Dr. Jim Haas
Dr. Jim Haas has always loved working with children, so his decision to become a pediatric dentist was a natural choice. After over 20 years in private practice, Dr. Jim is grateful that he has been fortunate enough to work in a field that he thoroughly enjoys. His focus is not only on the dental health of his patients, but on their overall well-being. Dr. Jim wants all of his patients and their families to feel comfortable with their treatments, but he recognizes that this can only be accomplished by assessing each individual’s needs. His calm, soothing, and often humorous approach help his patients relax and walk away with a very positive dental experience. For patients who are more anxious or have special needs, Dr. Jim has extensive training in conscious and complete sedation dentistry for children and is one of only a few pediatric dentists in New Hampshire who holds a permit to sedate children.
Dr. Jim attended the University of Vermont, and then graduated, with high honors, from Rutgers University. He moved directly from there to the University of Maryland Dental School, graduating magna cum laude. After dental school, Dr. Jim completed a 3-year residency in pediatric dentistry at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Jim Haas is board certified in pediatric dentistry, earned the title of Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, New Hampshire Dental Society, and the New Hampshire Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
It is important to Dr. Jim to spend time with his family and to be involved with his community. When he’s not reading, hiking, boating, or traveling with his kids, Dr. Jim likes to support children here in New Hampshire and abroad. He is involved with the foster care system in New Hampshire and participates in the Dentists with a Heart program, including providing screenings in local elementary schools. Dr. Jim also travels to Israel every year in conjunction with Dental Volunteers for Israel, donating his time and talents to underprivileged children, from all backgrounds, in Jerusalem.
Dr. Brian "Chip" Sullivan
Dr. Brian Sullivan, better known as Chip, has lived in New Hampshire since 2001 when he was still in
grammar school. Dr. Chip graduated from Pinkerton Academy in 2012 where he ran track and field and
he went on to study and run at the University of New Hampshire. During his time at UNH, Chip had the
opportunity to go on a mission trip to Panama with 2 dentists which left him with a burning desire to
complete another trip but the next as a dentist.
After graduating with his B.S. in Neuroscience, Chip took a year off to work and race his dirt bike. During
that year, Chip received his acceptance to Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine. During
his first year of dental school, Chip finished his motocross season with a New England amateur
championship. This competitive and self-motivated nature would allow him to rise to the top of his class
in his clinical competencies. During his final year, he was the recipient of two awards, an Excellence in
General Dentistry award and an Esthetic Appearance in Dentistry award upon graduation.
During his time practicing, Dr. Chip began to develop a new passion for dentistry working with children.
He is a member of the NH dental society and strives to stay at the forefront of technology in his field by
taking continuing education coursework. His kind and patient demeanor will leave you and your kids
with a pleasant experience at the dental office.
Outside the office, Dr. Chip enjoys mountain biking, hiking, and dirt biking. Although he is attempting to
learn how to golf, he has not had much success.
