Dr. Baek graduated Magna Cum Laude from SUNY Dental in Buffalo and was accepted into the periodontal specialty program at Columbia University where he trained to provide dental implants and deliver the highest level of periodontal care to his patients. Born of Korean parents in Brooklyn, he and his family soon moved to Argentina. As a result he is totally fluent in English, Spanish and Korean! He studied in Argentina where he did his General Practice Residency at the Bernardino Rivadavia Hospital, and then attended school in both Buffalo and New York City before deciding to call Atlanta, Georgia his home. In his spare time he likes to play golf and soccer, and relaxes with his wife Kelly and their daughter Emily. Pastimes include sitting down with a good book or on a river bank waiting for the fish to bite. Dr. Baek is a member of the American Academy of Periodontology, the American Dental Association and Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the academic honors dental society.
