I'll be applying this upcoming cycle to pedo residency.
Any current pedo residents have advice in regards to interviews, matching, application stuff?
I'm open to any feedback. Thank you in advance!

Definitely be able to explain convincingly why you want to go into pediatric dentistry. You will need it for your personal statement and it will definitely be a topic at all of your interviews.

This may seem like common sense to most people but you would be surprised the answers some people have come up with when trying to explain this. Make sure you've thought long and hard about this question. It is pretty clear who has a passion for it and who doesn't.
