Dental Care For Your Entire Family

Quality, Affordable Dentistry

Welcome to the office of Dr. Scott A. Tangeman, DDS. Our family dental practice has been providing high-quality dental care to multiple generations of patients in the Bakersfield, Shafter, Rosedale, and Tehachapi areas for years. Not only do we focus on providing affordable care to our patients, but we also make it our goal to help every patient experience care that is as comfortable as possible.

Our patients count on high quality, attainable dental care, no matter what their needs are. Children who have grown up seeing Dr. Tangeman continue to return to us as adults so that we can provide care for their dental needs – there’s no better compliment that we could receive!

More than just traditional dentistry.

The Smile You Deserve

In addition to general dental services, we also provide expanded cosmetic treatments, TMJ therapies, orthodontic treatment, and endodontic therapy (root canals.) No matter what your oral health needs are, Dr. Tangeman and his team will work with you to determine the best method of treatment, in a way that everyone can afford.

Affordable treatment options.

Financing Plans

We offer zero-interest 3-month financing as well as CareCredit financing services to patients that may need to have a payment plan to complete their dental care. Both of these options are also available to our dental insurance patients, to help them bridge any financial barriers between their coverage and care that they need.
