Dr. Racheal Hamel was born in Maine but moved to New Mexico where she grew up and completed her undergraduate studies, with a Bachelor of Microbiology with a minor in Public Health at New Mexico State University. She then moved to Kansas City to earn her Doctor of Dental Surgery at The University of Missouri, Kansas City School of Dentistry.
Dr. Hamel has experience in both the public sector and in private practice. She is a member of the ADA, KDA and the elected Northern Kentucky Dental Society, and currently is Treasure elect. From her experience in treating a broad range of patients, Dr. Hamel has a particularly strong interest in preventative and cosmetic dentistry, as well as promoting oral health within the community. She has a strong desire to continuously learn new techniques by participating in programs that increase her knowledge and abilities. She recently completed the first two courses in evidence-based advanced dental training at the Kois Center in Seattle and plans to continue expanding her scope of practice in the future.
Her calm and gentle nature creates a relaxed dental environment for her patients, especially in patients who have dental anxiety. She spends time educating her patients, informing them of their dental needs and ensuring both the patient and herself fabricate a treatment plan with the best plan of action for that individual person. She values esthetics and strives for a pleasing result, but not at the cost of function and longevity. With her time working in school-based health and being a mother herself, Dr. Hamel is comfortable treating patients of all ages.
Dr. Hamel moved to northern Kentucky eleven years ago to raise her family and considers northern Kentucky home. When she is not treating patients in the office, she is spending time with her husband, three children or two goldendoodles, Clark and Tucker. She enjoys anything HGTV, baking, traveling, event planning and considers herself a “foodie”.
