OrthoArts | Get Started With Bakersfield's Most Trusted Orthodontist

We Welcome New Patients

Create Your Perfect Smile

Choosing the right orthodontist to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted is a big decision. At Gianquinto OrthoArts, we want your experience with us to be as easy as possible. Our office uses the latest technology and treatment methods to offer the safest and most comfortable treatment options, customized to suit your needs.

If orthodontic treatment is in preparation for dental implants or other prosthetic work, a second consultation may be needed to review your treatment plan and sequencing. Dr. G will always coordinate your care with your primary care dentist and/or other specialists. After your visit with Dr. G, you’ll meet with our financial coordinator, who will help you create the best plan for your new smile to fit your budget.

What to Expect at Your First Visit

At this appointment, you’ll see our fabulous office oasis and meet the OrthoArts team. We will then take some photos, measurements and possibly an x-ray or two. Dr. G. will review all of the information, meet with you to perform a complete exam, and discuss your orthodontic treatment options with you.

Starting Treatment

Visits to the Dentist During Orthodontic Treatment

Visits to your family dentist every six months for cleanings and checkups is essential to your overall dental health. These visits are even more important during your orthodontic treatment with us to make sure your teeth and gums are as healthy as they can be. We are happy to coordinate your care with your family dentist so that you can be confident that you’ll achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
