Mr Baker has had a special interest in Orthodontics for over 25 years.
In that time he has gained vast experience in removable, functional and fixed appliance systems. His career started in 1985. On qualifying from the University of Dundee, he joined the Royal Navy as a dental officer and had reached the rank of Lieutenant Commander by the time he completed his commission in 1991. Upon entering general practice, he soon realised that he had not treated children for some time and so his interest began. He moved into a specialist practice one year later and the rest is history.
Mr Baker is a member of various professional organisations including The British Dental Association, The Faculty of General Dental Practice, The British Orthodontic Society, and The Oral Health Foundation. He completed work on an MSc in Orthodontics from the University of Warwick in 2019 and is an accredited Invisalign® provider
A true family man, he is a long suffering father of 4 children who ensure that spare time is only a thing of dreams! His caring, informal, welcoming and talkative(!) style has been appreciated by lots of apprehensive patients and he takes a special joy from helping young people to achieve the smiles they deserve. It has been said of Mr Baker that he always has time for people and he likes to spend time ensuring their treatment needs are fulfilled.
