Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D., not only known for her remarkable achievements in the dental field but also for her blazing wrestling career, has recently opened up about the balance between her two professions. The AEW superstar and former women’s champion spoke candidly about her career during an exchange on Twitter on August 2, 2023, revealing how she has navigated these two demanding roles.
Baker, who has been hailed as a trailblazer in the world of wrestling, admits to taking a small step back from her dentistry practice in order to fully devote herself to AEW. While she still maintains her passion and practice in dentistry, her commitment to AEW has become her primary focus.
In her own words, Baker stated: "I’ve taken a step small back from dentistry for months now to focus on AEW. I’m still a dentist, but not full time. I wanted to make sure I’m available whenever/wherever AEW calls.
Also, a long day of dentistry can be just as rough on back/neck injuries as pro wrestling."
Balancing the Ring and Dental Chair
This decision comes as no surprise for those who have been following Baker's meteoric rise in the wrestling arena.
Her dedication to her craft is palpable, as she is constantly pushing boundaries and setting new standards in both the AEW women’s division and her dental practice. Earlier in the day, Baker also shared her thoughts in an interview with TV Insider.
She reflected on the booking of the AEW women's division, acknowledging that there's always room for improvement. Yet, she also expressed concern over fan negativity, believing that it plays a key role in hindering progress.
Her insights reflect a deep understanding of the industry and a commitment to elevating women's wrestling to new heights. While Baker’s step back from full-time dentistry represents a shift in her career, fans of both her wrestling and dental work can rest assured that she remains committed to excellence in both fields.
Her ability to juggle these two demanding careers speaks volumes about her talent, determination, and unique skill set. Those interested in staying updated on Dr. Britt Baker's dual career as a dentist and wrestling superstar can follow her on Twitter at @RealBrittBaker.
