Dr. Mark Baker was born in Finland and moved to the states as a child, growing up in Sacramento. Going into oral surgery was an obvious choice for Dr. Baker — he always knew that he wanted to heal people and genuinely loves performing surgery. A board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Baker is always thrilled to work with the people of southeast Idaho, honored to treat generations of local families he has known for the many years he has been with Oral Surgery Specialists of Idaho. Dr. Baker would like his patients to know that the staff at our practice is second-to-none, and you will always leave our care healthier and happier.
Dr. Baker currently holds active memberships with the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the American Dental Association, and the Idaho Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
Dr. Baker graduated with honors from the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry.
The doctor performed his residency at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center in St. Louis.
In his spare time, Dr. Baker loves hunting, skiing, and spending time in the outdoors with his family. He is also on the board of Idaho Condor, a local organization that sends Idaho doctors and dentists to Peru with pre-med students for humanitarian work in indigenous villages. Whenever possible, the doctor also lends his time and talents to needy families in South America.
