What Sets Us Apart

We are new school regarding care rendered, traditional in our core beliefs that everyone deserves the best we can offer, and proud of being able to combine those competing elements in one quality practice…. We are Baughman Orthodontics

and known for our values of experience, knowledge, integrity, ethics, and of course, quality care rendered in a friendly atmosphere. We have a passion for excellence!

The experienced team at Baughman Orthodontics provides highquality treatment individually designed to meet the needs of each patient. We offer our patients a positive, caring orthodontic experience that’s delivered with passion for what we do to help our patients achieve their orthodontic dream of a great smile and improved self-confidence. Our uniqueness is not about a magical appliance or technology, but rather about quality, patient-centered care rendered in a warm and friendly environment.

It’s all about you!

We want you to feel like you are the most important person in our day because, one at a time, you are! We strive to make you feel relaxed and happy to see us, and we reciprocate that feeling. We share your experiences, joys, and concerns of the moment, whatever they may be, like any family would.

We treat our patients with genuine concern and warmth, and they just know that this is a special place to receive their orthodontic treatment. We create friends of all of our patients and those relationships continue beyond their orthodontic experience. We believe patients and their families want to know how much you care before they care how much you know!

Meeting Your Expectations

We understand that people expect good care, and we work hard to exceed their expectations. We respect each person’s time as being important and see patients on time, which virtually eliminates their time waiting in the office at every visit.

Additionally, our goal is to finish treatment on time, to meet or exceed our original treatment time estimates. We track the patient’s progress at each visit and encourage him or her to retain our partnership in pursuit of our collective goals.

We are very efficient so as maintain everyone’s trust. We communicate regularly with the patient’s dentist to keep him or her informed of the patient’s progress, and feel this commitment on our part is appreciated by both our referring doctors and our patients’ families. We don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk!

Creating a Fun Environment

We hold ongoing contests to make our patients feel special, have fun, and celebrate something: holidays, seasons, birthdays, graduations. Our patients tell us that they look forward to seeing us each month, unlike some of their other healthcare providers. We constantly change our office seasonal decorations, to keep the place visually fresh and maintain our patients’ interest in coming to see us.

Supporting the Community

We support school projects and live and integrate within the Stockton community. Dr. Baughman serves on local boards of directors — for example, for the University of the Pacific and Rotary International — and he even volunteered 20 years in the local craniofacial anomalies clinic at the county hospital.
