Dr. Catherine Baitinger, Dentist:
I was born and raised in New Jersey. I moved to Gainesville, Florida to attend University of Florida where I earned both my Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Nutritional Sciences and my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree, respectively, in the dual admissions program.
I am committed to a lifelong education in dentistry, and I have already completed over 50 hours of continuing education while in dental school. I received my Botox certification for management of orofacial pain and headaches. I am a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Association of Women Dentists, and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. I have traveled throughout the country to study and attend continuing education conferences where I have learned from cutting-edge leaders in dental science, materials, and technology.
Pursuing a profession in dentistry has been a lifelong dream. Beyond connecting with my patients and listening to what their overall goal is as a patient of Baylee, I am passionate about the transformation dentistry can have on them. My treatment goal is ensuring total patient comfort and relaxation while utilizing the most modern dental techniques and materials available.
As an avid sports fan, you can always strike up a conversation with me about Gator sports, baseball or golf. I also enjoy traveling the world and trying new food. So, if you have a good restaurant or golf course recommendation, please let me know! In my free time, I also enjoy running and visiting the theme parks, especially Disney. I have completed many races at Disney, including 4 marathons. Overall, I am ecstatic to join the team at Baylee Dental and will continue the tradition of clinical excellence and compassionate care.
