Dr. Dorothy Baker

Dr. Dorothy Baker is a native of the Lowcountry and is very excited to have a pediatric dental practice in her home town!

She received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from The College of Charleston, and then obtained a degree of dentistry at MUSC College of Dental Medicine in 2002. After practicing general dentistry for three years, she received her Pediatric Dental Specialty license from The Children’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado in 2007. She is trained in conscious sedation, pediatric oral and maxillofacial trauma, general anesthesia and patients with special medical conditions. She is a member of the Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Cleft-Palate Craniofacial Association, Charleston Dental Society and the Greater Summerville Dorchester Chamber of Commerce.

Dr. Baker was the past Dental Director at the Coastal Center, Department of Disabilities and Special Needs and continues to provide dental care to special needs individuals. She serves on faculty at the MUSC College of Dental Medicine and supervised dental student rotation through the facility. She feels strongly in promoting training awareness for student dentists in both pediatric dentistry and individuals with special health care needs.

Dr. Baker lives in Summerville with her son Josh and daughter Emma, who are the light of her life. She enjoys playing at the beach, hiking, and spending time with friends and family. She feels very thankful that God has blessed her with the ability to practice in the Lowcountry, and seeks to glorify Him through the care she provides all of her patient families.

My name is W. Asher Wright, and I am a General Dentist who just retired from the USAF (20yrs). I am extremely excited to join the team of Summerville Pediatric Dentistry. I am thrilled to have an opportunity to see kids of all ages while maintaining an enthusiastic approach to adults with same-day crowns, bridges, and esthetics associated with the restoration of adult dentition.   I will be seeing moms, dads, and their children along with Dr. Dorothy Baker here in Summerville and on a limited basis in Walterboro.  

I have been married for 22yrs and we have five daughters.  My mother and father are originally from Summerville/North Charleston area.  I recently moved back in Aug 2021 during my retirement from the Air Force.  I enjoy doing what my wife tells me, playing video games in my free time, and I am a pseudo artist.  I like to draw many various subjects with a pencil and pen. While overseas in the Air Force, I learned to speak and write rudimentary level Japanese.  I can order off a menu and get around town if needed.
