We are very proud to be able to sponsor such a great event for the 5th graders at Woodburn Elementary School in Camas. This is such a wonderful movie and can really help spread awareness of craniofacial syndromes. When Dr.Baker and his wife saw the permission slip their daughter brought home they instantly knew this was something they wanted to help with. That evening they emailed their daughter's teacher who immediately help organize and let all the 5th grade classes, teachers, students and parents know that Baker Orthodontics would be making sure every single 5th grader had a seat and opportunity to see the movie Wonder. Dr.Baker has treated children with cleft-palate and craniofacial syndromes like the ones seen in the movie since 2003 and is very passionate about helping children. He is part of the Portland Shriners Hospital Cleft-Palate & Craniofacial Team and continues to help wherever he can in the community. THANK YOU WOODBURN!! WHAT A GREAT EVENT!

To help give children the most optimal outcome when it comes to facial growth, their bite, and a healthy, beautiful smile, October is National Orthodontic Health Month! This means trying to spread awareness of having your child's facial growth and tooth eruption checked by an orthodontist no later than age 7.
Dr. David Baker of Baker Orthodontics prefers to see children around age 3-5 to asses their facial growth, breathing/airway, and prepare parents with an idea of what to expect. This also helps encourage the children to look forward to their visits at Dr.Baker's office as they are very friendly, professional, and with Dr.Baker's unique training in cranio-facial orthodontics, you can guarantee Dr.Baker will be able to answer all your questions.
Give us a call to schedule your child's complimentary consultation at either of our convenient office locations: Portland Office 503-292-9192 or our Vancouver/Camas Office 360-891-6500. We look forward to meeting you!

A question I hear every day is "When will my child's baby tooth fall out?" This is an excellent chart to refer to as a guideline of when you can expect to see adult teeth starting to emerge.
Some children loose and gain teeth earlier or later than others, however, it is important to keep track of your child's development because a delay can be a signal that a tooth is erupting on the wrong path or possibly stuck (impacted) due to crowding or a jaw imbalance. This is why Dr. David Baker at Baker Orthodontics like to see children around the ages of 3-5 so that he can start assessing your child's growth and development and help prevent any issues that may otherwise occur if not monitored.
Dr.Baker offers complimentary consultations for any age. Give us a call today and we can help your child ensure they will have the best chance possible for a healthy, beautiful smile! Portland Office: 503-292-9192 Vancouver Office: 360-891-6500
