Why Did You Decide to Become a Pediatric Dentist?

Dr. Dean became a dentist because he liked the idea of helping people, and he also wanted to have a life outside of work (which can be tricky for people in other healthcare fields)! He became interested in pediatrics after he worked as a summer camp counselor at the Boggy Creek Gang Camp in Orlando, FL for two years while in college. He got to help children with special needs have the time of their lives. Dr. Dean really enjoyed being with the campers, and this motivated him to focus on pediatric dentistry.
