Dr. Danielle Hahn

Dentist

What I enjoy most about dentistry is the opportunity to create long-lasting relationships with my patients and their families. I love that dentistry allows me to express my creativity and learn about new technologies in an ever-changing field. I look forward to providing quality comprehensive care and helping my patients love their smiles. My professional interests within general dentistry include orthodontics, Botox, cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and oral surgery. I am very excited to provide these services to patients in Buffalo and the surrounding areas.

When I am not practicing dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Logan, and our golden retriever, Ivy. We are both originally from Hutchinson, MN and currently reside in Watertown, MN. We love Minnesota summer and winter and spend our free time biking, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and spending weekends at the cabin.

Controlling Dental Fears

Want to take control of your dental fear? Before you make your appointment, keep in mind following techniques to help you:

  • Be up-front about your fears. When you make the appointment, tell the receptionist about your concerns, so the dentist and staff know to treat you to most relieve your fears.
  • Ask questions. Often, the anticipation is greater than the actual event. Don’t be nervous about asking your dentist questions ahead of time about the procedures you’ll need. Knowledge empowers people and alleviates anxiety.
  • Find a distraction. What concerns you the most? The sound of the drill? The sight of a needle? We can help eliminate the sight, smell or sound with things like headphones or other sensory distractions.
  • Discuss your pain-free options. With so many techniques to choose from, it’s rare that you’ll experience significant pain during a procedure. Talk to us about which option is right for you and your treatment.
