Our History

Dr. Baker opened the office in 2005 after practicing in other areas of Calgary for 5 years. During that time he learned that he wanted to build a small family centred dental practice where patients felt comfortable seeing the same dentist and staff consistently. Many dental offices in Calgary have become large production oriented businesses and Dr. Baker feels it is important for dental care to be driven by health based needs, rather than money or insurance coverage.

Dr. Neal Baker

Dentist

Dr. Baker was born and raised in Calgary, and returned home to practice after completing his dental degree at the University of Alberta in 2000. He opened Cranston Dental Centre in 2005 and has been serving the wonderful group of families in the south since then. Dr. Baker’s focus is on dentistry for the whole family and loves seeing patients of all ages. He has continued his dental education and training through a wide variety of seminars and courses including training at the Las Vegas Institute and he is certified in Invisalign orthodontic treatment. When he is not at the office, he can be found cycling, skiing or skating with his wife and two daughters, or trying to lower his handicap on the golf course.
