Meet the Doctors
Dr. Baylie Carroll
There are several little reasons that made dentistry the perfect career path for Dr. Baylie. Growing up the eldest daughter in a family of seven children, taking care of people has always been in her nature. This, in combination with her love of science, led her to pursue a career in health care. However, Dr. Baylie picked dentistry after shadowing and seeing how rewarding it was that a small demonstration of compassion can have such a positive impact on the patient. Further, she enjoys dentistry because it allows her to work with her hands and meet the challenge of helping restore one of the only parts of the body that can’t heal itself.
Dr. Baylie has lived in Kansas City, MO for the past eight years, where she attended Rockhurst University to receive her degree in biochemistry and then University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry, where she earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS). During dental school, Dr. Baylie was selected to take part in the Endodontic Honors Program, where she gained further education and experience treating root canals. Dr. Baylie is excited to return to the St. Louis area, where she grew up, so that she can help serve the dental needs of the community that raised her.
In her free time Dr. Baylie enjoys reading a good book, cheering for the St. Louis Cardinals and spending time with her family, especially her 10 nieces and nephews. She is also an avid coffee drinker and you can find her serving lattes with her mom from their family coffee camper at the Lake St. Louis Farmer’s Market most Saturdays.
"My experience here has always been a great one. Right from the beginning, everyone is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable. I can admit, I have always hated going to the dentist but my anxiety has lessened significantly since seeing Dr. Blake and his staff. Dr. Blake is very informative and always takes his time to make sure he does a perfect job. I appreciate that greatly as a patient. Highly recommend!"
"Without a doubt this was the best dental experience that I've ever had. From the first consultation, Annie's guidance in deciding on a treatment plan, to the excellent care of Dr. Blake and his great team, I could not be any more pleased with the results. Everyone deserves more than 5 stars for the great service they provide. Just absolutely excited to share how great Twin Oaks is and proud to show off the results with my new smile!!!!! "
"Dr. Blake & his staff are professional & knowledgeable. At the same time, they make you feel comfortable & at ease in a positive & friendly atmosphere. Alissa is an awesome hygienist, but you can't go wrong with any of the others at Twin Oaks. And Dr. Blake is the best with both his skills & personality!"
"I met with Dr. Blake for a consultation for 'Invisalign type' of orthodontics. I was impressed with not only his professionalism but of his staff and office also. I did seek another opinion from another office but Twin Oaks far exceeded my expectations. The location in Ofallon is perfect for me even though they will be moving but only a few miles. Their equipment was updated and they take pride in continuing education. I have had businesses and employees and note these important facts. I will be having the teeth straightening devices applied in a few weeks and we will see if my research is correct about this office"
"I have been going to this location for about 15 years now. That should speak for itself! I love it there and I love the way I am treated by the staff! Dr. Blake is as nice as it gets and I always feel at ease knowing that he and his staff are so well trained in the field of dentistry! This place is the very best!"
