Summary

Dr. Baker is a California native. He attended high school in Escondido, where his father, Dr. Guy Baker, practiced orthodontics. In fact, after receiving his education, he had the privilege of practicing with his father for five years, until the senior Dr. Baker retired.

Completed his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah than obtained his MS at University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA and earned his Dental degree from University of California, Los Angeles

Dr. Baker loves the practice of orthodontics. He has over 30 years of experience in orthodontics, and for him It is the perfect blend of art, science, and service. He loves working with people of all ages, and one of his greatest joys is helping people to make improvements in their smiles, and in their lives. He is passionate about achieving not only a beautiful, functional smile, but also great facial esthetics.

Dr. Baker has always had a fascination with the science of teeth and supporting bone. After receiving his DDS degree, he completed a hospital residency which was oriented toward surgery; particularly of the jaws. His Master’s thesis, which he received in conjunction with his orthodontic residency, focused on the interaction of chewing force and bone metabolism. He was also involved in some of the pioneering work in the use of dental implants as orthodontic anchorage.

Dr. Baker and his lovely wife, Angie, have three adult children, who are currently pursuing college education and missionary service. In his spare time, he does humanitarian dental work, serves as a Boy Scout leader, and enjoys hiking, camping, and water sports.

I was introduced to this dental group two years ago and we have been extremely pleased with all aspects of their services from routine cleanings to tooth infections and extractions. Everyone is always friendly and helpful and answers all our questions. Unlike many dentists in the area they do not up-charge so their fees are reasonable. I very highly recommend this dental group!

My family and I have been patients at the practice for 20+ years. The customer service is top notch, from the front office to the dentists. I always know I am in the best hands, no matter who I schedule a cleaning with. The addition of the orthodontist made the practice complete. It is a forward thinking practice with roots in family values.

LaCosta Dental Group has been our family dentist for over 35 years. I feel fortunate to have found them when we first moved to North County. We have received nothing but professional and personal service from the entire staff.
