Meet Dr. Baird
Dr. Baird and her Team would like to thank you for visiting our website. We can’t wait to meet you in person. At Baird Orthodontics, our passion is your beautiful smile.
Dr. Marta Baird is a Board Certified Orthodontist specializing in the orthodontic treatment of children, teens and adults. Only 1 in 3 orthodontists is board certified. She has extensive training in Invisalign, traditional braces, clear ceramic braces and other treatment techniques. She lives in Pleasanton just a few minutes away from her practice.
Dr. Baird is a native of the Tri-Valley and grew up in Tracy. She attended the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA, for her undergraduate degree. She then attended the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco, CA, where she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree.
After spending time as a general dentist in a private practice and also teaching at the UoP Dental School she pursued her dream to become an orthodontist. Dr. Baird undertook an additional 27 months of training, also at UOP, to complete her residency in Orthodontics and earned a Masters of Science in Dentistry and a Certificate in Orthodontics. She was also the recipient of the Arthur A. Dugoni Excellence in Research and Scholarly Activities Award.
In recent years there have been a number of changes in the field of Orthodontics. These changes allow orthodontists to move teeth more efficiently, with less discomfort and less time in treatment. Dr. Baird loves technology and embraces it in her practice. She uses these new advancements to help improve her patients’ overall experience. Since children are often anxious about impressions, Dr. Baird uses digital scans rather than invasive impressions. These digital scans allow for a much more accurate fit of a patients braces, retainers or Invisalign.
All of Dr. Baird’s patient records are digital and allow Dr. Baird to better communicate with the patient, their regular dentist, and other medical professionals who need to be involved with any patient treatment.
Dr. Marta Baird enjoys spending time with her husband and their daughter in Pleasanton: hiking the ridge and enjoying downtown.
