Dr. Rebecca Baker
Dr. Rebecca Baker, mother of Jax, (love of her life and her most prized role) is a graduate of Leslie County High School, Cumberland College, and the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. She started her practice in 2003 after graduating with a Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree.
Rebecca’s vision was to establish a private practice in the community without corporate influence. Rebecca started her practice from scratch, dedicating many months deciding what to name her practice. She needed a name that would describe how her practice would be able to focus on the family using today’s modern advancements in dentistry. Hence, Today’s Family Dentistry was created.
The foundation of her practice was built on the principle of family in every aspect. This included building the practice literally from the ground up. Rebecca and her father, Jerry, constructed the office and her mother, Betty, worked as her very first office manager, making this the true meaning of family practice.
As her practice grew from 2 operatories to 7, private ownership allowed her to select the most experienced, qualified, expertly trained, caring team to work alongside her. This ensured that her and her team would perform modern dental services to the community with the compassion everyone deserves.
Her compassion for others goes beyond the chair and her practice. Rebecca’s parents raised her with the belief that there is no greater service than serving those around you. Using those same principles while raising her son Jax, she is very passionate about giving back to her community. Rebecca is very involved in many charitable associations, as well as self-organized services that have personal meaning for her.
Dr. Baker is a member of the Bluegrass Dental Society, Kentucky Dental Association, American Dental Association, and our practice is an Accredited Business with the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating. Dr. Baker is a volunteer faculty at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Baker also serves on the Board for Dental Assisting at Bluegrass Technical College.
