New Patients

A Family Dentist for You and Your Loved Ones

Our dental practice prides itself in serving comprehensive, affordable dental care to your entire family. We aim to provide gentle care that addresses every one of your oral health needs. Patients have been seeing us from generation to generation, and we gladly welcome the new patients that come into our family dental practice.

Your First Visit

At your first visit with us, Dr. Tangeman will perform a comprehensive oral examination and discuss any oral health concerns that you may have. During this visit we get to know you, and allow you to get to know us discuss, and Dr. Tangeman’s treatment philosophy. We will take any necessary dental x-rays and also perform an oral cancer screening.

Patient Forms:

Office Amenities

Our computerized treatment rooms, intra-oral cameras and digital x-rays help us improve patient communication and involvement in their treatment planning process. We also offer blankets and neck pillows to help patients feel comfortable and at home while they are visiting us.

Insurance & Payment Options

As a courtesy, we provide insurance coordination services for our patients with their plan provider. We understand that sometimes our patients may not have insurance, or their insurance plan may not cover all types of care that we offer. Because of this, we also provide flexible payment options like CareCredit and in-office financing to help our patients afford any necessary services that will need to be performed. Dr. Tangeman strongly believes that patients should be able to afford all of their dental care needs, and our office will work with each patient to make this happen.
