her time off, she enjoys taking walks by the harbor, going to the beach, cooking and eating out, spending time with family and her loving husband. 


Dr. Samuel Lee is a surgically trained prosthodontist who specializes in implant dentistry and full mouth reconstruction. He is from Orlando, FL and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedical Sciences from the University of South Florida Honors College. Dr. Lee’s passion for excellence and uncompromising standards led him to earn his Doctorate of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and subsequently to complete a three-year prosthodontics residency at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, one of the most competitive residency programs in North America. At UConn, Dr. Lee earned his specialty certificate in Advanced Prosthodontics, a certificate in Dental Implant Surgery, and a Master’s degree in Dental Sciences (M.D.Sc.).

Dr. Lee is adept at managing sophisticated esthetic and functional dental rehabilitations utilizing in-depth knowledge of classic and contemporary prosthodontics and the surgical placement of dental implants. He provides complete smile makeover solutions utilizing the All-on-4/6® treatment concept, as well as crowns, bridges, veneers, and dentures. 

Additionally, Dr. Lee completed the rigorous process of challenging and passing the Board Certification Process in Prosthodontics. After passing, Dr. Lee is now recognized as a Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics and was granted the status of “Fellow of the American College or Prosthodontists” (F.A.C.P.). There are less than 1,000 board certified Prosthodontists throughout the country. This is roughly less than 0.5% of all practicing clinicians in the United States.

Dr. Lee’s belief in giving back to the community began at an early age where he volunteered as a coach for underprivileged youth tennis players through a US Tennis Association sponsored program. Graduating early from college gave him the opportunity to volunteer as a coach for his high school’s tennis and golf teams. Continuing his volunteer service during his years at Harvard, Dr. Lee was a student coordinator for Give Kids a Smile in Cambridge and was part of dental outreach to the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe on Martha’s Vineyard. Dr. Lee is currently a part-time faculty member and lecturer at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine in the graduate Prosthodontics department.

Outside the practice, you can find Dr. Lee on the golf course, tennis court, or cooking and traveling with his wife, Dr. Russo.
