Credentials, experience, and associations are extremely important aspects to look for in a pediatric dentist. What makes one stand out from the other? WHO they are. Our Doctor Spotlight series allows our tiny patients and parents to get a glimpse into the doctor's lives. In this article we are featuring Dr. Kim Nixon. Come get to know us!

Dr. Nixon graduated from the University of Detroit in Michigan with a BA in Chemistry before going on to earn a dental degree from Northwestern University in Chicago. She received her Certificate of Pediatric Dentistry from New York’s Columbia University School of Dental Surgery. She knew she wanted to be a pioneering woman in the field of pediatric dentistry and continues to help children receive great dental care through organizations like Give Kids a Smile and NC Missions of Mercy.

Kim Nixon

Why did you decide to focus on pediatric dentistry rather than general dentistry?
I had a great example from my dental school professor about how cool it could be to treat children. It all started with an outreach program on Saturday mornings in Chicago!

What's your favorite color?

Do you have a sweet tooth? If so, what’s your favorite sweet?
I tend to stay away from sweets as much as possible, but I do like Key Lime pie and dark chocolate covered almonds.

Have you always wanted to be a dentist? If not, what did you want to be as a kid?
I knew I wanted to be a dentist as soon as I looked in a career book and noticed only 2% of women were in the field of dentistry at that time. I could have a family and still work, too!

Do you have a role model or a mentor? Why do you look up to them?
I don't have a mentor or role model, however, the values and the demonstration of unconditional love and respect for one another that my parents share give me the motivation to be like them. They are going on 54 years of marriage.

What is your favorite sports team?
I don't have a favorite sports team, but I do cheer for the local teams!

Finish this sentence: When I was a kid...
My twin brother and I would wake up, pack our lunches, and go exploring in the woods together!
