Being a pediatric dentist is really the best of both worlds in dentistry. I get to be a specialist, an expert in a particular field of dentistry, but it is also primary care. I get to see my patients regularly, I get to watch them grow and mature and become wonderful members of their communities. It is the most fun specialty too. Who wouldn’t want to go to work each day and get to chat with kids about fun stuff? I get to learn about all the new things that kids are into doing, what shows they like to watch, what games they play, what sports they are playing what books they are reading. There is so much laughter in a pediatric practice and that keeps the days fun and helps to make, what could otherwise be a scary experience for a child, a fun and enjoyable one.
