Welcome to Our Practice!



Welcome to the Orthodontic Group of the Finger Lakes – serving the community since 1914! With locations conveniently located in Ithaca, Cortland, and Watkins Glen , New York and one office in the Netherlands Antilles, we are able to better meet the orthodontic needs of all our patients. 

Early treatment intervention by an orthodontist can help.  In the absence of treatment, tooth decay, tooth loss and gum disease are possible results. The increased cost of dental care for these problems may far exceed the cost of orthodontic care for now.

Dr. Baker and the staff of the Orthodontic Group of the Finger Lakes look forward to getting to know you and seeing you smile!
