Welcome Dr. Bauer To Our Team

dentist-melanie-bauerCosmetic dentist Dr. Carol Ford has worked in the field of dentistry for more than 30 years. While the focus of her practice in central Phoenix has been cosmetic and restorative dentistry, she understands that before a smile can be made more beautiful, it must be healthy.

To enhance this foundation of health for her clients, Dr. Ford has added a new associate dentist to the practice, Dr. Melanie Bauer, D.M.D., who will provide general dentistry services at the office on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Although she grew up in Denver, Dr. Bauer has roots as a Phoenix dentist. After graduating from Creighton University, she came to the Valley of the Sun to study biomedical science and dental medicine at Midwestern University. After obtaining her Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree, she volunteered to join the U.S. Navy and completed her residency at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego. Once her residency was complete, she was assigned to work for the Navy in Okinawa, Japan, for three years.

After her military service was completed, Dr. Bauer returned to the Valley in 2016 to work as a Phoenix dentist and serve as an adjunct faculty member at Midwestern University. She brings more than a decade of scientific and dental training to Dr. Ford’s practice, which is now known as Dr. Carol Ford & Associates.

Outside of work, Dr. Bauer enjoys outdoor activities with her husband, young son and her dog. She says she is glad to return to a city she considers home.

“Although my career has taken me around the world, I’m proud to call myself a Phoenix dentist now,” Dr. Bauer says. “I am excited to join Dr. Ford’s team, and I look forward to meeting new clients and their families and providing them with excellent care!”
