Dr. Riar is one of a kind!!! He is highly proficient at his job and has incredible bedside manner. I recently had him put a crown on at his new office. He was able to get me in quickly, the procedure was painless, and explained everything he was preforming. His office is clean and his staff is kind and relatable. I haven’t had this type of experience in a dental office in a long time.. if ever! I’m glad we have this level of professionalism in Bakersfield.

I started my experience with Dr. Riar’s Dental about a year ago. Every time I have gone in, I feel welcome and cared for. All the five star ratings given are true!!! The office is so nice and clean. All staff are kind and provide excellent bedside manner to each patient. As a patient, I don’t feel like just another patient. I have built a great relationship with the staff. I feel so comfortable at each visit and receive great dental care. I highly recommend this office.

I wanted to thank Dr. Riar & Team for taking such great care of my teeth! They made sure the visit went promptly and have all the technology and kindness that make going to the dentist a fun experience! Everyone is so friendly and focused on serving, they even made my referral appointment for me right there on the spot! I highly recommend Riar Dental Arts for any and all your Dental needs. I look forward to going back!

Always so scared to go to the dentist until I came here ! Best dentist so far !

I know it is odd to say how much you appreciate your dentist but I am. Dr Riar and his staff are amazing. Dr Riar is kind and patient and always explains things in a way that I can understand. They are also gentle and work well with people who might have fears. I have a 11 year old daughter who understandably get nervous but Dr Riar and his stafff always make her feel comfortable and safe. My daughter lost her retainer at Olive Garden but her Ortho is based in San Diego. Dr Riar jumped right into action and coordinated with her Ortho in San Diego and made the molds and everything for her to get a new one saving us a trip to San Diego. I will forever be grateful for that. I highly recommend him and his staff all wonderful people who really care your concerns. They are accommodating with appointments and understand when things happen. No judgement ever. I would never go to another dentist.

I was extremely nervous when I had found out that my previous dentist was retiring.  If you know me you would know that I cant stand change.   I know this is normal for most people but not me.  After my first visit and then my wifes first visit my mind was at ease.  This has to be the best dental office that I have ever dealt with.  Everyone in this office are focused on one thing the patients.  Dr. Riar takes his time with each patient and is 100% genuine with them.  I really cant think of what else to say that hasn’t already been said.

Chris D. from Bakersfield, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m glad I found this guy.  I thought it might of been fluke the first time I went in and everyone including Riar were super friendly and courteous, but every time I go back I get the same awesome customer service.  It is extremely rare to find people that actually care about you as a human being in the world where it’s genuinely about the dollar.  Riar knows his stuff and does not pressure you.  He makes you feel extremely comfortable and is very courteous.

I had a wonderful experience while at Dr. Riar’s dental practice today. They have very friendly competent workers who make sure you’re comfortable and have everything you need for a pleasant appointment. The doctor is extremely intelligent and makes sure nothing is raising a red flag that needs to be checked before letting you leave. All their bright smiles are so welcoming and make for a bearable time at the dentist.

Dr. Riar is by far the best dentist I have ever had!!! (I have had many in my lifetime). He’s beat them all. The number one reason – is his GENUINE friendliness and concerns for his patients! When I tell him my concerns or fears – HE INTENTLY PAYS ATTENTION and is patient – even understanding with my hectic life. I really appreciate that. It’s not fake! You feel like you’re talking to a friend :)) On top of all of that his office is clean well equipped and his office staff is SO SWEET- constantly offering or asking if we need anything. Last and not least he’s SHARP – breaks things down in easy terms and is very informative and thorough in his explanation of needs- including giving overall advice about life and health! He did great work on my husband, daughter and is taking care of my dental needs in a well thought out plan. I feel like I’m going to a 5-star hotel and not the dentists office – (at least not the ones I was use to in the past).

Arrived 15 min. early. Was ushered into a room almost immediately (when was the last time you were seen early by your dr or dds?). Almost before the hygienist was finished prepping me, Dr. Riar was there and beginning to work. Granted, I was only there for a cleaning and checkup but the efficiency and friendliness of staff and Dr. Riar is nothing short of amazing. I told Dr. Riar, before leaving that not only have I never had the dentist clean my teeth in 30 (only hygienists) years but that he was the most gentle and considerate one to do so. Highly recommend!

This is by far the most welcoming and comfortable dentist I have ever been to! Dr. Riar and his staff were fantastic and explained every step from beginning to end. They were very patient and did not rush through any steps although i was the last patient. Dr. Riar explained my treatment options with no pressure to agree on any unnecessary dental work! Overall fantastic experience, I highly recommend!

The staff and Dr.Riar were all fabulous. From being greeted with a smile by the lovely young ladies at the front desk, in the exam room and to Dr. Riar sitting and talking with me about my concerns and current issues all made for a positive experience . Dr Riar was referred by a good family friend and he exceeded my expectations with his genuine concern , knowledge,and attentiveness to my concerns. I look forward to starting treatment in the next few weeks after years of frustration in not being heard by a dentist. Thank you for a great first meeting.

The entire staff were extremely kind and helpful. They showed me what was most important, and helped me come up with a game plan. They understand that I’m not able to pay the full amount, and are allowing me to do it in segments. Dr. Riar is very helpful in explaining the whole picture, and answered all my questions. I have a 16 yr old, and a 5 yr old. He was great with them both. I would recommend Riar Dental to people of all ages.

I have been extremely happy with everything at Riar Dental Arts. The service, care, follow up calls from Dr. Riar personally, billing, and the staff are all amazing. I was nervous at first because I had been a patient of Dr. Jelmini for so long, but Dr. Riar and his staff eliminated those nerves very quickly. Recently I called in a favor for a friend who was in severe pain, and they got him in right away and treated him like he had been a long time patient. I highly recommend Riar Dental Arts to anyone in need of dental work. Thanks Riar Dental Arts for all you do.

I am a new patient to the office. My first visit was a consult where I met Dr. Riar. He was very kind and explained my options clearly. The staff are very welcoming. I have been back to the office two othsr times now. Each time I have been greeted with smiles. My next visit I may be having a procedure. I don’t like to post these scores until I have had a full experience. I’ll report back on how things go with the next steps in my care. So far, I am very pleased.

Dr. Riar and his staff are amazing. The office has been completely remodeled and it is BEAUTIFUL!!! The new procedure chair is extremely comfortable. Dr. Riar’s dental equipment is state of the art and brand new. Every detail of his method is explained in an easy to understand manner. Dr. Riar is young, and fresh out of school. He uses the most up to date technique with extreme care. He is a humble yet highly profession young man. I recommend Dr. Riar and his staff with my highest personal statement. Thank you Dr. Riar

I’ve only been treated a couple of times by Dr. Riar, but every visit was great. The staff are welcoming and quick to help. Dr. Riar has excellent bedside manners: he takes the time to talk with you, carefully explaining his observations and recommendations. I had fillings done recently, and it all went very smoothly.

Dr. Riar and his team are easily the best dental team in all of Bakersfield, and I doubt it’s close .. between his professionalism, his sense of humor, his bedside manor and his staff–who are all great–Dr. Riar makes the dental experience a pleasant one. I showed up at his office needing a lot of work done and in a lot of pain .. several visits later, my teeth look much better and I feel much better. Hands down: the best in town

Beverly F. from Bakersfield, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just had my appointment with Dr. Riar  today . It was a wonderful experience. The bottom front 6 teeth were in horrible shape. They were worn down from age and grinding my teeth at night. Dr. Riar used his artistic talents to sculpt them with bonding. I’m so excited they  look beautiful. I know years down the road I’ll eventually need veneers but for now it looks great. Thank you Dr. Riar your the best and the staff is so personable.

Carissa H. from Bakersfield, CA (Source: Yelp)


You won’t find this kind of bedside manner and hospitality at other dental practices. Dr. Riar and his staff are incredibly kind and accommodating. Dr. Riar is so personable and relatable that you feel like you’re visiting a friend. I’ve had a crown placed, cleanings, and zoom whitening with this practice, and I have no complaints. The new location is amazing as well!

Ken D. from Tehachapi, CA  (Source: Yelp)


Look no further if honesty in a dental office is important along with being competent .  Today was my first time going to Dr. Riar for a consult  on a implant procedure that I thought was necessary due to a dental debacle some yrs. back by a different Dr.   Fast forward Dr. Riar indicated that the procedure  I thought was going to be necessary nor implant was necessary and that he would just file down a the crown on the tooth that became the issue of concern .  The diagnosis of my situation not only saved me time and money it saved the un-necessary pain  that I would have  had to endure  both pre/post procedure .   I can’t thank Dr. Riar enough for his honesty  .

I never write reviews, but this is hands down the most pleasant dental office I have ever been to. …I always wonder if places with so many 5 star reviews are legit- Well, I can honestly tell you this place has definitely earned the reviews you see. The staff members are genuinely friendly and gentle. Dr. Riar is skilled and has great bedside manner. The office and its equipment is modern, I never wait long or feel rushed, and they even have all the small details (like chapstick and water bottles) to help you feel comfortable. I literally have no complaints and highly recommend this office to everyone.

Prnay C. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing service! Friendly receptionists, quick registration process. Not to mention Dr. Riar, who is an expert in his field, that takes the time to explain all the details of the procedures to his patients, empowering them to make their own informed choices. I would not recommend any other dentist in Bakersfield over Dr. Riar!

My experience at Dr. Riar’s office and with the staff has been excellent! I had to visit Dr. Riar a few times this past year and each time I’ve gone, I have been greeted and assisted promptly. Dr. Riar makes sure to explain any procedures he has to perform on me thoroughly and is willing to answer all my questions to ease my concerns. I am glad to have found Dr. Riar’s office via a co-worker and have recommended his office (and will continue to recommend) to my friends and family.

Mary D. from Bakersfield, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had to have a lot of dental work done over the course of a year.  Dr. Riar developed a treatment plan and explained it thoroughly to me before he did any work.  I now have healthy gums and teeth, and a great smile (something I haven’t had in years).  Dr. Riar and his staff are professional and friendly at the same time.  I have referred family members and a friend, and will continue to do so.  I feel very fortunate to have found Riar Dental Arts!

Dr. Riar is the best dentist I have ever gone to in my life! I’ve never felt more confident that I’m getting the best dental care at Riar Dental Arts. Dr. Riar is the friendliest and most professional dentist I’ve been around. He is extremely thorough and experienced – from the most common procedures to the complex, I know I’m always in great hands. Additionally, I love the layout of the office – it has such a welcoming layout and design. Plus, it’s equipped with all the best, state-of-the-art tools to make sure we all get the best care and service possible. I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Riar and his incredible team!

Dr. Riar did a phenomenal job with my titanium dental implant for a missing tooth. The crown he inserted after the bone healed looks and feels incredibly natural. He explained the entire process in detail and answered every one of my questions thoroughly. In addition, the efficiency of the entire crowning process was highly appreciated as it only took about 30 minutes of my time. I highly recommend Dr. Riar and the warm Riar Dental Arts staff.

Thanks to the Nunlist family, we were recommended to this dental office. My daughter has always had very high anxiety when going to the dentist. So much so that we have been turned away and dental offices have referred her out. I can’t even put into words how well todays visit went. All the way home and even now continues to rave about them. Here’s some of her comments, “that was so fun”, “I’m going to get cavities just to go back.”, They’re my new besties.”, “They changed my life.”, “when do I get to go back.” As a mother I am beyond relieved and grateful for our new dental office. Also a bit shocked. She’s never behaved so well at a dental office. Hands down the best care she’s ever received! Thank you thank you!

I have the utmost respect for Dr. Riar and his crew. They are friendly and professional and actually do care about us patients. I have had some pretty extensive work done by the Doc, and everything was just as pain free as humanly possible. Dr. Riar is an excellent dentist. His staff is amazing. Go to this office..and you will leave fixed and happy. That’s a tough job for some dentists..not Dr. Riar..

Great experience! For the first time ever, I will be scheduling my 6 month check ups every time!! Dr Riar and his staff are very friendly and easy to talk to (and MOST importantly, understand)! I liked that he is not pushy for unnecessary procedures. My husband, who needed much more extensive work, never felt a thing after or during his root canal and is also happy to be going back. Highly recommended from a person who has visited at least 6 different local dentist offices!

I see Dr. Riar regularly and he takes great care of my teeth. I recently had my wisdom teeth removed, a procedure that I had been dreading because everyone tells you horror stories and how terrible it is going to be. That was not the case at all. Dr. Riar and his office staff made me feel completely comfortable and at ease. Everything was explained to me before it happened and I was totally comfortable the entire time. I would refer anyone to Riar Dental Arts for any dental work. The office is very clean and updated with the newest technology’s and everyone in the office is very friendly, polite, and professional.

Brad Swanlund (Source: Google)


I’ve been going to this office for around 20 years. When Dr. Riar took over the practice, I was concerned that the exceptional service would take a hit, but that hasn’t been the case. The staff is friendly, we rarely (if ever) have to wait, and Dr. Riar makes a trip to the dentist as pleasant as possible. The renovations to the facility are great as well.

Dr Riar has a gentle touch and was very personable. I’ve been looking for a dentist for awhile now because of my high anxiety to dental work. Dr Riar was patient, explained everything and answered all my questions. He’s also up to date with everything! Digital xrays which means less radiation and he takes pictures of everything to show me what needs to be done.
