Meet the Doctors
Dr. Damian Black, DMD
Board Certified in Prosthodontics
I was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in South Florida. I attended undergraduate college and dental school for my Bachelor of Science (BS) and Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degrees, respectively, in the dual admissions program at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. After obtaining my DMD in 2010, I commissioned as a captain in the Air Force and completed a 1-year residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD-1) at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi. Afterwards, I completed a 3-year specialty residency in prosthodontics at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas in 2015. At the same time, I obtained my Master of Science (MS) degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. I then had the honor of serving as part of the dental team for five years at Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Virginia. These experiences are where I have grown to become a master clinician, a more effective communicator and educator, and the leader that I never thought I could be. I have been able to use my specialty training to teach other dentists and lab technicians as well. I am committed to serving the patients of Baylee Dental with integrity, honesty, and the excellent oral healthcare they deserve.
In my spare time, I indulge in fitness and wellness. I also love to explore thrilling experiences such as hiking, skydiving (indoors), zip lining, traveling with friends, and enjoying rollercoasters for the kid in me!
I thank all veterans for their service and offer a 10% discount on all treatment services to you!
Dr. Catherine Baintinger, DMD
I was born and raised in New Jersey. I moved to Gainesville, Florida to attend University of Florida where I earned both my Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Nutritional Sciences and my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree, respectively, in the dual admissions program.
I am committed to a lifelong education in dentistry, and I have already completed over 50 hours of continuing education while in dental school. I received my Botox certification for management of orofacial pain and headaches. I am a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Association of Women Dentists, and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. I have traveled throughout the country to study and attend continuing education conferences where I have learned from cutting-edge leaders in dental science, materials, and technology.
Pursuing a profession in dentistry has been a lifelong dream. Beyond connecting with my patients and listening to what their overall goal is as a patient of Baylee, I am passionate about the transformation dentistry can have on them. My treatment goal is ensuring total patient comfort and relaxation while utilizing the most modern dental techniques and materials available.
As an avid sports fan, you can always strike up a conversation with me about Gator sports, baseball or golf. I also enjoy traveling the world and trying new food. So, if you have a good restaurant or golf course recommendation, please let me know! In my free time, I also enjoy running and visiting the theme parks, especially Disney. I have completed many races at Disney, including 4 marathons. Overall, I am ecstatic to join the team at Baylee Dental and will continue the tradition of clinical excellence and compassionate care.
