Dr. Baer is eager to help those throughout New York City address their dental concerns and achieve optimal oral health.
Dr. Baer's passion for dentistry began at an early age when she worked at her father's office in downtown Chicago. Seeing the dramatic effect of smile makeovers on patients' confidence led her to pursue her Bachelor's of Science degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Dr. Baer completed her dental studies at Indiana University School of Dentistry in Indianapolis. While at Indiana, she received awards in dental implantology and served on the executive board of the Student Outreach Clinic, providing complementary care to underserved populations in Indianapolis.
After receiving her doctorate, Dr. Baer accepted a general practice residency position at Montefiore's prestigious Centennial Clinic in the Bronx. At Montefiore, she gained special instruction in dental implant restorations and complex prosthodontic cases while improving her skills as a general dentist. Inspired by her training, she pursued a second year of residency and became the chief resident during that time.
Dr. Baer is passionate about her patient's dental care as it relates to their overall health. She works with patients to identify and eliminate sources of dental problems to prevent them in the future. Through Dr. Baer's training, she treats patients with the most advanced care available, including dental implants, clear aligners, or other restorative interventions. Dr. Baer believes that a smile is the first thing you notice about a person and that everyone deserves to make a beautiful first impression.
Dr. Baer grew up in Chicago, Illinois, and now resides in Manhattan with her fiance and new kittens. In her spare time, she enjoys baking, working out, and exploring NYC — especially its restaurants, museums, and live events!
