Meet the Team

We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you. Welcome to Baughman Orthodontics!



Hi, my name is Carol. I have been the office manager of the practice since it opened. Our patients are the best. It is always a pleasure to help everyone with any questions they may have. My biggest job is keeping the office in top working order so the rest of the team can do their jobs. Dr. Baughman loves what he does and is an outstanding orthodontist. Orthodontics changes people’s lives and I am proud to be a part of such a talented team.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy reading, going to plays and the symphony, and traveling.



Hi, my name is Leslie. I am a registered dental assistant and help Dr. Baughman chairside to make beautiful smiles. I have been working with Dr. Baughman since 1989, but have been in the field of orthodontics since 1984. You can see we make a great team. He is an accomplished doctor and is passionate about delivering quality care. I enjoy making a difference in our patients’ lives.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, taking day trips, and keeping tabs on my children who are in their early 20s. I also enjoy home improvement projects and after-work cocktails with my terrific neighbors!



Hi, my name is Leslie. I am a registered dental assistant for the team. I am the second Leslie to join the office: the Leslie with the long hair. I have been in orthodontics forever and have been working with Dr. Baughman since 2005. He is a great doctor, and you will enjoy receiving your orthodontic treatment here. I love what I do. I especially enjoy hearing about all of our patients’ activities and finding out what great people they are outside our office.

When I’m not in the office, I spend time with my husband and two daughters. My younger daughter participates in competitive softball, which keeps me busy on weekends. My older daughter is enjoying college life at the University of the Pacific here in Stockton. I love being a mom!



Hi, my name is Barbara. I joined Dr. Baughman’s team in 1999 as the appointment secretary. I help coordinate our schedule in a manner that benefits the families and helps keep the office organized. It is a pleasure getting to know all of our patients and watching our young patients grow up. I look forward to meeting our new patients and helping them realize their orthodontic dreams.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two grown daughters, their husbands, and my grandchildren.



Hi, my name is Kira. I am a former patient of Dr. Baughman and a student at Delta College. I already have an AA degree and am working toward additional AS degrees. I look forward to meeting and helping our patients throughout their orthodontic experience. You have made a great decision to seek your orthodontic care in our practice!

I am married and own a home with my husband and two cats.
