Meet Dr. Rhonda Baldwin
On Orthodontics and My Patients
I love my profession. Being an orthodontist has given me the opportunity to meet and build relationships with so many amazing people. I love getting to know each person during their treatment, and watching them grow and change as their smile changes. Whether I am caring for a child or teen and watching them mature into a confident young adult, or working with someone who has waited years to start their treatment, it’s rewarding to be part of the transformation.
I enjoy creating a beautiful smile while increasing self-esteem and improving a person’s oral health. My days are spent with some of the most incredible people in the world, and I have the privilege of getting to know them while helping each change their life. I truly love every minute of my work!
Background and Education
I decided to go into orthodontics because of the wonderful impact my orthodontist had on my appearance and self-esteem. I grew up with “buck teeth” and the hurt that resulted from childhood bullying. I started orthodontic treatment before my senior year of high school and wore braces for two years of college.
The changes in my appearance as a result of treatment changed how I felt about myself and how others saw me. I felt greater confidence and ease as a result of having braces and I wanted to be part of that same transformation for other people. For more than 25 years now, I have been blessed to watch smiles and personalities blossom — one amazing person at a time!
Prior to practicing orthodontics, I received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the University of Kentucky. That was followed by my orthodontic specialty residency at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, where I obtained my certificate of orthodontics.
The purpose of this practice is to provide outstanding treatment. We strive to maintain and continually advance a comfortable, caring, stress-free atmosphere in which our patients, staff, and doctors can derive maximum satisfaction from their daily experience.
Patients are the most important people in our practice.
Patients are not dependent on us; we are dependent on them.
Patients are not an interruption to our work; they are the purpose of it.
Patients are not outsiders in our practice; they are our practice!
Professional Affiliations and Commitment to Continuing Education
I am a member of the:
- American Association of Orthodontists
- Great Lakes Association of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
- Ohio Dental Association
- Cincinnati Dental Society
I’m a lifelong learner, and through these organizations I have access to numerous continuing educational opportunities. As a result of ongoing research, there are constant advancements in orthodontics. This allows practitioners to provide more comfortable care, with stronger results, in a shorter amount of time.
By actively participating in conferences, lectures, and seminars, I’m able to stay current on the latest developments. This means my patients are always receiving the most up-to-date orthodontic care and treatment available, for the best experience and most incredible new smiles.
Outside of Work
I grew up in Carlisle and have resided in Springboro for 25 years. When I’m not working, a lot of my time revolves around my family, especially my husband Carwell and four children: Chloe, Gabrielle, Mariena, and Jonathan. Our home also includes three cats and a Goldendoodle.
I devote time, weekly, to visiting my parents with their favorite grandpuppy, Teddy, and I talk with my mom every day. Carwell and I like to go to the gym several times per week, enjoy going to the movies, and occasionally return to Buffalo, New York, to catch a football game and visit some of his former teammates.
