Spring is here!

Warmer weather can improve your mood and be smile inducing, so make sure to put your best smile forward. Speak to us! There is a lot we can do to improve your smile and make it all that it can be.

|Bring Your Children in for a Checkup!
When you visit Haas Dental, we want to make sure you and your children feel at home. Our family dentists strive to make a kidís first dental visit fun and painless so they donít develop a fear of the dentist chair and are motivated to keep their smile in tip top shape.
At our office we offer entertainment for kids to help reduce their dental anxiety. Our TVs in the rooms are set to childrenís programs and we also have a pond where kids can feed the koi fish. The koi fish in the pond always enjoy seeing the kids because it means they get extra full! After an appointment all kids are able to choose a prize from our treasure box.
To help those with dental anxiety we use nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas) to ensure overall patient comfort and satisfaction.
In many cases we perform treatments without the use of anesthetics. Instead, we use our Erbium Dental Laser for a quick and relatively painless experience and/or nitrous oxide sedation
