Meet Dr. Hanania
HANNA G. HANANIA, DDS, PC
Hello, I am Dr. Hanna Hanania. I am the oldest of three children. My brother, sister, and I have amazing parents. They instilled many important values in my siblings and I, such as honesty and respect. They also taught us self-confidence, excellent communication and problem solving skills. I grew up in Ramallah Palestine; just 16 miles north to the old city of Jerusalem. After graduating from Friends High School, I moved to the United States to attend the University of Maryland. In 1997, I completed my Bachelor of Science, majoring in Biochemistry and Political Science. From there, I decided to continue my educational journey and follow in my father’s footsteps to become a dentist. I applied to University of Maryland’s School of Dentistry. In 2001, I graduated with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
I relocated to Virginia and became an associate in a corporate dental practice. Growing up watching my father practice dentistry, I realized that I didn’t just want to be a good dentist. I got a piece of paper and wrote down the qualities that I thought I should possess. My list included excellent communication skills, to be detailed oriented, to have patience, to be organized, and to be committed to my patients (after all my patients would become my dental family). While developing my list of qualities to become the best dentist that I could be, I evaluated my beliefs of a dental practice. At that point I discovered that the corporate practice where I was an associate was not meeting the criteria that I needed to obtain my professional goals. I believed it was in the best interest of my patients, my dental team, and I to purchase the corporate practice and create the vision that my team and I had for our patients. Time has moved so quickly. It’s hard to believe that it's been almost 20 years since I first wrote my professional desires on that scratch paper. I have continued to write that vision over and over every year while adding to it.
Dentistry continues to progress creating a need to continue my education. Attending many dental seminars helps me to educate my patients and introduce new technologies into our practice. Being a member of the American Dental Society and its local branch organizations (The Virginia Dental Society, The Northern Virginia Dental Society and The Woodbridge Dental Society) allows me a source for local continuing education, as well as access to exclusive resources.
I am honored to say I still have the original team/dental family of four that I started my practice with. These ladies have literally been my second hands. Over the years as we have continued to grow, I have added other team members to our dental family. All of these ladies have been the backbone of my practice.
Though Dentistry is my true passion, I have other interests. I feel it is important to give back to our community. I am extremely active in our surrounding area and neighborhood schools. I help fund local foundations and donate my time and services to non-profit organizations. I am a board member of the Holy Land Christians Ecumenical Foundation (HCEF). I also believe that it is important to remember where you came from. I return home every year to provide dental services to people of Palestine. I am the founder and chairman of the United Arab Students Association (UASA) and Network of Arab American Professionals (NAAP). I recently held the position of the National President of the American Federation of Ramallah, Palestine. I was part of a wonderful team that helped form a coalition for Palestinian American Organizations across the United States as well as a chairman of Al-Awda and Arab-American Leadership Council in Virginia.
I am not only about work, politics, and our community. I recognize that my foundation starts at home. None of my greatest accomplishment was possible without the support of my wife. She is my soulmate and the one who helps keeps me grounded. She and our three children are my biggest cheerleaders. My life is truly blessed
