About David Baker
I graduated from Liverpool Dental School with Honours in 2004 having won the Malcolm Foster Medal for an Endodontic Elective, the Srivastava Prize and the General Dental Council Prize for Professionalism. I undertook General Professional Training and worked both in General Practice and then as a Senior House Officer in Dental Surgery at Liverpool Dental Hospital. I then joined a Practice in St Helens where I worked for 7 years. Up until fairly recently I taught part time at UCLAN Dental School and I have been involved in teaching to post graduate Dental Students. I completed my Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2011. I was lucky enough to spend some time in America learning from some of the world's best root canal specialists. In 2013 I completed my Masters Degree in Endodontology (Root Canal Treatment) having achieved Distinctions in the first two years including Distinction for my presented Clinical Cases and a Merit for my dissertation. I currently receive referrals from local Dentists for Root Canal Treatment, which is all carried out under a Microscope utilising the latest and most effective techniques. I enjoy the challenges of Root Canal Treatment and providing this care in a relaxed and patient friendly way. In 2014 I was invited to Maillefer Dentsply in Switzerland where I became a certified Trainer for Denstply to teach other Dentists root canal treatment. I have also recently been asked to assist with Teaching Endodontics on a very special course but for now it is quite top secret!! In December 2014 I was a Finalist in the FMC Dentistry Awards for the Best Young Dentist in the UK. I joined Hob Hey Dental Centre in August 2013. Away from teeth I live in Newton-Le-Willows with my Wife Emma, who is also a Dentist, and our 2 little girls Heidi (4) and Daisy (1). When I get chance I enjoy football, boxing and Top Gear. I work Monday to Thursday.

i have a fear of dentist and find just walking in makes me feel ill but the staff are really friendly and make me feel at ease My dentist is great always tells me what he going to do and does not rush me and i feel i can trust him he even makes me laugh .The hygienist is good and all the dental nurses are kind the whole practice is a five star surgery i have recommend them to my friends and family
I have been with this practice for many years. David Baker is relatively new to the practice and I was concerned about a lost in service and care when the previous dentist retired. However I did not need to worry and the service has continued the very high standard of professionalism and caring approach which I have appreciated over the years. Visits to the dentist and the hygienists do not cause anxiety as I know I will be well looked after.
I actually find visiting the dentist fun! The staff are friendly & helpful & make you feel you are important to them. David Baker has a lovely nature & I feel completely at ease with him. He always checks during the treatment that I am all right. My visits are very pleasant & I wouldn't go anywhere else.
I enjoy going to the dentist! Not a statement that I could ever imagine saying.
I've had some horrendous experiences with dentists previously, but Hob Hey have restored my faith! The receptionists are absolutely lovely, always cheerful and nothing is ever too much bother. Mr Baker is great, very chatty and communicates brilliantly showing as much information as he can - I would highly recommend the practice and couldn't ask for a better service. I love the fact I get text and email appointment reminders, it makes everything much easier.
I have been with this Dental Practice for a long time.My dentist retired last year and I was worried when I. knew I would be getting a new one.I need not have had any such fears as Dr Baker has proved to be an excellent replacement.He has a lovely way of putting you at ease and explains carefully what he is doing..He,also has a very good dental hygienist,Julie who spends time backing up what he says about taking care of your teeth and gums..
We've been with this practice for many years. David Baker is relatively new to the practice but has continued the very high standard of professionalism and caring approach which we have appreciated over the years. Visits to the dentist (and even to the hygenists!) do not cause anxiety as we know we will be well looked after.
