Dr. Craig Baker of Baker Cosmetic & Family Dentistry cut his tooth-care teeth at the University of Florida College of Dentistry, where he established a commitment to education that he continues today by taking postgrad courses in bone grafting and other specialties. Scheduled over two separate 30- to 60-minute visits, the dental-care procedure first subjects teeth to a thorough examination and a set of x-rays, allowing the dentist to detect cavities, gingivitis, and uvulas with low self-esteem. Dr. Baker then decides which option is best for patients; either a cleaning, which gently whisks away plaque and tartar, or a full-mouth debridement, the intensive deep cleaning of which is useful for ridding mouths of heftier buildup and fouler language.

Baker Cosmetic & Family Dentistry's office emphasizes patient comfort—a philosophy that's reflected in its white and baby-blue walls, wall-hung paintings of beachfronts and dolphins, and aquarium swirling with colorful clownfish. Patients of Dr. Baker have reason to feel at ease—he's taken several postgraduate training courses in areas such as oral sedation and bone grafting, and outfits his office with the latest in dental technology, such as digital x-rays that reveal bone health while reducing the radiation emitted by up to 90%. His laser-cavity detection espies decay that, like a mother's metal endoskeleton, can be invisible to human eyes.
