Dr. Corbett Haas DDS, MD

Dr. Haas moved to Fargo in July 2018 following completion of his residency training in Boston, MA. He is originally from Anchorage, Alaska where he developed a love for hiking, salmon fishing and skiing as well as fanaticism for all Boston sports starting with the Red Sox at age 5 (his childhood Boston Terrier was named Nomar!). Following completion of his undergraduate training at University of Alaska Anchorage, he moved to Seattle, WA where he attended dental school at The University of Washington. After this, he completed a 1-year preliminary Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery internship at the prestigious Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH)

During this grueling year, Dr. Haas was formally accepted into the program and completed his residency training at the combined MGH/Harvard Medical School Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Program. As part of this unique and comprehensive training, he received his Medical Degree from Harvard Medical School in May 2015. He also completed 2 years of accredited general surgery training and 5 months of general anesthesia training all at “The MGH”. Fun fact: in 1868, the first public demonstration of general anesthesia was performed at the MGH surgical amphitheater, now known as The Ether Dome. His oral surgical training was complete with an emphasis on corrective jaw surgery, trauma, dentoalveolar procedures, dental implants and safe and effective anesthesia. He is proud to bring what he has learned to Fargo where he continues to stay current and educated by way of continuing education and community involvement. He is board certified with the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. 

In his free time, Dr. Haas enjoys spending time with his wife Rachel and their three kids, Isabel, Peter and Franklin, all of whom are under the age of 10. He has also developed a painful obsession with golf and can often be found in the woods of the Fargo/Moorhead golf courses searching for his lost golf balls.
