Baker Orthodontics Has The Shortest Waiting Times
In All Of Calhoun, GA & Provides The Most Advanced Technology Available
My name is Tonya Woodall Baker. I am a hometown girl who grew up in Calhoun, Georgia. I love this community and when I finished my orthodontic residency there was never any question that I would come back to Calhoun, open my orthodontic practice and raise my own family.
When I was a very little girl, I was blessed to have a wonderful, kind and caring general dentist. He and his hygienist always made me feel special at every visit. They would compliment me on my good grades in school or ask about the sports that I was involved in at the time. Bottom line, they always went out of their way to make this little girl feel important and cared about. That is why to this day our Mission Statement at Baker Orthodontics is “To improve the self worth of every patient by making them feel special at each visit.”
Our goal is not only to create a beautiful smile and healthy
occlusion, but we also want to boost each patient’s confidence and self esteem, so they are better prepared to pursue their own life dreams.
I did not realize that I had been bitten by the Orthodontic bug until my third year of dental school. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed general dentistry, but during that third year, I realized that general dentistry was never going to give me the same satisfaction. It is such a thrill seeing a patient's face light up when they see their smile for the first time after the braces have been removed.
It is so rewarding to see the transformation that takes place in many of my orthodontic patients. I love to hear the moms’ stories. Most start off by telling how shy their child was in class and how they always hid their smile behind their hands, but after treatment, they have a new confidence, they are vibrant and outgoing and the beautiful person that they always were has come to the surface. I love that I have the ability to help these kids put their best foot forward and take full advantage of all the opportunities ahead of them. I have witnessed the same thing with my adult patients. I can’t tell you how many have gotten engaged or been given
promotions while still in treatment. I have come to realize that it is not necessarily the end result that is the motivating factor, I think that it is just the realization that they are in the process of this transformation that gives them the added level of confidence. Of course, I have to add that I could not do this alone, I have a wonderful caring team that makes each transformation possible.
I look forward to meeting you!
All the best,
