Dr. Tanner Diggs is a third generation resident of Missoula and a fourth generation dentist. Growing up with dentistry on both sides of his family, he formed a passion for the art of dentistry early in life. Dr. Tanner was born and raised in Missoula and was valedictorian of his graduating class at Sentinel High School. He then attended Santa Clara University and studied science and studio art. In addition to school work, Dr. Tanner spent his college years working in a variety of dental environments including orthodontic and periodontal offices, as well as a dental laboratory. Pursuing his passion for dentistry, Dr. Tanner attended University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and graduated with High Honors in 2015. While earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, he was fortunate enough to meet his wife and fellow dentist, Dr. Kate Diggs. Since starting his career, Dr. Tanner has worked in both private and public health clinics providing comprehensive dental care to patients in underserved areas of Minnesota and Montana.
With the opening of Diggs Dental Care, Dr. Tanner is so excited to return to Missoula to provide quality and patient-focused dental care to the community that he so dearly loves. Dr. Tanner enjoys all aspects of dentistry, and particularly loves the attention to detail and precision that is involved in high quality restorative and cosmetic dentistry. He enjoys working with patients of all ages and looks forward to treating your entire family while maintaining a lasting relationship with each individual patient. Outside of the office, Dr. Tanner spends his free time outdoors, embracing all of the amazing adventures Montana has to offer. His favorite activities include hiking, biking, rafting and skiing. He is happiest when he can enjoy these activities with his wife and son, Everett, by his side.
