MEET DR. BAKER
Dr. Baker is a native of Washington state and a graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry . He was born in Walla Walla and earned a Bachelor of Science in Plant Genetics from Brigham Young University prior to returning to his home state for dental school. During their years in Seattle, Dr. Baker fell in love with the rain, and his wife, Sarah, fell in love with the city. They chose to make Seattle their home and love raising their three children here. Establishing long-term relationships with his patients and working with a great team are two of the things Dr. Baker enjoys most about his job. When he is not working, Dr. Baker loves playing rugby, camping with his family, listening to music, and playing his didgeridoo.
As a dentist, Dr. Baker makes continuing education in the latest dental research a priority. His philosophy is that the best dental health is achieved when the dentist is educated in current research and maintains an ongoing relationship with each patient. He looks forward to working together with you to achieve and maintain a healthy smile.
Dr. Baker is a member of the Seattle King County Dental Society, the Washington State Dental Association, and the American Dental Association. He also serves as an Affiliate Faculty member at the University of Washington School of Dentistry in the emergency clinic when he is not working in his downtown practice.
MEET DR. KAUFFMAN
Dr. Kauffman was raised in the rolling green farmlands of rural Pennsylvania where her father practiced dentistry, and her mother dental hygiene. After graduating from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science in Plant Biology and spending time in India as a Fulbright Scholar studying medicine and dentistry, she knew that she wanted to follow in her parents’ footsteps and become a dentist. She graduated from The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine with honors and trained at The Albert Einstein Medical Center as a general practice resident. Her spouse, a physician who graduated from the University of Washington’s fellowship program and specializes in fighting infectious diseases, brought Dr. Kauffman to the Pacific Northwest where she fell in love with year round gardening, the islands so close to Seattle, and the diversity of the city.
Dr. Kauffman loves practicing dentistry, mostly because she enjoys the combination of science, art, and building relationships with both her team and her patients. She is a dedicated practitioner, an avid listener, and truly cares about her patients’ well being. She is a member of the Seattle King County Dental Society and Washington State Dental Association.
When Dr. Kauffman is not practicing dentistry, she loves spending as much time as possible with her twin infant girls. She looks forward to introducing them to cycling, swimming, and guitar, some of Dr. Kauffman’s passions, and also secretly hopes that one (or both) may find themselves in the family profession.
