Bakersfield Dentist About Riar Dental Arts

Meet Dr. Tanveer Riar

When Dr. Riar was only five years old his family made Bakersfield a place to call home.

A young but ever-spirited Dr. Riar began his education at Sing Lum Elementary, Lakeside Middle and Stockdale High School, where he then spent many weeks job-shadowing an orthopedic surgeon and dentist. As his passion for dentistry grew he attended undergrad at UCLA and went on to graduate from dental school at Case Western. As he continues providing the Bakersfield community with a familial level of care, Dr. Riar is proud to be your family’s local dentist.

Latest Techniques

Dr. Riar invests over 300 hours per year in on-going training for himself and his staff. He prides himself in his ability to ensure his patients are receiving the most up to date techniques in natural tooth preservation, aesthetics, airway science, and restoration techniques. We offer the most comprehensive care for you and your family’s dental needs, right here in Bakersfield.
