Dr. Baik earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine in 1991. He served his General Practice Residency at the Jacobi Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1992. Dr. Baik started his own practice in New York City in 1994 and opened an additional practice in Ridgewood, NJ in 1997. He has continued to pursue excellence in advanced dental technology by participating in numerous continuing education courses for the last 20 years. These include certified training on Dental Implantology from the Bicon Implant Institute in 2002, GP Orthodontics from the Tip-Edge Orthodontic System from 2002 to 2004, and Invisalign certification since 2008.
After 23 years of pouring all of his passion and energy into his practice in New York and New Jersey, Dr. Baik decided to relocate to San Diego to be near his extended family members. It was a difficult decision to leave his NY and NJ practices, as most of his longtime loyal patients have become like family to him. However, he was able to find other dentists who have a similar philosophy and the same passion for care, so he was able to entrust his patients to them.
On August 31st 2015 Dr. Baik took over Dr. Twichel’s 41 years of dental practice in Santee, California.
