About Your Doctors

Dr. Melissa Bailey, DDS, MS

 

Growing up, Dr. Bailey was an avid piano player and began teaching piano at the age of 13. She attended the University of California Los Angeles for her undergraduate degree, majoring in music (piano performance), and taught piano for 10 years. Dr. Bailey decided to enter dental school at UCLA’s School of Dentistry, graduating with honors and being inducted into the national dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon. She received her specialty training in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics from Loma Linda University.  Dr. Bailey attends numerous continuing education courses to stay up-to-date with the latest clinical orthodontic techniques and innovations.

The eldest of four children, Dr. Bailey grew up in the San Gabriel Valley of Southern California. She currently resides in the East Bay with her husband, Jeff, and their son, Ben. Marriage to a car enthusiast has allowed Dr. Bailey to learn a lot about cars, though her leisure time is mostly spent traveling, exploring new restaurants, outdoor activities, and playing the piano. Dr. Bailey also volunteers for animal rescue organizations and has been a foster parent for abandoned animals whenever needed.
