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.
