Dr. Baker's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Baker "Beautiful smiles are in Dr. Baker's blood! "One of my earliest memories is of hanging out in Dad's dental office, and riding up and down in the chairs", he said. The Senior doctor, Guy Baker, completed his specialty training in orthodontics in 1968. His children, including Brad, grew up around the profession, so it was a natural fit for him to pursue the field of orthodontics himself, a few years later. After graduating from San Pasqual High School in Escondido, Dr. Brad attended Brigham Young University on two academic scholarships and earned a Bachelor's degree in Zoology. He received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at UCLA School of Dentistry and was involved in research in the department of orthodontics, doing early pioneering work in the use of dental implants as anchorage for orthodontic treatment. Dr. Baker completed a Hospital Dentistry Residency at the UC San Francisco School of Dentistry and acquired an excellent background in emergency dentistry and in the area of combined orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. Dr. Baker attended the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where he received advanced training and certification in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, earning a Master of Science degree in Oral Biology. In 1988, Dr. Baker joined his father and founder of Baker Orthodontics, Dr. Guy Baker, in his orthodontic practice in Escondido, where they had the great pleasure of practicing together for five years until his father's retirement. Dr. Baker places a high priority on keeping up with the latest research and technology in the field of orthodontics and bringing these innovations into his practice for the benefit of his patients."

What People Say About Dr. Bradford Baker, DDS
Dr. Baker and his staff were all extremely pleasant to work with. I am 42 and had a somewhat challenging tooth arrangement. My mouth is now aligned better than anyone expected!
