The goal of an early orthodontic evaluation is to provide each patient with the most appropriate treatment at the most optimum time. At Baker Orthodontics, we try to make each child comfortable with our kid-friendly office and staff. Our office is decorated with a safari theme and we have a PlayStation 3 and an iPad with games for kids to play while they wait.
We offer several orthodontic treatments to suit the unique need of our patients.
In-Ovation® self-ligating system does away with the elastics and ties of traditional braces. Instead, the brackets use free-sliding technology that puts less pressure on teeth.
Adults can take advantage of Invisalign®- the clear, removable aligner system.
Lingual appliances give adults and teens a completely customized experience with braces applied to the back of the teeth. They are invisible and deliver amazing results.

Education and Experience
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.
