Mansfield Family Dentistry
Mansfield Family Dentistry is a family practice in every sense. It’s a practice built as much on relationships as on excellent dental care. For Dr. John Bauer, it’s the way that his family caters to the families around them in the Mansfield community. He goes to work each day happy to spend time with his wife and business partner, Terri Bauer, who serves as a dental hygienist and the manager of the practice, and to share the practice with one of his four children, Dr. Cody Bauer, who followed his father’s path into dentistry. Together, the Bauers and their friendly, inviting staff brighten the lives and smiles of their patients with loving care and a wide range of dental services.
For his patients, going to the dentist is a family habit as well. In some cases, Dr. John has cared for three generations of the same family. “What we do is not just fixing teeth,” he says. “It’s about building relationships and actually changing lives by giving people hope, confidence, and a more positive outlook on their life and circumstances.” Dr. John has watched the Mansfield community grow and it’s his joy to dedicate himself to providing the best technical care available and to continue to stay abreast of all innovations in the field of dentistry.
The practice has grown with the community, and is proud to offer cosmetic, restorative, and implant dentistry along with routine dental services. One of the most important things they offer their patients, however, is education. “While we’re happy to see every person who walks through that door, we’re happiest when the visit is under good circumstances,” he says. “With proper patient education, we can ensure the healthiest smiles and better overall health for our patients.”
Over the years as the practice has grown, it’s welcomed more than twenty highly-trained, passionate employees into the fold. These staff members are a valued and integral part of the practice who work as a team to provide a seamless and welcoming experience for each and every patient.
When he’s not taking care of the Mansfield community at large, he spends his time outdoors at the family farm. Family values reign at the Bauer home as well, and the doors are always open for his four children and their growing families. In fact, Dr. John calls himself “a full-time dentist, part-time ranch hand and all-the-time Baba to eleven awesome grandkids”.
Dr. John is proud to say that in Mansfield Family Dentistry’s three decades of practice, he and his staff have never turned away anyone needing their help, no matter the circumstances. He sees giving back to the community as a privilege, and has always felt lucky to be able to improve the lives of his neighbors. He believes there’s nothing more important than family, and patients to his clinic in the heart of Mansfield would agree that the Mansfield Family Dentistry staff and their patients have become something of a family in and of themselves.
