Meet Dr. Kevin Kobliska
“Dentistry has always had a negative connotation associated with it. Many people have either had bad experiences in the past or are just plain frightened of getting in the dental chair. I became a dentist because I wanted to change that. I want to make going to the dentist an enjoyable experience.”
A native of Bakersfield, Dr. Kobliska received his undergraduate degree from Chapman University in Orange County. He earned his doctor of dental medicine (DMD) degree from Western University of Health Sciences. Dr. Kobliska regularly participates in continuing education, emphasizing cosmetic, restorative, and CAD/CAM dentistry.
After earning his DMD degree, returning to Bakersfield to practice dentistry was an easy decision for Dr. Kobliska. He says, “Bakersfield has given me a lot of opportunities throughout the years, which is why I thought it would be important to return after dental school, give back, and serve the community through quality dental care.”
