Welcome to Our Practice
To our patients,
As healthcare professionals, the health and well being of our patients, staff, and their families has always and will always be our top priority. We are experiencing an unprecedented chain of events in our country, and difficult decisions are being placed before us.
After careful consideration and upon the recommendation of the Nebraska Dental Association as well as the American Dental Association, we have come to the conclusion that we must temporarily close our office beginning tomorrow, March 18, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With our profession falling into the highest risk category for infection and transmission, we feel this is the safest measure to take to protect our patients, our staff, and our community. Our goal is to reopen April 1, but as you know, this event is an ever-changing landscape. We promise to keep you, our valued patients, informed of any changes via our Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as by phone and email.
Staff will be checking voicemail regularly and will be on-hand in limited capacity to address DENTAL EMERGENCIES ONLY. These conditions include:
*Severe Toothache (thumping or throbbing that prevents sleep and/or daily functioning)
*Swelling of gums, face, or neck
*Bleeding in the mouth that does not stop
*Trauma (such as broken teeth due to injury)
We will be contacting all scheduled patients in the upcoming days to reschedule their appointments for a future date.
If you have questions about something that you are currently experiencing regarding your oral health but
a) are not sure it’s an emergency
b) do not want to come in at this time or
c) would like some peace of mind regarding a current condition
We are excited to announce that we will be offering FREE virtual consults via our HIPAA Compliant platform. Go to https://swnebraskadental.yourvirtualconsult.com/ and fill out the questions and send pictures so Dr. Haag can adequately assess your situation and respond.
If you need any dental supplies while you are on quarantine go to our dental store at www.swnebraskadental.com/shop and use the code SWNDSAVE10 for 10% off to have them shipped straight to your door.
From our entire team, we want to thank you for your patience and understanding during this stressful and unpredictable time.

Our practice is home to Dr. Haag, an experienced dental professional who takes enormous pride in providing a caring, comfortable experience for every patient. We offer a wide range of dental services – from emergency treatments to cosmetic improvements, all designed to deliver exceptional patient care in a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. We even provide sedation options for patients who are apprehensive about a visit to the dentist.
Our vision is to provide comfortable, caring, patient centered dental treatment to every person that we see. We strive to provide a compassionate and friendly environment with a team that truly cares about your health and well being. We do our best to make your dental appointment an efficient, convenient and pleasant experience by offering payment options, extended hours, same day treatment, online forms and scheduling as well as several options for managing anxiety.

Technology and Patient Care
At Southwest Nebraska Dental Center, you’ll find that while we still believe in traditional small town values, we utilize the most modern dentistry techniques and tools available on the market today. We enthusiastically embrace new technologies, knowing they will maximize your comfort and help us achieve the best possible results. Our Cerec, same day crown machine allows us to place your crown in one appointment, saving you time and money. We also utilize lasers for treatment of gum disease, cold sores, and lip ties for a more effective and comfortable treatment. Dr. Haag is also a DOCS Education certified sedation dentist, which allows her to help you with your dental needs while maintaining your comfort.
Comprehensive Dental Services
Preventative dentistry is the foundation upon which our practice is built. It goes without saying that small problems are easier and less costly to address than big ones. However, Dr. Haag has the skills and experience necessary to treat even the most complex dental issues.
Whether you need a basic cleaning or a dental implant restoration, we are here to meet your individual needs. Your smile should look as good as it feels, so we focus on treatments that combine restoration and improved function with aesthetics. When you look and feel your best, it shows in your self-confidence. Your smile is your calling card to the world, so you want to make sure you’re sending the right message.
McCook dentist Dr. Kaitlin Haag and our entire staff encourages you to actively partner with us to make informed decisions that will guide and improve your dental care. To this end, we are committed to providing high quality patient education.
We strive to foster a sense of trust and confidence. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is always willing and available to answer any questions you might have about problems or procedures. State-of-the-art technology allows us to accurately diagnose and clearly explain any issues you are experiencing.
We offer many patient care items to make sure your visit is as comfortable as possible. Neck and knee pillows are available, warm towels, lip balm, nitrous oxide gas, complimentary WiFi, blankets, and sunglasses are all available.
Dr. Haag treats patients of all ages, from toddlers to seniors. We love seeing children and follow the American Pediatric Dental Association recommendations that children should be seen by age one. The earlier good dental hygiene habits are instilled in our younger patients, the fewer problems they will have in adulthood.
Regardless of your age or dental health status, we look forward to helping you achieve a healthy, radiant smile at our dental office in McCook, NE.
