Joe Baughman, DDS

I love practicing dentistry because it allows me to participate in my patients’ well-being and overall health, while allowing them to live more confident lives. No two patients are alike, and each day offers exciting challenges that I look forward to meeting. My profession provides me with a lot of satisfaction, especially when a patient has been returned to an ideal state of health.
