Pediatric Dentist


Wausau, Rhinelander



Welcome to First Impressions, I’m Dr. Meghan Nation.   I am very excited to have joined the First Impressions team in my hometown of Wausau!  After graduating from Newman Catholic High School, I earned my Bachelors of Science degree in Neurobiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

My summer breaks during college were spent working as a dental assistant for my father, Dr. Carl Hash.  I was immediately intrigued by both the science and the art of dentistry and was inspired to pursue it as a career.  I earned my doctorate of dental surgery degree from The University of Iowa.  Through my experience in the pediatric dental clinic during dental school, I realized that I really enjoyed working with children.  After dental school I pursued advanced training in pediatric dentistry and completed my pediatric dental residency at Children’s Hospital of Michigan.  I enjoy and value having a role in creating positive dental experiences in young patients to facilitate a lifetime of great dental visits and healthy smiles!


I am an active member of the following professional organizations:

  • American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
  • American Dental Association
  • Wisconsin Dental Association
  • Central Wisconsin Dental Association
On a personal note, when I’m not practicing dentistry I enjoy spending time with my husband Tony, son William, daughter Caroline, and our dog Remi.  I also enjoy cooking, traveling and spending time outside in beautiful central Wisconsin!
