What Sets Us Apart


Dr. Ken Ricks creates a customized treatment plan for each and every patient. He works closely with area dentists and specialists, ensuring a collaborative approach to dental care that evaluates overall facial appearance, maximizes facial harmony, and achieves the healthiest possible bite. He is recently trained on a variety of orthodontic techniques, and he has brought the most up-to-date orthodontic technology to Bakersfield.


We are on a mission to provide you and your family the greatest customer service experience ever! We will go out of our way to make sure you know that we care. We schedule extra time for each of our appointments to answer questions.


Dr. Ricks cares greatly about the community around him, involves himself in local schools and sporting teams, and supports the businesses around him.


Offering traditional braces, clear brackets, lingual braces and Invisalign clear aligners, Dr. Ricks has a solution to every orthodontic challenge and will work with you and your dentist to achieve the perfect result.


Sometimes the best treatment that an orthodontist can provide is no treatment at all. We are in the business of providing our patients with appropriate treatment at the best possible timing. Dr. Ricks will not recommend starting treatment on a child which would be more effective and efficient at a later time.


If you think you or your loved ones need orthodontic treatment, there is no reason wonder. We offer complementary exams where Dr. Ricks will sit down with you and discuss whether you can benefit from orthodontic treatment. At the consultation we will discuss your concerns and determine the most appropriate method of achieving your goals.


We believe in the power of a beautiful, healthy smiles and will work with you as you invest in improving the look and feel of your teeth. If orthodontic treatment would benefit you or some of your family, we will do everything in our power to make the treatment affordable. We offer no-interest financing and some of the most flexible payment options around.
