Dr Kyle Baker
Kyle G. Baker, DMD
Dr. Kyle G. Baker is our orthodontist who for the past two years has been serving Bakersfield locals. Although he is a practicing orthodontist, his 5 years of experience working in general dentistry has given him a broad understanding of his patients’ general oral health. His goal as an orthodontist is “to treat each individual as I would if they were a member of my own family.” Dr. Baker is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO). He is also associated with the CDA, ADA, PCSO, and Kern Dental Society. He consistently strives to stay up-to-date and innovative in the orthodontic industry, and he goes above and beyond with continuing education hours and the training required by the state. After completing his undergrad at Southern Utah University, Dr. Baker went on to attend Nova Southeastern University to study dental science. He received his diploma in 2004 and was accepted by Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he became chief and graduated in 2012. Married for over 20 years, Dr. Baker has 3 wonderful children with his wife. His children are aged 18, 15, 12, and together they enjoy the outdoors. Dr. Baker also describes himself as an “avid” sports fan.
