We Cater to Cowards!

We understand that going to the dentist is not easy for everyone. It is our goal with all our patients to provide not only the best clinical care, but to provide the best “comfort care” we can. Our team is understanding, patient, and very caring. We especially give extra TLC when you tell us you are fearful. We have changed many cowardly patients over the years, into brave friends who love coming to see us!

Call today. Our amazing, caring team will have you smiling in no time.

Preventive Dental

Preventive care and education is the most valuable treatment we can offer our patients. Scheduling regular cleanings and checkups will help to keep the cavities, pain, staining, and more down. The longer you go without regular checkups, the more expensive a procedure could be to correct something avoidable.

Cosmetic Dentistry

We provide a wide range of cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening, veneers, and tooth-colored fillings. Cosmetic dentistry is the art and science of enhancing a person’s smile. It is also one of the fastest-growing areas in dentistry. Cosmetic dental techniques have advanced dramatically over the last decade. With the improvement of materials like porcelain, composite resin fillings have a more life-like appearance.

Restorative Dentistry

At Badger Dental Group, we use CEREC technology to offer same-day tooth restoration services. CEREC utilizes 3D photography and CAD/CAM technology to assist a dentist in designing a virtual restoration (onlay, inlay, crown, or bridge) without taking impressions and, when combined with a milling unit, is able to build the actual restoration while you are still in the chair.

Invisalign® Orthodontics

Invisalign® is the “clear way” to straighten teeth, gradually moving your teeth through a series of custom made, removable, nearly invisible aligners. This is a great alternative for adults who do not want to wear braces, but want straighter teeth.

TMJ/TMD Evaluation & Treatment

The temporomandibular joint or, TMJ, acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. Dysfunction can lead to prolonged pain and discomfort. We offer evaluation and treatment for those with symptoms of TMJ/TMD.

Implant Restorative Dentistry

For more than 30 years, dental implants have been saving smiles – with an increase in their use each year! They are made with a material that is compatible with the human mouth so that they are just as strong as your other teeth and blend right in.


Had my cleaning and check-up with Jill – she was cheerful, caring, professional, and best of all, never hurt me. She is a great hygienist – I highly recommend her. And just finishing another cleaning session today, the same applies. She actually makes getting a cleaning fun – we always have such a good time even though my responses are a bit garbled! Jill rocks!



Once again, as it has been in the past, this visit was thorough and pain free. Jill and Dr. Badger are both very good communicators and explain everything and at the same time encouragers for good dental health. They understand this is a team effort between all of us. I left feeling positive about the entire experience. Additionally, they are very supportive of those with special needs. That is also greatly appreciated.



I’m a giant baby. I hate dental work. Everyone does, but I’m talking phobia level debilitating anxiety here. You can imagine what happens when you avoid the dentist for an extended period of time. I needed serious work done. I was in pain. Had a horrific experience with a literal sadist dentist and felt despondent. Someone recommended Tanabe Dental. They said, “Don’t worry, they cater to cowards!”.
“Well I’m a coward, and I need to be catered to” I thought. That was about 17 years ago and I haven’t a single complaint. Kari has taken great care of me, as has everyone else I’ve ever interacted with there. They never make me feel like a dork for needing nitrous for basic cleanings. They’ve bent over backwards to accommodate my issues. On top of all that, they do quality work and stand behind it. Great people.



Everyone from receptionist to Dr. Badger have bee phenomenal!!



I have been going here for years! They are all great people and my experiences are always very good! Dr. Badger is great and Jill does my cleanings and I absolutely love her!!
