Many treats can cause havoc for trick-or-treaters with braces, clear aligners or other orthodontic appliances.  These treats can potentially cause damage that may prolong treatment.  Learn about which treats are orthodontic-friendly and which ones should be avoided:

Dr. Baker LOVES to give nicknames, so we decided to turn the tables and ask people to suggest nicknames for HIM!! 

The winner was:

"Dr. Baker the Smile Maker"

2014 Cortland Canine Carnival

Finger Lakes Pay It Forward


Baker Orthodontics' first charitable initiative of our 100th year has hit the press! In conjunction with the Tompkins Chamber of Commerce, we are launching our inspiration: Finger Lakes Pay It Forward. Dr. Baker conceived the idea to encourage businesses to ask their customers what they need and then decide what they can do that will help customers financially during this rough economic period. For example, our practice offers complimentary consultations. 

For more information, please contact Practice Coordinator Colleen Powers or Dr. Baker. We think this program will be a wonderful charitable way to launch our 2014 centennial, "The Year of Giving".
