Small but clean and friendly office. Excellent experience – price was less than quoted and we would go back to her. We arrived planning to spend about $1500 for our regular maintenance for twp of us, plus a root canal and crown for my husband. Turned out that hubby didn’t need a root canal (he was told to stop scrubbing his gums so hard with the Sonicare toothbrush) instead they applied a tooth-coloured sealer along the gum line at the sore tooth. For the 2 of us we paid less than $300 for cleanings, X-rays, exams and his treatment.

Due to complications that were compounded by expensive dentistry & maxillofacial surgery over the past 12+ years, I had been living in constant pain. I’m self employed and ineligible for Dental; a couple years back I had spent a large sum of money on dental treatment for my wife and me; it was outlandish. Dr. Shirley Baker came recommended by a close friend, so when the pain became unbearable, I made an appointment. I was very reluctant to venture into TJ. However, it was nothing like I expected. Dr. Shirley Baker and her staff were able to resolve the pain I had been suffering with for years. Thanks to her excellent work and post treatment care, the area is now pain-free. I never would have imagined this to be possible. Given her dedication and post-op phone calls, free follow-ups, and consultations with colleagues re complications of my jaw, I really think Dr. B cares more about her patients’ well-being and the administration of proper health care than about financial incentives. My second procedure was a root canal performed by their specialist. It was without a doubt the best root canal procedure I’ve had. The dentist was very skilled and thorough. I felt no post-procedure pain — a first for me. The crown looks aesthetically perfect; my wife couldn’t tell which tooth had the new crown. Every visit to Dr. Shirley Baker’s has been marked by professionalism, courtesy and dependability. This clinic is the only place I plan on going for dental anything. The office sets up the logistics that get you from the pedestrian border crossing to Dr. B’s office and back to the US border entry line, so I’ve never felt left in the lurch. This was my biggest concern before the first visit. I’m very lucky to have found Dr. B, and I cannot thank her & her staff enough for the wonderful medical care.

At first I was very sceptical about getting dental work done in Mexico but decided to go ahead and check it out. My experience was very good. Dr Baker runs a very professional office and the work was excellent. I had a root canal and crown done on one of my molars. It took two visits.

What a great experience! Although I have a lot of experience in Tijuana and Mexico this was my first time seeing a dentist down there. It went better than expected. Parking was easy and secure, staff was professional and helpful, facility was better than anything I’ve seen in San Diego, doctor was on time and most of all, i’m happy with the work she did. I had a cleaning, X-rays and 3 fillings done all on the same visit. I was in the chair for just under 2 hours and Dr. Shirley Baker did all of the work. I would recommend her to anyone i know. Only downside was she did not have the medical speed pass to avoid the border line. I was told they are working on getting them but didnt have them at the time. I think i paid about $180 for everything. Thanks Dr Baker.

Dr. Shirley Baker, I have just returned from my trip to Massachusetts and put away the temporary cement I’d been carrying around while wearing the temporary bridge. The new bridge looks and feels like my own teeth! I even tried it out on a piece of salt water taffy! I am very, very satisfied with the work that you performed and the service you provide. I will not hesitate to recommend you to any and all of my friends. Thank you Dr. Shirley Baker. :)

I was impressed by the professionalism of the entire staff
I was quoted and paid about $1700 total for my work done. This included a root canal, 3 crowns/build-ups, and some cavity work. I was impressed by the professionalism of the entire staff. Dr. Shirley Bakers’ chair side manner is unlike any dentist I’ve ever seen. She is friendly, warm, and comforting. She is up front about the work needed, rather than the mechanic style dentistry that I’ve experienced. I have been telling everyone I know to take the drive down to see her, because it is so worth it.

2 root canals and an upper bridge replacement ca
I had 2 root canals and a bridge replacement done and they did an excellent job! What would have costed me around $4500.00 in California at my dentist costs me $1580 here. The courtesy taxi shuttle from the border to the office is a very nice perk and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Dr. Shirley Baker is not only highly educated in all aspects of dentistry she is an artist in dental restoration! You should see my smile! My veneers look so natural and beautiful. I am extremely happy with Dr. Shirley Baker. She is very sensitive to your concerns, answers all your questions and creates the most wonderful beautiful smiles! Again, education you can get from any dentist, but true artistic qualities are hard to find! She is the best!!

Dr Baker is very personable and works hard to make sure you get great results. Also considering I have had over 6 dentist in my life, Dr Baker is the only one who has been able to numb my mouth properly so that it was a pain free visit. Most dentist do not know how to numb my mouth. She is the great at it.

Extractions, Surgical Extractions, Crowns & Veneer
We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Shirley Baker and her wonderful helper, Daniela. Dr. Shirley Baker is very efficient, accommodating, and uses the best & up-to-date materials. We had 6 days there and my husband got all of his teeth extracted and immediate dentures put in. Six of his teeth were fused to the bone so she had an Oral Surgeon come in and remove them. The cost was so much less than he would have paid here in Canada. I had six crowns replaced, one veneer replaced and 2 metal posts replaced with fibreglass posts. I like the fact that my new crowns have no metal in them (so now no more of the grey lines at the top of the crown after any gum recession) and they cost 1/2 of the price I would have paid in Canada. Will we go back to here? Of course!

I know there’s a multitude of reviews all saying how great Dr. Shirley Baker is and it can come off as a farce upon first sight. Please trust me, and many others, when I say Dr. Shirley Baker is unbelevable. Her attention to detail and honesty while staying calm and understanding is priceless. The work at her office is clean and fast – they don’t waste your time and money (unlike so many dentists in America). I never felt like I was being taken advantage of and lied to. I highly recommend her!

Very pleased with Dr Shirley Baker. I found her from your website – I dont usually do things like that! I travelled to San Diego and stayed there and walked across the border. It was hassle free and easy. I found her staff helpful and friendly. She speaks excellent English – completely fluent I never had any concerns in this regard. We discussed the treatment plan and I was happy with her professional approach and thoroughness. The dental office was clean and smart.

I got 5 crowns and 5plus fillings for a fraction of what it was quoted to me in the US. And I am happy with the results – I got Empress ceramic Imax crowns, a full dental exam at the start and a deep cleaning at the end. Would I recommend Dr Baker? – absolutely. She was very generous with her time and committed to good results in the long run.
