Making Bakersfield Smile

A National Leader in Orthodontics, Right Here in Bakersfield

Dr. Jared Gianquinto—known around the office as “Dr. G”—is a national leader in the orthodontics community, an awarded navy veteran, proud father, and aspiring bass guitar player (ask him about the guitars hanging in his office).

Born and raised right here in Bakersfield, Dr. G trained at Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, where he was inducted into the Endodontics and Oral Surgery honors societies.

After putting his dream of becoming a rock star on hold, he decided to join the Navy, so he went to the Naval Medical Center San Diego and completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency. Then he served as Dental Officer aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, which was much cooler than being in a band—especially that one time when he got to ride in a jet.

After two West Pacific deployments, Dr. G provided dental care for Marines all over the East Coast before becoming Chief Resident of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. As a Navy Dentist, he was awarded Navy and Marine Corps Commendation, Navy and Marine Corps Achievement and Humanitarian Service medals, two Battle “E” awards, and a Surface Warfare qualification.

Navy Veteran

Besides traditional braces, Dr. G also has training in:

– Cleft lip/palate treatment
– Clear Aligners
– Surgical orthodontics
– Lingual orthodontics
– Orofacial pain
– TMJ treatment
– Habit appliances

Now comfortably adjusted to civilian life, Dr. G brings his far-ranging orthodontics expertise back to his hometown. He’s an active member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, past President of the Kern County Dental Society, and member of the American Association of Orthodontists.

Dr. G

Father, Surfer, Musician and Orthodontist

With a master’s degree in oral biology, he’s lectured for the American Association of Orthodontists and is the first orthodontist in the world to provide completely in-office custom digital prescription braces.

Outside of work, Dr. G enjoys hanging out with his wife Sarah, who is a 4th grade teacher, and their kids Giovanni and Bella. He pretends to be a pilot and a surfer, and sometimes moonlights as a fill-in bass guitar player for bands around town.

An awarded Navy veteran and international orthodontics expert (even if he can’t play most of those guitars hanging in his office very well), Dr. G is here to make Bakersfield smile.

A Place You’ll Enjoy Visiting, Designed with You in Mind

We know your orthodontics appointment isn’t the highlight of your week, but we’ve tried to make our office a place you’ll enjoy visiting. Convenient, clean, and comfortable, think of it as a mini vacation from the humdrum craziness of your day. 

Our office is a fun, relaxing place, but we know some kids and adults need more privacy, so we have a private treatment room for anyone who wants a quiet getaway.

Atmosphere isn’t everything, so we’ve also fitted our office with the best tech money can buy. In our 3D printing lab, we create dental replicas with just a simple scan—no more sticky, uncomfortable dental impressions! We’re one of only a few offices in the nation that uses this technology.

The Latest Technology,
Customized Just For You

You and your family deserve the very best. That’s why we use nothing but the latest and greatest technology to treat everyone who walks through our doors. For one thing, we’ve eliminated impressions—never again will you or your kids have to suffer through a mouth full of gooey dental mold. Nor do we use fragile plaster casts that will break in seconds. Instead, we use 3D scanning and printing technology to make your visit more comfortable.

Speaking of technology, this is the 21st century and braces need to get with the picture. That’s why we offer modernized solutions like InBrace lingual braces, which are worn on the inside of the teeth so they’re not visible. In fact, we’re the only office in Kern county to offer InBrace. Another great option is Stride by KLOwen: custom-made braces that fit better and shorten treatment time to nearly half that of traditional braces. This means fewer appointments and less pain—a result we’re definitely in favor of!

We don’t believe in forcing a fit. Instead, we customize each treatment option for the patient. Our office is a 100% custom shop where you can find all the personalized tools you need to perfect your special smile.

An Office That Gives Back, Helping the Community Smile, too

A former Navy veteran, Dr. G is committed to caring for veterans and their families. As a service to the community, OrthoArts offers free braces for children of Purple Heart recipients in Kern County.

Words From Our Patients

Dr. G is great! Everyone is so welcoming and kind! I have very sensitive teeth and gums, so going to the dentist or orthodontist in this case, is not my favorite place to be; however, Dr. G & his assistants are very gentle, and made me feel at ease. I have had a very positive experience. I highly recommend OrthoArts!
