Feel Good

A Dentist You
Can Trust

Dr. Krauss takes the same approach in his cosmetic dental practice that he does with his wife and six kids: it’s about quality time.



From the moment you enter the doors of Bakersfield Smile Design, you’ll be greeted by a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The inviting smiles of the Bakersfield Smile Design staff are only outweighed by those of Dr. Ken’s adoring patients that cover the wall, shelves, and photo albums in seemingly innumerable quantities. Yes, it won’t take long to sink in that you have finally found a cosmetic and general family dentist who knows that being a Bakersfield dentist is more than just a trade or career, its an opportunity to bring out the best smile in everyone he meets.

What can a new smile do for you?

Thank You Dr. Krauss! I am amazed every time I look in the mirror. I just love my teeth and smile! I never smiled before without looking down or feeling self conscious . . .. I had no idea they could possibly turn out this AMAZING and FLAW­LESS!!! This man is BRILLIANT, a true GENIUS and artist! You can not get this kind of professional standard anywhere in Beverly Hills or the OC. Life changing!

The Smile Design family was warm and welcoming from the moment I walked through the door. They genuinely care about how I am feeling and have been nothing but kind, understanding, and patient with me. The experience that I have had here is won­derful and I would recommend them to ev­erybody looking to have a smile and an experi­ence that is truly life changing.
