I am starting dental school in the fall, and I would like to get an idea of how difficult it is to obtain a position in a pediatric residency program. At this point I could see myself working as a family dentist, but I think I would prefer working strictly in pedo. I am not opposed to hard work, but I don't thrive in an extremely competitive atmosphere, and if trying to get into a pedo program is going to be cut-throat, I'll pass. I'd like to hear some current dental students weigh in. Thanks!
