I have had an absolute fantastic experience with Dr. Tangeman. He is extremely through, informative, and experienced which increases my confidence that my teeth are in good hands. His office is clean and the staff is great. Every hygienist I’ve had  has been to thumbs up! I am acknowledged, by name, each visit which makes me feel very welcomed.

Dr. Tangeman has been my dentist for over 30 years. He has always provided excellent care and friendly intelligent advice on treatment options, explanation of procedures, and oral health tips. Dr. and staff are thorough and professional. These are just some of the reasons I have continued to be a patient of Dr Tangeman for all this time.

I have been scared to go to the dentist for all my life!!! But I have to say there was something different about Dr Tangeman! He explained to me what had to happen, what to expect and he would comfort me throughout the process. 3 filling later and a teeth cleaning I am ready to go back and continue this wonderful experience. I tell you what!!! You have to go see him, you have nothing to loose but he will save your teeth!!! Thank you so much Dr!!!

I have been coming to him for almost 8 years and he is also my child’s dentist. He is the best! He does everything to make you feel comfortable everyone in that office is helpful and super polite. No matter what insurance I have I refuse to change dentist. He takes care of his patients and is never in a hurry he makes sure his work is done to perfection.

Dr Tangeman is an Amazing dentist who truly cares for his patients. When he steps in the room with you he is focused on what’s the best dental care he can give you. His office staff are always so welcoming and friendly. I truly feel that he cares about his patient’s and isn’t out there trying to see how he can get more money. He is a Top Notch Dentist and I’m grateful to have him as my dentist.

If you’re looking for a new dentist or your first dentist I highly recommended going to Dr. Tangeman. Very professional and lovely staff at his office. Dr. Tangeman not only has accepted me as his new patience but is doing wonders on my teeth and always keeping me smiling. Extremely nice and clean facility and top of the line technology.

David C. from League City, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr Scott Tangeman  has been my dentist for nearly a year now and I could not be more pleased with his services.  He has provided me with very personal service and explained a variety of treatment options.  The cost of services he has provided have been as expected and reasonable.  During treatments, Dr Tangeman is always concerned for my comfort, and he has never caused any pain.

Dr. Tangeman is hands down the BEST dentist I have ever visited. He was extremely kind, very thorough, and explained everything perfectly, so I never failed to understand what was going on and what my treatment would be. I am so relieved I have found the dentist who really goes the extra mile to ensure the best quality and care. I definitely recommend, He is the Best dentist in Bakersfield hands down. I will be bringing my daughter here as well. & the office staff is also exceptional ❤️

Everyone at Dr. Tangeman’s office were so welcoming and kind. Dr. Tangeman walked me through the process and made me feel very comfortable and help shake my nerves of the procedure. I even heard him talking to a child around 6-8 years old with his mother and I can only recommend that you at least visit with the doctor and you will understand. On another note I never take the tim to fill these things out.

Something to say about a professional who maintains there craft by constantly training on new practices. My family and I have been visiting Dr. T for almost 2 years now and never had a bad experience. It’s also a blessing to have a Dr. Your kids are not scared to visit. My son had a bad infection in a crowned tooth and Dr. T saw him after hours to insure his safety and health where liked after. Thank you Dr. T for all you do for me and my family.

I’ve been going to Dr. Tangeman since I was born, and he has always been a great dentist to me and my family. He always goes the extra mile like when I broke one of my teeth on a Sunday. He left what he was doing and had me in his office in an hour getting it fixed up. I honestly doubt there is a better dentist than him in all of Bakersfield and highly recommend him.

Dave Salge (Source: Google)


I’ve been extremely pleased with Dr. Tangeman and his staff. Dr. Tangeman is the most knowledgeable dentist I’ve had, and at 66, I’ve had a few. I especially like the way he listens and explains things clearly and that he’s always concerned about any pain or discomfort the patient might be experiencing. I highly recommend Dr. Tangeman to anyone with dental needs.

My wife, Charlotte Merrifield, had the absolutely best experience at Dentist Tangeman’s office! The office staff is extremely helpful and accommodating, and Dentist Tangeman took the time to get to know my wife with a direct medical history; and, he far exceeded her expectations in a dentist with his sincerity and care in her treatment! If you are looking for an excellent dentist, my wife and I highly recommended that you see Scott A. Tangeman!!

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Tangeman for well over 30 years and, when our children lived at home, they were also his patients. Dr. Tangeman is highly skilled, as well as being exceptionally personable, kind, and compassionate. His staff are all of the same caliber, and his hygienist, MaryAnn, is nothing short of wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Tangeman for anyone in the Kern County area seeking a dentist.

I have been going to Dr. Tangeman since I was a little girl. He always explains what he is going to do in great detail. His practice is a very clean and friendly atmosphere to be in. His staff is amazing and they go out of their way to help me. I always leave feeling super happy with the experiences I’ve had and every time I’m there I end up laughing somehow. He keeps up to date with new technology in his field to make sure his patients are getting the best service they can. He now has a way to pre-screen for cancer in the mouth that I don’t believe is being done by many dentist. I highly recommend visiting them because they truly are the best.

Scott and his team have been have been looking after my oral health for more than 20 years; he and his staff have been very helpful, knowledgeable, and have maintained a positive atmosphere throughout this time. They are very thorough in their work, making sure to address any concerns you may have and discuss solutions to current or potential oral health issues they discover. Thanks to their diligent work and timely solutions, I have been able to avoid costly procedures on more than one occasion. I highly recommend Dr. Tangemann and his team to those looking for a dentist.

I’ve had a lot of dentists and Dr. Tangeman is one of the best. I needed someone who understands TMJ and would pay attention to how dental work affects my bite. On my first appointment, he took notes as I gave him my extensive dental history. He explains what needs to be done and why. The office support staff is great, friendly and professional.

Harry Mason (Source: Google)


Dr. Tangeman has treated my wife and me for many years. Without exception he has provided excellent dental care for both every day dentistry and more serious dentistry. I would recommend him to any person needing dental care. On a more personal level I must say that he is brilliant and erudite and his exceptionalism exists with his everyday honesty and kindness.

Dr. Tangeman is knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and funny. I am a new patient, and wish I’d found him years ago. When I had my initial x-rays done, he mentioned I should try an at home remedy for something he saw, and that if that worked, I may have reason to see an ENT. I know that many people have an issue going to the DDS (I’m not generally one), but I believe Dr Tangeman’s friendly manner would ease even the toughest cases.

Patricia I. from Bakersfield, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Tangeman over 15 years ago and I feel very fortunate to have found a dentist that truly cares about his patients.  I had a variety of different dental related problems back then and Dr. Tangeman took the time to explain exactly what procedures should be done, what the procedures would entail and most importantly explain during the procedures what he was doing and why.  I honestly feel that Dr. Tangeman and his team are amazing and I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a wonderful dentist to call and make an appointment for a consultation!!

Luis S. from Bakersfield, CA  (Source: Yelp)


BY FAR THE BEST DENTAL OFFICE I’VE EVER BEEN TO! Front the front desk all the way to Mr. Tangeman they are very welcoming and informative. They treat you like family and take time with every visit. I made the mistake of going somewhere else because that place was open on the weekends but safe to say I will not ever go to another dental office ever again. I recommend this office because they are efficient, knowledgeable, caring, and most of all they pay attention to the needs of their patients.

I have had dental anxiety all my life and dreaded going to the dentist. I have been going to Dr. Tangeman for many years and found him to be very kind, patient and professional. Likewise, his staff are friendly and make me feel relaxed, comfortable and calm. I highly recommend Dr. Tangeman. He is the best!

Marvin Bailey (Source: Google)


I had another great appointment with Dr. Tangeman today, I never dread going to see him. I’d say he’s my favorite dentist of all the dentists I’ve seen in my 62 years. He asks a lot of questions, trying to give you the best service he possibly can. And doesn’t let you leave dissatisfied. And the office staff are very friendly and help you work with your insurance. All around, a five star experience!

I moved to Bakersfield 3 years ago and was still trying to make it back to Kentucky to see my family dentist once or twice a year! It wasn’t very practical! Reluctantly, I knew it was time to find a local dentist! Dr. Tangeman was recommended to me by a local friend for his kind personality and convenient location, not to mention his impeccable dentistry. From my first impression, his office staff were so kind and welcoming, making the insurance processes a breeze! They are nothing but helpful and they make the environment fun! Dr. Tangeman, from my consultation to my most recent visit, has been nothing but nice, easy to talk to, and very informative! He clearly explains his process and was attentive to my needs! I couldn’t have asked for a better Dentist to transition to, here in Bakersfield!

Hi All, I came to see Dr. Tangeman with several overdue cavities. It took almost a year, but he repaired all of them — some required a lot of special care to avoid root canals. I could not be happier with the result. Dr. Tangeman is very gentle! Even the slightest pain is cared for immediately. Just as important as his thoughtfulness and the quality of his work is his ‘chairside’ manner, so to speak. The doctor has a great sense of humor and wonderful stories. ***My husband can’t believe that I look forward to going to the dentist !! Thank you so much for taking good care of me. PS: The staff is terrific too.

My dentist is the bestest. Bad grammar but it’s true. He never hurts me , gives me discounts, has a great front office, great employees, the best magazines that I usually resist stealing and laughs at my jokes. Thanks for all you’ve done to keep me smiling. I look forward to many more years of dentistry at your place. God bless. And why is this coming year so clear?

Scott Tangeman and his staff have been taking care of my oral health for over 20 years, including though three sets of braces and a significant oral surgery. There has never been a lack of quality care from Scott or his staff; they are very proactive in their work, making sure any concerns they see during appointments are addressed, and provide satisfactory answers to all my questions. I would highly recommend those looking for a high-quality dentist to contact their office.

I happen to be in Bakersfield doing some audiobook recording. During the process I felt a cap fall off a molar in my mouth. My own dentist, being 300 miles away, was not an option. Fortunately, Steve Horton, CEO of Pacific Health Education Center, knew Dr. Scott Tangeman. Steve kindly called him and explained my plight. The office squeezed me in—this very afternoon! The cap could not be saved… One of my other teeth had worn a hole in it. So I will be getting a new cap. Anyone who has been in a similar situation, can imagine how grateful I am. I would give Dr. Tangeman and his staff ten stars but there is only room for five. Tomorrow I get a semi-permanent cap while my new one is being created. I am not even losing any recording time! As I said… ten stars!

Dr. Tangeman and his Staff deserve nothing less than a five star review. I came to this office for a second opinion, and received the best personalized care one could have in a dentist office. I recommend this dentist for their professionalism and their eagerness to make their clients informative and welcome. Thank you!

I have been coming here for the last two years and honestly the best dentist in town !! I have very sensitive teeth and Dr. Tangeman always makes sure I don’t feel pain and properly takes care of all my treatments ! Great customer service and now I don’t mind going to the dentist. I would recommend him 100%.

Great staff of professionals that pride themselves on customer service. Phenomenal dental work and impeccable attention to detail. Even the periodontal recommendation I received from them was outstanding work. The office itself is immaculate and is a great family environment. I come from a military background and the pride this office displays in day to day procedure and protocol is on point. Would recommend Dr. Tangeman and his staff to anyone.

Tanisha Ennis Barker (Source: Facebook)


I cant even begin to thank Dr. Tangeman and his staff enough! I was a difficult patient with a lot of fears of going to the dentist. At the beginning I would literally be in tears because I was so scared, now even though I still do not like the shots lol I trust Dr. Tangeman and his staff wholeheartedly and happy to say that my lifelong fear has subsided and I no longer dread going to,the dentist. If anyone has any sort of fears about the dentist, I recommend Dr. Tangeman, he and his staff make you feel like you are part of their family instead of just another patient.

I have been a patient of Dr. Tangeman for many years! They have always treated me with great care and kindness! From the time I walk into the door they treat me like family! Dr. Tangeman first concern is our dental health is at its Best! I have a rare autoimmune disease that effects my gums.. if Dr. Tangeman hadn’t encouraged me to go to UCLA I would of never been diagnosed and began treatment! I am so thankful to him for that! I would recommend this practice to everyone! Caring dental care at its Best!

My favorite dentist I’ve ever had. He is very kind, patient and thorough. He even supported me as a breastfeeding mother and let me stop during long appointments to feed my little one since she feeds on demand. His office staff and dental hygienist Mary Ann Miller are excellent. I always look forward to going. I always am recommending them to others. Grateful to be his client. His patience in willing to work with my husband too, and make progress with fears to make him feel comfortable is beyond amazing. I really love his kindness. Can’t thank him and his staff enough for working with us.
