Our Team


Lead Clinical Specialist

I have been in the dental field since 2006. I switched to doing just orthodontics in February 2010 with Dr. Baker at Baker Orthodontics. Then when Dr. Baker retired I stayed on with Dr. Cyrus and Dr. Neelab since September 2022. The atmosphere and patient care we provide is outstanding. The comfort and feel of family are what I love the most. In orthodontics, we have the privilege of getting to know not just the patient but the whole family. We have good laughs when the parent and/or siblings come back to the chair with the patient and share their family stories. I not only have work experience in orthodontics, I had my braces done by Dr. Baker. I can relate to what most patients are experiencing and give them first-hand advice.

I grew up in Escondido and live here now with my husband Armando and our three children, Jason, Leilani, and Jacob. My kids enjoyed coming in for their appointments. They loved seeing the train go around the office and playing in the game room. Best orthodontic office in town!

I started with Dr. Baker in March 2019.  I learned a lot from him and I enjoyed working for him. Now I work for Dr. Cyrus and Dr. Neelab and I’ve been learning a lot from them. I enjoy working with them, it’s so much fun. Everyone in the office makes you feel like you are a part of the office family and it’s an amazing feeling. 

My husband Jose and I have 4 wonderful kids Destiny , Aiden , Sophia, Adeline. 

In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family. We like going to the zoo, hiking, and camping.


Treatment Coordinator

Hi!  I am lucky enough to be your treatment coordinator here at Baker Orthodontics.  It is my job to make sure your orthodontic treatment goes as smoothly as possible and NO stress. From explaining treatment and finances, to getting you prepared for your first appointments, I absolutely love what I do. I started my orthodontic career in 2011 and never looked back! Orthodontics is something I’m very passionate about. The greatest thing about my job is seeing the smile transformations in our patients: not just with their teeth but also the confidence and the glow that comes to their faces! We get to know you and your family because we care for our patients as if they were our own family. 

I have 2 daughters Sophia and Amina, Sophia is currently going through treatment with Dr. Cyrus and loving every step of the way. On our free time we love to go on hikes, beaches and try new restaurants. We really like to experience different cuisines, it’s our favorite.

I’m really excited to meet you and have you become part of our Baker family! 🙂


Front Office Coordinator

I had the privilege of working with Dr Baker for six years until he retired in 2022.  I am very happy that Dr. Cyrus and Dr Neelab kindly took over the practice.  I feel honored to be working with such accomplished and skilled doctors. We are a “family” here at Happier smiles, formerly Baker Orthodontics.  We work hard together to provide the best possible experience for our patients.  

I have lived in San Marcos for twenty-26 years. My husband Sid and I have been blessed with five kids , two son-in-laws and a beautiful little grandchild! In my free time, I love to be outside and spend time with my family. I enjoy traveling and experiencing new and exciting things.


Records & Sterilization Tech

Growing up Baker Orthodontics always felt like a second home with my mom working there. Dr. Baker actually did my braces when I was younger and I always had a great experience at the office. I was so excited when Dr. Cyrus and Dr. Neelab took over the office and asked me to join the team.  

My mom has always been a big inspiration for me and why I wanted to go into the dental field in the first place, one could say it was almost destiny for me to end up here. I really enjoy connecting with my patients and find fulfillment in my work helping others achieve a healthy and beautiful smile through orthodontic treatments.

In my free time, I like to play soccer and enjoy a hot plate of dino nuggets.

Hi there, my name is Sahar! 

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. Cyrus and Dr. Nee from the very early stages of their journey. I was astonished by how talented and hard working this ortho couple is. It’s truly wonderful to see with how much love and passion Dr. Cyrus and Dr. Nee treat patients. Not only do they create a professional environment that welcomes everyone and truly makes you feel like family, but they are also just fun and amazing human beings! 

I grew up in the beautiful city of Zurich, Switzerland and gladly found my way to sunny California. I enjoy traveling and exploring new places. One thing I will never get tired of is watching sunsets by the beach. I love spending quality time with family and friends. I find joy in helping people and putting a smile on their face. From my own orthodontic treatment, I know how much a beautiful smile transformation can do and I feel grateful to be able to pass this feeling over to our patients. I can’t wait to meet you!
