I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story

Dennis Baker and Dr. Michael Smith have assisted thousands of people in their journey to lifelong transformation and would be honored to partner with you to help you achieve your health goals. They understand the struggles many go through and are here to help you bring back hope. After several years trying to lose weight, Dennis found Optavia and lost 37 pounds and changed the trajectory of his health. He and Dr. Michael, a board-certified internal medicine physician and WebMD's Chief Medical Director, realized they had a gift in their hands they had to share. Dennis also has a passion for healthy cooking and Dr. Michael is a certified personal trainer. Dr. Michael also lives with an autoimmune condition and has great passion for helping others improve their health concerns through healthy habits. They believe strongly in the power of coaching and work closely with their clients to identify obstacles and bust through them together. Their passion is you and your health goals.
