Develop a Dental Care Routine

Brush twice a day, floss every day, and use mouthwash! Establishing a routine for your dental health requires a little discipline at first, but might save you a lot of time and money in the future!

Try Fun Toothpastes
with the Kids

Once upon a time there was only one flavor of toothpaste yet today if you hop in your local market you can find multiple flavors for kids to enjoy! We even spoke to a patient about bacon flavored floss once!

Family Healthcare

Everyone has to brush, and even if you do it at different times you can always join in! Brush, floss and use mouthwash with your kids each night until its a habit for them – and feel free to still enjoy that glass of wine after!

Teeth Cleaning is Fun!

Make a star chart for every morning and night they brush their teeth for a full two minutes means that they get their favorite snack! Or a monthly gift! Up to you but we love good brushers at Riar Dental Arts.

Rock Out With Your Tongue Out

Sometimes the best time to rock out to your favorite tune can let you brush for more than the standard 2 minutes! Turn on a favorite song or hum a tune with your kids to make them smile and enjoy brushing and flossing.

At Riar Dental Arts we help educate families on making dental health a collaborative effort. As your child learns to mirror examples of healthy teeth by brushing and flossing at home you’ll feel great about their dental health, and your child will love coming in to show our team their shiny pearly whites!

Doctor Riar

“Patient-Focused Community”

“As a Bakersfield native, I consider it a great privilege to be able to come home and care for the oral health of all my friends, family and neighbors. Growing up in a tight-knit community like Bakersfield has taught me the importance of quality care and a friendly demeanor. I work diligently to make sure that I uphold the values and ethics instilled in me by all my teachers from Sing Lum Elementary, Lakeside Middle, and Stockdale High School to provide dentistry that is gentle and builds pleasant long-lasting relationships."
