Dr. Baker graduated with honors from the University of California, Berkeley in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science degree. He received his DMD degree from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, from which he graduated magna cum laude in 2008. Immediately following graduation from dental school, Dr. Baker began his specialty training in the Department of Endodontics at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston. He received his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Endodontics in June 2010.

While a student at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Baker was honored with the Student Leader Award by the American College of Dentists “for outstanding leadership, scholastic performance, and potential for impact on the profession of dentistry.” He was also inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honor fraternity. During commencement ceremonies at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Baker was presented with the Norman B. Nesbett Award “for excellence in the field of clinical dentistry,” and the Dr. Joel L. Dunsky Award, “for exceptional interest, aptitude and achievement in predoctoral endodontics.”

In July 2010, Dr. Baker, his wife Patricia and their two sons moved to Santa Fe to join the New Mexico Endodontic Center. As Patricia spent her teenage years in Los Alamos, where her parents still reside, they were delighted to be close to family and back in New Mexico.

Dr. Baker is active in local and national dental organizations including: the American Association of Endodontists, the American Dental Association, the New Mexico Dental Association, and the Santa Fe District Dental Society, for which he has served as President. He was proud to participate as a volunteer endodontist at New Mexico Mission of Mercy events in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, and Farmington. In January 2014, Dr. Baker became a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics after successfully completing a rigorous three-part examination
