Tonya Woodall Baker, D.M.D., P.C.
Dr. Tonya Woodall Baker began dreaming of becoming a dentist at the age of 16. After graduating as valedictorian of the class, of 1984 from Calhoun High School she continued to work hard to make those dreams become a reality. Dr. Baker attended Mercer University in Atlanta before being accepted to the dental program at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. It was in her junior year of dental school that she realized her passion was in orthodontics. She earned her Doctorate of Medical Dentistry in 1990, graduating at the top of her class. She continued her studies at MCG and completed her Orthodontic Specialty training in 1992. It was then time to put all that she had learned into action. She couldn’t wait to come back to Calhoun to give back to the community that had given her so much. She has been providing excellent orthodontic care while creating smiles, boosting self-confidence and self-esteem in patients of all ages since 1992.

She is also active in several study clubs and attends continuing education classes throughout the year.
Aside from being renown as both a business woman and as an orthodontist, Dr. Baker is known for her community involvement; she is an active board member of the Adult Literacy Council and she serves as a chairperson of the Family Literacy Committee. She is a past board member of the United Way and is a proud supporter of both academics and athletics at her alumnus, Calhoun City Schools, as well as the other local school systems.
On a more personal level, she and her family attend East Calhoun Church of God. She is a firm believer that God has always been there opening just the right doors leading her to where she is today-including the field of orthodontics.
