Here for you - always.

For over 55 years across three generations of dentists, we’ve been here for our patients providing personalized dental care in the comfort of a practice that feels like home! As long as our doors are open, our family is here for yours.

A legacy you can trust
Hastings & Havlik Family Dentistry was first established by the late Dr. Jerry Hastings in 1966 and joined by Dr. Bill Havlik in 1980 and Jerry's son, Dr. Brian Hastings in 1991. Recently, we welcomed a third generation: Drs. Myles Hastings and Christopher Havlik, who now proudly practice alongside their fathers. As a family-run practice, we understand the value in having a trustworthy dental home for your entire family, and we promise that as long as our doors are open, our family will be here for yours. Ours is a legacy you can trust.

Personal relationships that last a lifetime
You will notice immediately, it’s all about family and relationships at our office. Our doctors and staff want to get to know you personally so we can provide the best care for you. We do this by taking the time to listen. As we do, we build healthy smiles and relationships that last a lifetime. When you join our dental practice, you join our dental family.

A safe and comfortable environment
We want you to be as safe and comfortable as possible during your dental visit. Our infection control protocols are top-notch and our office environment is warm and inviting — it feels like coming home! We recognize that some have a difficult time at the dentist, and we want you to know that we’re here for you. We will work at a comfortable pace and pay attention to your needs. Our gentle touch and friendly faces will surely put you at ease.

Big-city technology with a home-town feel
We’ve been in the business a long time, and we know that technology is constantly changing. In order to provide the best care for you, we’re updating right along with it! However, just because we stay on the cutting-edge — with tech like our CEREC machine for same-day restorations or our cone beam scanner for improved diagnosis in root canal therapy and implant surgery — doesn’t mean we’ve lost our small-town feel. You get the best of both worlds here!

Dentistry at the highest standard of quality
Our legacy of generational care extends to the quality of our care. We are known for always doing our very best! In every treatment and service, we work with accuracy and precision, seeking the best possible solutions while keeping your individual needs in mind. We also take the time to thoroughly educate our patients so you can feel comfortable during treatment and confident in our work. Every member of our team is expected to meet a high standard of care and you will see the difference it makes.

Comprehensive dentistry under one roof
Did you know we can see the whole family here? That’s right! No more running around from practice to practice. From routine general and cosmetic dentistry to more complex treatments in endodontics, orthodontics and implant dentistry, we make it easy and convenient for your entire family to receive comprehensive care under one roof! Our family is ready and able to serve yours!
