Thank You for Choosing Badger Dental Group

New Patient Information

We are always welcoming new patients to our dental practice in Grand Forks, ND! Thank you for choosing Badger Dental Group as your dental care provider. We appreciate the confidence and trust that you have placed in us. We truly care about our patients and we want you to feel comfortable with our entire staff.

During your first visit, we encourage you to come 10-15 minutes early to allow for checking in and filling the correct paperwork out. Please be ready to provide an ID and insurance card.

Let’s get started!
Please take a moment to review a few key policies below:

Patient Portal

Patient Portal is an easy, convenient, and secure internet tool that provides you with quick and secure online access to your dental account from anywhere at any time. The Portal allows you to view appointments, complete registration forms, view proposed treatments and treatment history, and view and pay bills online. If you are an existing patient or would like to become a patient of Badger Dental Group, please call our office at 701-775-4751 for more information and to be set up for this free service.

Dr. Badger enjoys working with his excellent staff, finding comprehensive solutions for patient’s dental concerns, making in-office restorations with the CAD/CAM unit, and especially interacting and getting to know and care for his patients. When not working, Dr. Badger love the outdoors, hunting and fishing, golfing, and riding his motorcycle. In addition, he is an avid Fighting Sioux fan.


Payment is always expected at the time of treatment unless we know your insurance will be paying 100%. All options for payment will need to be discussed with one of our Scheduling Coordinators or our Business Administrator.

We accept Cash, Checks, Care Credit, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.

Treatment Plans

If it is discovered that you need any dental treatment, a treatment plan with an estimated co-pay, will be prepared prior to the beginning of any procedures. Treatment could be altered if your dental needs change. The patient will be notified of any changes in treatment.

Dental Insurance

At Badger Dental Group, we will work with you to help you get the maximum benefit possible. Because your insurance is an agreement between you and the insurance company, ultimately you are responsible for all the charges. Therefore, you will be expected to pay your deductible and your estimated co-payment on the day services are rendered unless other financial arrangements are approved.

Please know that we will do everything possible to see that you receive the full benefits from your insurance company. If for some reason your insurance company has not paid their estimated portion within three months from the start of treatment, you are responsible for payment in full at that time.

Payment & Appointment Policies

Usual and Customary Rates

Our practice is committed to providing the best treatment for our patients and we charge what is usual and customary for our area. You are responsible for payment regardless of any insurance company’s arbitrary determination of usual and customary rates.

Missed Appointments

The time you reserve with us is yours and yours alone. In the event that you will not be able to keep your appointment, we respectfully request you to notify a Scheduling Coordinator at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment date. Of course, emergencies do happen – and we understand. Please help us serve you better by keeping scheduled appointments. Should you continually fail or miss your appointments, we have a “three times and you’re out” policy.

Delinquent Payments

It is our policy to charge finance fees at 1.5% for outstanding patient balances after the balance has been outstanding for 60 days. In addition, all payments returned due to non-sufficient funds will be subject to an NSF fee of $25.00.

We strive to be thorough in everything we do, taking time to be the best we can be. We encourage you to call our office at 701-775-4751 if you have any questions.
