Anne Baker, DDS, MPH
Pursuing Candidacy for Board Certification, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
I am grateful every day to be a pediatric dentist! I believe I can change the lives of children and their families by delivering safe and compassionate care with excellence.
It is an honor to be able to advocate for children on a daily basis. I genuinely care about the overall health and wellbeing of all children. Getting to know the children in our practice, to support them, and to encourage them is what brings me the most joy! It is so much fun to create a fun and friendly environment where children and their families trust us as their dental home.
It is my hope that the children and families who come to our practice feel valued as they are served with kindness and compassion. The more children we can help become and remain healthy, the happier I will be. I not only care about the child in our chair today, but also about the adult they will become; I truly want a healthy future for all of our patients.
Education and Continuing Education
I graduated from the University of Georgia in 2011, where I was a member of the Honors Program and was captain of the football dance team, the Georgettes. I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from UNC School of Dentistry and completed my certificate in general dentistry at UNC’s General Practice Residency Program in 2016. I achieved my certificate of pediatric dentistry and Master of Public Health in Health Policy and Management in 2019.
In order to stay up-to-date with the scientific evidence, clinical techniques, and dental technology, it is imperative to stay engaged in learning throughout one’s career. Staying involved and curious means that I am never settling, but I am always pursuing clinical excellence. This is so important in order for us to offer the very best in patient care.

I am married to Nick Baker, whom I met in dental school at UNC. His a general dentist north of Raleigh, and he is also my best friend! We have a yellow lab, Lady, who keeps us laughing!
When I’m not at work, you can find me at the gym or playing outside with Nick and Lady. We are having a wonderful time building a community here in Raleigh and exploring the area! We love traveling, trying new things, and spending time with friends and family.
