At the Center for Implant Dentistry, Dr. Richard Casteen and staff strive to provide the highest level of dentistry. Experience matters to us, and you can be confident that our team has the knowledge and training to meet your expectations.

Our focus is total patient care – from start to finish, with special attention given to making our patients feel comfortable, informed, and well cared for.

TeethXpress is a stabilization solution that uses dental implants to create teeth that are completely fixed and not removable by the patient. All this is achieved on the same day that implants are placed.

Dr. Richard Casteen

Dr. Richard Casteen uses more than 28 years of surgical and prosthetic experience to rebuild mouths and is a Board Certified Implantologist through the American Board of Implantology (ABOI). He and his staff strive to create a cheerful environment, providing complete support throughout the treatment process.

Dr. Casteen works with anesthesiologists and uses in-house dental technicians to create final restorations and prosthetics.

Whether it is to replace a single tooth, develop a new smile, or remove remaining teeth and start over, patients are evaluated with experience and the latest diagnostic technology available, including CT scan imaging.

Typical patients suffer from trauma, bone deficiencies, failed root canals, bulimia, xerostomia, drug addiction, and occlusal disease.  No matter what the condition presents, patients can be assured that all treatment options will be discussed prior to initiating care, as well as discussion of risks and benefits.

Dr. Casteen works principally out of Bakersfield and lives locally in Santa Ynez Valley.
