You might say that Dr. Cody Bauer was born to be a dentist. He certainly had dentistry on his radar from an early age. As Dr. Cody was growing up, he was able to watch his mother and father, Dr. John and Terri Bauer, run Mansfield Family Dentistry, the family practice, and from this experience he developed a deeply rooted desire to serve and care for his community.
Now, years later, Dr. Cody couldn’t be happier to join his mother and father in their family practice right in the heart of the bustling town. He enjoyed going away to school and was actively involved both at the University of Texas in Austin where he attended college and then at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas for dental school. But once he was ready to settle down it just felt right to return to Mansfield to build a family of his own. Back in Mansfield, he is thrilled to follow in the steps of his father, sharing not only a profession and a practice, but also a dedication to continued education and commitment to the Mansfield community.
“When you have such great role models, things like working hard and helping your neighbors become second nature,” Dr. Cody said. “I’ve never questioned the adage that the more you put into your work, the more you’re able to get back. I just hope to set a similar example for my own kids.”
The Dr. Bauers are joined at Mansfield Family Dentistry by Dr. Mark Mallery and, together with their qualified and dedicated staff, they work hard to change the lives of each patient to sit in a Mansfield Family Dentist chair. The practice offers competitive services such as cosmetic, restorative, and implant dentistry alongside comprehensive family dentistry at affordable and family-friendly rates.
The friendly and inviting atmosphere of Mansfield Family Dentistry makes patients feel at home, and Dr. Cody takes the time to help every patient understand the importance of oral hygiene. He makes sure his patients recognize that there is more to dentistry than cavity control, teaching them proper oral care and emphasizing the fact that a healthy mouth can improve health overall.
Dr. Cody met his wife, Stacey, when he was in dental school. Since then, they’ve welcomed their daughters, Blake and Tenley, and their son, Noah, into the family. Outside of the practice, Dr. Cody stays busy with his many volunteer outreaches, coaching his children in sports, and entertaining guests, but what makes him happiest is spending time with his wife and kids. As Dr. Cody demonstrates the devotion for service and community that he learned from his parents, it’s hard not to wonder if the next generation of Bauers will take note and someday follow in his footsteps.
