Tanner, Jon, DDS
So a while back I went there to have my teeth checked because I was having some pain and problems, and the recommended action was root canal. After they charged my insurance I've payed upwards of 3000$ on this one root canal and it still is not payed off completly, Not to mention the permanent crown the was placed on, broke recently, yes broke right in half. And I'm having other problems with my teeth now, So I called to make an appointment for them to fix my crown and check out my other teeth, but they said they would not give me an appointment because I had not payed off the first root canal. Even though the crown has a 5 year warrenty or so they said, They said they will not fix it. Dr. Tanner himself seems very nice, It's the staff thats rude and awful, the lady at the front will charge my bank account on Fridays knowing I have to pay rent and bills, even though I have a payment plan set up, The staff are awful people.

I haven't had any bad experiences at this office. The staff has all been nice and helpful to me. I don't think people shouldn't go somewhere because of the reviews. You should experience things for yourself. One person might have a bad experience there and someone else may have the best experience. Just depends on the service and the type of person you are.

Dr. Adams was my dentist for four years in Fairbanks while I worked at FMH. She was a delight. Very professional and always accommodating to my work schedule. My teeth were embarrassingly a tough job, yet my visits were always relaxing and as painless as virtually possible. I highly recommend Dr. Adams to anyone in the Fairbanks area.

Absolutely the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. I had extremely high fear growing up and Dr. Barbi put that all to rest after my visit with her. Why couldn't I have found her sooner? Thank you so much for being so caring and taking so much time with me to calm my nerves!

I had a great time with my first visit, I have told many of my friends about Dr. Cave's office.They are very kind and explained my dental needs clearly.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
