Spring is in the Air!

What a great time to whiten your smile! With graduations, weddings and summer vacations approaching, now is the time to get in and take advantage of our Glo Pro Whitening Special.

GLO PRO is a convenient, easy way to get whiter teeth without the sensitivity. In office, at home, or on the go.... it is quick and effective! 

$50 off in-office and take home dual whitening package. 20% off all other GLO PRO products and services.
Offer valid through March 31, 2017.

The GLO PRO Teeth Whitening Device reinvents the experience of teeth whitening using patented G.L.O. (Guided Light Optic) technology.  It combines professional elements of heat and light built into a one-of-a-kind closed system mouthpiece that accelerates the whitening process, preventing the whitening oxygen from escaping the tooth surface, bombarding the stains, and making the whitening process more effective and more efficient.




Continuing Education

Annual OSHA and HIPAA Training

Dental Center staff attended our annual OSHA and Bloodborne Pathogens Training last month. Judy from Stericycle instructed the class and did a great job updating us on current OSHA and HIPAA regulations. 


The staff had their biannual CPR training. This is a refresher on how to administer CPR to the adult (age 9 yrs. or older), child (between 1 and 8 yrs. old), and infant (younger than 1 yr. old) and to understand the key steps and indications for performing CPR. 

Rondeau Seminar

Melissa D, Melissa B, and Devin attended the Rondeau Seminar in Chicago along with other assistants from all over of the U.S. During the two day session, they learned about the philosophy of orthodontics, covering: cephalometrics, radiology, forms/letters, records, functional appliances, airways, and case presentations. They are looking forward to attending the next two-day session in March!

They think of everything to improve their patient's overall experience!

A co-worker referred me to The Dental Center about a year ago. I had many issues that needed attention. Dr. Chris put together a 2-3 year dental plan of action that was manageable and financially feasible! I saw Dr. Shannon a few weeks ago to have a few teeth pulled and she was wonderful! Everyone is friendly, helpful and professional. They have patient comfort and convenience in mind with Heat/massage exam chairs, on line scheduling and communication, text appointment reminders and a blanket to cover up with while having my teeth pulled!

Great Dental Care

Found this place three years ago when my life-long dentist retired. Even though I live 73 miles away from C.R. it's worth the trip to get the very best dental care. Chris Haganman DDS is the best at his profession and has performed miracles for me repairing my teeth. Two new crowns and one new bridge later, my teeth are like new. Very friendly and professional staff.
