Dr. Natalie Baker is a Board-Certified Prosthodontist. She specializes in the replacement and repair of missing teeth, and offers her patients unique solutions that only a specialist can provide. She also has an advanced degree in sedation dentistry offering the apprehensive patient and busy executive the option of having their work done in as little as one visit. She is well-versed in all phases of implants, surgery and teeth restorations. Her additional three years of advanced training in prosthodontics has given her the training and skill to provide complex dental treatment for her patients with superior esthetic results.
Dr. Baker was born in Rye, New York and received her dental degree from New Jersey Dental School. Prior to receiving her DMD degree, Dr. Baker earned a BA from Washington University in St. Louis, where she majored in Spanish and minored in Art. Since dentistry is both an art and a science, her background led her to Prosthodontics, which deals with high quality healthcare providing exceptional cosmetic results.
Dr. Baker’s work experience includes ClearChoice and Eon Dental Centers that specializes in All-On-4 permanent dental solutions and bridges for those patients who have missing teeth, poor cosmetics or unsatisfactory ill-fitting dentures.
While receiving her Certificate in Advanced Prosthodontics at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Dr. Baker completed a Master of Science degree for her research of a novel Zirconia implant surface. She was also awarded the Granger Pruden Award from the Northeastern Gnathological Society, as well as awards from the American College of Prosthodontists and the American Prosthodontic Society, for her research. She has been invited to present her research at the American Prosthodontic Society, Academy of Prosthodontics, and Northeastern Gnathological Society meetings.
Dr. Baker has successfully passed an extensive written and clinical examination to achieve board-certification in her specialty, and is therefore regarded as one of the most highly trained restorative dentists in the country.
In her spare time she enjoys photography, travel, and spending time with her family. She is proud to be back in New York working with her father, Dr. William Wolfson.
