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 in the following professional memberships:
On a personal note, when I’m not practicing dentistry I enjoy spending time with my husband Tony, son William, and our dog Remi. I also enjoy cooking, traveling and spending time outside in beautiful central Wisconsin!
