CHRIS BAKER DDS, FAGD
Dr. Chris Baker, a native of Weatherford, Texas, earned his BS degree from Baylor University in 2004 and dental degree in 2009 from the University of Texas – Houston, School of Dentistry.
Ultimately, his commitment to continuing education and clinical excellence led him to complete the Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. This state-of-the-art academic program advanced Dr. Baker’s clinical experiences with general dentistry, IV and oral sedation, implantology, wisdom teeth removal, periodontal surgery, and endodontics.
Now, as a Rockwall dentist, Dr. Baker is an active member of the North Texas Dental Society and the Texas Academy of General Dentistry.
In 2015, Dr. Baker earned his Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. Earning Fellowship takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation. Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows. When you see a dentist with FAGD after their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Fellows practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year — not every dentist does this.
To become an AGD Fellow, a dentist must:
Complete over 500 credit hours of CE.
Earn 350 of those 500 credits in live courses.
Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.
"Since moving here from Indiana, we have had a hard time finding medical professionals that we really like and feel comfortable with, but we feel like we hit the jackpot when we found Dr. Baker. He’s great with kids and adults and is very personable, professional, and just plain smart! The whole family has been going to him for a couple of years now, and we could not be happier with our choice. The office and staff are great as well!"
