Dr. Christopher Bauer has practiced dentistry for over 11 years, and founded Bauer Dental Co. more than 5 years ago. His goal was to create a modern, future-focused practice where patients could get expert dental care in a safe, friendly, and laid-back environment. Dr. Bauer originally was drawn to dentistry due to his interest in both science and hands-on work. He attended UCSB for his undergraduate education, then moved across the country to Temple University, where he earned his dental degree.
Dr. Bauer is dedicated to continuing his dental education and has stayed up-to-date on the latest techniques and technology after graduating from dental school. Today, he’s a speaker and a trainer, focusing primarily on CEREC and CAD/CAM dentistry. He is also a Key Opinion Leader for multiple dental companies where they ask for his feedback regarding emerging products and technology.
Dr. Bauer’s favorite part of dentistry is seeing how patients react when their smiles are transformed. Eliminating pain, restoring teeth, and touching the lives of patients make dentistry meaningful to Dr. Bauer. When he’s not at our office or training new dentists on CEREC techniques, you’ll find Dr. Bauer golfing at one of Fresno’s many beautiful golf courses, watching sports, and staying busy with his three children.
