Dr. Joshua Baum
Dr. Baum has been setting the standard in outstanding orthodontic care in our area since 2004, creating thousands of healthy smiles for both children and adults. Dr. Baum’s extensive educational background, coupled with his vast experience and expertise, has resulted in him being recognized as an esteemed member of the orthodontic community. Dr. Baum maintains memberships in prestigious professional organizations such as the American Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontists.
Born in North Haven, Dr. Baum has spent most of his life in Connecticut. Dr. Baum received his Bachelor of Science degree from Tufts University in Boston. He then went on to earn his Doctor of Medical Dentistry at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, and ultimately he received his Orthodontic Certificate and a Master’s of Science at the University of Buffalo.
Dr. Baum and his wife, Shana, have two boys who are their absolute and cherished pride and joy. He, his wife, and his staff are all entrenched and active supporters of the community. Dr. Baum is an avid sports fan and participant. You can catch him in the winter at the hockey rinks with his sons or out in the water or on a tennis court in the summer. He is a huge hockey and football fan and loves all things Boston. As a big Red Sox supporter, he often finds himself in the minority surrounded by Yankees fans at the office, including most of the staff! Although he receives great enjoyment from his work, clearly the most rewarding part of the day are his interactions with his patients and seeing their smiles grow.
